I was thinking the mike martz-type system of passing would open things up for the run, but nothing has clicked yet. I'm keeping him as my backup, but i wouldn't trust him as my starting 2nd yet.


Are you in a PPR league? If so (like I am) he looks pretty dang good.. 5+ receptions and 40+ yards on average per game and thats just receiving.. In my league he is the # 12 ranked RB points wise.. Not too bad

I would much rather have Kevin Jones than Ronnie Brown or Carnell Williams right now. I guess that means I'm sitting shotgun in the bandwagon?

could get an increased work load Sunday in St. Louis as the Lions attempt to get their running game on track

Says who? every coach says that they want to get their running game going whether they will or not is yet to be seen but he is nowhere near a top 5 or number 1 running back like some of you are saying

I have said this before . . . but it should surprise nobody that he had a slow start. His first two games were against SEA . . . who has given up a whopping total of 5 rushing TDs in their last 19 regular season games.

Next was CHI . . . who has given up 10 in that same regular season span.

Both are near the top of the league in rushing yards allowed. Between the two teams, they have allowed fewer than .5tds/regular season game played since the beginning of last year.

Look what happened when KJ played a softer team. . . week 3 vs. GB he gets 125 all-purpose yards and a score. Hmmm. Wonder why that happened.

Anyways, i am hoping that the KJ bandwagon isn't driving down a dirt road, as he is my RB2 . . . behind Alexander :~( So I need him to put up some good numbers for me. I don't think I am being unrealistic in thinking it has a good shot of happening.

KJ was the RB4 on one of my teams, but I just traded Chester for Caddy and Terry Glenn, so he's the #3 for now. (Hopin' Caddy can turn it around, and I needed another WR).

I'm actually considering starting KJ over S-Jax this week. The Rams D has been pretty kind to RBs this season, while the way to hurt the Lions is through the air.

If Martz gets KJ his touches (and there's been lip service from Motown that they want to get Jones "more involved") then he should post good numbers. But it's the Lions, so who knows?

I know I lie a lot and say I watched players play pee-wee football, but I truly did see Kevin Jones play HS Football.

This adds nothing to the topic.
