It bugs me how so many people are already labeling LJ as a bust this year after only two games; and two SOLID games at that. Here are some facts to put things in perspective for you:
-LJ has scored more fantasy points in his first two games than Shaun Alexander did last year in his record-breaking season
-If you extrapolate LJ's yardage total for the first two games over a 16-game season, he'd break Marshall Faulk's record for total yards from scrimmage.
-LT put up phenomenal numbers for the beginning of the season last year too, but for the last five games last year (the most important for fantasy football) he averaged 75 yards a game and TOTALED one touchdown.
-The Kansas City Chiefs are not gonna score one touchdown every two games (as they did the first two weeks) for the rest of the season, just as the San Diego Chargers aren't gonna average 33.5 points for the rest of the season. Touchdown-scoring is fairly random for any player in fantasy football, but LJ will get his.
-The theory that LT will put up better numbers when he faces tougher defenses is bull, in addition to it being harder for him to run, his rookie qb will committ multiple drive-killing mistakes against competent defenses and the Chargers will have to throw more to make up points if they're down. LJ, on the other hand, should put out beastly numbers when playing the next two teams on his schedule, San Francisco and Arizona.
So, am I saying that LJ will have a better season than Shaun Alexander last year or Marshall Faulk in his prime, or that LT will be a bust cadidate this year...no. I'm just saying that there's no reason to write LJ off this early, or undervalue him in a trade to get LT (as i've seen a couple times already). LJ had mammoth expectations from all of us for this season and therefore he is considered a dissapointment in every game he doesn't rush for 200 yards and score 3 touchdowns, and his owners are freaking out more than the ones who picked Shaun Alexander, who has had much less success against two much weaker opponents. LJ may or may not have the dream season everyone's talked about, but you all need to chill and just be happy that you got such a stud on your team.
