Ronald Jones II News

Buccaneers Have Faith In Ronald Jones

Tampa Bay Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht said that, "We have a lot of faith in Ronald Jones II. We have more faith in him than we ever have." Jones had a dreadful rookie season in 2018, but he was much better last year in a timeshare with Peyton Barber, running the ball 172 times for 724 yards (4.2 yards per carry) and six touchdowns in 16 games (nine starts). Barber is now gone, so theoretically Jones should have a bigger workload. However, he still leaves a lot to be desired with pass protection, and the Bucs must keep the pocket clean for new quarterback Tom Brady. Dare Ogunbowale is next up behind Jones, and the Bucs could address the position further in the draft. Jones' value will depend on who else is splitting time with him and if he can improve in pass protection, which will give him a chance to be on the field more during third downs.

Bucs Looking For Pass-Catching Back Alongside Ronald Jones

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians said that the team will look to bring in a "pass-catching back" in free agency and/or the draft to complement running back Ronald Jones II. Jones was brutal in his rookie season but stepped up in his sophomore campaign to run 172 times for 724 yards (4.2 yards per carry) and six touchdowns in 16 games (nine starts). He was splitting time with Peyton Barber, although he was the much better back for most of the season. He corralled 31 passes for 309 yards in the passing game, but his pass blocking still leaves a lot to be desired, and Tampa can't afford mistakes with Tom Brady under center in 2020. If Jones is sharing touches once again, especially through the air, it'll significantly lower his fantasy ceiling. Just because Brady is in town won't necessarily mean that Jones will break out. Don't overpay.

Ronald Jones II Shines In Week 17

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Ronald Jones II rushed 11 times for 106 yards in the Bucs Week 17 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. He also added two catches for 10 yards and lost a fumble on the day. Jones was unable to separate himself from fellow backfield mate Peyton Barber this season, leading to inconsistent performances, but was by far the best playmaker in the Bucs backfield. If Jones can work on getting better at pass protection this offseason, he could very well be in store for a third-year breakout.
