Is Kevin Jones a waste of time

Postby hj8386 » Sun Sep 26, 2004 1:25 am

Im in a bind i have 2 solid running backs in holmes and d. davis, and two solid wr in S. Moss and Chad Johnson. Can Jones be the 5th leg?

Under normal circumstances, sure he's the "5th wheel." He won't be staring unless Priest or D. Davis is hurt...Holmes probably won't play this week, so I'd be thinking long and hard about using Jones on Sunday.

Kev Jones will get better as the season wears on. The emergance of Roy Williams will provide a deep threat that will help open up the run game. I think Jones will have a solid game today and end being a solid #3 RB. Play him today.

I agree with the Mooch. Jones is still learning the game, but has gotten better a little at a time. That's all you can hope for from a starting rookie.....game to game improvement. I think you'll start seeing why Detroit moved up to get him by Game 4 or 5.

I like kevin jones a lot, just seeing him play I like his build and stnad - up running style. This year I don't see great stats, top 10 RB withing the next 2 years IMO.

well I started him today and getting that 0 in the RB slot, could potentially make me 0-3 :~(

My options were either him or Gordon since both Henry and Dillon had bye weeks.

Yeah even as a flex player he's been garbage thusfar. The fact that I took my flex player in the 4th round and he's getting outscored week to week by people who took their flex player in the 10th round isn't sitting well with me.
