3. Tony Jones Jr.

There was a lot of hype surrounding Tony Jones Jr. after the performance he put on this preseason but through two games, the Notre Dame running back hasn’t done much.

Now, it’s worth noting that the Saints have Alvin Kamara on their roster and he’s someone more than capable of putting the team on his back. Because of this, there won’t be as many opportunities for Jones to really ball out.

The Saints also were down by 17 at halftime in Week 2 so it’s not unusual that they didn’t want to involve their backup running back in the game plan.

With all of that said, however, I definitely expected to see more from Jones two weeks in. He’s only had 60 total yards through the first two games of the season and that’s not ideal, even for a backup running back.

Hopefully, we get to see more from Jones in the coming weeks but so far, it’s been disappointing how little he’s been used.
