Ballard or CJ2K - WHIR

Postby Fancycash34 » Fri Dec 21, 2012 10:29 am

I'm in a standard PPR league and I need some outsiders thoughts. Anything will help. I am already starting Forte and Moreno for sure but now I need to decide between Ballard or CJ2K. Chris Johnson just scares me lately, if you take away his 94 TD last week he had 28 yards on 20 carries - 1.4 yds / carry avg! Let me know what you guys think. Here is what their stats look like individually the past 4 weeks. (Att-Yds / TDs)

Player - Week 12 - Week 13 - Week 14 - Week 15

Ballard - 13-41yd / 0 TD --- 9-41yd / 1 TD --- 19-94yd / 0 TD --- 18-105yd / 0 TD (Meweldo Moore sniped his goal line carry Wk 15 and fumbled)

CJ2K - 21-80yd / 0 TD --- 13-51yd / 0 TD --- 19-44yd / 0 TD --- 21-122yd - 1 TD (94 yds & TD came on 1 run)

Matchups:
--Ballard @ KC
--CJ2K @ GB

Delone Carter should be out again so Ballard will get 20+ touches. They're going up against an easier opponent whereas Tennessee could easily be down 21-0 after the first quarter and have to all but abandon the run.

KC also has the weeker rush D when comparing them to the Packers. Lets hear it everyone! Am I crazy for considering starting Ballard in the Championship game over CJ2K?! WHIR - send link

This actually makes a lot of sense. Everyone says start your studs, but Johnson hasn't really been playing like a stud. I agree the titans may struggle to keep up with the packers and may have to abandon the run early. The colts on the other hand may get out to an early lead, and that will lead to more touches for Ballard. I think Moore is in the doghouse now after that goal line fumble last week, I expect Ballard to get the majority of the snaps here.

Thanks for the help on mine.

I like Ballard this week, and his opponent is too weak to pass up. Go with him.

I like Ballard as the safer play. He's ran the ball well over the last 3 weeks and with a good matchup on deck I can see him going for 100 yds and a td.

Ballard has been getting a steady amount of points consistently (I had to play against him in the last round of playoffs) and facing the chiefs isn't gonna do him any harm. Also, the chiefs have a top 10 passing defense (I think 7th) so this might force Indy to run even more. I go with Ballard.

It's a tough one, cause it would be pain to watch Johnson explode on the bench.

I think I would base it on who your other players are. If many of your other players have favorable matchups, then I would go with Ballard. However, if your team doesn't have favorable matchups, then I'd go with Johnson, and he's the player who will make or break you, and that's one of the times where you have to take risks to win.

I like Ballard more, I have to start both of them sadly. I think Chris Johnson will be a dud unless he's able to score early.

No question it's Vick Ballard. I believe Colts will go up big in this game and will use Ballard to run out the clock.

Tennessee is going to have to throw in their tilt with Green Bay.

Go with BALLARD!

You kinda have to go with CJ2K. He's been killing you every time he's on your bench, and his big play ability is too tough to sit.
