2013 Outlook: Bust (overvalued)Last updated on Jul-28-2013 by Ben Standig
Felix the Fragile left Dallas, but remains in the NFC East after signing a one-year deal with the Eagles. Jones actually played all 16 games last season for only the second time in his career. However, without the burst he entered the league with, Jones rushed for a personal-low 3.6 yards per carry. While a two-way threat, Jones only caught 25 passes last season. In other words, the former first rounder no longer plays up to his name vale. On the other hand, Philly should run plenty this season and with an injury to LeSean McCoy (and maybe Bryce Brown), Jones could find his way into receiving decent touches. No more than a late, late round flyer or perhaps a McCoy handcuff, sort of.
Redskins tight end Jordan Reed showed us last week why you should never feel fully comfortable starting players coming back from a concussion until the ball is kicked off and he is on the field. Right now, fantasy owners of Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell should exercise a similar level of caution. Head coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that Bell still has some tests to pass following his Week 13 concussion, but he added that Bell "looks good."Fantasy Analysis:
Well, that's vague, but it could certainly be worse. Bell's status will be updated Wednesday. He has a favorable matchup versus the Dolphins in Week 14, but if he can't play, Felix Jones and Jonathan Dwyer would likely split the touches against the seventh-most generous defense to running backs in fantasy.
