How are the Jamaal Charles owners holding up?

Postby Favre.com » Sat Oct 01, 2011 3:05 pm

How are you making up for the big loss the past couple of weeks? Trades or Free agency? I have been working with Jacobs, Addai, LT, and random plug ins to salvage a 2-1 team so far but its tough when your RB2 was very weak to begin with and you reached for Chad Johnson as well.

Here's to hope.

I would be one of the owners who had Charles, but I traded him and Jennings for McCoy and Roddy White. Lucky me, huh? But kid who I traded Charles too is 1-2 (lost two in a row) and it doens't look like it is going to get any better for him.
A win next week and all is forgotten.

my girlfriend is in last place. initially after the draft her team looked awesome...i thought it was the team to beat. she drafted three combos from "strong" offenses...

qb- rivers
wr- bowe
wr- m williams (tampa)
rb- j. charles
rb- blount
te- gates

i mean bowe and blount have been ok, but nothing like projected.. and the rest of her team has completely choked. unfortunately she doesnt have much depth at RB. i almost feel bad for her :-b

I am the most threadbare 3-0 team in history. I picked up a poor man's Charles in McCluster, have lost Peyton and by the looks of it, Gates. Oh, did I mention my other RB is Gore? So yeah, I feel great. Thanks for asking. :-{

In my money league I'm 2-1, been lucky, second week my opp had a 0 at WR, would have lost if he played any other WR he had and then last week came up dudly but faced the lowest scoring team, so I'm a pretty weak 2-1 but I'm trying to make it to the playoffs, which is all that matters because anything can happen ;-D

I'm sitting at 2-1 right now. A little more fluctuation in my weekly scores then I would like but thankfully I had Tate and Sproles sitting on my bench to help with my rb woes. Doesn't hurt that a game that looked like i might lose last week was saved by monstrous turnouts from Finley and the Detroit kicker Hanson. Looking forward is a little sketchy unless Best can perform consistently and Mendenhall can get something going.

I'm a bit of an unlucky 1-2. It's a 12-team keeper league and I was able to keep him at great value, but still...coming out of the draft many felt I was the team to beat. The bad: my only other starting RBs are/were Gore and DeAngelo Williams, who have both been completely unproductive. The good: I have Welker and Charles Johnson at WR. Other starters include Big Ben, Owen Daniels, N. Robinson, GB DEF, and Rackers. Benches are deep, so there is nothing in FA. I did trade Burleson for Helu to add depth at RB and as a potential keeper. Also, I had drafted B. Scott so I should have a plug once Benson's suspension comes down. Basically, I'm trying to scrap things together while Welker is carrying me...though it doesn't help that I've had the most points scored against me in the league. Never give up!

Charles Johnson was a first round bust for the Steelers, who retired in '02

I'm 1-2, and looking like 1-3. Losing Gates too didn't help and I just don't have the punch I need to win. My best players are MJD and Blount who are both just "good." Dexter has been a huge downgrade, I'd say about 12 points off of Jamaal a game.
10 rushing yards - 1 pt
10 receiving yards - 1 pt
20 passing yards - 1 pt
All TDs - 6 pts (QBs favored)
