I have a chance to get one of these guys in a trade for my Wayne. We get .5 ppr, otherwise, standard scoring. Who do you like going forward? I rank them
1) Chris Johnson 2) Ray Rice 3) Michael Turner
Any disagreements? I like Johnson's schedule the rest of the way. I like how many catches Rice gets, and I like the fact that Turner seems to be peaking now and running great. Can't go wrong with any of them, but would like other opinions.

12 Team League. We start 2 QBs and get .5 PPR, otherwise standard scoring QBs: Stafford, Fitzpatrick, Collins RBs: Charles, Mendenhall, Best, Starks, Carter, Karim WRs: D. Jackson, Marshall, S. Smith, Green, TE: Hernandez, Cook
I would go with either Chris Johnson or Ray Rice. My reasoning is that they are more well-rounded due to their pass catching ability. Even when their teams get behind early, they will still be involved in the offense due to their ability to catch passes out of the backfield and make plays in that fashion. A good example was this past Sunday. Baltimore fell behind 17-0 in the first half but Ray Rice still remained a part of the Baltimore offense and was still very productive - 12 carries for 48 yards on the ground to go with 8 catches for 87 yards. He also added a late rushing score but, even without that score, his fantasy points would have still been pretty decent in what was a bad week for Baltimore.
The key is that Rice and Johnson do not disappear from the offense in those types of situations. Turner, on the other hand, is an excellent goal-line threat but he has only 5 receptions all year, which would indicate that Atlanta would go away from him if they fell behind by a decent margin in the game. I think that gives Rice and Johnson more consistency from week to week.
