Felix Jones or Steven Jackson? WHIR

Postby sweettortilla » Thu Sep 29, 2011 10:04 am

I'm in 12-team ESPN PPR league.

I'm stumped. I have SJax. His injury scares me. Will I be able to count on him as the stud that I hoped & dreamed he would be?

I have an offer of Felix Jones for SJax. Felix and his separated shoulder scare me as well.

So I'm putting it out there to you, my wise, kind, fantasy friends. What should I do??

My roster:

12-team, PPR, ESPN league

STARTERS
QB Matt Ryan QB
RB Ray Rice RB
RB Steven Jackson RB
RB/WR Reggie Wayne WR
WR Steve Johnson WR
WR Santana Moss WR
TE Aaron Hernandez TE
D/ST Packers
K Kasay K
BENCH
SLOT PLAYER, TEAM POS
Bench Devery Henderson WR
Bench Reggie Bush RB
Bench Cadillac Williams RB
Bench Hasselback QB
Bench Fred Davis TE
Bench Bernard Scott, Cin RB
Bench David Nelson WR

Don't trade SJax for Felix. SJax was probably drafted way ahead of Felix four weeks ago and I dont think much has changed to alter that. Both are injured, but I think SJax is getting over his, while Felix's will linger longer.

After 3 weeks it really doesn’t matter where anyone was drafted on draft day. It’s now based on production and health. I have Felix in my league and I do think he is going to be fine. He played against Pit and played well before tweaking his shoulder again and was a full participant in practice on Wed. He has a bye week next week which can only help his shoulder. Sjax has a soft tissue injury which he has had trouble with before. I would try and get Felix if you could. He is on a better offense and he is willing to play through the pain of his injury and play well.

Any help with mine would be appreciated.

At this point Felix is the better option. His 100 yrd game against the Skins proves it. S Jackson injury will lag him throughout the year, plus the Rams are just plain bad this year. Felix is on a better team.

Only thing S Jack has going for him is a way softer 2nd half schedule.

Sjax is back at practice today... I keep Sjax..In fact I just pulled off this exact trade but the other way and I couldnt be happier. I traded Felix and got SJAX. Felix is gonna be in a time share, he has never shown that he can carry the load and Dallas has a 3 back rotation going at the moment. Yes Felix will see the majority of touches of the 3 but its still a time share..

KEEP SJAX!

Per Roto:

Steven Jackson (quad) was limited in Rams practice Wednesday, but took more reps than he has in the last two weeks.He's "getting close to full speed," confirmed coach Steve Spagnuolo. S-Jax played in Week 3, though his touches were curtailed after St. Louis fell behind 21-0 in the first quarter. He's set up for a much bigger Week 4 workload

Keep SJAX. Has looked very good when he has run. Should be coming off this injury. Law of averages says he should be able to stay healthy the rest of the year since he has his annual injury behind him!

im sticking with Jax... Jones has a separated shoulder, and if anyone thinks he is playing the rest of the season without missing time is crazy...hes one big hit away from being out.

Don't listen to those telling you to go with Felix. SJax will still be a stud, that offense has nothing but him. He'll be a workhorse a a 100 yd/game back, just like you expected.

Help me out?
