Weekly M. BarberIII v. J Jones

Recommended Posts

Tough. I'm a Saints fan to start. I have to start one of thee guys. SJAX is my #1 and I have been looking at Julius Jones as a bust all year. I'm looking at putting Barber in as RB#2 this week, round 1 of the playoffs. Thoughts?

Agreed....Saints have better Pass d than they do run d.......Unfortunately, im facing barber this week, and have feeling he gets tds....minimum....I got Romo going for me........and feel that he could get goose egg with TDs as the run 'em in this week...Hope im wrong

I got burned starting JJ over Barber twice earlier this year...JJ hasn't seen the starting lineup since. Since about week 7 I think. He is the most overrated starting RB in the league. I tried trading him away before the deadline and unfortunately everyone else in my league feels the same way about him. Nobody wanted him. Not even for a tier 3 WR. I tried getting Furrey off a guy for him and his response was something along the lines of "dude, you're kidding right?"

Barber is the choice here. In TD dominant leagues he is in the top 5 of RB's however most leagues he is still in the top 12. Barber is a must start.

 

As for chinatown's comments regarding the Saints pass defense vs. their paltry run defense football wise he is right but fantasy wise the Saints have given up 21 TD's through the air this year. Romo will be just fine.

 

If you are a bettor the move here is to load up on the over. This is going to be one high scoring game.
