Rudi Johnson's tough schedule ahead...

Postby kcs261 » Sun Sep 17, 2006 11:06 pm

This guy has been fabulous so far. You have to love the production. But from going to various sites, all you hear is about his tough schedule and that his value is sky high and that he should be traded now. What does everybody make of Rudi's schedule? I think he's a great back, in a great offense, and he'll get his numbers no matter what. Thoughts?

I own him in two leagues and have very little (to no) interest in trading him. Great back in a Great Offense running behind a Great Line. Schedule be d****d. Rudi will get his.

That's my view. The guy gets no respect. I wouldn't trade him for anybody expect LT2, Alexander, and, maybe, Larry Johnson (I don't know, though, with how things are going in KC...) Fanball has the total opposite view:

Don't Extend Johnson
Rudi Johnson's owners need to look past Sunday's two touchdowns, and instead look ahead. In addition to injuries to starting linemen center Rich Braham and tackle Levi Jones, Johnson's schedule will be taking a turn for the brutal. The Bengals won't play a soft defense until they see New Orleans in week 11. Here are the defenses Johnson will face between now and then: at Pittsburgh, New England, at Tampa Bay, Carolina, Atlanta, at Baltimore, and finally, San Diego. Do you see an easy matchup here? I don't. For now, Johnson is perceived to be an elite back. I'm worried that he won't be for long. The time to talk trade is now, especially if Braham and Jones are lost for a while.

His sched is tough but not brutal. Pitts and Balt, the rest are good not great D's. Until playoff weeks. It's like any other player, if you get an offer that helps you, take it. If not sit tight.
CheeseWhiz is a great substitute for plazma.

As long as Carson Palmer and Chad Johnson stay healthy so defenses can't overload the box, Rudi will put up numbers no matter who he plays against.
