Matt Forte for Calvin Johnson

I play in a unique league. I call it a 10 times yardage league. Rushing and receiving yards are 1 point per yard. 30 points per TD, negative 30 points for a lost fumble. Our commissioner tells me this is to avoid ties, but it looks to me like we are just multiplying the points times 10. We play 2 RBs and (3 WRs or 2 WRs and a TE).

Anyway someone in the league is looking for a RB. I have Mendenhall, Bradshaw, Forte and Beanie Wells as RBs. My WRs are D. Jackson, CAR - Smith, Hines Ward, Know and Walter HOU.

I haven't played Forte yet. It was a mistake both weeks, but not as big of one in week 2.

Is it worth it to try and sell high on Forte and buy low on Calvin Johnson?

I know that means I will be spending the rest of the year looking for a RB on the wavier wire, but the best year I had was doing that.

Let me know what you think.

Thanks

KUBIAK isn't that high on CJ. I think Forte might still be good moving forward.

With half points for TDs. Also, most online systems allow decimal points, ie .1 points per yard.
