The Tampa Bay Buccaneers might have a crowded backfield in the 2021 season, and what to expect from Ronald Jones is a bit in question. He was the top rusher for the team during the regular season in 2020 before Leonard Fournette took control of the lead role in the postseason in the run to the Super Bowl. It will be interesting to see how the workload will be distributed between the running backs this season.

Here, we’ll take a look at the prop bets on the table for Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones on DraftKings Sportsbook ahead of the 2021 NFL season and make our picks.

770.5 rushing yards: Over (+100) or Under (-130)

Our pick: Under

It is difficult to be confident enough to go after the over rushing total for Jones, and that’s why the under is getting -130 odds. In addition to Fournette returning on a one-year deal, the Buccaneers also brought in Giovani Bernard this offseason. It’s fair to assume all three will see plenty of time on the field, so expecting any of them to reach 770 rushing yards is a stretch.

7 rushing TDs: Over (+100) or Under (-130)

Our pick: Under

Jones scored seven touchdowns in the regular season in 2020, and we’re still going with the under. Bernard doesn’t figure to be much of a factor in short-yardage situations, but Fournette and Jones should both find the end zone a decent amount. Jones had nearly 100 more carries than Fournette in the regular season last year, but Fournette’s workload should increase after his postseason performance in 2020. There are too many questions to assume Jones reaches seven rushing scores.
