Mark Barron Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Fantasy Football News 2022

Most Recent Shark Bites

The Rams have released MLB James Laurinaitis and DE Chris Long. Laurinaitis spent the past 7 years starting every game for St. Louis but isn't a special talent at this point -- at least not enough to be worth the $5.25 million in space his ouster cleared under the salary cap. Long will turn 31 in March and started just 11 games over the past 2 seasons because of injuries. He also totaled only 4 sacks over that stretch. The Rams' top 2 backups at DE -- William Hayes and Eugene Sims -- will hit free agency in March, so we'll see what the team does at that position. According to ESPN's Nick Wagoner, St. Louis plans to move OLB Alec Ogletree to the middle and try to re-sign S/LB Mark Barron to continue playing the weak-side LB spot that he took over when Ogletree got hurt last season.

Rams OLB Mark Barron (concussion) returned to a full practice Friday  and is probable for Sunday's game at San Francisco. That gives IDP owners back 1 of the most consistent fantasy scorers of the year among DBs.

Rams OLB/S Mark Barron left Sunday's game at Seattle after suffering a concussion. He'll need to pass through the league protocol to be able to play next Sunday at San Francisco. The Rams have also hoped to get OLB Alec Ogletree back from injury for the finale. It'll be a situation to watch this week for IDP owners.

The Bucs traded S Mark Barron to the Rams on Tuesday for 4th- and 6th-round picks, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. It's a somewhat odd move for a Rams team that already seemed stronger at safety than many other spots. Our guess is that DC Gregg Williams (and maybe HC Jeff Fisher, a former DC) bought into the talent of Barron -- a former #7 overall pick -- after finding him available, as opposed to hitting the market in search of a safety. We'll see whether Barron takes over for T.J. McDonald or Rodney McLeod, but his skill set would seem to fit McDonald's role more. The SS has ranked 3rd among safeties so far in percentage of run snaps spent "in the box." Don't expect Barron to start right away. We'll see how quickly the Rams can work him in. Tampa, meanwhile, has Bradley MacDougald and Major Wright as options to step in at safety.

Bucs S Mark Barron is inactive for the 2nd straight week because of a hamstring injury.  S Keith Tandy figures to start again in his place and carries IDP upside against a high-powered Saints pass offense.

Bucs S Mark Barron is questionable for Sunday's finale at New Orleans after missing Week 16 with a hamstring injury.  Barron put in limited practices all week, though, indicating he should be available.  We'll keep an eye on his status when the inactives come out Sunday morning.

Bucs S Dashon Goldson is inactive for today's visit to Seattle with a knee injury.  Fellow S Mark Barron (hip) is active, however.  He still faces a tough matchup for his fantasy outlook and carries lagging numbers into the game.  You should have a better IDP option.

Bucs S Mark Barron is questionable for Sunday's matchup with Seattle.  He was limited in practice all week with a hip injury that had him "probable" heading into Week 8.  We'll be watching the reports through the weekend -- up until the Sunday inactives -- but we expect Barron to play.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed FS Dashon Goldson for 5 years at $41.25 million. The former Niner got his big payday 2 years after returning to San Francisco on a 1-year "prove it" deal and a season after claiming the Niners' franchise tag. Goldson was easily the best cover safety on the market. He'll immediately help the deep-coverage shortcomings that plagued the Bucs last season. Goldson's presence could allow 2nd-year SS Mark Barron to creep a little closer to the line. Goldson's fantasy value will depend on big plays, making him a tough DB to count on in your IDP league. His arrival might signal the end of Ronde Barber's career.

After moving down from 5th, the Bucs got the draft's consensus top safety in Mark Barron. The Alabama All-American figures to step into the starting lineup right away on a team thin at safety. Only Tanard Jackson and Sean Jones played 300 snaps or more at safety for the Bucs last year. Jackson is gone already. Jones is OK at best. Barron is an all-around talent capable of playing in coverage or coming up against the run. He should keep busy in a division with lots of offensive talent. Barron looks like he should go among the top 5 rookies off the IDP draft board and will be a starter across leagues with DB spots.
