A. Johnson...STUD WR?

Postby CAL_BEAR » Mon Nov 08, 2004 5:52 pm

Hey Guy's...I just picked him up last week. The owner was a big PIT fan and offered me Johnson for Burress. I accepted the trade as I see his name floating around as a "stud" and it looks like he is being targeted; but his production has been in decline over the last few weeks. First time I actually watched him play yesterday, seemed like Carr was looking to Gaffney...Even when Johnson appeared to be open; also dropped a few balls. Wondering from fellow owners or HOU fans, is this a trend? Is he considered a must start? (Have R. Moss/M. Clayton/A. Boldin in the stable). Thanks...

Although I consider him a stud and a must start you do have a point after his amazing 170 yards and 2 tds in week 5 his numbers have decreased.

Week 6 66 yards no td
Week 7 Bye
Week 8 74 yards no td
Week 9 28 yards no td

He definetly is in a decline. He is one of those guys that'll bust out again soon. Like next week against Indy (should be HUGE numbers......look what he did against MINN) He'll come back around. He is definetly a top ten WR.

I'm an AJ owner. I drafted him in the 4th round. I expected him to be a bit more consistent that he has. I realize Champ was on him this week, but he has seemingly hit a wall after that last big performance. Hopefully AJ will get it going again.

Hehe, it's my fault...the Mercer Sig Jinx is definitely in full effect...

Remember when Steve Smith got hurt? I was using a Smith sig.

Remember when Portis was doing nothing? I was using a Portis sig. The week after I changed to the AJ sig (week 6 I believe), Portis had a huge game and is still doing well.

It's just a matter of time before he gets better, but it might not be until I have another sig change. :-/ I think I'll be changing it pretty soon...I really don't know which player or what will be next though. :-?

he is still a stud. his numbers have prolly been in the decline since other teams realize he is studdly, they have been focusing on him more, leaving Gaffney and Bradford open.... I have him and think he will come thru

Ah yes, the Portis sig jinx. I was the first to call you out on it.

Btw, if you can wait 'till I play the guy with Andre then change it, that'd be good.
