Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports Ronald Jones is a game-time decision for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers matchup against the New Orleans Saints.
Jones is recovering from surgery performed on his pinkie finger and a quad injury. He reportedly was a participant in the team’s Saturday walkthrough, which would indicate he is trending toward playing.
Jones is listed at $6,300 on FanDuel. He last played in the Buccaneers’ Week 17 44-27 win against the Atlanta Falcons, rushing 12 times for 78 yards and one touchdown.
If Jones is unable to play, look for Leonard Fournette to assume the lead running back role. Fournette is also priced at $6,300 on FanDuel.
As the lead back for the Buccaneers, Jones has started in 13 games, rushing for 978 yards and seven touchdowns. He will face a Saints defense who have allowed the league-lowest 13.38 points to opposing running backs this season.
The Buccaneers are a 3-point road underdog against the Saints on FanDuel Sportsbook, in a game with a 52 total.
