i have Dmac on my team but I'd go with CJ here. He started the season slow last year after a lengthy holdout and never got into a groove but he showed you in a few games what he could do.

this year they have a couple WR options and locker is trying to find his groove. they are going to run early and often and dump down to RB when locker is in trouble.

Dmac is a great back if/when he is healthy. That is a big if.

I understand the reasons why people would pick Run DMC over CJ2K. If he was healthy for once in his career, he could potentially be the best fantasy RB this year, but that's a HUGE IF. I don't think he's worth a first round pick at all in my opinion. I think you'd want the most sure thing with your first pick and Run DMC is far from it.

This is exactly why I would (and did) go CJ. McFadden is incredible, but he's been injured every year. Now they're talking about giving him more reps, and he has no clear handcuff like he did last year in Bush. How is a guy that misses at least a few games every year going to hold up to even more reps? At least last year, when I drafted him on my team, he had a phenomenal handcuff who could (and did) produce at least low-end RB1 numbers. This year if you lose Mcfadden, who do you play? Not even clear if its Goodson or Taiwan Jones (!).

CJ had the holdout last year, but he showed signs of life at the end of the season. He is still young. This year Britt should be around afte a few weeks, Locker is a more legit deep threat, Nate Washington and Kendall Wright are promising receivers, not to mention Cook. The OL is a concern, but Johnson is the kind of runner who can do well around the edge if the line gives up interior penetration. There is risk with both but IMO the odds favor Johnson to produce more gross points over a fantasy schedule, even if McFadden is more likely to have a game or two that blow everyone away.
