I wish I would have grabbed Barber as my #3 back now. This time-share is not much of a share. Barber is getting all of the good stuff: the catches, the GL carries, and he is also outperforming JJ.

JJ is unstartable until Barber is out.

i didnt plan on getting him but got him really late. he is boarderline dropable right now esp with his injury. hes an alright bye week fillin and can maybe get 6points or so but his value really only lies with barber owners

Barber is a guy I was officially wrong about coming into the season. I figured with his ADP and the inherent flukiness of TDs that his chances of duplicating last year's numbers weren't that good and didn't justify the pick.

At this point it would certainly appear that I was mistaken. !+)

As to JJ, other than a bye-week fill-in he's not gonna do much for a fantasy squad right now (and maybe not even that if he ends up on the shelf as the result of multiple concussions), and the way things are looking this will be his last year in Dallas.

I try to draft players from playoff teams. They are usually the teams who consistently score the points. This method got me both Barber and Jones this year. You can guess which one I've been playing. MB3 has been an animal even with Jones taking some of the carries. Jones is a handcuff, nothing more.

Plus, Jones has had two concussions in three weeks. If he has another, his Dr. may recommend he sit out for a while. That would make Barber the lone RB for high scoring Dallas.
