In my auction draft on Saturday I'm thinking about grabbing these two high risk RBs, please share your opinions on their prospects:
Julius Jones: Mostly based on KUBIAK (from the book), who not only gave him generous numbers but also only a "yellow" risk. However we can't count on Walter Jones being back this year, and, well, Julius hasn't been a very good back. Also I'm concerned Duckett might vulture some of his touchdowns... Kubiak's double digit prediction shocked me.
Larry Johnson: I always pay mind to playoff week matchups and the Chiefs have the fortune of facing Cleveland and Cincinnati in weeks 15 and 16. I'm hoping to get him for like $15-20 out of the 200 auction budget. But he's an injury/suspension risk and I could easily see Jamaal Charles getting the job by that point.
Tomlinson: All you ever hear about is why you shouldn't draft him, how he's slowing down, etc, etc but I like his rebound potential, plus he's got Dallas and the Bengals in weeks 14 and 15 (although Tennessee is tough in 16). I'm thinking of bidding up to 40 or 45 for him, but only if I miss Steven Jackson first (for the record, S-Jax has a heavenly playoff schedule).
