T. Jones, Benson or Jacobs

Postby Sp_Da_Man » Thu Aug 09, 2007 12:01 pm

During my research so far for the up coming season it seems like these three guys are always drafted pretty close to eachother (late 2nd-early 3rd). They should all make great #2 RB's.

How would you rank these guys? All have questions about them & all have a chance to have real, solid seasons.

Jones
Benson
Jacobs

If it's PPR:

Jones


Benson
Jacobs

Most people would probably rank Jacobs higher than Benson though.

I've got them ranked
TJ
Benson
Jacobs

I really dont trust the giants offensive situation. Benson should finally get the chance to show what he can do. I watched a number of bears games last season and he was running really hard. He looked impressive. In that offense hes got no excuses if he cant put up a good season this year.
Also TJ is a better pass catcher than the other two but don't forget about Leon Washington. I wouldn't expect TJs recieving numbers to be all that great this season. I see the jets using Washington as much as they can. In obvious passing downs i'd expect Washington to give TJ a breather. Hes a playmaker for sure.

I agree with biju....
Jones
Benson
Jacobs - I think BJ is a Beast but I don't see NYG doing much offensively this year. IMHO
Good luck!

I have Benson slightly above TJones, but Jacobs below both. Jacobs is a great #3 RB, but I'd hate to rely on him as #2. Benson or TJones would be a fine #2 RB if I got a top flight WR as well.

I wouldn't make too much a difference between Jones and Benson, and I'd prefer either to Jacobs.

1) Jones
2) Benson
3) Jacobs

I really don't like the Giants offense at all this year, I think they will be trailing alot aswell, so I can see Eli throwing a ton and then they abort the running game.
A win next week and all is forgotten.

Until I see the Giants are going to go with Jacobs more than half the time between the 20's I don't want him as a 2nd back. TJ is above Benson because he's the better back. Both are in similar situations, good o-lines with somewhat sketchy passing games.

That is my main worry with Jacobs and why I am putting TJ and Benson ahead of him.

I think TJ and Benson are a wash. They are both in very similar situations. Both are the main back on their team but have a 3rd down back that will come in on passing downs. Both should get the goal line carries. All in all it is about who plays the easiest schedule and is likely to be up big at the half. I think the Bears have just as easy of a schedule as last year so if I had to give a slight edge it would be to Benson.
