Just Rushing. You can comment on hold many receiving yards he had as well, but the poll is just for rushing.

I get last year was a low rushing year but the year just before dolphins Ajayi and a NE Blount was around that level. Bum add Martin got 1400 two years ago and this is a better RB and better OL.

I don't think Jones will lead the team in rushing but I don't think anyone on this team rushes for 1200 yards.

A) I think the carries will still be split too much
B) He's a rookie with...
C) A line that I still don't think will be great in run blocking. Jenson was worse than Marpet in run blocking last year in Baltimore. Sweezy is still a question mark, Dotson is coming off an injury, and we'll see about Marpet's next position change. It's too early to say, but I do think they will struggle as a unit at first and I hope they can gel.

Jones is going to be a combined yardage guy. He's more likely to get 1500 total yardage than 1200 rushing and I wouldn't be quick to bet on that either. After all, Kamara only got a little over 1600 total yards with a much more efficient QB throwing it.

That's still a huge leap. He wasn't a receiver in college out of the backfield. We don't know if it was due to inability or scheme, but it seems most are hoping it was just scheme. I think he'll have 600-700 rushing yards and 200-300 receiving yards...maybe 5 total TDs. I think that's realistic considering our offense, our line, him being a rookie, and what we know/don't know about him from college.

edit: McCaffrey only had 1,086 total yards (651 receiving) and I think he was more refined as a receiver than Jones.

No issues with any of that. I believe Jones can beat McCaffrey's yardage due to being a better pure runner. It wouldn't surprise me to see Jones run for 800 and catch for 400.

I see something like 650ish rushing, 300ish receiving.

He has the talent to do a lot but in the end his production will come down to other factors. How well we block, whether Barber produces and steals carries, whether Jameis can hit him accurately to let him run after the catch.

Kind of a stupid poll, no offense. The problem is, a question like that sort of implies "is he capable of running for 1200" or "is the team and he capable of a 1200 yard rusher". The answer to the first of those two is very likely yes, and the second is more of a "very probably". But the literal answer to the question depends on coach's decision. This is a coaching staff that sat Barber behind Martin after all.

So, I'd say, he's talented enough to rush for that, the rest of the offensive players are talented enough that he could rush for that, but it's doubtful he'll actually get the opportunities to rush for that.

Tbh, I think Barber will be getting most of the carries, at least early on, and will probably be the one leading in rushing. I can see something like a 110/435/3 statline with Rojo taking over the running game more in 2019.

I wouldn't put more than token money on that. We seem to like Barber much more than Koetter does. They sat his azz behind Dougie "2.9 YPC" Martin. He is still not exactly solid in pass pro either. Jones, despite his small frame (which worries me), has shown he can do work running between the tackles, and it won't take much to become as "good" as Barber in pass pro. I think he gets more snaps than Barber, but comes out for Sims on third almost every time.

One thing that could increase opportunities for all of our RBs to get carries is the defense getting stops for once.

Pretty sure we haven't got off the field on third down without giving up a score since 2009.

If he did this, I'd find it more impressive that all his rushing totals were divisible by 5 than anything else.

I really don't see it. Not only is he going to be working with Barber, our passing offence needs to feed Evans, DJax, Brate, and Howard...

i"m hoping we have a pick your poison offence, but I don't expect individual huge years from anyone.

I can't see it.

Even if he averages a very good 4.5 YPC, he'd have to average 17 carries a game over a full 16 game slate to reach 1,200 rushing yards. I think all three of those numbers (4.5 YPC, 17 carries per game, and all 16 games) are a bit rich. I still expect Peyton Barber to get a solid bit of work, and I still expect us to be up there, league-wide, in PAs.
