2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
Ronald Jones enters his third season out of USC, and it has already been an interesting career. In his first season, he seemed to have a difficult time picking up the system and therefore did not play much. He only received 23 carries in 9 games, for 44 total rushing yards. Many in the fantasy football community were already labeling him a bust after that season, since there was a lot of hope for him to take over the backfield as a rookie.

He seemed to come in with a much better handle on the offense in his sophomore season, and had 172 carries for 724 yards, a 4.2 yards per carry. The 4.2 average is certainly respectable when the poor offensive line of the Bucs is factored in. He showed both power and speed, and even in the passing game he was fairly effective. He caught 31 of his 40 targets, and only registered one drop. He also averaged 10 yards per reception, an excellent number for a running back.

Despite all of this, and despite the offense being on the verge of an upgrade at quarterback, many are still very low on Jones. He is being drafted around the 7th round, and because he still has the inside track to start at running back, this is an excellent value. He is one of my mid-round running back targets as a result.

However, there are certainly risks. Jones has always been seen as a liability in pass protection, and if he is poor in that area, Brady will not put up with it for long. He will insist on getting a back in the lineup who knows all of the protections perfectly, even if that ends up being a less-talented back like Dare Ogunbowale. On top of that risk, the Bucs did draft Ke'Shawn Vaughn out of Vanderbilt in the third round. While Jones was drafted in the second round, there is still risk that Vaughn becomes the preferred option to start in the backfield.

If we go by the recent coaching decisions of head coach Bruce Arians, he will use all of the backs in various roles this season. That also limits Jones' upside, even if it decreases the risk that he will be completely benched. In the end, Jones is another boom-bust pick, with a role in the offense that is not yet clearly defined. He may be worth the risk in the end, but whether you draft him will likely depend on your risk tolerance and your overall draft plan.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Leonard Fournette expected to be active, but limited
Still not 100 percent
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Oct 18, 7:00 am

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Buccaneers’ RB Leonard Fournette, listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Packers, is expected to be active but limited, per source. It is not expected to be a regular workload for Fournette, who is improved from his ankle injury, but still not 100 percent. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Fournette was active last week but was only going to play in case of an emergency. Ronald Jones remains the back to own in Tampa Bay and makes for a decent RB2 today in a high total game (55.0) against the Packers.


Injury Leonard Fournette, Godwin ruled out for Week 4
Wait and see on Scotty Miller
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 2, 12:24 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Both Leonard Fournette and Chris Godwin are officially out for Sunday against the Chargers. They’re waiting to see on Scotty Miller. (Jenna Laine on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Miller did some work on Friday and has a chance to play but fantasy owners should follow his status over the weekend. With Fournette out, Ronald Jones is a solid RB2 option this week against the Chargers. LeSean McCoy could see increase in usage but remains off the fantasy radar.


Buccaneers release RB Dare Ogunbowale, K Matt Gay
Crowded RB room
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 4, 8:54 am

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The #Bucs are waiving K Matt Gay and RB Dare Ogunbowale, per multiple reports. @RapSheet reported Ogunbowale’ release and @TomPelissero had Gay first. (Rick Stroud on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: With the signing of Leonard Fournette, one of Dare and LeSean McCoy was going to be released. Dare got the short straw which is somewhat surprising considering he contributes on special teams. Fournette, Ronald Jones and McCoy are your top 3 running backs while Ryan Succop wins the kicking job, if you're keeping score at home.
