Draft note
by John Paulsen
Jones was the No. 16 fantasy RB last season, turning in 1,143 yards and eight touchdowns on 220 touches (in 14 games). He averaged 16.0 touches per game prior to landing on the COVID-19 list. After returning in Week 17, he averaged 11.8 touches (all carries, no catches) in the team’s final four games, including the postseason. Meanwhile, Leonard Fournette started the team’s final seven games, averaging 16.9 touches for 87 yards and 1.0 touchdowns, including 135 total yards and a score against the Chiefs in the Super Bowl. Jones was a more efficient runner–5.09 yards per carry–during the season, while Fournette averaged just 3.78 YPC. In the postseason, the production flipped. Fournette posted 4.69 YPC while Jones managed just 3.97 YPC. Did “Playoff Lenny” do enough to win the RB1 job heading into the season? Earlier this summer, Bruce Arians indicated that they’d be “splitting time” if they were both healthy. Complicating matters, Giovani Bernard was added to the mix, so the third-down snaps for both players are under serious pressure.

TB RB Ronald Jones - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 at Los Angeles Rams

Ronald Jones got out of Bruce Arians' doghouse, but the grass wasn't much greener. He did get decent playing time, seeing 26 snaps compared to Leonard Fournette's 31 (out of 63). But he didn't get many touches, getting six carries and one reception for a total of 36 scrimmage yards. It's weird to see the Bucs just not use someone who had 1,000 scrimmage yards and a 5.1 ypc just last season, but that's where we're at. Jones is mostly off of the fantasy radar until Arians realizes he has a good running back.
