Yea, I agree. There were some situations where run seemed most logical, but you've gotta give JJ a break. You can't expect a rookie RB to take 30+ carries a game, just coming off an injury. The last thing you want is a burnt out running back at the age of 26, ala Ricky Williams.

And 88 and a TD ain't bad. Not quite what most were expecting, though very respectable #'s. Nothing to complain about, except for the fact the Cowboys lost to the lowly Saints :-[

In a non-coincidence, Julius Jones and Corey Dillon were named Matchup and Start of the Week at CBS Sportsline. Obviously that means they were due for at least a minor setback.

Ironically enough, I was starting both of them in one of my leagues today. You never can complain with 170 yards and 2 TD's. Whine all you want, but I'm satisfied with that performance 9 out of 10 times

I started jones today and wish i started mcgahee but im satisfied with jones performance. starting LT and jones was supposed to be the winning ticket. just supports the fact that fantasy football is unpredictable. I'll likely lose this weekend but can't complain about jones.

Even against the worst defenses you can't expect like 200 yards and 2 or 3 TDs. 88 and a score is great from your 2nd back every time. I think we just rationalized that if he did so well against defenses that were at least a little better than NO then he should "explode" against them.

Maybe Parcells doesn't want to beat him into the ground but I'm fine with that. Gimme 5 great fantasy years out of a guy over 10 good real football years. :-D

jj had less rest than usual this week as well, with dallas playing on monday last week. being that he is a rook with just a few games under his belt i have to think that was a bit of a factor as well. still not upset with his #'s, though i would like to see him work on catching the ball out of the backfield a bit for next year.
