    To be fair he was injured once...... ****ing Ravens.

    However if he's somehow around in the late second or third round I may scoop him up in hopes that our new line makes him more consistent. Although all the sure things have to be off the board, and I doubt that happens. I'm thinking Greene might be a sneaky pick in like the later rounds. Won't get a lot of yards, but might get a lot of TDs. I'll take him late if he's around.

    CJ evens out over the course of the season, but lets be honest, the last two years there were way more single-digit point weeks than double-digit. He'll absolutely kill you for four weeks then go off for 35+ points the fifth week.

    He was worth an early pick because he was the bell cow. He got 90% of the carries. With the addition of Shonn Greene who knows how that affects his value.

    C.J. is fools gold, dont let his 1200 rushing yards last year trick you into buying he's a top RB.

    He only has good games vs bad teams like Buffalo, or Miami.

    Maybe if he was in the AFC East he'd be worth a 1st pick, but he's not. He can't even top 100 vs the Jaguars.

    The really sad thing is not that the ESPN yappers spout invalid opinions all day long, but that most people believe what they say. Why anyone would see ESPN as something other than a cartoon is beyond me.

    Well ESPN is owned by a child's company.

    Might as well be watching the Disney Channel.

    It's pretty easy to understand why those players are ranked ahead of CJ. Rice and Charles are clearly safer picks and should be taken before CJ. Rice has ranked in the top 10 points amongst ALL fantasy players each of the last four seasons.

    I am not as high on Spiller due to one year of production and MJD due to injury, so I would prefer CJ over them. As for Gore, I think he's one of the best RBs you can get in the 3rd-5th round, but I would take CJ over him.

    CJ in late 2nd/early 3rd = steal this year though... IMO
