I've heard his re-hab is on schedule. He was fantastic last year, and i doubt Tatum will handle the whole load. Can this guy comeback sometime during the season? Can he return to form?...-could be a real steal come draft day. :D

I took Jones in one of my drafts but it was the 9.07 pick and by then - what the heck? He's nothing more than RB depth for a fantasy team and not even that great of a bye week filler until more is known about his health statis in camp. He was very good last year because of his receiving stats and that could happen again - if he gets healthy AND he stays healthy.

I was really high on him going into last draft and he did nothing to disappoint me up until his freak injury...

Now I have to restrict him in my dynasty auction...

Welp. That solves my question of whether or not to keep him in my 8 player keeper league. :D

 

However, in terms of your drafting Jones at 9.07 (and I can keep 8 players w/ each player taking up a draft pick) and being in a 10 team versus 12 team league can make a pretty big difference. How many teams were in your draft?

Swiss took him in the 5th round in an ongoing IDP mock, but that's way too early for me. I like Tatum Bell better this year, but wouldn't take either very early.

It was a a 12 team league. I was surprised to see him there regardless of his past history.

While I was skeptical about his healthy return, there's been nothing but positives coming out of Lionland. Martz loves KJ. If he's healthy, he'll get the ball.

If I can get him as a RB3, I'll take him. I won't need him until bye weeks for my starters, and from what I've heard he should be close to full-health at the start of the season. He was putting up great numbers last year, and I can't really see Bell or Duckett taking too many carries away.

Sometimes a player just falls because of unknowns. He's a high risk, high reward player, and that scares a lot of drafters. Right now, I might take the chance somewhere around the 7th round in redrafts.

I would take a late round flyer on KJ, that's it....which is to say, I won't be drafting him this year.

swiss has massive manlove for KJ but I was still shocked at how early he took him

That is all that comes out of Lionland until the season starts. :D

 

Hey Furley, I would never say never. What if he fell to the 9th round. Would you pass on him then?

I made the final decision to drop him today, and I actually feel pretty good about it too. At times he was a solid fantasy player for me, last year, but even then he was inconsistent.

If I had him on my team, I wouldn't want him to be any more than my fourth best RB to start the season.

He doesn't scare me at all. His rehab is going great, and based on his level of health right now, there's no reason to believe he won't be ready Week 1. Plus, he's my 3rd RB. I don't have to rely on him, really.

 

I'm fine getting him as my 3rd RB in all my leagues. Maybe I'll just wait longer than the 5th... :D
