They have the same floor, but Johnson's ceiling is higher than Forte's. If I had to pick between the two, I'd say that Johnson is more likely to be have a 2,000 yard total type of season. I don't expect him to, but the potential is there.



Thank you. That helped a lot. I think Chris Johnson sounds like the guy I need.

Agree. Forte is the safest after CJ. Johnson will rebound to his old self. Forte isn't losing the redzone touches that he wasn't getting in the first place.

The other side of the coin is to remember that it's your team. If you really want Forte, then take him. Depending on your draft position, you'll most likely not have another shot at him. I'm just telling you what I think. I can't see the future, so do what you think you will be happy with.

Exactly. People forget, last year while Forte was going off for a top 5 season Marion Barber was getting 9-10 touches a game and all the goalline touchdowns. Barber had 3.7 yards a carry last year, Michael Bush had 3.8 yards a carry last year. I think the addition of Michael Bush is being incredibly overblown. If Forte fails to live up to expections, I don't think it will be because of his spell-beck.
