I am convinced that Chris Johnson will be identified as the best Fantasy Player this year! He has scored many more fantasy points than the next closest RB (MJD).
In my favorite League, where QB fantasy points are huge, (due to bonus points for long TD's and 1pt per 30 yards with bonuses kicking in at 250 yards) CJ is the only non-QB on the top ten scorers list!
At issue is his ability to withstand the RB punishment for the remainder of the season. Every team knows that he will be running the ball a lot in an effort to beat the rushing record. Therefore, most are "stacking the box" to hold him down.
While I do not think he will break the record, he will go over 2000 yards! A great achievement. If the Titans were winning the Division, he would be seriously considered an MVP candidate. His name is being mentioned lately but really only in passing (no pun intended) because the focus quickly moves to the QB'S i.e. Brees, Manning, Favre and even Rodgers.
Good Luck Chris Johnson! I am cheeering for you to break the rushing record and be recognized as the best RB in the NFL this year. Yes, even ahead of Adrian Petersen who has been under-performing of late (and I am a Viking fan!).
