Bucs not planning to trade RB Jones

Fantasy owners hoping that Tampa Bay running back RONALD JONES will be traded to a better situation prior to the upcoming trade deadline will likely be disappointed to hear from BucsMore head coach Bruce Arians on the matter. Arians said on Wednesday that he would rather have depth at running back than anything the Bucs might get in a trade.

Tampa Bay head coach Bruce Arians said on Thursday that veteran running back GIOVANI BERNARD has been “more than pretty good”, adding that the Bucs newest backfield addition is already aMore major part of the offense. If Arians is to be believed, fantasy owners will have to sort through the Bucs running back corps with fellow rushers RONALD JONES, LEONARD FOURNETTE, and KE’SHAWN VAUGHN also in the mix. Less

Versatile RB Bernard to have role in Tampa Bay backfield

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers expect to use versatile veteran running back GIOVANI BERNARD in multiple ways heading into the upcoming season. Super Bowl championship aside, Bucs running backs led the leagueMore with 17 drops last season. Meanwhile, Bernard begins the season with the third most receptions among running backs since 2013.

Around the NFL: Tampa Bay running backs

There was a story over the weekend that Bruce Arians plans to have Leonard Fournette and Ronald Jones split time. The Bucs also have Giovani Bernard, and maybe still have hopes for last year's 3rd-rounder Keshawn Vaughn. Is there value to be squeezed out of this backfield?   more »


Around the NFL: Tampa running backs

The Bucs just won a Super Bowl, but it was primarily due to their defense and their top-5 passing game. Investing in their bottom-5 running game a year ago didn't really pay off, and it probably won't in 2021, either. If anything things might be worse.   more »

Factoid: Tampa running backs

Ronald Jones sat out last week's Tampa Bay game at Washington, much to the dismay of those who started him (he was held out after aggravating a quad injury in pregame warmups). Jones has now started off this week with a missed practice, so he's iffy for the game at New Orleans.   more »

Brady helped his fantasy owners with 2 touchdowns andMore 381 passing yards against the Washington Football Team.
