Well, he's spelling his name wrong, and that's not my fault.
I don't want to count on anything, but everything is trending toward Ryan Mathews being much safer as a RB than he looked in the first week or so. It only takes a few screwups to get back to splitting carries. Or... random coach decision making, etc. But this is going sort of more along the lines of how I envisioned it at the start of the year... and I'm down with that.
Back on topic, we all (the football universe) said that last week was going to be the week that CJ gets started. And he failed. So I plug him into my lineup and hear the giant sucking sound each week, but what can you do, when your #1 guy is not injured, and is supposed to be getting plenty of carries? It would be quite a relief to see him hit the century mark on the ground at last. But if he doesn't perform this week, I have to think that there are big problems coming for a great many fantasy football teams.
I was burned the year Chad Johnson was a bum for half of the year and a mega-stud for the second half... I don't think I could even trade CJ away... I'd KNOW that my trade was jinxing my team.
I agree... if he does nothing against Cleveland, there's reason to think the year will be a total bust.
