Fred Taylor Starting (1 Viewer)

Even though replacement running back Greg Jones had his first career 100-yard rushing game against Baltimore, coach Jack Del Rio said the Jaguars remain committed to the injured Fred Taylor."Fred's our star running back,'' Del Rio said. "When we get him back, we look forward to getting him on the field.''But Del Rio said Taylor, who has missed two of the past four games with a bone bruise in his right ankle, wouldn't be rushed back."When we determine that he can come back, we'll utilize him,'' Del Rio said.http://www.jacksonville.com
Fragile Fred is at it again... Greg Jones value couldn't get any higher.

I think I can speak for everyone that has both Jones and Taylor, please let Taylor rest until his foot is 100%. It would serve the Jaguars better also. Jones is more than capable and a healthy Taylor for the nfl playoffs would really help the Jaguars chances.

Yup and yup.
 
Just noticed something in my league.When I combine Taylors and Jones' numbers, in my scoring system it equates to RB14 in FFpts scored.And thats not counting any stats from the Houston game, when most of us started Taylor and didnt get Jones' stats when he came in for Fred. If you add in Jones' numbers from that game, it bumps them up to RB10 numbers (current RB10 is Dunn)So Im glad they will not rush him back. Theres no need to. And Im more than happy using this combo as my RB2, as long as we know whos starting each week.

It would be the absolute best if Taylor sat until the real NFL playoffs. That way I can have Jones in the fantasy football playoffs. I fear that Taylor will be back in week 12 though. *sigh*BTW- I own both of them and would rather see Jones full time than Taylor.

I think most Taylor/Jones owners would concur. Jones has generally been able to play entire games. Knowing Taylor's starting guarantees nothing.
 
you gotta love g. jones who was the goaline back put into starter, its like the best of both worlds, you'll get the TDs and no one will come in to vulture his TDsfred take your time

 
When was the last time Fred Taylor had a good full season? :wall:
http://www.footballguys.com/TaylFr00-3.php2004: 1224ru yds, 345rec yds, 3tds

2003: 1572ru yds, 370rec yds, 7tds

2002: 1314ru yds, 408rec yds, 8tds
:lmao: This has been their course of conduct since preseason with Taylor - rest him until he is absolutely ready to go and not rush him at all. The Jags are winni ggames so it is a lot easier for them to rest him and hope he can get some tune-up games at some point in weeks 12-14 and be fully ready for the final push for the playoffs.

fred take your time
I did see Jax bring in Toefield inside the 5 and get a carry. Only 1 though, and then they brought in Jones to finish the deal. Little nervous about Toefield being worked in more and more though.
 
On the Jaguar site... looks like Taylor will be a game-time decision. Sounds like this is his preference, not necessarily the coaching staff's.

Had a chance to pickup either Gado or G. Jones this week in my biggest $$$ league, chose Gado :unsure:
Pretty easy decision if you ask me. You know Gado will be the starter in Green Bay as long as he can stay healthy. While Jones may be more productive as a starter his value is completely dependent on Taylor's health. If Taylor returns next week and doesn't get hurt again, Jones will have little value for the most part outside of possibly in a TD-heavy league.
 
Talk about a :bag: I traded for Fred Taylor a few weeks ago (sent off Gabriel & a rookie pick for him).That owner also had Jones... but wouldn't trade Jones.Lucky for me Taylor's behind Ronnie Brown & Gado for me.

Time to join in the whining. ;) I traded for Taylor and Priest in one league recently. My #1 RB there is Julius Jones. :wall:

I don't own Greg Jones, but I do have Anderson and Gado to start until Taylor returns.

FWIW, even though I don't have Jones, I want Taylor @ 100% when he comes back, preferable in time for the FF playoffs. Same with JJ.

I did just the opposite.My reasoning is:

1) It's a dynasty league (with contracts) and I think Jones has more value going forward.

2) I took the high risk/high reward crap shoot on Jones since his schedule (@TEN, @ARI, @CLE, IND, SF, @HOU) is so damn appealing. After owning Taylor for the past few years, it's interesting being on the "other side" of his durability issues.

 
We all felt Taylor was an injury ready to happen. Next year I would:1) draft him based on ADP, then after a big game trade him fast.2) talk him down so he falls late in a draft3) just avoid himI like plan one. You get a game or two then get a trade.

 
Wanted to bump this thread since I just heard Fred was the dreaded "game time decision".And since I picked up Greg Jones this week, Im obviously concerned now.Anyone have an update on whether Taylor will play tomorrow?

 
I've got both Jones and Taylor and I'm hoping that Taylor stays out until he is 100%. Jones isn't as good as Taylor at 100% but just as good as Taylor at anything less than 100%.I was at the game last week and Jones runs hard. The JAX offense looked sharp and can wait for Taylor to get up to speed.Willie

JACKSONVILLE - Jaguars receiver Jimmy Smith practiced for the second consecutive day Friday and was upgraded to probable for Jacksonville's game at Tennessee.

Smith missed practice Wednesday with a hamstring injury and had been listed as questionable.

Backup linebacker Pat Thomas, meanwhile, will miss Sunday's game with a hamstring injury. He was downgraded from doubtful Friday.

Running back Fred Taylor missed his third consecutive practice this week and remained doubtful with a badly bruised right ankle.

Defensive tackle Marcus Stroud also a third practice in a row Friday with a groin injury and remained questionable.

Fantasy wise, I would say that Greg Jones might be Taylor's equal or better if starting, because he gets the goaline carries.
 
I just traded C Martin for Fred Taylor (already had Greg Jones). That way I'm guaranteed of a starter and whoever it is I would start them over Martin as my #3 RB. Might have lost value but it gives me three stud RB's (LT, Westbrook, Taylor) for the rest of the way and all their backups (somebody else had C Houston).

Dont forget that in the Houston game, Fred was ready to go, we all put him in our lineup, only to have Taylor come out with an injuryand Jones get the rest of the carries and the TD.Even if they say hes ready to go, I may start Jones.

 
I need Taylor to stay injured. Greg Jones I picked up two weeks ago, and if Fragile Fred has his normal injuries, GJ with his schedule is a good start.

 
Not much new to add... I don't think Taylor plays but he's going to at least see if he can (from CBS Sportsline by the way, FWIW):

Fred Taylor, RB JACNews: According to the Florida Times Union, Fred Taylor (ankle) will test his injury prior to kickoff and said he could play if his cutting ability is alright.Analysis: Greg Jones should still get the start, but now you'll need to monitor the situation up until kickoff.

listed as inactive here....http://www.thecommish.tv/Articles/Data/g216m62amj2848l.asp
Thanks
Any confirmation on this??? Not to look a gift horse....but I've never even heard of this site, and everything else I've seen indicates that Taylor will test the ankle prior to kickoff.
 
TheCommish has does not have Fred Taylor on the inactive list.He will try to play this week.GTD :hot:
They did about 5 minutes ago, so it's apparently been updated. Sunday mornings will drive a FF owner to drink. :wall:

 
Per Fanball:You better sit down for this one. Fred Taylor will start for the Jaguars despite being listed as doubtful on the injury report with an ankle injury. In other Jags' news, Jimmy Smith is expected to play after being upgraded to probable late in the week.

Fred Taylor, RB JACNews: According to a source close to CBS SportsLine.com, Fred Taylor will start for the Jaguars in Week 11 at Tennessee.Analysis: Taylor was listed as doubtful to start the week. This means that Greg Jones will not start and he is no longer a recommended starter for this week. He will still see some touches and would take over for Taylor if he gets hurt. Taylor is a risky start due to his injury.Profile

Jaguar radio broadcast just said that Fred WILL play.
