Buccaneers | Peyton Barber considered starter

Mon, 13 Aug 2018 10:43:13 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber is currently considered the team's starting running back, according to head coach Dirk Koetter. Koetter said the team also plans to use RB Ronald Jones this season but thought Jones' performance in the first preseason game was average.

Fantasy Tip: Barber may be the starter but will be sharing touches with Jones and Jacquizz Rodgers. There is a good chance that Jones will take over the starting job at some point during the 2018 season. Barber could be a No. 3 fantasy running back at this point, but owners may also want to select Jones if they draft Barber.

Buccaneers | Mixed review for Ronald Jones

Fri, 10 Aug 2018 18:26:07 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones' performance in his first preseason game was called "average" by head coach Dirk Koetter, but Koetter praised Jones for his pass protection.

Fantasy Tip: Jones should receive his share of opportunities on early downs, and if he can continue to progress in pass protection, he could start to expand his role on passing downs and his fantasy value. He's a better option in keeper leagues, but he could be a useful flex play in redraft leagues by the end of the year.

Buccaneers | Ronald Jones bottled up

Thu, 09 Aug 2018 20:26:28 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones rushed eight times for nine yards and a touchdown and failed to catch his only target in a 26-24 preseason win over the Miami Dolphins Thursday, Aug. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Jones was drafted to add some explosiveness to the running game, but it remains to be seen how big of a workload he will handle as a rookie. He has the most upside of any of Tampa Bay's back, but it's best to draft him as a RB3 for now.

Buccaneers | Ronald Jones listed as No. 3 RB

Mon, 06 Aug 2018 14:15:23 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones is listed as the third running back on the Buccaneers' first unofficial depth chart behind RBs Peyton Barber and Jacquizz Rodgers.

Fantasy Tip: Take this with a grain of salt. Early depth charts don't carry a lot of importance. Jones possesses the most upside of any Tampa Bay running back no matter where he's listed. Barber warrants consideration in the middle to late rounds as more of a standard draftee.

Buccaneers | Ronald Jones to get heavy workload quickly?

Sun, 17 Jun 2018 11:05:34 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones could post the biggest numbers of the team's defense-heavy draft class since he should get 15 to 20 touches per game, according to Rick Stroud of The Tampa Bay Times.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear whether or not Stroud meant he can see Jones taking on that kind of workload right away or down the road. It has been widely assumed and reported Jones will begin his rookie season by sharing early-down touches with Peyton Barber while ceding third-down work to Charles Sims. That should still be the expectation for now, but Jones is also a solid bet to move into the role Stroud is describing later in the season. He should be drafted as a RB3 but has immense upside.

Buccaneers | Ronald Jones inks contract

Thu, 14 Jun 2018 10:56:14 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones signed his four-year rookie deal Thursday, June 14. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Jones provides the Buccaneers with an immediate threat out of the backfield, particularly in the passing game. He'll lose a decent amount of touches to Peyton Barber and Charles Sims, but Jones has RB3 appeal at worst with added value in PPR leagues.

Buccaneers | Ronald Jones to be factor in passing game

Tue, 05 Jun 2018 02:15:09 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones is being envisioned as a "three-down back" by running backs coach Tim Spencer, who added that he would want Jones "to be able to catch the ball because we have some things we'd like to give him with his speed."

Fantasy Tip: Jones will be one of this year's rookies that is put in a meaningful position for his club right out of the gate, as it's even possible he leads the Bucs' running game in touches by the end of the season. Although Peyton Barber emerged at the end of last season and did a respectable job, Jones might have the higher ceiling, making him a worthwhile FLEX pick in fantasy drafts.

Buccaneers | Ronald Jones to play every down?

Sun, 13 May 2018 18:56:51 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones has been catching a variety of passes during rookie minicamp and will have the opportunity to play in space and line up as a receiver in head coach Dirk Koetter's offense.

Fantasy Tip: Jones is positioned to be one of the more impactful rookie backs this season. He's a potential RB3 in redraft leagues, and he is worthy of a top-five pick in rookie drafts.

Buccaneers | Ronald Jones adds new element

Thu, 03 May 2018 19:24:57 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones adds "juice" that the backfield has been lacking, according to general manager Jason Licht.

Fantasy Tip: Jones instantly becomes the biggest home run threat in Tampa Bay's backfield, and he could quickly emerge as the lead back. He's a RB3 with upside in redraft leagues and a top-five pick in rookie drafts.

Buccaneers | Tampa adds Ronald Jones

Fri, 27 Apr 2018 16:33:09 -0700

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected Southern California RB Ronald Jones with the 38th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft Friday, April 27.

Fantasy Tip: Jones should have a chance to compete for the starting running back job during training camp. He could be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in all leagues if he receives a majority of the carries in 2018.
