Aslong as he's back in 2-3 weeks nothing more it fills a need and is decent value though I think CJ will rebound. Team looks good overall other than QB obviously puke level bad but everything else is excellent, contender team clearly even without a QB. Wonder if there is a way you can trade Witten or Gronkowski for a RB maybe Ryan Mathews? Jahvid Best? Maybe do a package deal with Freeman to get a real QB.
I gave CJ five weeks. Even in his best weeks, he has been -- at best -- the third best RB on my roster. When I can rid myself of that and get a legitimate WR1? I take it.
I did my due diligence on AJ before I pulled the trigger. I would never have made the trade if I thought this injury was a serious setback. According to most recent reports on rotoworld, he is almost all the way back already, which is way ahead of schedule compared to the original reports. In fact, Kubiak said today that there is an outside chance he could play this Sunday, which I actually DON'T want to happen.
I don't need him quite yet, as I have a favorable matchup and I want him to be 100-percent.
It isn't as though AJ was struggling like CJ prior to his injury... He was killing it, as always and, in a PPR league, he is about as money as you can get.
Moreno was just a throw in, because he would have had to drop a RB anyway (same with Plax on my side). It was essentially CJ for AJ, which is a pretty even trade, at this point, imo.
And, after having watched CJ in person last week, he doesn't look right. He doesn't have the burst that he's had the previous two seasons. I don't know if he is secretly hurt, out of shape, or just struggling because of the hold-out, but something isn't right... And, I don't think it will magically get turned around any time soon.
Five weeks is almost 1/3 of the season and he hasn't looked like himself... Not even for a moment in any game.
On the otherside, AJ has looked like AJ... He is just out at the moment.
I'm happy with the deal. I don't think it was a coup or anything, but, considering I have FJax and MJD to start every week going down the stretch and I was missing a true, stud WR1, it was a good deal for me.
