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. 
Nick Zylak
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.Ito is a perfect high upside pick late in drafts. The Falcons spent two first round picks on offensive lineman, and signed more in FA. Freeman has a chance to crush it this season, but he's also suffered a massive amount of injuries in recent years. He's had a pulled hamstring, a hip strain, three separate concussions, an MCL sprain, a PCL sprain, both knee and foot bruises, and most recently required sports hernia surgery. It's not crazy to think his best days might be behind him. With Coleman now in SF, Ito is one more Freeman injury away from being a massive asset in fantasy. That's the upside I'm looking for late in drafts.
Mike Tagliere

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 rookieAfter an impressive rookie campaign where he played more than expected, Smith will look to build on his 117-touch, 467-yard rookie season. He'll play alongside Devonta Freeman who's dealt with some injuries as of late and is now 27 years old. The Falcons may choose to employ a timeshare, but it's likely it's a 70/30 split between the two. Smith would offer weekly RB2 potential if Freeman were to miss any time, making him a valuable handcuff who has some standalone value even without injury
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.Smith has flashed at times but that doesn't mean he is even in the same neighborhood for talent or has any shot outside of an injury to take over the starting job from Freeman. If an injury were to happen, Smith would be an excellent flex play, however.
