I have Chris Johnson vs the Bills, Ray Rice vs the Browns and MJD vs the Jets. Which 2 should I start?

The real question is:

How the **** do you get Chris Johnson and MJD? Another one of these leagues where people are absolute morons in the draft I'm guessing.

Good point. I can only guess that one was acquired in a trade. If they were both drafted by him, then clearly he is either in a 4 team league or he's drafting against a bunch of morons.

Haha I'm actually in a 14 man league. Had the 13th pick. Got MJD w the 13th and then CJ w the 16th. Everyone was busy over Forte, Turner, AP, Manning, Brady n the suchs. I picked up Rice in the 8th rnd believe it or not. Schuab on the 5th and Vincent Jackson on the 7th. I had a good draft but I'm 5-4 :/ struggling to make it to the playoffs.

That simply makes no sense to me at all. MJD was a consensus top 3 pick. CJ right there behind him. Rice, 8th round in a 14 man league? And you are struggling to make the playoffs? What are you benching all these guys every week or what?

I'm mystified.

No dude. My entire team has struggled some weeks. I think week 6 all 3 or my rbs had a bye week. Week 4 all of my receivers had a bye. There's been weeks I've put up 150+ pts n some I've put up 60 lol. I call my team the best .500 team ever assembled

I found the same thing in some of the leagues I'm in. People were wary of MJD mainly because the last two years he became more of a backup and inconsistent. I couldn't figure out the CJ thing but people weren't drafting him high. I got him in 3 leagues in the 3 and 4th round. Rice is understandable. Who knew what the Ravens were going to do for sure with Rice, McClain, and Willis M. But the league I couldn't figure out was the one where I got Johnson, Peterson and Brees. I was laughing through that draft, a 10 man league.

Oh yeah, start Rice and CJ.

I know how you feel there. I have the highest point total in one of my leagues and I'm in 5th place out of 10 with a 5-5 record. Unreal.

My core team consists of the following:

A. Peterson
P. Manning
R. Wayne
C. Benson
D. Sproles
J. Stewart
and Pitts defense

Yeah, wow, that even blows more holes in the validity of the league lol. MJD 13th? CJ 16th? lol

Yeah- I hate you for making the AP trade and the Jennings trade. Now i fear your team very much come playoff time.

What sucks more is I have AP in my BIG money league. So i cant root against him either.

I do have P-ness envy of you Doggcow.

If you make the playoffs, with a team like that, you are gonna smoke some teams.

I think those trades worked out really well for my team lol. I Never would have snagged Favre if I hadn't traded with you, and he seems to outscore Manning, or at least keep pace every week!

Ochocinco and Sjax are still studs for you every week, so you have that. I didn't expect Grant to be so... mediocre this year, but at least he's good for 10-12 every week. If Rodgers and ****hole Kuhnt didn't steal his TD's every week he'd be a monster.
