Thomas Jones

Week 1 Start/Sit Advice – Cassel or McCoy, Colston or Marshall?

Posted by in NFL Week 1 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 6th, 2011 | 3 Comments

Question:

QB – Now that Peyton Manning is out, would you start Matt Cassel vs. BUF or Colt McCoy vs. CIN?  Matt Cassel has already said he will play despite rib injury.

WR: I have Marques Colston @ GB and Mike Wallace @ BA. Should I replace either one with Brandon Marshall vs. NE?

RB: Thomas Jones vs. BUF or Ryan Mathews vs. MIN

Answer

QB- I would go with Cold McCoy vs. Cincinnati just because Cinccinnati has a terrile defense and the threat of Peyton Hillis will not help.

WR- I would go with Marquest Colston vs. GB just because GB dosent have a great secondary.

RB- Ryan Matthews vs. Minny just because he is there bona fide starter while at KC Thomas Jones is 2nd string for Jamaal Charles.…

Week 7 – RB – Matthews, Jones, Jacobs, or Ivory?

Posted by in NFL Week 7 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on October 23rd, 2010 | Comment »

Question: Who should I start or sit in week 7?

RB:
Ryan Matthews vs. Patriots – Start
Thomas Jones vs. Jaguars – Start
Brandon Jacobs vs. Cowboys – Sit
Chris Ivory vs. Browns – Sit

My instincts tell me to start Ryan Matthews and Thomas Jones. Ryan Matthews is going to be at home against a team that is ranked 20th against the run. If Chargers can put up some early scores, they will run the ball a lot more in the second half. Ryan Matthews has been averaging 5-6 yards per carry the last two weeks despite his low scores. Thomas Jones is up against the Jaguars at home, who have played poorly against the run, enough said.

WR:
Larry Fitzgerald vs. Seahawks – Start
Deon Branch vs. Chargers – Start
Kenny Britt vs. Eagles – Start
Lance Moore vs. Browns
Jabar Gaffney vs. Raiders
Davone Bess vs. Steelers

TE :
Vernon Davis vs. Panthers
Benjamin Watson vs. Saints
Tony Moeaki vs. Jaguars

Answer:

I would play Thomas Jones and Chris Ivory. Ivory actually plays against the Browns tomorrow and Jones plays the Jaguars. Those are two of the easiest match ups you will ever get. Keep your WRs as is. Vernon Davis at TE obviously. That’s not even a question.

Week 5: Matt Schaub or Ben Roethlisberger?

Posted by in NFL Week 5 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on October 23rd, 2010 | 4 Comments

Question: Week 5 start sit questions?

I have have a bit of a dilemma here and can’t decide on who to start this week.

QB – Ben Roethlisberger or Matt Schaub – This one is a toss up

RB – Ahman Green or Thomas Jones – I’m leaning towards Green

WR – Wes Welker, Andre Davis, Tory Holt, Dwayne Bowe, Lee Evans – Need to pick three

Answer

Ahman Green is still questionable for this week so that’s a tough one. I would play Matt Schaub because he’s going up against Miami’s defense and should put up big numbers. At wide receiver I would probably go with Wes Welker, Dwyane Boye and then Andre Davis in the third roster spot.

Week 5 – RB – Thomas Jones or Fred Jackson?

Posted by in NFL Week 5 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on October 9th, 2009 | 1 Comment

Question: Week 5 Start em or Sit em? Thomas Jones or Fred Jackson?

In week 5, should I start Fred Jackson vs. CLE, or Thomas Jones vs. MIA? Keep in mind that Miami has the 2nd best rush defense and Cleveland has the 31st worst rush defense. Both Jackson and Jones are splitting carries, so who should I start?

Answer:

Go with Fred Jackson. Lynch is back in the mix but Jackson should produce this week against the Brown’s awful rushing defense. Thomas Jones has a tough task this week on the road against Miami’s run defense. Additionally, RB Shonn Greene is now part of the backfield rotation, which could take away more carries for Jones.

What do you think? Answer below!

Week 3 – RB – Cedric Benson, Pierre Thomas, or Donald Brown?

Posted by in NFL Week 3 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 24th, 2009 | 4 Comments

Question: I need some start/sit advice for week 3.

Which 2 RBs should I start?

Cedric Benson vs. PIT — Tough matchup against a good run defense
Pierre Thomas @ BUF — Thomas has been injured all year
Donald Brown @ ARZ — Splitting carries with Joseph Addai
Thomas Jones vs. TEN — Up against another great run defense.

Answer:

Did you not take any RBs in the first 4 rounds of the draft? Tough break there. I would start Benson despite the tough matchup against Pittsburgh. He’s guaranteed to get the most touches out of your backs. Bench Thomas Jones. The last spot is a toss up between Pierre Thomas and Donald Brown. If Pierre Thomas is in the lineup on Sunday, I would start him so check the injury updates right before kickoff. If Pierre plays, you play him.
