    Why would the Jets let a fairly-productive Thomas Jones go and then sign LT? Tomlinson has mentioned publicly that he’s OK with being a third-down specialist…something the Jets already have with Leon Washington! Am I missing something here? Thomas Jones could have split carries with a potentially fragile Shonn Greene, while Leon Washington handled third down duties. If they get LT now, they get an aging running back who will split carries with Leon Washington on third down? Please explain.

    P.S. Hello, Patriots? Instead of just watching a bunch of your guys leave in free agency, how about you make some moves to help a team with some serious holes at this point?!

    If your league doesn’t use a waiver system, you should be picking up Jets running back Shonn Greene this morning. It looks like Leon Washington will be out the rest of the year with a broken fibula and Greene will now be splitting carries with Thomas Jones. Given the opportunity this weekend against the Raiders, all he did was rush 19 times for 144 yards and two touchdowns…

      In a league where I have Leon Washington as a bench player, Beanie Wells is also available. Who should I try to go for? Him or Greene? (not a dynasty/keeper league and non-PPR)

        I think Greene is the way to go. Wells is competing not only with Hightower but also a pass-first offense. Jones and Greene are going to be relied on more and more to take the burden off of Sanchez’s sometimes iffy shoulders. With Jones at 31 you also have to consider the possibility that Greene might slip into the starting role with a late season injury.

        I’d def go with Greene as well. To add to what 12stepdrop said. the Jets O-line is going to help Greene out as well.

        My RB situation has been horrendous this year. Washington has been my RB1 or 2 all season, thats how bad it’s been. And I saw it get even worse when he went down in the game (best of luck to him btw, i hope its not career ending, that guy deserves to be able to continue what should be a great career and eventually get the paycheck he deserves) I picked up Greene 5 minutes later based on what I saw of him against the saints and figuring my running game can’t get any worse even if he does nothing. unfortuantely I can’t use the 26 points he put up this week, but with the way he played he has the potential to match or surpass TJ fantasy productivity level.

        Nothing is guarnteed, and it was ony the raiders. But still he did more with his carries then Jones did. If he can keep that up, he may not even need an injury to TJ to replace his as the number 1 guy.

        I may have just saved my RB situation by losing my “star” back this season hah

        If the choice is between Beanie Wells and Greene, your options are about even but I like Wells better. Word has it that he’s now the primary ball carrier in Arizona and will see the majority of the touches. Greene did all fine and well last night but don’t expect the Jets to do that well on the ground again anytime soon. As previously stated, Washington was a fantasy backup and so shall Greene be.

        Another reason to grab Wells is his fantasy playoff schedule which is pretty much the most favorable out of any RBs.

        That being said, it’s a good time to grab both of these guys for championship games as both of them will likely be starting that game with Greene almost guaranteed to do so since the Jets should clinch a WC birth before the final couple weeks.

          I disagree slightly here. Wells “may” have won a starting role. Hightower was pulled after the fumble, but Wells has had his problems with ball control as well and fumbled as well. Lucky for him it went out of bounds.

          Considering that, he may lose favor again with another fumble and you could see high tower replace him again. He’s seen more action then greene but has done less with it. And as 12step stated, he’s in a pass first offense. Meanwhile, with Washington out and Greene’s performance on sunday he’s gotta be guaranteed to split even with TJ

          Arizona does have a number of favorable rush games, coming sooner then the jets. But the Jets also have NE, Car, Buff in weeks 11- 13 right before fantasy playoff time. Those teams rank 22, 23, and 32 against the rush. Buffalo was the jets first 300 yard rushing game, and TJ, who Greene is closer to in style had 200 yards in that game. So the jets do have opportunities to reproduce sundays game before the playoffs hit.

          Beanie Wells might make more sense in the next 2-3 weeks, but I think Greene is the better fantasy option overall. And despite Mia and Jac as their two opponents in the next two weeks, if Greene’s performance level remains consistence, he could still post a decent 12-18 pt game in either of those two games. Well’s best post is 15 points in my league, and all other games have been 2.x. I’m going with Greene here.

        Hey Shirley, I’d go with Shonn Greene for sure. The Jets are a run-first team and Greene is their second option. The Cardinals are a pass-first team and Tim Hightower will still see a lot of the goal-line carries and third downs, since he’s a solid pass catching running back.

        Thank you everyone for your comments. I did have Greene higher on my list but someone higher up than me on the waiver order got him. Ended up getting Beanie Wells in two leagues though.

    Hits & Misses – Week 2: Vikings ready to pillage 

    Now that week one is in the record books, we’re starting to get a better idea of how the teams will look this season. It’s obvious that Adrian Peterson is the best running back in the league and he’s being rewarded for his spectacular play in week one with a Detroit Lions defense that was complete owned by the Saints last week. While you would think that that would earn him a spot on the Hit list this week, I had to leave him off for reasons mentioned in my week one post. However, that does not prevent me from including his quarterback, who starts off this edition of the Hits & Misses… (More …)

      Should I pick up and start Correll Buckhalter or start Cadillac Williams?

      • Brandon 11:52 am on September 18, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I guess it depends on who you need to drop to get Buckhalter. Don’t drop Cadillac for him though! You’re probably safe just starting Cadillac this week if you don’t want to shake up your roster too much.

    • e-roc 11:03 am on September 18, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      @brandon – with TJ suffering from the injury bug, do I start Laverneus Coles or Steve Smith (NYG)?

      @John – I vote for Buckhalter w/his matchup vs. the hapless Brownies.

      • Brandon 11:54 am on September 18, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Hey e-roc, if Housh plays, then I think you still want to go with him this week. It seems that Coles hasn’t been fully integrated into the Bengals offense yet and any Giants receiver is always a wild card (although Smith looked good in week one.) If Housh doesn’t play, go with Smith.

          Thanks Brandon. Sounds like he’s going to still play, but who knows for how long (or how well!).

      I guess Mark Schlereth was right…I’ll be darned!

    Our running back cheat sheet has been updated to factor in the latest news on Edgerrin James, James Davis, T.J. Duckett, Glen Coffee and Leon Washington. Make sure to check it out before you draft!

    The rumors circulating that Thomas Jones might be dealt were at least a little plausible given the fact that his backup Leon Washington is likely to make a lot more than him this season, but the Newark Star-Ledger seems ready to put them to rest.
