Week 5 Free Agent Focus

Ronald Jones, RB, Buccaneers

Blind-bid recommendation: 40-50%

Jones controlled the Tampa Bay backfield more today than he has at any other point, beating Peyton Barber in snaps for the 1st time in his career, according to ESPN Stats.

Jones handled 65.5% of the RB carries, taking 19 attempts for 70 yards and a TD. That marked just 3.7 yards per rush, but it crushed Barber’s 9-19-1 line (2.1 per carry). Each back saw just 1 target, with Jones catching his for 12 yards. (Barber had no receptions.)

Jones still trails Barber by a few carries for the season but has beaten him in that category in 3 of 4 games. Jones also leads Barber in yards per rush, 4.7 to 3.4. Can we finally count on Jones here? We’ll see. But he shouldn’t still be available in 59% of ESPN leagues.

Up next: a solid matchup with the Saints. Football Outsiders rated them 4th worst in run defense entering Week 4.
