I think it depends what you're looking for & luck.

1) Thomas Jones - seems to be the only one who can play himself into a lineup without having to wait for an injury.
2) L.Jordan - he'll get some carries cause the Jets are high on high for the future, but you're basically just rooting for a C.Martin injury
3) L.Toefield - perhaps the best actual RB from this situation, and Fred Taylor is the most likely starter in the league to get injured. But the Jags just picked up Fuamatu-Maa-la-la-ma. Does that cut into Toefield's carries if he gets the chance.

So ...
1) If you're actually looking for a guy to play now and these were the last three RBs left in your league: Jones, Jordan, LT
2) If you're stashing a guy on a deep bench, you're looking for pure upside: LT, Jordan, Jones
3) If you're stashing a guy on a deep bench, and Fu seems to be in Jax's mix a little bit: Jordon, LT, Jones.

Did I raise more questions than I answered?
... in my opinion, of course - but that should always go without saying.

yeah, it's a bunch of questions. i think i'm more tuned into upside. it occurred to me that t-jones is not ever going to be the sole back in tampa. that's just not good for fantasy. toefield might, and jordan might. toefield is the number two, despite the mflamfalmfalfalfa guy's presence and he backs up fred "fragile" taylor. jordan is already getting playing time behind a less-fragile c-mart.

close between those two, i think.

It's all about upside. I've never seen Toefield actually play so I'm just another sheep buying the hype there - Jordan looked terrific when he played last year. That being said - I have Toefield on my roster and not Jordan, so there you go.
... in my opinion, of course - but that should always go without saying.
