So someone offered you CJ for Ridley, is that what you're saying? That's tough. Quite a gamble on know production (ridley) vs CJ's potential. But for CJ to be useful in your league you need him to start catching more passes - will that happen with regularity with Jake Locker? I just get this feeling that CJ has lost something that ain't coming back.

i would stick with ridley. the o line for the titans looks horrible and with jake locker at qb who knows if they can stay in games long enough to get cj more than 10 carries a game
ridley looks like a stud running for that new england offense. with brady at qb and mcdaniels wanting to run the ball more this season he should see a lot of red zone and clock killing carries

I'd pass on this too, CJ just doesn't look good at all and the oline is horrible

If you only have 3 starting RB's on your roster I would stay put and ride Ridley for now. CJ2K would be an interesting bench RB for you if you have more depth at that position but poses more risk if either Foster or Sproles go down with an injury.

Ya after 2 weeks its worrysome. I was high on CJ as the #4 RB but he looks nothing like he did in the preseason. Ive lost confidence in him until the team shows they can do something

IMO both are a bit of a gamble but CJ is definitely more of one. Ridley has looked great and is getting carries, but the Pats didn't use a 2nd round pick on Vereen for nothing, and he'll probably be able to suit up soon. Even with that said, I'de probably rather have him than CJ, who will probably give you some good weeks but will DEFINITELY give you some duds.

help with mines?
