View RB Fantasy Rankings »
What You Need to Know:
  • Jones played behind Leonard Fournette in Tampa Bay last year, finishing with 428 yards and 4 TDs on 101 carries. He saw just 13 targets, catching 10 for 64 scoreless yards.
  • Jones ranked 60th among RBs in PPR points and 56th in non-PPR.
  • Jones finished RB25 and RB19 in PPR points the previous 2 seasons as the Bucs’ lead back. (RB27 and RB15 in non-PPR.)
  • His ranks in Pro Football Focus’ rushing grades over the last 3 years:
    • 2019 - 25th among 45 qualifiers
    • 2020 - 6th among 48
    • 2021 - 37th among 50
  • His ranks in Pro Football Focus’ receiving grades:
    • 2019 - 41st out of 59
    • 2020 - 63rd out of 63
    • 2021 - 69th out of 89
  • Jones signed a 1-year deal with the Chiefs on the 2nd week of free agency. It’s a $1.5 million deal with only half of that guaranteed.
  • The Chiefs did not re-sign RBs Darrel Williams or Jerick McKinnon, who combined for 156 carries and 77 targets last season.
  • RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire returns for his 3rd season. The 2020 1st-rounder has missed 10 games and been mostly underwhelming over the past 2 years.
  • Jones beat Edwards-Helaire in PFF rushing grade each of the last 2 seasons, but CEH fared better in Elusive Rating.
  • Edwards-Helaire beat Jones in PFF receiving grade and yards per route run both years.
  • Kansas City lost WR Tyreek Hill, who averaged 9.2 targets per game over the last 2 seasons.
  • The Chiefs added WRs JuJu Smith-Schuster, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and rookie Skyy Moore. They return TE Travis Kelce and WR Mecole Hardman.
  • The 2021 Chiefs ranked 3rd in Pro Football Focus’ run-blocking grades and 8th in Football Outsiders’ Adjusted Line Yards. They return all 5 starters for 2022.
  • Charles Goldman of Chiefs Wire gave a projection this week for the 53-man roster and left RB Ronald Jones out. "Shocked to not see Ronald Jones' name here? [Jerick] McKinnon's return endangers him more than some are willing to admit," Goldman writes.
Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Jones’ landing spot in Kansas City is intriguing. Even without WR Tyreek Hill, it’ll be a strong offense with a strong offensive line. Jones’ competition for snaps, Clyde Edwards-Helaire, has disappointed through 2 NFL seasons.

But Jones didn’t exactly light it up during his 4-year tenure with the Bucs. The fact that he got just a 1-year, $1.5 million deal from the Chiefs in free agency is confirmation that teams weren’t falling over themselves to add him.

Edwards-Helaire, who the Chiefs spent a 1st-round pick on just a couple years ago, should head to camp as the favorite for the lead job. We’ll see if Jones can push him.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire, RB KC

12:59pm EST 11/23/22

Edwards-Helaire to IR

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire has been placed on IR with his high-ankle sprain. He'll miss at least the next 4 weeks and can be dropped from redraft rosters. We'll see if CEH's absence gets RB Ronald Jones on Kansas City's active roster on game days, but this now figures to be a 2-man backfield with Isiah Pacheco and Jerick McKinnon.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid commented on the progress of RB Ronald Jones. The former Buc managed to make the 53-man roster following cutdowns on Tuesday. “I thought RoJo did a nice job down the stretch, and we know what he's capable of. It's a matter of him being comfortable in the offense,” Reid said. [We] throw a lot at the running backs, and it looked like he was starting to get it down the stretch there. Good football player.” Jones’ Week 1 role remains a mystery, but he’s at least trending in the right direction.

Dynasty Write-up
Jones' rocky 4 years in Tampa certainly didn't point to big things for his 2nd contract. So landing in a K.C. backfield filled with Clyde Edwards-Helaire questions looks pretty good. We're still not expecting much from Jones long-term, though. So this year could present you with "sell" windows at various points.
