Chad Johnson to show up

Posted on: June 3, 2008 3:59 pm
 

In a surprising development, Bengals WR Chad Johnson said Tuesday he will show up to mandatory minicamp next week.

Johnson said he doesn't want to get fined, which could be $8,000 maximum by the Bengals if he were to miss the entire camp. If he missed training camp, Johnson could be fined $14,288 a day.

But now Johnson plans to report, which is great sign for Fantasy owners. He might not be as productive as recent seasons and could pout, but Johnson is a solid No. 1 option when he's on. And if he's playing with the motivation for a new contract or to get traded, Johnson could be great.

If you like Johnson, you'll want to draft him somewhere in the end of the fourth round or beginning of the fifth, and he will be one of those players who make or break your season.

So the question is, do you draft Chad Johnson this year as a starting Fantasy option?

Chad Johnson to NOT show up

Wow in the span of one day Chad says that he both will and yet does NOT NEED to show up. Kinda crazy? Thats the only way Ocho Cinco does it baby. In the end, I think the Bengals will realize their team sucks and is sunk for this season. They'll trade him and look towards the future. You don't want Ocho making this year a living hell for Housh who may or may not choose to stay with the team next year.

Chad Johnson to show up

CHAD JOHNSON IS A #2 WR AT BEST ON ANY FANTASY TEAM.  HE IS WAY TO INCONSISTANT AND YOU CANT TRUST THAT THE CAOCH WONT JUST SIT HIM FOR ATTITUDE ISSUES.  HE IS NOT EVEN A HAS BEEN HE IS A NEVER WAS.  HE HAS THE TALENT BUT HAS ALIENATED HIS TEAM AND COACH TO THE POINT WHERE HE MAY NEVER SEE THE BALL AGAIN.  A CHANGE OF SCENERY WOULD DO HIM GOOD BUT HE IS A GUY THAT NEEDS A GREAT SUPPORTING CAST TO MAKE HIM LOOK GOOD.  HE ALSO NEEDS TO JUST SHUT UP A PLAY!

Chad Johnson to show up

I would certainly draft him--just about like I would otherwise.  I sure don't see him lasting till the end of the 4th round in a 12 team redraft league.  He will go more at the end of the third round at the latest.  He always has been somewhat inconsistent--putting up huge numbers one week and disappearing for a few weeks--but has still been an elite WR overall past 3 years (maybe longer).

He may fall because of this holdout, but I would be glad to scoop him up after the top WR are gone.  Would have to recheck my list, but he has to be in the top 10!
