Week 8 PPR Rankings
Ronald Jones II Note

Jones had been looking terrific on the ground the past several weeks, but his deficiencies in the receiving game reared their ugly head yet again last week. Jones now has four drops on 26 targets this season. With Fournette healthy now and right behind him on the depth chart, he can't afford to continue to drop the football. Jones is hanging on by a thread to this job and one more drop, or missed blitz pickup, and Jones could be riding the bench for a very long time. He's still worth rolling out as a mid-range RB2 due to the other available options, but he absolutely comes with risk.

Leonard Fournette Note

Fournette stepped in last week and was heavily involved in this offense. He was explosive on the ground, averaging 4.5 yards per carry, and was also heavily targeted out of the backfield. Fournette is in strong FLEX consideration this week, or could even be rolled out as a low-end RB2/high-end RB3 if you're in need of a fill-in option. There's also the slim possibility that Fournette just simply outright wins this job sooner than later.
