Nice call... I just got RJ at the begining of the 3rd round in a 12 team league. I happen to agree that he is extremely underrated.

he just suffered a hernia so count him out for most of the season.

the ravens had to go through it with baxter and not only did he sit out for ahwile but it hindered his speed permanently...


I don't recall seeing him being out for most of the season, but he has had a history of hernias.

I know where Rudi stands go look at my rankings on the ODOTW.

I have him at the cusp of inside/outside the T-10.

Here is my proof.ooops forgot to leave a link... Tentative list from a few weeks back ODOTW #1

Only Charlie and I had him at 10....And nobody had him at 11. Mostly everybody varied between 13-16.

Chris Perrry smiss perry... :-°

They released Dillon because they have Rudi. That says a TON.

Yeah I remember before last season everyone was scared of Perry and calling Rudi another William Green etc... while I predicted he would put up better numbers than Edge.

Now my major concern is them throwing the ball on the bleepin goal line to bleepin Jeremy Johnson (or whoever that fullback is). Let the bruiser get the TD's!!!!

I don't do my rankings until after the draft but he should definitely be a top ten guy, and yes that schedule can only get easier.

Nobody caught this? I think hes a bit better than fat with ok speed.

I don't recall him saying this was a bad thing. But yes, Rudy is a large RB with decent speed.

im pretty sure he was traded but the fact still remains that they thought rudi johnson was not only the better player but the better person, which is who i would want on my team...

he is fat. any runningback like that i call fat. jamal lewis is fat, the bus, duce staley, anthony thomas, rudi johnson, etc... this doesnt mean that cant be good because i am jamal's biggest fan however coupling the fatness (= break tackle) with OK speed and no OL would make for a bad back...
