Not only have I been bullish on rookie running backs, but I'm bullish on the Bucs offense as a whole. When you have the firepower of Mike Evans, Desean Jackson, Chris Godwin, O.J. Howard, and Cameron Brate in front of you, it's not likely that a defense will ever make it their priority to stop the running back. Those who are concerned about Peyton Barber shouldn't be, as the Bucs would've just snagged one of the free agent running backs available to pair with him. Instead, they used a high second-round pick on the running back who has a similar style to Jamaal Charles. Playing in what could be a top-five scoring offense is never a bad thing.

Ronald Jones II struggling with pass-pro at camp

Tampa Bay Buccaneers beat writer Rick Stroud is reporting rookie RB Ronald Jones II has struggled with pass-protection in training camp.

Fantasy Impact

With a consensus RB25 ADP (55 overall), I've been fading Jones all offseason, and in the wake of this report, I'm not sorry about it. The Buccaneers are in dire need of a clear-cut RB1 as the departed Doug Martin proved to be as inconsistent as they come, especially following his big pay-day. And while Jones enters his first year as a pro-highly-touted, I believe hell cede carries to Payton Barber on the early downs as well as touches to Charles Sims on passing downs. At least early on, it wouldn't surprise me if the Buccaneers employed an RBBC while they attempt to find their identity while Jameis Winston is out with his suspension. Unless his ADP begins to trend downwards, I view Jones as a high-risk commodity at a time in a fantasy draft in which you can't afford t miss on a running back, especially one that will likely serve as your RB2.
