Hill only lasted a couple of days before getting cut, meaning he was likely only signed as an insurance policy for the running back room in this unique offseason. Hill could turn up as a veteran option somewhere else given the uncertainty surrounding this season, but he is unlikely to pay fantasy dividends as he has not played in the NFL since 2018 and is coming off a torn ACL.
Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Buccaneers Head Coach Bruce Arians announced that RB Ronald Jones will be the "main guy" in the Tampa Bay backfield this season and will "carry the load" while the other backs find their role.
The Buccaneers signing of LeSean McCoy last week had fantasy drafters worried about Jones' fantasy prospects but Arians cleared up any uncertainty on Wednesday when he explicitly annointed Jones as Tampa's lead back, at least for early-down rushing work. Rookie RB Ke'Shawn Vaughn sparked intrigue in the fantasy community when he landed in Tampa, but he remains on the reserve/COVID list and is clearly behind Jones on the depth chart. It still seems unlikely that Jones gets a true workhorse role this season, but Arians' latest comments should instill confidence regarding his rushing workload and give his ADP a slight bump.
