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.

TB RB Ronald Jones - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 at Carolina Panthers

Bruce Arians is forced into playing Ronald Jones this week as Leonard Fournette suffered an injury in Week 15. Jones played well in Fournette's absence, rushing for 63 yards on eight carries (7.8 ypc). But even with Fournette out, Arians turned to Ke'Shawn Vaughn just about as often. Jones played on 22 offensive snaps compared to Vaughn's 19 snaps. Vaughn also matched Jones in targets (2) and had just five fewer carries. The Bucs also added Le'Veon Bell who likely won't have enough of an impact on his own, but could easily steal playing time away from Jones. Jones should still end up leading this backfield in touches, but it's hard to anticipate him matching Fournette's production. To make matters worse, Jones will draw a tough Panthers matchup this week as Carolina has given up the fourth-fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs. Jones is a talented back who had a 1,000-yard season a year ago, so he's more than capable of playing well this week in Fournette's absence. We like him as a lower-end RB1.

TB RB Ronald Jones - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 vs. New Orleans Saints

It was another rough game for Ronald Jones last week, who was out-rushed by Tom Brady in both attempts and yards. Jones played on just eight snaps last week, the sixth time this season he's played 10 offensive snaps or less. Jones simply isn't on the field enough to warrant fantasy consideration. He can be left on waivers in Week 15.

TB RB Ronald Jones - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 @ Buffalo Bills

Ronald Jones only played two snaps last week as he exited the game early with a non-COVID illness. He isn't listed on the injury report heading into Week 14 so we'd assume he'll be fine to play. Although it doesn't really matter because Jones barely plays anyways. He should be off the fantasy radar for Week 14.

TB RB Ronald Jones - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 at Atlanta Falcons

Even with Leonard Fournette scoring four touchdowns, Ronald Jones still somehow managed to find the endzone last week. It's the second straight game he's scored a touchdown after scoring just once in his first nine games. Outside of the score, Jones played his usual role of playing between 15-20% of the offensive snaps with under 10 carries and no targets. Jones doesn't see the field enough to warrant fantasy consideration, even though he's been an endzone threat the past two games.

TB RB Ronald Jones - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 at Indianapolis Colts

After playing just one snap in Week 10, the Bucs remembered they had Ronald Jones on the team and gave him a few more opportunities in Week 11. He finished with eight carries for 33 yards and a touchdown while seeing no targets. He only played on 19% of the offensive snaps though, meaning he's still only hit 20% or more of the offensive snaps in just one game all season. He's simply not on the field enough to warrant fantasy consideration.

TB RB Ronald Jones - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 vs. New York Giants

Ronald Jones hit a new low point last week as he played on just one offensive snap. It's truly strange to see Jones, someone who had 1,000 scrimmage yards a season ago, just not even see the field at this point in the season. He can safely be placed on waivers in your league as he has no fantasy appeal at the moment.
