I realize that jax isn't doing poorly, but I just haven't seen any rams games and wanted to know if he looked good or not..... if you don't like the thread just don't click on it.......but I really do appreciate those of you willing to help. Thank you


While I don't disagree with any single thing you said, there are certainly better thread titles when you're looking for legitimate information than the one you gave, which comes off as purely venting to casual readers.

Also, there is tons of other useful information on this already in the several other threads asking the same question.

That's the point, he is producing top numbers. Without a single TD yet, he's still top 1 in just about any format (except TD heavy leagues).

What people need to keep in mind this early in the season is that TDs are not reliable for any RB, and this early in the year they heavily skew the rankings. I remember Portis having a drought early last year, but winning many people's playoffs. The key hear is that 100+ yards is perfectly exceptable from a #1 RB. If anyone is counting on more than 10 points from their RB each week, then you did not build a team around that 1st round pick.

Consider that he's on pace for 2051 total yards, and that if he keeps that pace and never scores a TD thats enough fantasy points that he would've been a top 10 RB last year, the year before, and 13th based on the 2003 stats. (I'm using the most standard scoring format to gauge this). That tells me he is living up to 1st round potential. Even 6-8 TDs with that yardage total would throw him into the running for top 5.

He's doing better than Tiki Barber whom it seems like everyone here except for me had ranked above Jackson. So life could be worse. Look on the bright side, Linehan seems to be living up to his promise of feeding Jackson the ball. I had him ranked #4 on the hope that he would see something like 68 carries in the first three games. If I were to be given a choice between him getting 68 carries and no TD's in the first three games or 42 carries and 3 TD's, I'd choose the 68 carries. It is a better indicator of the things to come than the lack of TD's. Look at Rudi Johnson's splits from last year before you start freaking out about TD's early in the season. Touches are more important than TD's at this point.
