    Thoughts on Jones this season? I picked him up in a bench spot but I'm wondering if he'll even get the ball behind Charles..
    Spiller is still available along w R Bush, Forsette etc

    I had the same conundrum, I went with Spiller because 2 of their starters reportedly went down in the preseason. I think he will split carries with Lynch and will probably take his roster spot.

    If I were you, I'd go with R. Bush...I think he's got a chip on his shoulder this coming season and he'll take it out on the field.

    I'd take Bush and Spiller over Jones. I think the Chiefs have a great RB duo. Unfortunately, I don't think it will be excuted well and Jones will see few carries.

    I dumped Jones for Spiller.. I love that my 12 team league drafted and nobody selected Rothlessberger..

    If Big Ben is still available in a few weeks, I'd try to pick him up... Check when your starting QB's bye week is... as long as it's week 7 or later, you'll be fine.

    Even then, I think it's worth it once he comes back.

    I will likely do the same thing with Sidney Rice a few weeks into the regular season.

    The "fantasy expert" (who knows no more than I do), Matthew Berry (I think that's his name), discussed Big Ben's fantasy worth a couple hours ago. Meril Hoge was with him and asked "So it's looking like he will be more of a third or fourth round pick." I lol'd. Yes, Meril. A guy who's suspended for 4-6 games is worthy of a 3rd-4th round pick. :rolleyes:

    Berry said he expects him to be drafted in the 9th round. The only way I'll draft him is in the last two rounds. Other than that, there's no use.

    Apparently, Jones is No. 1 on the Depth Chart now ...

    Charles is coming off surgery and Jones has a knack for always surprising, I'd take him over Bush. However, Spiller has ROtY Potential.
