The 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 rookieThe Chiefs traded Hyde to the Texans on August 31st, which wasn't all that surprising considering they were likely to cut him. The Texans obviously felt the need to add a workhorse type back alongside Duke Johnson, so Hyde is likely to have a role of 10-12 touches per week, though most will be carries. He's nothing more than a mediocre RB4 in fantasy drafts.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
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.The Chiefs traded Hyde to the Texans, and while fantasy owners may have wanted him to be a part of Andy Reid's offense, he has an easier path to playing-time with Houston. Duke may still be the early-season favorite to lead the team in carries, but Hyde has a chance to fall into a Jordan Howard type of role before long.
Kevin Roberts

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. 
Kevin Wheeler

 The sentiment among Chiefs training camp reports are that Carlos Hyde is firmly on the roster bubble. Anecdotal though it may be, when the OC and RB coach were asked about Hyde they showered him with back handed compliments hinting at age, veteran status, and leadership. @JhawkChalk89

Fantasy Football Advice
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.No matter what you think of Damien Williams, Hyde is a good pick late in drafts. He's not a very good RB, but the actual skill level of a RB matters very little. If Williams suffers an injury, then Hyde is going to be a high end RB 2. You likely won't be able to use Hyde unless that happens, but you shouldn't expect to use your picks in this range anyways. Take Hyde and the upside that comes with him.
