Mark Ringo
Sleepers and Busts
Ronald Jones was hurt late in 2020 which set the table for Playoff Lenny to emerge. It sounds like Jones is higher on the pecking order. If he is, there are a lot of TDs there for the taking because of Tampa's high octane offense. They should be even better in 2021. Brady actually knows the playbook this year. How scary is that? The addition of Gio Bernard relegates Jones to 1st and 2nd down, but that's still valuable in this offense. 
Kyle Yates

 Oh man, what an absolute mess of a situation here in Houston right now. Deshaun Watson seems intent on never playing another down for this team, which means that we're going to see one of Tyrod Taylor, Davis Mills, or Jeff Driskel at QB in 2021. That's automatically a significant downgrade for this offense and it carries a trickle effect to every position group. On top of that, the RB room is extremely crowded and none of the names are really ones that should get you excited. At the time of writing, the Texans have Johnson, Mark Ingram, Phillip Lindsay, Rex Burkhead, Dontrell Hilliard, Buddy Howell, and Scottie Phillips all on this depth chart. If Johnson was essentially the lone back again this season, he might be worth drafting in fantasy drafts. However, with his age and the state of the offense around him, it's probably best to let someone else try to make it work with the veteran RB. My Very Early Projection: 163-669-4 rushing & 45-383-1 receiving.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
I know Leonard Fournette had a strong finish to the season while Jones was hurt, but we mustn't forget that Jones averaged 5.14 yards per carry and nearly hit 1,000 rushing yards despite finishing with just 192 carries. There are just eight running backs in the post-merger era who've finished with as many yards as Jones did with 192 or less carries. He's not going to be heavily utilized in the passing game, which severely caps his upside, but Jones is the Bucs best ball carrier.

Lenny F returns home, ensuring RoJo, at best, is in a starter in a tough to project RBBC, at worst (and likeliest) - the lesser half of a committee. Gross.Phillip Lindsay + Ingram + No QB + Gross overall offense = no, thanks.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
 Johnson's value is going to depend on whether the Texans repair their relationship with DeShaun Watson or find a suitable replacement. Johnson is in the last year of his deal and is probably no better than a low-end RB3.
