FANTASY FOOTBALL STATUS REPORT: ROB KELLEY RB WASHINGTON REDSKINS

Matt Jones we hardly knew ya'.  A firm changing of the guard has taken place in terms of the Washington Redskins running back hierarchy as rookie Rob Kelley looks like he has supplanted the inconsistent Matt Jones based on what has taken place the last two weeks.  With Jones missing Week 9 with injury, preseason sensation Kelley went out and picked up 87 yards on 21 carries a score.  Jones returned this past Sunday but Kelley once again dominated touches as he rushed for 97 yards on 22 bellcow carries.  While Chris Thompson continues to get the looks in the receiving game, Kelley is now the easy call as the starting back for the Redskins going forward.  With Kelley having opened up eyes with a big preseason, what we are seeing now is not a total shock as the Tulane product has made alum Matt Forte proud.  Those who snagged Kelley off waivers have themselves a sweet value play who will make a difference the rest of the season, especially in standard formats.  As far as Jones is concerned, he can now be dropped in almost all leagues.
