Ronald Jones II - Calling TB Homers

Recommended Posts

Jones only played 20/63 snaps in week 4 against the incredible stout Bears defense; however, he out touched Barber 11 to 8.  Barber has been impressively ineffective this year despite receiving his decent volume.  

 

Does anyone think Jones leads the way this week against Atlanta?

 

Do any Bucs homers have any insight?

I assumed you watched the game or at minimum understand what happened in that game... it was a complete blowout so yeah they gave the rookie some "extended looks".  As a Jones owner in dynasty leagues, I am hopeful it means more than what it appears to.

i think it's questionable to hold Jones in Dynasty (wait for any action and sell), but I think it's a wasted roster space in redraft. Read more at...

WOW!! Such sound judgment after 5 games in the NFL. Whew...thanks for sharing that insightful FF knowledge with us Lord Dopie. 

 

Don't listen to this doofus. Anyone who suggests you give up on a rookie in a Dynasty league (that's what taxi squads are for numbnuts) after 5 NFL games is an idiot.

well, if you remember from that other thread, I said Jones wasn't that good months ago.

He wasn't worth (to me) a 1st round rookie pick in drafts six months ago, so my opinion, even if I'm wrong, has always been this. So my opinion isn't about "Such sound judgment after 5 games in the NFL". I've always thought this.

To those new to this discussion, go read the thread i posted.

Taz is just upset with me because I'm right and he is wrong, again.

 

Granted, I don't get paid millions of dollars like the TB front office/GM does, so they absolutely know more than me, but then again, I would never move up in the NFL 2nd round to draft a PK :lol:

Barber blows, that is all

yeah, i was wrong about how well he was going to do. I'm disappointed.

TB should trade for someone like Lynch, probably could get him for a 6th... if he agrees.

yes, but while I've been a "supporter" of him, he needs some consistency before i'm confident; howver, I think that will happen with Winston back. I suspect that there was something off with him and Fitzmagic

Apparently Barber doesn't blow as much as I thought, or the Falcons D blows even more. 

 

Why would Jones replace Barber? I didn't see the game, but he got one carry to Barber's 13.   He had 10 carries for 29 yards the prior game, even if he had more touches than Barber he didn't do much.

I drafted Sony Michell very early in a couple of dynasty leagues, and had the opportunity to take him (or Ridley) in another at the 1.05 pick.  I'm usually not one to worry about putting all of my eggs in one basket, so to speak, but for whatever reason (and against my better judgment), I passed on Sony for Jones in that league. 

 

Everything I've read about Jones lately gives me the indication that he's simply immature.  Both as a person, and as a running back.  Maybe he'll figure both of those things out, sooner or later.  If not, I'll probably regret making that pick for quite a while.

They are playing the hot hand but neither hand is really "hot".  Barber has a edge IMO but who knows.
