2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
Jones was downright dreadful in his rookie season after the Bucs used a second-round pick on the former USC Trojan in the 2018 NFL Draft. After starting the season off with a poor minicamp and even worse training camp, Jones could not beat out Peyton Barber or Doug Martin for the starting job in Tampa. Jones averaged less than two yards per carry, while looking indecisive and overmatched when he did get on the field.

The positive for Jones is the team did not add a rookie in the draft or a free agent veteran to compete for carries. Jones also will not have to deal with Dirk Koetter's terrible run scheme and should get a boost with Bruce Arians similar to what Andre Ellington did a few years back in Arizona.

Jones is a risky pick with tremendous upside. If you use a late-round pick on him and he busts you do not lose much. But if he hits and has low-end RB2 value, he could be one of the better late-round running backs in 2019.

Ronald Jones separating himself?
HC: "Has earned the right to start"
By: Doug Orth | Mon Nov 4, 5:35 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
HC Bruce Arians says Ronald Jones has earned the right to start and play more snaps. Says Peyton Barber has done nothing wrong but Jones has been the most explosive back. (Buccaneers.com - Scott Smith)

FFToday's Take: While fantasy owners will take declarations like this whenever they can get them, it's a bit sad that the Bucs waited until midway through the season to determine what was fairly obvious in the preseason: Jones is the better back at this point. With that said, Tampa Bay's ability and commitment to the run has been inconsistent at best. Owners should view Jones as a decent flex option with RB2 upside, which he may be able to reach in Week 10 against the Cardinals.
