I like KJ and I think with Martz' system he could easily be a top 10 fantasy back this year (he is #3 currently).

And by the way, I'm obviously playing Portis and LT the vast majority of the time. I did draft Portis ahead of Jones, after all, indicating I feel he is a better fantasy value. But some matchups can be interesting. I could have played Jones last week and got more points out of him.
I understand that, but he's not as good as LT or CP, and he's not nearly as safe a bet for 100 yards. he'd be a good flex player, but anytime you replace LT or CP with him, that's a huge gamble. I mean, how likely is mike furrey to outscore LT? yeah he did it last week, but i'd NEVER replace LT with him for any reason besides injury.

Re: Week 5 RB selection

Good points. Not sure that Furrey versus LT is a good comparison between KJ and CP.

Two things with Portis that concerns me as far as season productivity goes are: shoulder and late game touches. I love Portis. If I didn't have the #2 selection overall and instead had #4 or greater, I would have grabbed him. I just got lucky he got injured in the pre-season and Saunders offense looked like crap. Too much doubt in early September which will always linger (just a teensy weensy bit) in my mind.

Thanks for the input.
