As it stands in mid-June, Payton Barber is still the "starter" in Tampa. Nobody actually believes that will last, however. Rather, the Bucs are making it seem like Jones is earning his role. Expect him to be the head dog within the next two months, which in that offense, will make him an RB2 from the start.

Ronald Jones to get 15-20 touches?

Tampa Bay Times staff writer Rick Stroud wrote about the Bucs' first- and second-year players and surmised that second-round rookie running back Ronald Jones "could post the biggest numbers since he should get 15 to 20 touches per game." That would translate out to 240-320 touches in a 16-game season, which is a substantial workload for a rookie rusher that is expected to also cede some carries to Peyton Barber and passing-down work to Charles Sims.

Fantasy Impact

If Jones gets that kind of workload, he's going to potentially be an RB2 right out of the gate in a potent Tampa Bay offense that should give him ample opportunities to score. Our own Mike Tagliere has Jones as his No. 3 player in the 2018 draft class, making him a nice value at 1.06 and a player to target in the fourth or fifth round of redraft leagues.
