Rudi Johnson, what is he worth to you?

Postby Santacruzer » Tue Feb 28, 2006 3:46 am

I think it may be getting to be well known that I am not a very big Rudi proponent. I have slightly changed my opinion after he had some success in the second half of last season, but I am still a little reserved about his "stud" title, and overall success.

Early projections have him a clear-cut first rounder in FF. Some even top 6. I want to hear why you think he should or shouldn't be there.

Personally, I still wouldn't consider him a first rounder, but I want to hear what some of you think before I post my arguement.

I got him mid-2nd in an 8-teamer last year... that was good value. But buyer beware this year... I don't know if he can produce without Palmer.

Even with Palmer, what would you say in a 10 - 12 teamer?

with Palmer, I'd say somewhere between 7-11. Solid back though... won't blow you away, but dependable from week to week.

Don't get me started on the "dependable from week to week" part :-° .

So 7 - 11 is your range.....

I have him in the 4-11 range with these backs:

Tiki Barber
Edgerrin James
Lamont Jordan
Domanick Davis
Steven Jackson
Willis McGahee
Clinton Portis

Like was already said though, a lot depends on Carson Palmer.

Interesting group, Wizzle. I wouldn't put a few of them any higher than a 2nd round pick in 12 teamers though.

I would like to see more of Lamont, but he is worthy of 10 - 12 spot. Tiki has not shown his age the last season or two, but at 31 is he able to keep it up? And who is going to steal his TDs?

And DDavis, Jackson, and McGahee are solid second rounders IMHO.

So is Rudi closer to 4th spot, or 11th spot for you?

After a quick glance, I think I would put him at about 10. That is based on things like Edge staying in Indy (even though I'd probably still take Edge over Rudi in almost any situation.), and DD being the lone feature back in Houston.

McGahee is going to be one of the toughest calls this year. I think he is going to be one of those players that makes or breaks a team.

Rudi Johnson, eh?

For like the 5th time, yeah, a lot depends on Palmer. But there is another factor..Chris Perry. He saw a decent amount of time last year, but didn't really hurt Rudis value. I think he will continue to see more and more time as the 06 season progresses which will then take from Rudis value. I'de put him with..

Steve Jackson
Brian Westbrook
Rueben Droughns

id put Rudi and Steven Jackson are a higher value than westy or droughns. I personally think sjax is higher than rudi. along with palmer, he also has perry to worry about.
