 There is upside with Jones, but he was very bad last year and he's presently banged up. He's a fine bench add, but he's a gamble.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
With the recent news coming out about Derrius Guice dealing with a setback, it seems likely that Washington will run AP into the ground, at least until Guice returns at full strength. That, of course, doesn't mean AP will be efficient or score touchdowns for this lousy offense, but touches do lead to fantasy scoring so don't be ashamed if he is your RB3 entering the season.Forget last year when Jones was dreadful under Dirk Koetter's offense and burred behind Peyton Barber on the depth chart. This is a new scheme with Bruce Arians, who just so happens to be a genius for running games. If Jones starts, he should fly up draft boards in August.
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
I will not be drafting AP this season. He's an early down only RB, who's going to split carries with a superior RB. Guice is likely to get stronger as the season progresses, so it's possible that you get a few usable weeks out of him. The issue is that even if he gets some solid volume...he's going to be on one of the worst teams in the league. Washington isn't likely to have many positive game scripts, so it's a fairly easy situation to avoid.As a 21-year-old last season he entered the NFL as a second round pick into a backfield that looked like it was all his. Because of that, there were reports that he didn't exactly put in maximum effort into his training and his health. So, during camp we all heard the reports that Barber was somehow winning the job. Jones proceeded to get 23 total carries…for 44 pathetic yards and a single TD. But here's the thing, he was an out of shape 21-year-old behind a terrible offensive line. In fact, he was hit at or behind the line of scrimmage on 13 of those 23 carries. Barber proceeded to take his 234 carries for just 871 yards…which is a garbage 3.7 YPC. He also gained just 92 yards on his 20 receptions. That's an embarrassing 4.6 YPR. So, what did the Bucs do in the draft and FA after that terrible season for the RB's? Nothing. They didn't draft any competition. The only back they brought in Andre Ellington in FA. This is now Jones backfield to lose. Unfortunately, there's a very real chance he actually loses it. The most recent reports indicate that this might be a committee, which isn't good news for a team that struggles to run the football, and doesn't pass to their RB's. Keep an eye on this situation.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Peterson said he wants to rush for another 1,000 yards this season. Well, yeah, but how does he do that with a healthy Derrius Guice, Chris Thompson, and Bryce Love? It's either Guice isn't going to be ready to start the season, or Peterson is dreaming. If Guice isn't ready to start the year, Peterson should offer low-end RB2 value, but from everything that's been said, they're expecting Guice to be ready. Peterson is likely nothing more than a handcuff to GuiceThe Bucs told us all we needed to know in the draft and free agency - they don't feel like they need to add another running back. No one is suggesting they're confident Jones will tear the league up, but you should be confident that he's the starter in Bruce Arians' offense, which has historically netted great results. Peyton Barber isn't the long-term answer, so look for them to find out if Jones is, which requires more than the 30 touches he got as a rookie
