Tonight we analyze a player who once had the Dallas Cowboys RB spot on lockdown for not only now, but the future for many years to come. After getting injured last season and watching DeMarco Murray tear apart a weak Rams Defense. He was a backup all of last season, and likely this season as well.
FELIX JONES – RB – DAL
Felix Jones was a disappointment this training camp. First their were soft rumors going around that he could be cut. Then he dropped passes on 3rd down in Preseason games. Everything seemed to be going wrong, that he needed to go right.
After getting only 3 carries in the last 3 games, Felix Jones finally got the break he needed to be fantasy relevant. After scampering for a 22 Yard TD in the 1st quarter, things were looking good. Murray was still healthy, but then the next quarter Murray had to pull himself off.
Felix Jones ended up taking over the game with 18 Carries for 92 Yards and the TD he had earlier in the game. Jones also added 1 catch for 13 Yards put him over 100 Total Yards in the game, and a likely Waiver Wire Add in EVERY Fantasy Football League this time around. The extent of the injury to DeMarco Murray will not be known until tomorrow, but a sprained foot is never a good thing.
PREDICTION: BEAST. He will be a BEAST in the same way that Andre Brown was. If the starter is out, in this case Murray, Felix Jones will be a Must-Start option in all Fantasy Leagues next week. Next week the Cowboys play the Panthers, and although the Panthers could be improving their run D over the Bye week. The Pathers are pretty awful for the most part defending the run. Just ask Andre Brown who started against them in that Big Thursday Night game with over 100 Total Yards and 2 TDs. Felix will be Must-Start next week if Murray cannot play, and likely a RB #2 if Murray has to miss any games moving forward. Add Felix “The Cat” Jones, before somebody else does.
