The Fantasy Freak Show Podcast: CJ2Lame is toast edition

Brad Evans


Hornswoggled, bamboozled, cheated — these are feelings many investors of top-flight running backs have felt for weeks. Recent history says misery has had plenty of company. Since 2006, 46.7 percent of rushers failed to measure up to lofty expectations (RBs drafted in the top-12 that didn't finish inside the top-15 in per game scoring). Based on the woeful first half play of several notable names (e.g. Chris Johnson, Rashard Mendenhall, Peyton Hillis) and season-ending injury to Jamaal Charles, one-third of preseason kings are on pace to finish as paupers. If Steven Jackson (No. 14 in per game scoring currently) and Maurice Jones-Drew (No. 15) don't end strong, that number will swell to 50-percent. With plenty of sand left in the hourglass, this year's group of underachievers still has time for a turnaround. Who should you buy? Sell? Craig Shemon, Brad Evans and Andy Behrens provided the answers.
