Post Calvin Johnson
We were kinda discussing Calvin on the "Jungle" board, but thought this board was more appropriate from a fantasy football standpoint. Whats everyones thoughts on him this year? I have the #7 pick on a 10 team league this year and am in perfect position to take Andre, but am scared as heck to miss out on Calvin in RD2. I understand that at 7 there could be a top RB, but between AJ and CJ, whats your thoughts. I just have a feeling Calvin is gonna top him in fantasy numbers this year (again).

Why scared? I view FF just like the real NFL draft - it is all about value. AJ at 7 is about right, while CJ would be a the right value for you at pick 14 in round 2. I wouldn't take Calvin personally at pick #7, that would be a homer pick for sure as he isn't a FF first round talent as of yet.

I actually try to devalue Lions players on my boards since in most of the league I play there are a lot of fans. It is pretty rare that I have a Lion on my team. Works out, cause I'm going to want them to do well anyways.

how many teams in the league? if there are 10 then in rd 2 you probabaly COULD pick CJ up with the 3rd pick of rd 2 BUUT thats going to leave you really short on top notch RBs. yer gonna hafta get lucky to land a good one outside of the 3rd round. if yer not in a PPR league I would advise against that road. if the league is PPR..shoot...go for it and pray you hit on a a sleeper or rookie! I load up of great WR's in PPR as they can be a much higher point total than 75% of yer average RB's.

EDIT: I stand by what I said in the Jungle though..AJ before CJ EVERY TIME! the guy just catches more balls! In a ppr thats huge.

So if its ok to take AJ at 7, why isnt it ok to take CJ at 7 if I feel he will have better numbers, and he DID last year. I understand your points though, not trying to argue.

Because part of the reason he feels this way is because he is a Lions homer. It also comes down to value, the value of CJ isn't there at pick #7.

Its perceived value, you don't a draft a guy where you think he lines deserves... you draft him the latest you can get him based on others value.

and dont forget AJ was hurt ast year...didnt play in like 3 games give or take...so add those games in and what would the numbers looks like? And while i agree that CJ's #'s might be better this year. do you REALLY wanna gamble on yer first round pick?? I dont.

Think of it this way, you could take CJ in the first round - then you are looking at having CJ and say Darren McFadden.

I'd rather have CJ paired with Ray Rice, Michael Turner or MJD (or even AJ) than a #2 RB you would get in round 2.

I'm in a PPR league with only 8 teams. I took Calvin at No. 7. . . lol. Then I got Roddy White in my 2nd round. I'mn't too upset about that turnout so far.
