Huddle Up: Jones, a second-round selection last season out of USC, was a rookie bust last season, rushing for all of 44 yards and a TD on 23 carries. Jones can hardly go anywhere but up, but don't be surprised if the Bucs draft another running back next week.

Huddle Up: Although the offensive line didn't do Jones any favors, his abysmal numbers are hard to justify under any circumstances. He's no more than a late-round lottery ticket at this point.

Huddle Up: Jones played in only nine games this season and recorded only 77 total yards and one touchdown. Owners can keep an eye on the situation during the offseason, but he probably will not be drafted in most leagues.

Huddle Up: The rookie second-round pick will miss his first game since Week 3, leaving Peyton Barber and Jacquizz Rodgers to handle the main RB load Sunday against the Panthers. Rookie RB Shaun Wilson will be active as well.

Huddle Up: No real surprise here as Jones is expected to miss a game or two, leaving Peyton Barber and Jacquizz Rodgers to handle the RB duties.

Huddle Up: Jones was receiving some playing time over the last few weeks but probably will miss multiple games because of the injury. Peyton Barber should receive a majority of the work at running back and could be a low-end No. 2 running back or flex option in fantasy leagues this week.

Huddle Up: Jones has been receiving some touches over the last two weeks but could miss time depending on the severity of the injury. He has a chance to take over the starting job if he is healthy and could be owned in deeper leagues but is not a starting option at this time.

Huddle Up: Jones had seven touches to 11 for Peyton Barber, but no one was able to go very far against a surprisingly stiff Browns run defense. The former USC standout Jones is only worth a look as a RB4 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 8 against the Bengals.

Huddle Up: The Buccaneers had little choice but to activate their second-round pick after Peyton Barber averaged 2.9 yards per carry over the first three games. Ironically, Jones didn't fare any better against Chicago. Tampa Bay is going to need to do some soul-searching during its Week 5 bye, as its unexpected hot start has faded quickly. The Buccaneers desperately need big-play ability out of the backfield, which is something Jones can give them. Look for his role to continue to grow when the team returns to action in Week 6.

Huddle Up: Jones, the Bucs' second-round pick out of USC, was a healthy scratch for the team's first three games, but with Peyton Barber producing only 124 rushing yards and one 7-yard reception in three starts, Tampa looks like it will see if the rookie can provide a spark. If he's been on your bench, keep him there for now and see what develops.

Huddle Up: Jones had been deactivated for the first three games of the regular season, with Peyton Barber receiving the bulk of the playing time in the Tampa Bay backfield. Jones makes a risky play in all fantasy formats since it remains to be seen how involved he will be in the offensive game plan.
Posted: 8/30/2018 8:17pm ET
Huddle Up: Jones has struggled throughout the preseason, and it has opened the door for Peyton Barber to enter the season as the top back. Jones should still be rostered, but he will be a risky flex play heading into Week 1.
Posted: 8/24/2018 9:38pm ET
Huddle Up: Jones hasn't found much room to work during the preseason. He could see his role gradually increase during the regular season, but Peyton Barber looks like the Tampa Bay back to own right now.
Posted: 8/21/2018 7:43am ET
Huddle Up: That first sentence is an eye-popping quote and certainly is an indictment on Jones at this stage of his young career. Peyton Barber has a firm grasp on the job, but Jones has upside as an RB4.
Posted: 8/18/2018 9:04pm ET
Huddle Up: Peyton Barber appears to be ahead of Jones right now for early-down work, but Jones is the more explosive back and has the better long-term upside. Grab him as a RB4, and he could emerge as a flex option by the end of the year.
Posted: 8/10/2018 6:26pm ET
Huddle Up: Jones should receive his share of opportunities on early downs, and if he can continue to progress in pass protection, he could start to expand his role on passing downs and his fantasy value. He's a better option in keeper leagues, but he could be a useful flex play in redraft leagues by the end of the year.
Posted: 8/9/2018 8:26pm ET
Huddle Up: Jones was drafted to add some explosiveness to the running game, but it remains to be seen how big of a workload he will handle as a rookie. He has the most upside of any of Tampa Bay's back, but it's best to draft him as a RB3 for now.
Posted: 6/17/2018 11:05am ET
Huddle Up: It's unclear whether or not Stroud meant he can see Jones eventually take on that kind of workload right away or down the road. It has been widely assumed and reported Jones will begin his rookie season by sharing early-down touches with Peyton Barber while ceding third-down work to Charles Sims. That should still be the expectation for now, but Jones is also a solid bet to move into the role Stroud is describing later in the season. He should be drafted as a RB3 but has immense upside.
Posted: 6/14/2018 10:56am ET
Huddle Up: Jones provides the Buccaneers with an immediate threat out of the backfield, particularly in the passing game. He'll lose a decent amount of touches to Peyton Barber and Charles Sims, but Jones has RB3 appeal at worst with added value in PPR leagues.
Posted: 6/5/2018 2:15am ET
Huddle Up: Jones will be one of this year's rookies that is put in a meaningful position for his club right out of the gate, as it's even possible he leads the Bucs' running game in touches by the end of the season. Although Peyton Barber emerged at the end of last season and did a respectable job, Jones might have the higher ceiling, making him a worthwhile FLEX pick in fantasy drafts.
