Player Spotlight

Just call him Mr. Fantasy Frustration. We never know what to fully expect from Detroit running back Kevin Jones. First, he was billed as a fantasy superstar, and then he was a fantasy bust. Now, he's become unpredictable on a weekly basis. In Week 4, Jones rushed for two TDs against the Rams, and many fantasy leaguers started him with confidence against Minnesota in the Week 5. Jones responded with only 8 rushing yards, and was benched again this week by a lot of fantasy players. Those who benched him could only vent more frustration, as Jones, playing behind an injury-depleted offensive line, rushed for 127 yards and a TD. He also caught six passes for 36 yards. Jones is easily the most inconsistent RB in fantasy football.
