Guy wants Chris Johnson, willing to deal Megatron (WHIR!!!)

Postby mjedwards409 » Mon Sep 10, 2012 1:24 pm

2nd year CJ2K owner here. (Or as I now call him.=, CJ.064K....Do the math, it adds up) Anyway, I was a believer in a bounceback by Johnson this year. Obviously I don't want to jump to too many conclusions after week 1, but he looked awful. The run blocking looked awful. He was cutting back and forth to try to make the "big" play instead of just running where the play was designed and taking 3-4 yards when he had the chance.

The commish in my league is a big Titans fan, and a big Chris Johnson believer. He informally asked me if I wanted to trade Chris Johnson for his Megatron last week. I felt pretty strong at WR so I told him no at the time. He just texted me today and said the offer still stands. Part of me wants to see it through with CJ, but I just didn't like what I saw yesterday with his countless cutbacks always trying to make something big happen.

So I think I'd like to put a trade together for Megatron. However, I had Fred Jackson as well, so I'd need to get a RB back in return. (At least for a bit, depending on the results of Fred Jackson's MRI today) The rosters are below. I'm thinking about offering Chris Johnson and Antonio Brown for Megatron and McGahee. Throughts? By the way, this is a PPR league, so CJ actually gave me 10 points yesterday.

i would wait on fred jackson's situation before u go thru with the trade. if he's going to be out a 1-2 weeks then i would say take it. but dont offer brown. try and see if u can get mcgahee and megatron with cj and floyd, since he's kinda injury prone. if not then offer brown

but if jackson is out for a longer period dont do it, u will deplete yur rb stable too much
