Depends on time of possession.

I figure if Deuce runs for about 120 yards, then Jones will run about the same.

If Dallas\' defense can hold Deuce to 80 yards or so, then Jones runs 150+.

He will get as many as parcells wants him to get..they have a far superior line...and Parcells knows it..and..he loves to run screens..I watch Dallas play almost every week...and thier defense has alot of skill..and determination...

at least..135 yards..2 td\'s..and several catches..prolly 60 recieving yards..

Tap those brakes just a hair, I believe they have a better line than we do, but \"far superior\"? If that was the case, Reshard Lee would have been the clear starter during Jones\' abscence, and he would be hitting 100 yards every game.

Maybe a little off-topic here, but still relevant to J. Jones\' yardage...

Has anyone else wondered why the Cowboys haven\'t tried Eddie George out at fullback? We\'ve all watched George over the years, and at least a few of us probably remember how dominant he once was. These days, the unbelievable workload and constant pounding have obviously taken their toll. He\'s lost much more than a \"step,\" and at best he could only be considered a short-yardage or goal line threat at RB.

Still, George appears to be in good shape. He\'s a big guy who\'s never been prone to injury. He has surprisingly soft hands and has always been an excellent blocker. Is the Tuna missing the obvious, here?

The move wouldn\'t be without precedent. Ernest Byner had a respectable end to his career (with the Redskins, Ravens) by moving from RB to FB when his age began to catch up with him. I could be wrong, but I think Larry Csonka & Kevin Mack made similar moves in their waning years.

I realize George\'s ego may be a factor, but he\'s always struck me as one who really wants to help his team win, regardless of his role. Why not give FB a try? It would be better than rotting away on the bench behind a rookie...

Yeah, I thought about him, but before Julius Jones returned the Cowboys had been using Anderson more like a third-down back or to spell George. Anderson (6\'02, 230) is not quite as big as George (6\'03, 242). He\'s also 2 years older and over the course of his career has been more injury-prone.

It\'s clear the Cowboys have got their RB situation settled with Jones. The only way I could see George continuing to contribute at all was with a move to FB.

As for Julius Jones this week, I\'ll be shocked if he gets any less than 160 yards, 2 TD\'s. Hope he\'s on your fantasy team...
