TB RB Ronald Jones - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at New York Jets
Ronald Jones didn't run well last week in a tough matchup, but he saw a lot of volume which turned into production. Jones finished with 20 carries for 65 yards and a touchdown while finishing 2-16 on three targets. Meanwhile, backup Ke'Shawn Vaughn saw seven touches, and Le'Veon Bell played on just three snaps. Jones played 52% of the offensive snaps compared to Vaughn's 36%. It's a much higher split than we were seeing with Leonard Fournette and Jones before Fournette's injury. But even with the higher split, Jones is seeing enough touches to make him a strong fantasy option heading into Week 17. Especially because he's facing a Jets defense that's given up the most average fantasy points to running backs this year. New York has given up the 4th-most rushing yards and the 2nd-most receiving yards to running backs so far. Jones should be viewed as a must-start RB1 this week.
