BEAST OR BUST
Power. Speed. More speed. More Power.
There is no doubting that Matt Jones has the tools to be a superstar RB in this league. There is one thing to doubt though, and that is Alfred Morris. While Matt Jones is a fierce RB and he would start for a few teams in the NFL, he is firmly behind Alfred Morris who is the Heart & Soul of the Redskins offense. Yes it was nice to see Matt Jones spell Alfred Morris after a dominant first series only to see Jones sprint down the sidelines for a long TD run, but it all came because Alfred Morris kept moving those chains.
While Matt Jones will continue to have some nice games here and there, he is essentially a RB #4 who you cannot trust in Fantasy leagues unless something happens to Alfred Morris. While you can add Matt Jones for depth, it takes a serious set of balls to start him in Fantasy Leagues as the Redskins offense will not be consistent and there will be times where Matt leaves you with 36 Yards Rushing in your starting lineup.
So while the hype of Matt Jones is real, the final result as far as consistency goes, is not. Do yourself a favor and let the Sheep overpay for Matt Jones in FABB leagues, or early Waiver Wire claims. This is a RB who is more Waiver Wire Friendly, than RB #2 status. He should be owned in all leagues, but he should never leave your bench as a RB#4 at best.
*Only way Matt Jones is a BEAST is if Alfred Morris goes down.
