Draft note
by John Paulsen
Jones finished as the No. 26 back last season (half-PPR), splitting time with Peyton Barber and Dare Ogunbowale. Barber is gone, but the Bucs drafted Ke’Shawn Vaughn in the third round, and Bruce Arians said that Vaughn can play on all three downs. Jones did run well last season, but never seemed to have the full confidence of the coaching staff. He averaged the fourth-most broken tackles per attempt last season and showed well as a receiver. He has reportedly been working very hard on his pass protection, which was his bugaboo in 2019. (He was benched for blowing a pass block, and now has the statuesque Tom Brady to protect.) If he has truly buttoned up his pass pro, he could turn into a three-down back for the Bucs.

TB RB Ronald Jones - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs. Atlanta Falcons

Ronald Jones was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list, but he was limited in practice with his lingering finger injury. His health is worth monitoring this week, but he certainly has a chance to play. When active, Jones has been a steady force in the Bucs' backfield, averaging 81.9 scrimmage yards per game despite having to battle for snaps with Leonard Fournette. In the six games when he isn't battling Fournette as much (playing 50% of the offensive snaps or more), Jones is averaging 121.5 scrimmage yards. Jones does draw a tough matchup against the Falcons this week (No. 2 aFPA), and his injury could limit his snaps, but his performance should be solid. We like Jones as a strong RB2 play in Week 17.
