Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones (finger) is scheduled to have the pin removed from his pinky Tuesday, Feb. 16.
Huddle Up: Jones rushed for nearly 1,000 yards during the regular season and posted 139 yards in three playoff games. He likely will be the starting running back if he remains with the Bucs and can be a No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones led all qualified running backs with 7.2 yards per rush inside the tackles with seven or fewer defenders in the box, according to Next Gen Stats.
Huddle Up: Jones averaged 5.1 yards per carry overall and just missed out on a 1,000-yard campaign. A lack of involvement in the passing game caps his upside, but he should push for RB2 production in 2021, especially if the Buccaneers don't re-sign Leonard Fournette.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones (quad, finger) was upgraded to a full practice Friday, Jan. 22, and removed from the injury report for the NFC Championship game against the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: Leonard Fournette has been a fantasy beast through Tampa Bay's first two playoff games, but that production has largely been a product of two touchdowns and a fair amount of work in the passing game. His rushing efficiency has remained right around his uninspiring regular-season levels. All of that is to say Jones should probably be considered the favorite to handle most of the rushing workload this weekend, which should be enough to make a strong contrarian option in DFS.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones (finger, calf) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday, Jan. 20.
Huddle Up: Jones ran 13 times for 62 yards against the New Orleans Saints last week after being considered questionable for most of the practice week. He should be more involved this week, but the game script isn't likely to be as favorable for the Bucs as it was in the NFC Divisional Round. Jones will be a touchdown-dependent fantasy FLEX option this week.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones (quadriceps, finger) appears to have a good chance to play in the NFC Divisional Round game against the New Orleans Saints Sunday, Jan. 17, after participating in the walkthrough Saturday, Jan. 16. A final decision about his status will be made when the team arrives at the stadium.
Huddle Up: Jones had been listed as questionable on the injury report after participating in two of the team's three practice sessions during the week on a limited basis. However, he should be viewed as a somewhat risky fantasy play this weekend, since RB Leonard Fournette has already been declared the starter versus the Saints.

Huddle Up: Jones was active but didn't play in the wild-card win over Washington last week, and it's certainly going to be tough to trust him if he's active this time around as Leonard Fournette already has been declared the starter Sunday in New Orleans.
