Obviously this guy put up next to nothing the first few weeks. Given his 2nd half performance last year, I'm inclined to wait for the inevitable improvement, but is the Lions offense too much of a mess this year? What do people think, try and trade him now? Or hope for a turnaround?
i gave lamont jordan and keyshawn (who i never planned on using, i picked him up off WW) for KJ and anquan boldin. i have good depth at rb (LT2 and Rudi starters), so I can let KJ sit on the bench til week 10 (LT2 and Rudi's bye), when he will hopefully have broken out by then. if you can get him at a low price, like i did, do it.
KJ has had one average game and one bad game and people think it's the end of the world? He's only played 2 freaking times people! And his fullback is still injured. Usually I wait for 3 consecutive bad games before I give up on a player, so if Kevin Jones stinks it up this week, and stinks it up next week, then maybe it's time to move on (redraft only).
As it stands, KJ is a guy I want on my roster at the end of the year. Right now he's probably got the lowest trade value you will see all year (maybe after a poor Tampa game it will be lower, but that bad performance is not guaranteed). I would say that KJ has the #2 best fantasy playoff schedule for a RB behind Shaun Alexander.
Kevin Jones is in buy low territory right now. If the owner in your league has already given up on him, swoop in like a vulture.
