Thomas Jones=Steal of the Draft.....

Postby Shotgun StU » Wed Oct 19, 2005 12:19 pm

I just wanted to put up a post saying what a great pick TJ has been this year. I picked him up in round 8 of a 16 round draft because I remembered his fast start last year and needed a good start for week three when two of my backs were on bye. All this guy has done is outscore my top two backs and produced on a bum knee.
This guy has beat out my other picks DD and KJ for productivity..what do you guys think his chances are against the Ravens I think under 100 but a chance for a TD because the Bears get a turnover from Ravens to create a short field like in the Lion Game.
Anyone give TJ a shot to keep the job all year if healthy..I do.

I think you're exactly right - he won't go over 100 yards, but he may get a TD from a short field.

Good pick. I'd trade his numbers for Jamal's so far, and I wasted one of my two Keeper positions on him.

Draft?? I got him of the WW after week 2. He saved me last week when Dillon was out.

They have ZERO confidence in Benson, as evidenced by leaving an injured TJ in there late in a blowout of the Vikes. (Thanks for the garbage TD, late, BTW)

Benson couldn't block ME right now, and unless he gets his **** together, he won't see many touches, much less the starting job.

I'm at least certain I can depend on TJ until my Caddy and Dillon get healthy. Bell on the roster, too! ;-D

Be wary, people were proclaiming Willie Parker the steal of the draft after 3 weeks. Things can change.

He was a waiver pickup for me as well after week 1. I wasnt suprised when nobody drafted him either, Benson went in the 4th round I think. I tried to trade the Benson owner T. Jones for Bulger a few weeks ago, glad he declined!!!

Grabbed him in rd 16 amid a chorus of laughter from the other Chicagoans. Better than my 2nd and 3rd backs.
