I think McGahee is a better back overall and I think he'll do pretty well in Baltimore but I could see them both putting up pretty similar numbers. Both the Jets and the Ravens are teams that like to run the ball....I wouldn't mind having either of them on my teams this year.
I really think that Jones could get a much bigger workload than he previously had in Chicago. Two years ago, Jones was the top fantasy RB with his increased role in chicago. Then he dropped off when he was injured and Benson got some work. I really don't think Leon Washington is gonna be much more than a spell guy or maybe someone they use to split out in two back sets. Jones could put up 1st round numbers like he did in 2005 when he was 9th overall for RBs even with a weaker 2nd half.
However, a common misperception is that TJ puts up the receiving yards. It's true in 04 he was big with over 400, but I think that was a product of the QB rotation revolving door. If any back on the Jets is catching passes I'd have to think it's Neon Leon.
