Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
so he was dropped in my 14 team standard non ppr, salary league ($100)
he is $18...yes i know someone overpaid. but should i make the same mistake?
here's my team:
RB: a.morris, z.stacy, s.ridley
WR: d.thomas, m.crabtree, t.smith, d.hopkins, m.evans
DEF and K are irrelevant. i've already traded t.mason and d.pitta for z.ertz and m.evans for cap space and upside purposes.
i would be picking up c.johnson off of waivers and i think i'm the only one who can afford the $18 salary. i would be dropping m.evans. feast or famine, but behind the NYJ o-line?
HELP! i have until tomorrow to put my bid in for him. if i do this, i will have $7 left in cap space.
At $18 I wouldn't do it, but it depends in significant part on what RBs figure to become available in your league. You are thin at RB and will need more depth. My concern is the expense you incur for a committee back. While the Jets are a run heavy team it's hard to see Johnson getting sufficient volume to justify the price as both Ivory (goal line, short yardage and frequent "between the 20s" use) and coach favorite Powell (passing downs) figure to have more than token roles. Plus Johnson's skillset just isn't what it was.

I thought the same thing. But in a 14 team league, RBs with any type of potential are quickly picked up. I went ahead and put my bid in at $18, but only for depth and hopefully to use as trade bait (somehow!?). i just hate to tie up $18 on a RBBC...
I'm not familiar with this sort of league - What happens if you don't bid on him? Can others bid lower? What I'm getting at is: Will he just sit there overpriced on waivers?
CJ is a tough call just overall - total #$%$-shoot as to what kind of season he'll have.

he's stuck in FA for $18 (or more) depending on what someone wants to spend on him (depending how much salary they have to spend).
i have $83 out of $100 spent. by dropping mike evans ($7), that will clear up some space and when/if i pick up johnson and spend $18, i'll have $6 in cap space left.
