Shark Bites

Bucs RB Ronald Jones injured a pinky in Sunday's win over the Vikings. HC Bruce Arians said Monday that it might be fractured. It sounds like Jones is still undergoing tests, so we'll look for an update on the injury and whether it'll cost him time. We're guessing Jones' absence would put RB Leonard Fournette in the lead role -- although it's less clear after Fournette was a healthy scratch yesterday.

Bucs HC Bruce Arians says RB Ronald Jones' "play isn't as good as it should be." After losing a fumble in the opener, Jones blew a blitz pick up and got QB Tom Brady sacked in Week 2. "He’s got to get out of those types of situations," Arians added. "I thought he ran hard and protected the ball, but again, you can’t have those mental errors. … It’s just attention to detail, like missing that blitz." Jones has just 10 carries and 3 targets through 2 weeks and is impossible to trust in fantasy lineups. Don't be surprised if RB Leonard Fournette's role continues to grow.

Bucs RB Ronald Jones will start Sunday's game against the Falcons, HC Bruce Arians said Tuesday. It feels like an olive branch after Jones was benched for his 2nd-quarter fumble in the opener. "Starting," of course, just means that Jones will be on the field for the 1st play of the game. It doesn't tell us anything about how big a role he'll play. This still figures to be a 3-man committee, with Jones and Leonard Fournette playing on early downs and Gio Bernard in passing situations.

Bucs RB Ronald Jones (quad, finger) is active for tonight's game against the Saints. HC Bruce Arians said earlier this week that RB Leonard Fournette would get the start regardless of Jones' status, making Fournette the better fantasy bet.

Bucs RB Ronald Jones (quad, finger) has "a good shot to play" vs. the Saints today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Jones participated in Saturday's walkthrough, although a final decision on his availability won't come until he gets to the stadium today. We'll find out whether Jones is active around 5 pm ET. HC Bruce Arians said earlier this week that RB Leonard Fournette will get the start regardless of Jones' status.

Bucs HC Bruce Arians labeled RB Ronald Jones (quad, finger) a game-time decision for Sunday's Divisional Round tilt vs the Saints. Arians added that RB Leonard Fournette will get the start regardless of Jones' status. That obviously doesn't guarantee that Fournette will end up leading the backfield in touches, but he's coming off a nice performance in last week's win and is the healthier of the 2 backs. Fournette looks like the better fantasy play this weekend.
