Bassically I was offered Kevin Jones for Larry Johnson and Kevin Curtis.

My WRs are fine, I have Chad Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald, and Plaxico Burress, so Curtis will never start for me.

So bassically, who is more valuable, Kevin Jones or Larry Johnson?

Well against a bad rush defense KJ got 70 yrds. In my league he was worth 10 pts and LJ was worth 18 his first good outing since week 1. If you are of the mind that you don't need KJ and can wait to see if Priest gets hurt then do it. If you need a full time starter I'd keep KJ

Well, here is a statistical comparison:

Kevin Jones: 83 carries, 226 yards, 2.7 ypc, 3 TD

Larry Johnson: 69 carries, 344 yards, 5.0 ypc, 4 TD

Gotta go with Johnson. Don't do the trade, and wait for a better offer to utilize your depth at WR.

personally, I would keep KJ becuase he is a starter and he plays week in and week out. With Garcia now the qb I think KJ will start to improve. Remember last year he got off to a horrible start, but by the end the of the year he was doing great things. If you think Priest is going to get hurt, get LJ, becuase i think he is the better back. But for now, I would keep KJ

I have Larry Johnson and Curtis, I would be getting Kevin Jones.

Just so everyone knows.

Corey Dillon and Warrick Dunn are my only runningbacks ahead of LJ, so I worry for when I have a bye week that I have to start a backup RB.

That is a decent trade and I only expect KJ to improve with Jef GArcia under center.

I would keep Larry Johnson. He's been putting up amazing numbers for a backup, and later in the year, when Priest is beat up a little, he'll get more carries. Johnson is definetly more valuable behind a better O-line than KJ behind a terrible O-line.

I'd take the trade for KJ. The Lions have an easy 2nd half schedule and KJ turned it on last year in the last 8 games and he has a great chance to do that this year.

Ok guys, now consider this.

I was just told by a guy who has LT, that if I aquire Kevin Jones, He will give me LT, Mewelde Moore and Brett Favre for Corey Dillon, Mike Anderson, and Kevin Jones. And Brett Favre would be a real good thing for me, seeing as Peyton Manning has a bye week and I decided to draft Joey Harrington over Drew Bledsoe(Thanks alot Harrintonisdaman! Laughing )

So these are the 3 ways my RB corps would look like.

1)The way I have it. Corey Dillon, Warrick Dunn, Larry Johnson, Mike Anderson

2) Corey Dillon, Warrick Dunn, Kevin Jones, Mike Anderson (I'd lose Kevin Curtis)

3) Ladanian Tomlinson, Warrick Dunn, Mawelde Moore (I'd loose Curtis and gain Favre)

What is the deal with Corey Dillons injury?

To the first deal, Curtis is a good enough WR that you can get a better deal for him than that.

However, if you're sure you're getting that second deal, I'd go for both in half a second. Maybe quicker.

Hmmm, well i told the second guy that I needed his word on the second trade before I did the first one.

Curtis is a non factor for my team as a starter, though, I have 3 top ten guys. If I weren't going to do these trades, do you think I can get a decent RB for him?

For him and LJ I think you can get someone better than KJ. IMO lol.

Go with LJ, all the way but everyone is going to hate it because you just can't help but expect a comeback from KJ.

This is an absolute no brainer. Kevin Jones as already stated has a much easier 2nd half schedule. Larry Johnson will more than likely see less carries as the season goes on. Kevin Curtis wont get the ball thrown his way onc Holt and Bruce are back.

LJ (unless Priest Goes down) and Curtis' value will go down while KJ's will go up. This is a GREAT trade for you.
