    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones rushed 10 times for four yards in a 25-10 preseason loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars Thursday, Aug. 30.

    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.

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones rushed six times for seven yards and caught one pass for 37 yards in a 33-30 preseason loss to the Detroit Lions Friday, Aug. 24.

    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.

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones is working on his skills as a receiver. 'In college, there's probably a reason they only threw to (Jones) 17 times,' running backs coach Tim Spencer said. 'But I think he's worked on his game, he's worked on his hands, his eyes. To me, (the thing) I see with him, is eye-hand coordination and following the ball, concentrating and believing you can get the job done.'

    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.

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones rushed four times for two yards in a 30-14 preseason win over the Tennessee Titans Saturday, Aug. 18, but head coach Dirk Koetter said the performance had nothing to do with Jones' effort. 'We just haven?t been able to spring him loose,' Koetter said.

    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.

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones' performance in his first preseason game was called 'average' by head coach Dirk Koetter, but Koetter praised Jones for his pass protection.

    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.

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones rushed eight times for nine yards and a touchdown and failed to catch his only target in a 26-24 preseason win over the Miami Dolphins Thursday, Aug. 9.

    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.

    Tampa bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones could post the biggest numbers of the team's defense-heavy draft class since he should get 15 to 20 touches per game, according to Rick Stroud of The Tampa Bay Times.

    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

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones signed his four-year rookie deal Thursday, June 14. Financial terms were not disclosed.

    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

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones is being envisioned as a 'three-down back' by running backs coach Tim Spencer, who added that he would want Jones 'to be able to catch the ball because we have some things we'd like to give him with his speed.'

    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.

  • Posted: 5/13/2018 6:56pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones has been catching a variety of passes during rookie minicamp and will have the opportunity to play in space and line up as a receiver in head coach Dirk Koetter's offense.

    Huddle Up: Jones is positioned to be one of the more impactful rookie backs this season. He's a potential RB3 in redraft leagues, and he is worthy of a top-five pick in rookie drafts.

  • Posted: 5/3/2018 7:24pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones adds 'juice' that the backfield has been lacking, according to general manager Jason Licht.

    Huddle Up: Jones instantly becomes the biggest home run threat in Tampa Bay's backfield, and he could quickly emerge as the lead back. He's a RB3 with upside in redraft leagues and a top-five pick in rookie drafts.

  • Posted: 4/27/2018 4:33pm ET

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected Southern California RB Ronald Jones with the 38th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft Friday, April 27.

    Huddle Up: Jones should have a chance to compete for the starting running back job during training camp. He could be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in all leagues if he receives a majority of the carries in 2018.
