One of the Tampa Bay RBs is going to produce this season. Right now, it's just a guessing game as to which one it will be. Will it be Jones, who knows this system? Or will it be the third-round rookie RB, Ke'Shawn Vaughn? Jones struggled last season in pass protection and as a receiver, which are two incredibly important traits to Bruce Arians and Tom Brady. If Vaughn can excel in those areas, he's going to get onto the field ahead of Jones. I'm currently projecting Jones to begin the season as the starter, but I believe we'll see Vaughn take over sooner than later.With Dalvin Cook potentially holding out this season, Mattison should be on everyone's radar in the mid-rounds. He's in the right offense, and he has the talent, to be a RB1 each week that Cook misses.

Hail to Fantasy Football
The Bucs drafted Ke'Shawn Vaughn, but RoJo could still be the starter Week 1. Back up slightly, and I have him ABOVE Vaughn.Also cracks my top-50 RBs with Dalvin Cook a potential holdout...
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
Jones tallied a strong 10.0 yards per catch on his 31 receptions. Pro Football Focus graded him just 73rd among all RBs in receiving. He fared better by Football Outsiders metrics, though, ranking 17th in DVOA and 20th in DYAR among 50 qualifying backs. PFF liked his rushing better, grading Jones 43rd at the position. FO had him 24th among 45 qualifiers in rushing DVOA, though at a rate below average-level performance. Fantasy wise, Jones ranked 35th in PPR points per game. @SchaufDSI'm not taking the gamble on his bump in ADP since Cook threatened a holdout.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Ronald Jones had a disappointing sophomore season, splitting carries with reliable plodder Peyton Barber and struggling with pass-protection. Nevertheless, there were positive signs for the 22-year-old as he started to establish himself with a couple of 100+ yard performances to end the season. Sadly, the Buccs have muddied the waters by drafting Ke'Shawn Vaughn and discussing bringing in a veteran. That makes RoJo very hard to trust this season. The upside is that Bruce Arians rarely trusts his rookies out of the gate and it's possible Jones gets your season off to a blistering start. He can be paired with Vaughn though I don't love that tactic as a committee is a real risk. I prefer Jones as a zero-RB early-season gamble who may just pay off in a big way.Alexander Mattison looked like the handcuff to own for much of 2019, until he went down right before Cook's injury and never got to enjoy the lead role. Mattison once again projects as a high-upside handcuff with weekly playability in blow-out wins for the Vikings.

We heard the Bucs say all offseason that Jones was their guy. We didn't even hear about them meeting with any of the free agent running backs. Then we heard the name Keshawn Vaughn in the third round, creating a problem for Jones. When teams select a running back on Day 2, it's typically to play them right out of the gate, even if it's not a clear-cut loss of the job for Jones. No matter which way you slice it, he has some new and improved competition.He's one of the best handcuffs in fantasy football. There were times in 2019 where he looked like Dalvin Cook on the field, which is a high compliment. We also cannot pretend that Cook has been the picture of perfect health throughout his three years in the NFL. Mattison won't have much value without a Cook injury, but that's okay when you draft him in the later rounds.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
 Mattison is the best handcuff in fantasy football - period. He excelled last year whenever he got on the field, averaging 4.6 yards per carry, and clearly looked capable of taking on a featured role if called upon. On a team that ran the ball 48% last year (4th-most in the league), Mattison could be a league-winner if Dalvin Cook were to miss significant time, and should be stashed in every league.
