RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Summertime hero, fall time zero. Jones racked up seven yards a carry during the preseason, but stumbled to a 3.4 YPC in the real games. Just as worrisome, he caught a case of fumblitis. Five of his 163 touches hit the turf. A hip injury cost him the final three games. Nonetheless, the Redskins believe in Jones, and essentially promoted him in the offseason. Alfred Morris is gone, and the only back the team selected in the draft was a fifth-round pick, Keith Marshall out of Georgia. Holdover Chris Thompson could lead this backfield in catches, but Jones has the best chance at being the bell cow, and a primary back in a Jay Gruden offense could be a lucrative thing. Give Jones an intensive scouting look during the summer. (And make sure Washington doesn't add a major free agent; if Arian Foster, say, were to come to DC, Jones' rank would need a major downward adjustment.)

2015

The Redskins added Jones in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft, adding depth in the backfield behind Alfred Morris. Standing at 6-foot-2, 231 pounds, the rookie back has the makeup of a power back, but with a bit of added height over most of the running backs heíll compete against. In his senior season at Florida, Jones totaled 817 yards on the ground with six rushing touchdowns, but didnít provide much as a receiver out of the backfield. While Alfred Morris sits entrenched as the starter, a strong training camp could earn Jones an opportunity as the backup.
