I am hating this too. I've had him benched in several leagues, thinking that his performances were the exception rather than the rule. Giving into temptation, I started him in said leagues this week, even benching Edge in favor of Jones, as Jones had Edge beaten solidly in points, up until now.

Of course Edge gets his TD and yards, and Jones does nothing noteworthy.

One bad game in 4 weeks and and now everybody is going to start talking about him sucking. He was the best fantasy rb the first 3 weeks. It's only 1 game, he'll be fine in a couple of weeks.

For the record, I said nothing about him sucking. I was just disappointed in his scoring for me this week. I'll still be starting him, just never, ever benching the likes of Edge for him. Hindsight is always 20/20 and all that...

Ahem ...

I will not begrudge anybody disappointment in his showing Sunday. Two points, however ... 1) Philly defense; 2) Jonathan Quinn's first start in four seasons.

Jones' value slips a bit with not-so-mighty Quinn or Hutch under center, but he won't be facing the Iggles every week. Hang on unless you can truly sell high (probably unlikely after this week).

T. Jones got hurt by losing Rex Grossmen for the season. He'll be fine though, he'll have atleast 100 total yards each week and maybe a td.

Guys get off to hot starts all the time, then fizzle. Guys get off to slow starts, then pick it up. It's a little too early to say he's done, BUT you need to keep a close eye on things. If you think he's going to run like he did games 1-3, then you're probably drunk right now. If you think he won't rush for another 100 yard game you're also drunk. So the truth is probably somewhere in the middle.
