Taiwan Jones will flourish in the 2012 fantasy football season
Every fantasy football fan knows if you are going to pick Darren McFadden of the Oakland Raiders in your 2012 fantasy football draft don't expect him to play a full season.
In McFadden's four-year career he has missed 19 games due to injury, including nine games in 2011.
With the best backup in fantasy football, Michael Bush, now in Chicago, the explosive Taiwan Jones emerges as the 2012 fantasy football handcuff for injury prone McFadden.
Jones has to beat out some competition from Mike Goodson on the depth chart, but Jones should come out on top of that battle in training camp.
Matt Williamson of Scouts, Inc. believes Jones will get his chance to become a brand name with McFadden's injury history:
“I love McFadden, but he is always hurt and I think his running style lends itself to injuries,” Williamson said. “I do expect Jones to be a big-play guy this year that develops in the passing game."
Furthermore, with McFadden's injury history, Jones will not only become a big-play threat but Jones will become a brand name 2012 fantasy football with big upside and be taken in the later rounds of your 2012 fantasy football draft.
