Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
As you survey the raw statistics from Tampa's backfield during the 2020 NFL regular season, it's pretty easy to see that Jones was the better RB. On 192 carries, Jones averaged 5.1 YPC compared to Fournette's 3.8 YPC on only 97 attempts. All logic points to Jones being the starting RB in 2021, but Arians' concern with fumbles has made this situation extremely murky from a fantasy perspective. Additionally, the presence of Gio Bernard in this backfield adds to the confusion. While Jones will most likely be incredibly efficient again, it's not going to lead to much consistent fantasy production with how many mouths there are to feed in this backfield. At his current ADP, it's fine to take the shot on Jones to see if he can rise above the rest of the backfield, but there's also the possibility that you're left without a depth piece on your roster if Fournette is suddenly the lead option.I was a big fan of Michael Carter in this 2021 pre-draft process and had him ranked as a top-5 RB. While he fell further in the NFL Draft than I was anticipating, he fell into a perfect landing spot for fantasy football. The Jets have an oft-injured Tevin Coleman above him on the depth chart and a second-year RB in La'Mical Perine that certainly doesn't have this job locked down by any means. With Carter's agility and explosiveness in this scheme, there's a strong possibility that he takes over this job a few weeks into the season. The Jets will rotate in RBs, so it's unlikely that Carter gets a massive workload, but he has the talent to capitalize on his opportunity. You might have to be patient for a bit if you end up drafting Carter in the mid/late rounds this year, but he could end up being a very solid contributor for your roster. My Very Early Projection: 165-791-5 rushing & 53-452-2 receiving.

Ronald Jones was hurt late in 2020 which set the table for Playoff Lenny to emerge. This will be a camp battle for the starting spot, but Coach Arians said, "I know fantasy doesn't like this, but both guys will play." You're right coach, We don't like it. The addition of Gio Bernard will take whatever receptions either Jones or Fournette made last year away. Basically whoever I pick the other guy will win the starting job. If not for the Lombardi Trophy and ring I'd make the old salt walk the plank haha! Batten down the hatches. it looks like rough seas ahead me hearties. Argh!

Lenny F returns home. Gio Bernard signed. RoJo is likely to split early-down work while losing receiving looks. Always quick to be placed in the dog house. Easy avoid for me8/23 - So much for reports he was running with the ones. Fourth RB to enter Preseason Week 2, after entering after Ty Johnson in Week 1. Chances of being a true impact player are dwindling, but this still wouldn't be the hardest depth chart to climb

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.Don't sleep on Carter in redraft formats. The only player standing in his way of 15-plus touches is Tevin Coleman, who's played just 22-of-32 games the last two seasons. On top of that, he's never been efficient when asked to carry a heavy workload. Carter reminded me of Justin Forsett while scouting him. He does everything well, and though he's undersized, that shouldn't stop him from getting plenty of opportunity, especially in the passing game. The Jets are no longer an Adam Gase-led team. There's value to be had in this offense, and Carter is one of the best late-round values in fantasy football.

 Was my favorite rookie RB film review - can be a true difference-maker in the passing game, and he's savvy and slippery between the tackles

 He posted 3,345 yards (2,536 rushing) & 45 total touchdowns as a senior. Translated that into a great career at UNC, totaling 3,404 rushing yards, 656 receiving yards, & 28 total touchdowns in 44 games. @DMendy02
