Fantasy Football Advice: Chiefs RB Thomas Jones

Kansas City Chiefs RB Thomas Jones

Rushing: 52 carries, 217 yards, 1 TD

Receiving: 2 receptions, 6 yards, 0 TD

Through three weeks: Jones is going to be a good fantasy football play for a while, I think. The Chiefs haven't shown any signs of giving Jamaal Charles more carries than Jones to this point. Jones has been getting about 17 carries per game and he's putting up about 70 yards per game. He'll get the goal line carries, as well, meaning his fantasy football stock should be pretty solid from here on out. Despite the cries from the fans, don't look for Jones' carries to be reduced for some time. The Chiefs have reminded us on a few occasions that 16 games is a long time, perhaps a hint that Charles' role will increase in the second half of the season.

Advice: If you have Jones, keep him on the team. It doesn't appear the Chiefs will be thinking about giving Charles more carries until the middle of the season, at least.
