Anyone else continue to start this guy? It really bothered me, the thought of benching my first round pick...but no more....he is done until further notice. Anyone else on board??

Yes, until he gets past this tough schedule and starts getting his usual number of carries.

I'm not at all angry about the situation, though. When I drafted him, I fully expected him to ride the bench for the first five or six games of the season. If anyone is in a league with an owner that has become disenchanted with LJ, then definitely try to trade for him. These poor performances won't last very long.

Addai & Gore went before I picked LJ in my draft.

my main point is that why would you knowingly use your #1 pick on a guy you knew you were gonna bench in the first few games?

I would've taken Addai or Gore if I had the chance so I took LJ knowing that he would be rusty. I had planned on rotating my RBs until he started showing he was back to normal and his schedule soften up a bit. I had better match ups this weekend so I sat him. Thats fantasy football for me, managing my team.
