    Turner for Chris Johnson

    Just got offered this trade in one of my leagues.

    I'm pretty set at all positions, and Turner has been good so far, but I think he is on the decline soon. Take away two big runs, which aren't the norm for him, and you're looking at a very, very mediocre season so far. Obviously CJ2K isn't going to run for 2000 this year, but I can't imagine he won't regain the form sometime soon (maybe next week against Denver will help move that along).

    What do you guys think? Obviously this owner is soured on Johnson and I might be able to steal a stud for Turner who is honestly breaking down. The stats don't show it, but I'm a Falcons fan and have watched every game the past 3 years. He looks different this year, and not in a good way.

      • I agree. I have Turner in two leagues and I'm trying to sell high on him in both. I just think you get a chance at a stud you take it. I'm just not that high on Turner going forward. Take away two big runs and his YPC is awful. If big runs were part of his game, I would be ok with it, but honestly we've faced two teams that are pretty weak against the run (Eagles especially). Plus, his carries at the goal line haven't been nearly as explosive as seasons past.
