I guess you know Lung better than most of us. 8-o :-b

Oh! You mean the picture he posted!. Unlike that bust, CJ will be much easier to let go of. :-b

Are you guys really going to cut Johnson? I mean I can see not starting him, but cutting him? Imagine if he does get it going, however how small the chances are.... Imagine you cut him and he gets it going and hes on someone elses team. That would be the worst thing ever lol.

yeah thats what makes the situation even worse. you cant cut him simply because he is still a feature back, and there is a very slim chance he could snap out of it....but he isnt startable....and he isnt worth anything in trade to anyone who has watched football this year....so he is pretty much a wasted roster space. its pretty much insult to injury !+)

For PPR leagues, I find that having that stud TE is usually what makes a good team great. I would like to add Mr. Vernon Davis to this list. He has the same QB he's always had, he has Gore tearing it up so he's not having to stay in to block as teams are respecting the run.

Vernon Davis, meet bench. Mr. Heath Miller, welcome to the starting spot.

This is more of the play calling and coaching change I think? Im not positive but its what I can come up with. Vernon is without a doubt talented. He carried them in the past basically.

Who's the biggest bust of the season mid-way?

Postby curly » Mon Oct 31, 2011 9:08 am

Chris Johnson, no doubt

Someone in my league picked him first overall. Bad move there

His team is currently 2-5

It wasn't a bad move picking CJ in round 1.

Be realistic.

He was still a HIGHLY desirable player on every board.

That's what MAKES him the bust of the season.

And at this point, it's a done deal. He killed MANY teams (one of mine included) this season.

Congratulations, winner/loser: Chris Johnson.

I had a 3rd round grade on him this year in my 14 team league which basically made him a non-option for me since he was rated so high on everyone's list. The interesting topic begins next offseason as to where the consensus puts him. My guess is still within the top 15 which is far, far too high for him. He's lost a step for sure...
