Bucs coach Bruce Arians says Ronald Jones II and Leonard Fournette will continue splitting time at running back this season. (Pewter Report)

Fantasy Impact:

“Of all the positions, it’s probably the one where those two guys will compete,” Arians said. “But they’re both gonna play. They’re so talented and they both bring so much to the table. Hopefully if they’re both healthy, they are splitting time. I know fantasy doesn’t like that, but those two guys…I mean, RoJo is one of the best runners I’ve been around. Lenny had that great run in the playoffs. He showed what they drafted him for in the top 5. So we’re blessed to have this group of backs, with Ke’Shawn and Gio. It’s a hell of a group.” This is a crowded backfield, so the fantasy ceiling of all these guys is limited barring an injury. Fournette's ability to play in the passing game makes him a safer better than Jones, but it's unclear how much work Gio Bernard will steal through the air. Ultimately both Jones and Fournette should be bench players for your fantasy team come Week 1.
