Bucs RB coach Tim Spencer put rookie Ronald Jones' pass-catching skills on blast. "In college, there was probably a reason why he was only thrown the ball 17 times," Spencer said. Jones caught just 14 balls in his final season at USC and 32 total in 3 years at school. Spencer went on to say that Jones has worked on "his hands, his eyes" but that "he's never going to be the best catching guy on the team." It's pretty rare to hear a coach talk so negatively about a player's ability -- but it seems warranted here. Jones has reportedly struggled catching the ball in training camp and has dropped both his targets in preseason action. Jones won't be a factor in the passing game this season and remains behind RB Peyton Barber for early-down work.
Bucs RB Ronald Jones will play against the Panthers this weekend, HC Dirk Koetter said Friday. The rookie has been either injured or a healthy scratch in 4 straight games. He’s unlikely to see more than a handful of touches on Sunday and isn’t a fantasy option. Peyton Barber remains a fine RB3 or flex.

Bucs RB Ronald Jones (hamstring) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday. That gives him a chance to play against the Giants this weekend after missing the last 3 games. Jones isn't a fantasy option but would put a dent in RB Peyton Barber's value.
Bucs RB Ronald Jones (hamstring) remains out for this weekend’s game against the Redskins. Peyton Barber will continue to dominate touches in Tampa’s backfield but is an unexciting RB3 in fantasy lineups.
Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones suffered a hamstring strain in Sunday's loss to the Bengals and is expected to miss "a few weeks," NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. That only helps the touch count for Peyton Barber going forward. Barber already returned to 19 carries against Cincinnati and posted his 2nd strong fantasy performance among the past 3 weeks. Unfortunately for Barber, matchups with Carolina and Washington don't shape up well for RB scoring over the next 2 weeks.
