Buccaneers | Ronald Jones behind the aerial curve

Tue, 21 Aug 2018 07:43:53 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones is working on his skills as a receiver. "In college, there's probably a reason they only threw to (Jones) 17 times," running backs coach Tim Spencer said. "But I think he's worked on his game, he's worked on his hands, his eyes. To me, (the thing) I see with him, is eye-hand coordination and following the ball, concentrating and believing you can get the job done."

Fantasy Tip: That first sentence is an eye-popping quote and certainly is an indictment on Jones at this stage of his young career. Peyton Barber has a firm grasp on the job, but Jones has upside as an RB4.

Buccaneers | Ryan Fitzpatrick still set to start

Mon, 20 Aug 2018 08:23:06 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is still in line to start in the team's Week 1 opener in place of the suspended Jameis Winston even though fellow QB Ryan W. Griffin has had a strong preseason, according to head coach Dirk Koetter.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick will be useful only for Weeks 1-3 in two-QB leagues while Winston serves his disciplinary suspension.

Buccaneers | Peyton Barber praised by head coach

Sun, 19 Aug 2018 20:23:32 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber has performed like a starting running back during the preseason, according to head coach Dirk Koetter. "He's doing everything he should be doing right now, and I think if we went out there and gave it to Peyton 20 times, we'd like what he does," Koetter said.

Fantasy Tip: Barber looks poised to open the year as the starter and should be a RB3 candidate for at least the first several weeks. Ronald Jones will likely earn more snaps as the year goes on, so grabbing Jones a few rounds after selecting Barber isn't a bad idea.

Buccaneers | Charles Sims expected to be fine

Sun, 19 Aug 2018 16:37:42 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims (knee) did not suffer a serious injury in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 18, and he is expected to be fine for the start of the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: Sims is in a dogfight for a roster spot, let alone any fantasy appeal, as Shaun Wilson has impressed and so has Ronald Jones. Peyton Barber and Jacquizz Rodgers remain planted at the top of the depth chart, too. If Sims does make the team, he isn't likely to make much of an impact. Leave him to the waiver wire for now.

Buccaneers | Coach not worried about Ronald Jones

Sat, 18 Aug 2018 21:04:48 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones rushed four times for two yards in a 30-14 preseason win over the Tennessee Titans Saturday, Aug. 18, but head coach Dirk Koetter said the performance had nothing to do with Jones' effort. "We just haven't been able to spring him loose," Koetter said.

Fantasy Tip: Peyton Barber appears to be ahead of Jones right now for early-down work, but Jones is the more explosive back and has the better long-term upside. Grab him as a RB4, and he could emerge as a flex option by the end of the year.

Buccaneers | Peyton Barber leads backfield

Sat, 18 Aug 2018 20:47:54 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber rushed six times for a team-high 32 yards and caught one pass for three yards in a 30-14 preseason win over the Tennessee Titans Saturday, Aug. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Ronald Jones is lurking, but Barber seems locked into the starting role for now and could be a RB3 to start the year. Pairing Barber with Jones might be a solid strategy in case Jones eventually overtakes Barber.
