RB Kenjon Barner - Atlanta Falcons
|5-9, 196||Born: 4-28-1989||College: Oregon||Drafted: Round 6, pick 182 (2013)|
2018 Week 7 vs CHI (10 / 36 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
With Sony Michel going down with injury, Barner saw several touches. He wasn't able to do a ton with them, but the important note is whether the Patriots sign another RB. If not, he will see a role while Michel is out.
2015 Week 11 vs TB (7 / 37 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Kenjon Barner saw his first action of the season as the third running back in rotation. He managed some nice gains and looked to have a nice combination of agility and acceleration. But, in true Eagles fashion, he dropped his only target of the day on screen pass that may have gone for a nice chunk of yards. He'll be relegated RB4 when Ryan Mathews returns.
2015 Week 12 vs DET (7 / 30 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 1 / 0 rec)
Kenjon Barner had an increase in playing time for a second straight week with Ryan Mathews ruled out. He looked sharp on his seven carries and matched DeMarco Murray's 30-yard rushing total with half the attempts. But there's nothing about his play that's going to earn him a split into the Eagles pie once Mathews returns.
2015 Week 13 vs NE (9 / 39 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 7 / 0 rec)
Filling in for Ryan Mathews, who missed a third straight game, Kenjon Barner chipped in 11 touches for 46 total yards. The Eagles offensive line played a great game on Sunday, which allowed their speedy backs in Darren Sproles and Barner to find creases against the Patriots linebackers. Barner's acceleration through the gaps and around the edges makes him a great fit for the Eagles scheme. But he lost a fumble late in the fourth quarter which could have cost the Eagles the win. It was an otherwise solid day for the former track star.
2015 Week 16 vs WAS (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 3 / 1 / -7 / 0 rec)
Kenjon Barner played the second most snaps among Eagles running backs but didn't see a look until the fourth quarter and had a miserable time in limited action. He dropped two screen passes and was swallowed in the backfield for a loss of seven yards.
2015 Week 17 vs NYG (5 / 18 / 0 rush, 5 / 5 / 21 / 0 rec)
For some reason Kenjon Barner saw a lot more action without Chip Kelly on the sideline. His 10 total touches ranked second to DeMarco Murray's 12, but Barner failed to make much use of them. Seven of his 18 rushing yards came on one play and 12 of his 21 receiving yards came on one reception.
2013 Week 5 vs ARI (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)
Making his regular season debut, the former Oregon Duck was targeted on a quick screen, which was dropped. Barner was utilised as a third running back in pistol and inverted veer looks, but it seemed the coaching staff was simply getting his feet wet. If preseason play is any indicator, Barner will be utilised mainly as a pass-catcher and Žscat back' until he picks up his pass protection.
