For those about to dump Kevin Jones--

Recommended Posts

I received an offer of (me getting) Jones K for (him getting) Andre Johnson, both total losers so far this year. I'm still trying to figure out who's got the better upside. :D

 

I think I'll take this over to the FF Advice board.

You're nuts if you don't do this.

 

1--> In fantasy football, when trading comparable talents, RB > WR

 

2--> As bad as it is, the Lions offense > Texans offense, and will be much better once the fullback returns and Harrington is replaced

 

3--> Look at the late season schedules (Weeks 13-16):

Texans: at Bal, at Ten, Ari, Jax

Lions: Minn, at GB, Cin, at NO

I should have mentioned that my league awards a point per reception to WRs / TEs, but not to RBs. This acts as quite a leveller, so it's not as straightforward as it seems.

I just traded K jones for Tampa Bay defense.  I guess that might be considered 'dumping' him.  But for me, it makes sense.  THe biggest hole on my roster was defense, and I have Willie Parker and Carnell Williams at RB, with Chad Johnson, Joe Horn and Darrell Jackson at WR.  With Parker and Williams, I wasn't going to be starting Jones again anytime soon.  My starting lineup is stronger now, at the expense of a little depth.  Still, it's sad to trade my (late) first round RB for a defense that was picked in the 7th round just a few weeks ago.  My pick up of Parker though, gives me that luxury.

A starting RB for a Defense? Seriously? I mean, maybe I would understand if the other team through in Neil Rackers and Doug Jolley but straight up for a D???

 

...that I am not so sure about...

Starting rb's aren't a dime a dozen defenses are. Just find out what team is playing the Vikes or Texans and pick up that D from the ww.

Very misleading statistics for all the reasons mentioned above.

 

The main problem with Kevin Jones is the fact the Joey Harrington doesn't belong in the NFL.

Agreed, Jones is going to struggle until Harrington starts run blocking better.

In a my 12 team league, most weeks the defense playing the Vikings or Texans won't be available. And at $5 per pickup, it's not cheap either.

 

As for the rest of it, as stated, in my league, defense is a significant player. The differential between a good one and an average one is easily 5 or 6 points per game on average. I don't need another RB, WR, or TE. But I do need a defense. I have Cadillac, Willie Parker, Thomas Jones, Chad Johnson, Joe Horn, Darrell Jackson. Of this group, I need only start 1 RB and WR, with 2 flex. Didn't feel like waiting around for KJ to maybe come around so he could maybe put up numbers close to 2 of the RBs I already have, all the time losing 5-10 points a week from my crappy defenses. It's a 12 team league and even with trading KJ, I still have the deepest roster at RB/WR in my league.
