Is Julius Jones Officially Useless?

Postby Doughhead » Mon Sep 24, 2007 8:57 am

Marion Barber just keeps making this guy look real bad. I'm in a league with a Flex spot, and barring an MBIII injury, I can't envision any scenario in which I would start JJ. Is it time to accept that JJ will not be of any use to fantasy teams this year?

I feel your pain and agree with your assessment of J. Jones, but I still wouldn't drop him. He has some value as a bye-week fill in.

JJ was just starting get some good yardage when he left with an injury. I'm not so sure if MBIII would have had as good a day last night if JJ didn't leave.
The cake is a lie.

JJ is worthless, he will probably get 3 tds this yr if he's extremely lucky, and 100 total yds maybe two times...Barber is the man, he put up 100 yds rushing with only 15 carries vs the Bears, and he actually knows how to break a tackle or make a guy miss, jones cant

and if JJ ever got hurt, we will be looking at larry johnson filling in for holmes pt 2, Barber would easily be Joseph Addai like in that offense if Jones wasnt in the picture, as of now, Barber looks a lock to be a top 10 back...so much for ADP, i took Barber in the 2nd because I knew better, and I expected everything im seeing thus far

The one good thing is that they are giving them the same amount of carries and JJ is not being pulled for MB III if its his series

I have both of them but JJ is a handcuff for Barber. Barber gets the TDs and bulk of the points. JJ is only worth starting if [God forbid] Barber gets hurt. As mentioned above, if JJ gets hurt, Barber's value goes through the roof.
Go Bears!

honestly the only reason you should have him is as a handcuff to barber. fantasy-wise he should not be in a lineup except maybe as a bye week fill in...i finally dropped him today.
