12 team keeper league and those are pretty much my choices


Frye isn't an option, but Seneca Wallace gives you a higher ceiling than Johnson.


Agreed. Now HE has some WRs.

You doubters are nuts! "Good crazy or bad crazy?"

Seriously, Phil Rivers just went 334/ 2TDs 2 weeks ago, Rex tossed 3 in 1st half???!!

BJ could do exactly what Rex did yesterday easily.
I hate LJ Smith!

Exactly. He's like Roethlisberger. He doesn't make the dumb mistakes or forced passes that can lose your NFL team the game


you must have missed the raiders game yesterday.

Matthias wrote:Honestly, and weird as it is to say, but the Bears are more of a passing team than the Vikings. Grossman has a hell of an arm and a fantastic rookie receiver. Johnson does the smart play, isn't really a long ball guy, and has some pretty mediocre wideouts. The only guy who is really interesting is Williamson and it's always a crap shoot if he's going to actually catch the ball or not. And Childress is dedicated to the running game.

Johnson might end up with 3 TD's because the squad moves the ball and then he hits Travis Taylor or Jermaine Wiggins in the red zone but as I said earlier, I wouldn't bet on it. And I certainly wouldn't count on it. If you need to rely on him, you might want to check your other options.



Thus making him a GREAT candidate for sleeper. I mean anyone can pick someone like grossman as a sleeper, but I truely think Johnson has a shot to put up big numbers

You do know that this is the same Brad Johnson who is averaging about 215 yards, 0.66 TDs, and 0.66 INTs so far this season?

I mean, c'mon. I'm a Vikings fan and I actually LIKE Brad Johnson as their quarterback. But it would be a pretty thin day when I'd play him as my fantasy one.

No. That makes him a top pick for available. But as I said above, I'd roll with Seneca Wallace over Brad Johnson next week.

That is why he is a perfect sleeper candidate against a horrible defense. Just 2 weeks ago he did have 2 tds
