BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team Leagues

OWNED IN: 25% of Leagues

ANALYSIS: Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Ronald Jones has a different situation  from fellow first-year back Nick Chubb, in that Jones already has a significant opportunity that has been presented to him, but his ability to capitalize remains in question. He emerged in Week 4, after Dirk Koetter’s lingering reluctance to activate him finally subsided, although he managed just 29 yards on 10 carries (2.9 YPC).

While his output was hardly stellar, his competition for touches consists solely of Peyton Barber, who has consistently delivered uninspiring numbers by managing just 148 yards on 50 attempts (3.0 YPC). Barber’s failure to secure Tampa Bay's RB1 responsibilities should result in Jones being allotted a growing percentage of carries. It is possible that neither back will excel, which will result in yet another unwanted time share. Still, there is no see sizable hurdle that will keep Jones from obtaining a desirable workload if he can demonstrate a reasonable level of effectiveness.
