If you're looking for any clarity on Bucs' RB situation and Bruce Arians saying Ronald Jones would start vs. Falcons on Sunday, he said on his weekly radio show of his top three running backs: "They're all starters." Doesn't mean any one is on the field for the opening snap.

Giovanni sends his Bernards.


raawtid

This would totally be my team name if it could fit


Badgeringlion

Same. I would hold Bernard on my bench all season just to claim the name.


Galaxy__

Thats what im doing. I also write it to my opponents after i beat them


slobs_burgers

Does “Gio Sends His Bernards” fit? Or more concisely, does “Nards” fit? …In your mouth? 😏


drcorndog

Warmest Bernards works


thaconman

Man, this comment took my mind right to the Giovanni the St. Bernard post. What a glorious yet unfortunate day that was. https://www.reddit.com/r/fantasyfootball/comments/jumw9i/this_morning_i_saved_giovanni_the_saint_bernard/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf

Legendary post


dizZzy5

brb dropping my entire roster so that my team is comprised entirely of Bucs and Niners RBs


hellothere842

You forgot Ravens RBs too


fishrunhike

At least one of them is eligible for QB points


Background-Energy964

I don’t understand this joke. Lamar is not even built like an RB.


fishrunhike

It's stupid to be honest.


ZapatosDeMarca

Don't forget the clusterfuck in the Ravens backfield!


HotLightningSox

Are you me?


hellothere842

Everyone is a starter


Expendable_Red_Shirt

Even me? 🤩🤩🤩


Great_Smells

Especially you


Minneapolis_W

/u/Expendable_Red_Shirt ROS?


Wonderful_Warthog310

Hell yeah /u/Expendable_Red_Shirt SZN, cheers from Iraq


NBAHoopsBasketball

Bucs-Ravens-49ers RBs = Spider-Man meme


Nav44

Avoiding all of these backfields this year for me, I can't be dealing with this


[deleted]

My decision to stay away from all bucs RBs during the draft was a wise one 💪


hellothere842

Pulled RoJo for a buck in an auction. No other bids so now I'm stuck with him.


ZachGamezzzz

I mean, that's not bad at all. Unless you're playing in a super shallow 6 man league or something. Having rojo on your bench could come in handy throughout the season.


hellothere842

Yeah, I just hate having a guy that I don't think is worth dropping but at this point would always be a risky start unless something happens to Fournette.


billygoatygruffy

I wouldn’t say Lenny getting hurt is a long shot or anything. He’s better than most fliers depending on an injury given the offense.


je3f3f3

RoJo will probably have a 4-5 game stretch where he's a solid RB2, the season is long , keep this dude on your bench.


snowydavee

I spent 4, that was 3 too many


pentax10

I'd feel pretty good about that. it's only been one week, could still end up being a huge steal.


liteshadow4

Never put someone up you wouldn't be okay with for $1


hellothere842

Well I was ok with it for a dollar, but would have rather had someone else.


CheesecakePower

I mean both RoJo and Fournette were pretty cheap. There are definitely worse dart throws to make at the point that they were available


GreatLookingGuy

Yeah the best RBs left at that point were… David Johnson, tevin Coleman, etc


dudenotcool

Got Rojo way late. So it's just a lottery ticket for me


kingXcazam

I just got ROJO off of the waiver wire after no one picked him up. Who knows he might be worth a stash. I dropped Latavius Murray to get him.


GlockzInABox

Definitely worth the pickup


PinkPearl2

Between this and the Niners situation I’m done drafting running backs… they just cause pain.


The_Denver_Broncos

Not going to leave the 3rd round without two rbs next year. If they get hurt oh well. Better than being on these RBBC wild rides


OhUTuchMyTalala

Lol this is the way. Always has been.


BatEmergency3879

I ended up Cook/Carson/DMont in first 3 so it’ll maybe work out


The_Denver_Broncos

Dang that sounds great. I’ve got Elliott and Rojo. It was a headache week 1. On a Thursday no less so I had to look at it for awhile too.


CouldntcuttheMostert

I've got 2 Jones', Aaron and Ronald, who combined to get me 1.6 points. Somehow escaped with a W though.


Farcanaussie-

I went hard in the first five rounds ended up with Aaron Jones, Ekeler, CEH & Josh Jacobs. (Kyler Murray was my 4th round pick). Didn't draft a WR till round 7 lol.


BatEmergency3879

jacobs in round 5 is absurdity


Jeremisio

If everyone is a starter then nobody is.


Dr_Mann

Bruce Arians: “and now I flip my magic card, Polymerization!”


Asado_is_yum

I just need one good Rojo game to sell him


ECUDC

Good luck finding a buyer


mattman0000

Trade him to the guy who has Fournette. By the time he figures out you’ll be whistlin’ Dixie.


Kindly_Focus3101

I mean if I was an NFL coach, I would hate us too


Hmm_would_bang

nah I'd embrace that shit. Biggest fan base


Juzaba

I believe it is possible to both embrace FFB and hate it. Step one is clarifying who is your starting RB multiple times each week, but each answer mentioning different people, saying contradictory things, and occasionally making hopeful comments that don’t make any logical sense.


Kronkster

Am I complete taco for still holding Gio in 12 team ppr


highastronaut

no. it was week 1 and he was injured.


hellothere842

He looked slick when he was out there and Tom likes to run the hurry up so he will definitely have value in full ppr.


JEH-C

They may all be "starters" for Arians, but the better all be backups for your fantasy team. I drafted Rojo as a bye week fill in with huge upside if Fournette goes down.


Devz0r

Never trust a Tom Brady running back* *except Blount, that one time


0percentdnf

>Doesn't mean any one is on the field for the opening snap. No, that's literally what a starter is. You running a 3-RB set on the opening snap, Bruce? Great non-answer.


domdadomdom86

I drafted RoJo because I had mistakenly thought that Mostart had already been drafted. So at least I didn’t draft Mostart


hendric_swills

Drafted both 🤘


gatorrrays

With these comments from Bruce and the Bucs playing the Falcons at home this week, I’m doing it. I’m rolling with RoJo. Rolling him from Bench 3 to Bench 2 with full confidence.


The_Denver_Broncos

Please get me off Bruce’s wild ride


ZapatosDeMarca

My only worthy bench RB is Rojo. Intuition says Saquon won't do much, but I'm terrified of Rojo in my starting lineup.


Primetime0509

Clears everything up


Juzaba

They promised clarity, and boy howdee somebody delivered!


Miikey722

Rojo is still the best option here. If fournette goes down, Rojo is an instant RB1. If Rojo goes down, we can’t say the same about Fournette. Keep your spirits high about Rojo - he will finish as a top 15 back this year, mark my words.


ZapatosDeMarca

You have Rojo, don't you lol


order65

Yes, Top 15 in the Buccaneers internal RB ranking. And yes of course I own him.


Miikey722

He finished top 15 last year. Fournette is old now and extremely fragile. Rojo is a lottery ticket that will cash in big.


Asado_is_yum

He is 26....how is that old?


ZapatosDeMarca

They're literally only two years apart in age, and one only drafted a year after the other.


B_Fee

He came into the league looking like a divorced 38-years-old uncle that drives a late-90s Chevy Tahoe, so everyone just assumes he's been in the league forever.


Miikey722

26 is when RBs decline


Asado_is_yum

I could see the argument for 28, but not 26


borfmantality

Horseshit, mark my words.


thefranchise305

Fire up all three with confidence boys


pokeraf

Lol, fire up Gio!


jizzmonkey69

Bucs about to run the triple option with 1000-yard career rusher Tommy Brady under center.


DanceCommander-

When everyone is a starter, no one is a starter.


Wonderful-Trust-802

Why couldn’t have god blessed me and had Lenny sign with a new team this year as their 1A. I’ll never get rid of him in my dynasty league.


en455

He was dropped in my league. I’ll be grabbing tomorrow.


CredibleSloth

The real starters are the friends we made along the way :)


ryan_dfs

Had to pick up RoJo because I needed a Mostert replacement. Would only consider him in bye week hell or if that backfield starts thinning out due to injury. If he could actually get 15 carries and some red zone looks he'd be somewhat usable.


FLIPNUTZz

Yeah what a confusing and frustrating situation about through running backs that are all pretty meh in the 1st place
