Anyone else Considering a Julius Jones Start

Recommended Posts

I picked the guy up last week, just for the fun of it. I had an open slot so I took the chance.

 

Now it's beginning to look like one of my starters, Jamal Lewis is going to be out this week. I have Chester Taylor, but he's facing the Pats Defense.

 

So Julius Jones is starting to look like a starter against the Bears.

 

I'm in a standard Performance league, and my other RB is Pittman, another wavier wire pickup, after I lost S. Davis and Deshaun Foster.

 

Anybody else thinking about it????

I'm am also considering it, especially after what Edge did to the Bears last week plus

it's a Thanksgiving Day game. The Boys always play well that day.

Yes, in the same situation as a frustrated Jamal Lewis owner. If Jamal can't go I get to pick up Chester but not sure I'd even start him vs. the NE defense. Julius may have a better chance of getting you 100yds than Chester IMO, so I'd say what do you have to lose. I could see Chester getting 60-70 yds and maybe 20 receiving, and Jones could get you 90-100 and maybe a score.

I wouldnt say the boys always play well on turkey day.. remember last years ass whipping by the Dolphins?

 

Anyway.. I too picked up Jones 2 weeks ago and stashed him on my bench. I have considered starting him because I like to see my backs get close to 30 carries a game.

 

I have to pick 3 Rbs from this list.

 

S. Alexander (no brainer), McGahee, Pittman, J. Jones, Chris Brown, Antowain Smith.

 

Right now I am thinking Alexander, McGahee and Pittman, but I like Jones against Chicago without Urlacher and I also would hate to see Brown go off on Houston or Smith for that matter.. any thoughts here?

 

If I were you, I would go with Jones.

I've got JJones in two of my leagues and am seriously considering starting him in one of them. My regular backfield is Ahman Green and Chris Brown so you can see where Jones may be a necessary play for me this week.
