Ronald Jones II Week 2 Outlook - Falcons at Buccaneers

By Kyle Yates (FantasyPros), Fri, Sep 17th 2021, 3:25pm EDT

Well, this is a complete mess, huh? After fumbling last week - on a solid play by Demarcus Lawrence - Jones was completely relegated to the bench and watched Fournette take over this backfield. It seemed like we were trending towards never seeing Jones on the field again for the rest of the season, but Bruce Arians did what he's done previously and has brought Jones out of the dog house and has elevated him right back into the starting job against Atlanta. Could Jones absolutely go off in this matchup? 100%. Could he also fumble again and ride the bench the majority of the game? Absolutely. This situation in Tampa Bay has the potential to be one of the greatest situations for a running back in all of fantasy football, but the way Bruce Arians manages it just makes it a complete headache. Jones can be viewed as a high-end RB3 again this week. He has the potential to blow up, but he also has the potential to disappear and that's not what I'm looking for in my RB2 or higher.
