No. 2 RB...who would you choose?

Recommended Posts

Strange keeper league....standard scoring....I just found out I'm drafting 12th in a 12 team league.

 

My keeper is Ronnie Brown. Predicting the drafting habits of the teams before me, I figure I'll be looking at the following possibilities as a #2 RB (unless someone does something stupid, of course):

 

Julius Jones - possible RBBC, possible health issues...although, could be a breakout year

 

Kevin Jones - had him in another league last year...spent the year cursing him....he scares me

 

Tatum Bell - not even listed as the #1 on the Denver depth chart

 

Jamal Lewis - fantasy gold or fantasy fold...who can tell?

 

Warrick Dunn - puts up the yardage...not the scores

 

I should mention there is a bonus for 100+ yds rushing so this raises a player like Dunn's stock

 

What do you guys think?

between KJ and Bell. I honestly think KJ had a case of sophomore slumps and can come around this year putting up #'s like rookie yr. As for Bell, pay attention to preseason reports and how things are shaking out between him and Dayne. If he somehow comes out to be clear starter then take him over KJ.

No Brainer. Julius Jones. He is going into his 3rd year as the clear cut #1 RB. On top of that, he has the BEST FF Playoff schedule out of EVERY RB/Team. Should be a no brainer!

Everyone is afraid of JJ having to share carries with Barber, but the only (significant) time that this happened last year was when Jones was injured. Julius Jones has the most talent of the RB's that you've listed. He is a health risk, but his upside is great (especially with the addition of Owens to the offense).

I like Julius Jones for the schedule and when he's healthy he doesn't share the ball

um, that is incorrect...Big Tuna talked about wanting to get Marion Barber in the mix MORE this year because he has been so solid...he MIGHT end up being the guy to own in Dallas when its all said and done...

 

I go KJ

JJ is the guy BUT efiing tuna is gonna split carries you know it so I would go with KJ- but I am not that high on him either- can't compare him to Faulk- and Martz can be death to the running game.

 

naw- I would go upside and take JJ
