When will Kevin Jones put it all together?

Postby Warpigs » Thu Sep 23, 2004 9:43 pm

He's apt to put it all together really soon. Should he be started as a second RB option? He's been slow out of the gate, but how long until he's turning in Chris Brown-like numbers?

I don't expect him to be putting up any Brown-like numbers, but I think he will improve as the season starts to move on. The players will settle in, and Jones will start producing.

It is only natural to expect some bumps in the road with a rookie. With all of the injuries and other people making news he might actually be a good buy low candidate right now.

Like Chef said Jones will get better as the year rolls on, by the end of the year he'll be an ok 2nd RB and a great player to put in the flex spot IMO.

I'm looking for him to have a nice 2nd half of the year. He's been impressive with what I've seen, just not getting quite the right situation yet.

All we can ask for is improvement, and he's shown that from Game 1 to Game 2. KJ should adapt to the pro game shortly. I like his outlook.

He's got Philly on sunday, so I'm keeping him tethered to the bench. But next week my two horses (DD and Alexander) have the day off, so I'm starting him with Barlow then. I'll be very interested to see how the kid does. I think he starts tearing teams up by around week 6 or 7.

solid plan. I would be very suprised if he does anything against PHI, but stranger things have happened I guess.

Week 6 and 7 DET goes up against GB and NYG - 2 teams that are avg at best against the run. Weeks 8,9,10 could be brutal for him, but starting week 11, DET has some very favorable matchups that could propell Jones into stud status in time for the playoffs.
