Wow, KJ ran for more yards in the last 8 games of the season than any other running back. That's all I need to know. He should be a stellar #2, possibly a decent #1 running back. getting him in the 2nd round of a 12 teamer would be a great value.

If you're in a competitive redraft league, KJ won't fall out of the second round. Nor should he. He will be the uncontested feature back for the Lions this season. Last year Mariucci goofed around the first six games or so, ignoring the obvious talent pf KJ. He's a lock for >1,500yds and >8 TDs.IMO.

Totally agree and perhaps I didn't say so in my previous reply. I know that in some of my competitive locals, if he makes the turn in a 10 teamer, it won't be by more than a pick or two. Those #s look pretty solid too. The lone rub for me is what happens in that offense with so much talent at the WR position? Are there enough footballs to go around TD wise?

That's my only worry about him. Only two teams have had less red zone rushing TD's than the Lions over the last 3 years. And I realize part of that could be because the Lions haven't had a RB worth a crap since Barry. IF KJ can get me 8-10 TD's I will be satisfied as long as his rushing yardage is up in the 1,400-1,500 range. And of course he has the potential to do even better.
