In Topic: Who is your late round upside RB?

In DEEP leagues (like the TFC 20-man rosters), I'm going to take a 1-2 week ride with Kyle Juszczyk.

Well written post....however last year was last year, pass blocking has improved already. Jones will start at one point .


Thanks. Where's the proof on the pass-blocking improvement? I don't deny Jones will probably start at one point or another, but I'm getting the sense it will be due to injury.



When Jones returns he will be the rb1.

If you own J Williams I’ll be praying for early success, his value would go up and then trade him.



Why speak in absolutes? If Jones was such a slam-dunk to start upon his return, wouldn't he be going around the same time Mark Ingram is?


Just out of curiosity, what happens if Williams goes for 100 total yards and a touchdown this week in a game GB is favored to win and Chicago has two key defensive guys (Roquan Smith and Mack) still learning the system? Still think the job is just going to get handed over? Jones' truthers better hope JW falls flat on his face in each of the first two games, because if Williams does well in either one, he's probably going to get a heavy workload against WAS-BUF-DET-SF leading up to the bye.

Also Jones will be the starter there by mid season and was clearly the best guy last season.


Let's completely disregard the fact McCarthy has thrown his confidence behind Williams for a second.


Is Jones a more talented and more gifted runner? Yes. I don't think many people would disagree with that.


Clearly the best guy? Let's see:


Jones was featured in three games and averaged 16.1 FPPG in those games. Rodgers played in two of the three games.


Williams was featured in eight and averaged 15.7 and Rodgers only played in one of those games. Williams actually had the two biggest fantasy games by a GB back last season.


Since the end of last season, Jones has gotten in trouble with the law, hurt and suspended. It's also debatable whether or not he is even an average receiver and he's doesn't block well. He's not earning a lot of trust, in other words.


Do I acknowledge there is a chance Jones passes Williams on the depth chart at some point this season? Sure I do. He's a gifted and explosive runner. That's why doing the trade for Fitz is smart.


My humble opinion: when Jones has proven he is the more complete running back, he'll become the man.

Aaron jones is the most talented running back on that team. I watched every Green Bay snap last year. He's a threat to take it to the house any time . He'll be starting in 3-4 weeks.


I agree with the first part. Unfortunately, he has shown little durability, doesn't catch the ball particularly well yet and isn't trusted to do the one thing more important than anything in Green Bay: protect Rodgers.
