Mon, 19 Dec 2016 13:24:55 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles RB Kenjon Barner (hamstring) will not play Thursday, Dec. 22, against the New York Giants. OG Allen Barbre (hamstring), OG Isaac Seumalo (pectoral) and OT Halapoulivaati Vaitai (knee) are expected to return, however.
Sun, 18 Dec 2016 11:32:57 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles RB Kenjon Barner (hamstring) suffered a hamstring injury in Week 15 and is considered questionable to return.
Fri, 16 Dec 2016 10:36:11 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles RBs Kenjon Barner and Byron Marshall will share the passing-down/breather-back roles in Week 15 versus the Baltimore Ravens left behind by Darren Sproles, who has been ruled out.
Fantasy Tip: Head coach Doug Pederson said Barner will return punts as well. Neither back is worth a look in fantasy, although Philadelphia likely has no prayer of establishing the run with Ryan Mathews against Baltimore's stout rush defense. Expect another 50 pass attempts from Carson Wentz, with the majority of those passes headed in the direction of Jordan Matthews, Zach Ertz and Trey Burton.
Fri, 16 Dec 2016 07:54:18 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles RB Kenjon Barner will return punts in Week 15, according to head coach Doug Pederson.
Fantasy Tip: This may limit his potential to take over for Darren Sproles (concussion), who is out for Week 15. Barner isn't a viable flex option against the Baltimore Ravens.
Sun, 11 Dec 2016 08:48:12 -0800
The Philadelphia Eagles have declared OG Brandon Brooks, OT Dillon Gordon, WR Dorial Green-Beckham, OT Halapoulivaati Vaitai, LB Kamu Grugier-Hill, RB Kenjon Barner, DE Taylor Hart inactive for Week 14.
Sun, 20 Nov 2016 22:52:21 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles RB Kenjon Barner rushed three times for 17 yards in the Week 11 game against the Seattle Seahawks and he did not have any receptions on three targets.
Fantasy Tip: Barner might continue to see more playing time with Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles each exiting with injuries. If Mathews and Sproles are each sidelined Barner could be a sleeper in deeper fantasy leagues as a flex option against the banged up Packers defense in Week 12.
Mon, 31 Oct 2016 19:04:35 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles RB Kenjon Barner is averaging 5.3 yards per carry on 19 attempts this season, but he has just five carries since the team's bye in Week 4.
Fantasy Tip: As long as Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles are healthy, Barner will have limited touches and very little fantasy appeal.
Fri, 16 Sep 2016 17:07:40 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles CB Leodis McKelvin (hamstring) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 16. RB Kenjon Barner (non-injury), WR Bryce Treggs (knee) and TE Trey Burton (calf) fully participated in practice.
Thu, 15 Sep 2016 13:20:50 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles RB Kenjon Barner (non-injury related) and CB Leodis McKelvin (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 15. TE Trey Burton (calf) and WR Bryce Treggs (knee) were full participants.
Fri, 19 Aug 2016 06:46:21 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles RB Kenjon Barner has made it clear that he is the No. 2 running back behind RB Ryan Mathews, according to beat writer Reuben Frank. He has rushed 13 times for 76 yards in the first two preseason games.
Fantasy Tip: Barner may be the No. 2, but Darren Sproles is the second back to own in fantasy - especially in PPR leagues. Mathews does have a decorated injury history, which could make Barner a factor. However, he doesn't have much upside beyond a RB5 handcuff for now.
Thu, 04 Aug 2016 14:04:57 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles RB Kenjon Barner is in noticeably better shape and is having a solid training camp. Barner is focused on improving, not on the coaching change that occurred with head coach Doug Pederson now at the helm. "You can't worry about a situation that's no longer your situation," Barner said. "My situation right now is Doug Pederson and this offense." Barner has seen increased repetitions with RBs Ryan Mathews (ankle) and Wendell Smallwood (quadriceps) nursing injuries. He's trying to prove he has the durability to withstand a larger workload while his counterparts are sidelined.
Fantasy Tip: Barner is part of a fairly crowded backfield in Philadelphia with Mathews, Darren Sproles and Smallwood all likely ahead of him currently. Barner is a valuable return man, though, and may see more opportunities in the passing game considering his physique and agility. For now, view Barner as a late-round option with more upside in PPR leagues.
Mon, 20 Jun 2016 23:10:57 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles RB Kenjon Barner is on the bubble as RB Byron Marshall projects as a younger version of him.
Fantasy Tip: A caveat will be if the team trades Darren Sproles, which opens a spot for Barner. For now, Barner has no fantasy luster unless something changes. Marshall could be an RB5 flyer.
Sun, 12 Jun 2016 12:12:05 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews has taken most of the first-team repetitions out of the backfield this offseason, but RBs Kenjon Barner and Darren Sproles shared those reps with Mathews, too. Head coach Doug Pederson expects a committee with those three backs and RB Wendell Smallwood.
Fantasy Tip: Mathews should still be the first Philadelphia running back taken in fantasy drafts, at least for standard formats. Sproles is a PPR delight and is worth a low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 spot in those formats.
Mon, 30 May 2016 02:51:57 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles RB Kenjon Barner has been working with the starters during OTAs with RB Ryan Mathews (groin) slowed by injury and RB Darren Sproles not participating, and beat writer Eliot Shorr-Parks believes Barner's edge over Mathews in speed and agility could earn him the starting job permanently.
Fantasy Tip: Mathews could still end up seeing a lot of the early-down work, but Barner is worth grabbing in the later rounds, especially in PPR leagues. He could end up being a sneaky flex option.
Sun, 24 Apr 2016 10:50:05 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles could be traded this offseason, in the opinion of NJ.com's Elliot Shorr-Parks. Shorr-Parks views Sproles as a logical and likely trade candidate, with Ryan Mathews and Kenjon Barner as the two running backs who will make the final roster.
Fantasy Tip: Sproles would be a valuable asset to any NFL backfield, and it would make sense for the Eagles to trade him if they want another draft pick after trading away so many for the No. 2 overall pick this year. Mathews figures to be the primary ball carrier for now, and he has RB2 upside if he can stay healthy.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Kenjon Barner (ankle), OT Lane Johnson (shoulder), DT Bennie Logan (knee), CB Eric Rowe (ankle), DE Cedric Thornton (ankle) and S Walter Thurmond (elbow, shoulder) practiced fully Friday, Dec. 11, and are probable for Week 14.
Thu, 10 Dec 2015 12:09:40 -0800

Tue, 08 Dec 2015 10:42:05 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray may no longer be the team's lead running back, especially with RB Ryan Mathews (concussion) returning to practice Tuesday, Dec. 8. Offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur did not confirm that Murray was still the leading running back, and the Eagles remain confident in all of their running backs. Murray had just eight carries for 24 yards in the win over the New England Patriots in Week 13, fewer than RBs Darren Sproles and Kenjon Barner.
Fantasy Tip: With the Eagles non-committal on Murray's ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) status in the backfield or workload, you'll want to avoid him on FantasyScore against the Buffalo Bills this weekend. In fact, staying away from this backfield entirely might be the best plan with Mathews ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) on his way back.
Mon, 07 Dec 2015 07:09:43 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray played just 14 snaps Sunday, Dec. 6, and had eight carries against the New England Patriots. Murray averaged 36 snaps per game before Sunday. His previous low this season was 25. RB Darren Sproles had 15 carries, the third-most of his career and his most since he had 18 in 2009. RB Kenjon Barner had nine carries, which was a career high. Head coach Chip Kelly explained the distribution of carries by saying he believed that the smaller, faster Barner and Sproles would be better matchups for the Eagles against the Patriots' larger linebackers.
Fantasy Tip: This could be a one-game ordeal, but Sproles had 66 yards on 15 carries and four grabs for 34 yards. It's a situation that's worth monitoring as the Eagles prepare for Buffalo Bills in Week 14.
Fri, 20 Nov 2015 07:02:33 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (concussion) is out for Week 11. RB Kenjon Barner will have a role Sunday, Nov. 22.
Fantasy Tip: Darren Sproles ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) would figure to have the first crack at replacing Mathews on third downs. Barner ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) doesn't figure to have a big enough role against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to be a FantasyScore factor. DeMarco Murray ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) should see a value bump as well, and he's a solid RB2 play.
Sun, 15 Nov 2015 08:58:02 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB Kenjon Barner is expected to make the practice squad, according to Geoff Mosher of CSNPhilly.com.
Wed, 03 Jun 2015 23:09:26 -0700
The Philadelphia Eagles have liked what they have seen by RB Kenjon Barner during organized team activities (OTAs).
Fantasy Tip: With rushing champ DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews ahead of him on the depth chart it would take a long-term injury to either for Barner to have meaningful fantasy appeal. However, Murray and Mathews havenít exactly been durable during their NFL careers, so the chance could be there sooner rather than later.

The Philadelphia Eagles acquired RB Kenjon Barner from the Carolina Panthers Tuesday, Aug. 19, for a conditional seventh-round pick in 2015.
