Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones could face new competition for snaps on third down next season, according to head coach Bruce Arians. 'We'd love to have a pass-catching back,' Arians said.
Huddle Up: Jones rebounded in 2019 after a dreadful rookie campaign, tallying 1,031 yards from scrimmage and catching 31 passes. He should still handle most of the work on early downs, but if Jones isn't on the field in passing situations, it is going to limit his ceiling, especially with Tom Brady now under center. He's best viewed as a flex option for the time being.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones rushed for 77 yards and one touchdown on 14 carries against the Houston Texans in Week 16. He also caught three passes for 32 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Jones has received at least 10 carries in four of the last five games and had one of his better games this week. He can be at least a flex option in fantasy leagues next week.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones rushed 11 times for 23 yards in Week 15 against the Detroit Lions and he had a catch for 26 years on three targets.
Huddle Up: The Lions bottled up both Jones and Peyton Barber, but they couldn't stop the pass. Jones will look for more running room in Week 16 against the Houston Texans, but he should be treated as nothing more than a RB4 in most formats at this point.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones rushed 11 times for 36 yards in Week 14 against the Indianapolis Colts and he had four grabs for 23 yards on five targets.
Huddle Up: Jones is more of a danger in the pass game than on the ground. He remains a decent low-end RB3 or flex fantasy play in PPR leagues heading into Week 15 in Detroit with lesser appeal in standard formats.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones is still the team's starter, according to head coach Bruce Arians Wednesday, Dec. 4.
Huddle Up: Jones rushed just six times for eight yards and didn't have a single ball thrown his way against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 13, as Peyton Barber rushed 17 times for 44 yards and two touchdowns. Jones has been up and down all year and has often disappointed fantasy managers who start him as an RB2 or flex option. He's likely too volatile to trust in playoff matchups.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones rushed for eight yards on six carries against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 13.
Huddle Up: Jones entered the game with a touchdown in three of the previous four games but was not a big part of the offense this week. He should have a bigger role next week and has a chance to be a flex option.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones faces the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 13, and the Jaguars have allowed 200-plus rushing yards in three consecutive games. For the year, Jacksonville has allowed the second most rushing touchdowns and fourth most rushing yards per game.
Huddle Up: Jones has remained inconsistent despite taking on a much larger role in his second season, but a matchup with a porous Jacksonville defense gives him RB2 upside in Week 13. He's worth a start.
