Many reasons. Forte is not an NFL back IMO. He is a tweener. He is not a true running back, but not a true full back either. He lacks the burst through holes that you want from a back. His vision is good, but still not as good as Chris Johnson. I think he can be an average back in the NFL. A guy that you know will come to work day in and day out and get the tough yards you need, but nothing spectacular.

Heres's some outlook from Jeff Fisher on how he wants to use CJ and Lendale

Titans coach Jeff Fisher anticipates a near even split in touches between starter LenDale White and first-round pick Chris Johnson.
"I would assume it would be close to 50-50, maybe 60-40," he said. "We’re going to use them both depending on the game plans and it makes sense to take advantage of both of their abilities. I think we’ll have a better gauge once we get to the middle part of the season." The Titans could begin the year using White more, but eventually make it an even timeshare with Johnson.

per roto...Thats great news for CJ, a 50/50 split means he will get around 12-15 carries with alot more receptions, and that should equal a few big plays a game, I'll see how true this is week 1 but if it is I will be starting him more then a few times this year.

Great news for us that grabbed him this season. I have 9 leagues and I think I own him in 7 of them :-°
