    hillis was a one year wonder. he was a guy who really was nothing special in denver, and went to cleveland and had a breakout year. this is not so shocking though, it happens plenty of times.

    chris johnson though was so dynamic in both the run and pass game, and now he is arguably the worst starting running back this season.

    I actually have Chris Johnson and Peyton Hillis in one of my leagues. The funny thing is, I'm still 8-2. It's a rather weak league. I drafted Rice 5th overall and couldn't resist taking Johnson on the snake back in round 2. Drew Brees was still staring me in the face in round 3, so that saved me. I then picked up Bradshaw 2 rounds later and couldn't turn Hillis down after that. I thought it was the toughest runningback corp I'd ever had, but now I'm barely scraping by with Johnson and Hillis; especially with Bradshaw hurt for probably the rest of the year. Fortunately, Johnson looks to be warming up after week 10 and Rice is the stud I'd hoped he be, plus I can flex in Steve Smith who I snagged late in the draft. What really helped me the most though was getting Jimmy Graham in the final round to pair up with Brees. As soon as their bye week is up here, I should be good to go.

    I realize I was very fortunate, but hey, they drafted weak and I took advantage by getting a good, well-rounded team. Just think if Hillis and Johnson were studs too and Bradshaw wasn't injured. The hardest part would be deciding who to bench.

    not so fast chris johnson is back! look at his last 2 weeks yes week 9 his numbers were not all that impressive but watching the game he ran very well when the team finally changed up their blocking scheme. week 10 he blew up for 180 yards combined. I would suggest sticking with him and riding him to the playoffs CJ2k is back!

    Thats what I'm talking about. 20+ points for CJ2k! FINALLY!

    to late though. watching lots of cj yesterday, i could honestly say that was the first time all year he looked like the old chris johnson, with his cut backs, running hard, making people miss, etc.

    i know vs carolina he had a good fantasy game and the yardage was nice, but i also saw that game and despite the high yardage, he did not look like vintage chris johnson.

    yesterday was his first vintage chris johnson game all year.

    And now with faith restored, he'll probably disappear again.

    whoever had him on their fantasy team is most likely done anyway, so it would be irrelevant for most fantasy owners.
