It is true, the cheifs and Vermeil have not been happy with their #1 pick during training camp and thoughout the preseason. However, against Seattle LJ looked very good and put up good #'s.
It's still a battle for the #2 RB spot in Kansas City. Between LJ, Blaylock, and Julien a little behind the first two guys.
I don't think it is set yet, but you gotta figure sometime during the season LJ will earn that spot. I say don't really worry about it to much about not having him on your team. If it looks like he has solidfied that #2 RB some time during the season, try to work a trade to get him.
