Every fantasy season, there are a few key events that change the landscape of any league. Sometimes, they creep up on us, slowly, avoiding our notice until it's too late. Sometimes they happen with a bang.
This is the first kind. But it'll hit you like the second kind.
Because Chris Johnson is done. CJ2K is a thing of the past, and in a few years from now you won't even remember his nickname. He's finished. Finito. Kaput.
And if you own him, you need to abandon ship. Now. Immediately. Yesterday.
You can go ahead and walk away from your computer if you need to. You can take a minute to go and wash your face. You can shake your head and mumble under your breath at the dinner table.
You can do whatever you like, but you need to accept this.
Chris Johnson is done.
Check out that stat line from Sunday:
11 CARRIES FOR 4 YARDS.
Yes, he did tack on 6 receptions for 47 yards (with a long of 16) but that was in garbage time.
He's a liability. Do this: call up the BenJarvus Green-Ellis owner in your league and offer him CJ straight up. No strings attached. He might just be stupid enough to take him.
No one will be that stupid by October. Get out while the gettin's good.
