Weird things happen. What can you say. McGahee has been one of the most consistent fantasy performers this season. He had, what, TDs in seven consecutive games until tonight? You can't predict anything in FF.

KJ's a stud?


In terms of comparing him to guys like Adrian Peterson (chi) and other various rbs off the waiver wire...Ive always said when Martz uses him Jones is a beast, and it doesnt matter the defense because they pass so well he gets his yardage...Of course he's not a must start, but honestly in the playoffs id rather live and die with the likes of him vs another pick up guy off the wire

dropped Kevin Jones, benched Plaxico Burress and Lee Evans. Thank you Joseph Addai! Saved my season, still have my super sleeper Chris Redman tomorrow too.

Never bench the leading rusher in the NFL, even if he is a rookie and gets you 14 carries for 0 points.

Stud.

Damnit.

He better tear the Bears a new A-hole.

:-b... Steve Smith stopped being a stud the minute Jake Delhomme went on IR.

I just read a thread where KJ and McGahee were mentioned as studs. What is this world coming to?

From the RB slot this year, I really only see 4 studs with a fringe 5th if you consider his injury

LT
ADP
Westbrook
Addai

Fringe 5th - SJax. He's been solid since his return

How some of the mighty have fallen this year -
Larry Johnson
Shaun Alexander
Rudi Johnson

I really wouldn't be surprised to see SA go third round next year in some leagues after this pitiful year.

Rudi is back [just in time]. I played him at RB2 and he scored decently.

I also played KJ at Flex and he came through as well. I played Marion Barber for my RB1 and he had a great week.

Only stud I benched is Harrison and who knows if he will play at all this season. With Rudi back I dropped Watson and grabbed Gonazlez after watching the game last night in case I need another WR option for the semi finals next week.

I won this week's playoff battle against a lawyer by over 100 points. I called my son to ask how I was doing and he tells me... "Dad, you have 121 points now."

"So how many does my opponent have?" I replied.

"He has 17."

LOL! We both scored some more and he closed the gap a little but I knew it was over. On to the Semis against the league leader who has Brady and LT.

Good luck to all you guys. You have helped my team all year and I hope I have contributed something to some of your wins as well. ;-D
Go Bears!

Thank you, finally some one with some common sense. If you read some of the posts here http://www.fantasyfootballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=377226, these guys will have you believe McGahee is in that class above. He is a very good FF RB, but NO WAY is he a must start every week for every team.

As for KJ, he's way below McGahee as a FF player. I'd start plenty of WW guys over him (Grant, Graham, Fargas, Chatman (or Gado), Young, etc.) depending on the match-ups.
