No, it is possible. If Mendenhall is better(opinion of ND3) but Jones gets more playing time howdo you vote. Or if Jones is better(my opinion ) but Mendenhall gets more action, how do you vote?

Easy Gabe I was using Mendenhall as an example...

Don't waste your time trying to reason.

I havent heard of either of these guys............I need to brush up on my FB knowledge before my fantasy drafts.....I do know Mario Manningham could turn out to be one of the biggest steals in the NFL draft.....

I did hear about Mendenhall............I believe he went to Illinois but he was drafted number 23 and he wasnt drafted by the Giants....lol

As for Felix Jones that teams running game will be handled by Marion Barber III.

Not 100%. It will be split like it was last year with Barber and Jones. Same concept

I really think Felix Jones has all the attributes to be a good back. Barber has been used as a pounding 3rd down back most of the time (until injuries put him in as full-time).

So my guess is Jones, the next few weeks in both Steelers and Cowboys camp will be interesting.

Now if you're talking Fantasy Numbers Mendenhall may get those 1 yrd TD runs Bettis used to get and prove to be a better value because Barber will take half the TDs away from Jones...MAYBE

I vote for Felix. I hope Mendenhall is out of the league by next year so we don't have to see his awful "RM" autos for the rest of his career, lol.

VERY WRONG...

He was the better back between Julius Jones & MBIII and was NOT the POUNDING 3RD DOWN BACK you are imagining. The only game he started last year was in the playoffs when he ran for about 150 yards in the loss to the Giants in which Eli threw for about 100 yards following the screen pass that went for 60 yards on their first drive.

Other than that, he was by far the better of the two. Julius Jones just happened to "start" all the games on the first play.

Your facts are way off of reality...

INJURIES never had anything to do with his playing time...EVER!!!

Mario Manningham...biggest steal of the draft !!!???

Hes Barry Bonds in a football uniform plus he might be about as bright as a box of rocks !!!

I vote for Jones. He'll be starting by the middle of the season.

I don't know about starting by mid season with Barber in place. But he will see significant time in different packages. Especially with Garett as the Ocoordinator.
