Ronald Jones II: RB1?

Published by Cory Hays on

On Sunday, the Buccaneers used all three of their RBs in certain situations. The second half of the game was pretty much all Ronald Jones II. Jones II was running the ball down the throat of the 49ers Defense and wasn’t shying away from contact. He looked a lot different than he was used last season and had runs for 11 yards, 11 yards again, 9 yards, 7 yards, 9 yards, 16 yards and 5 yards. These runs made up the majority of the Buccaneers run offense in the second half.

Jones II just looks so much more confident in his ability in his 2nd season. The dual threat ability and the explosiveness may give Jones II the edge throughout the season in the starting RB battle with Peyton Barber. Barber wasn’t bad on Sunday with 8 carries for 33 yards but Jones II took over which could be a sign of things to come.
