SJax & Randy Moss for Chris Johnson?

I was just proposed SJax & Randy Moss for Chris Johnson.

This is a pretty standard ESPN 10 person league. Roster is:

QB Kevin Kolb, Phi QB
RB Chris Johnson, Ten RB
RB Jamaal Charles, KC RB
RB/WR Ronnie Brown, Mia RB
WR DeSean Jackson, Phi WR
WR Steve Smith, NYG WR
TE Zach Miller, Oak TE
D/ST Ravens D/ST, Bal D/ST
K Stephen Gostkowski, NE K
Bench Dwayne Bowe, KC WR
Bench Wes Welker, NE WR
Bench Donald Brown, Ind RB
Bench Donovan McNabb, Was QB
Bench Mike Williams, TB WR
Bench Bears D/ST, Chi D/ST

Thoughts? I say I do it.

I think you should keep CJ. You lose more downgrading that position from CJ to SJax more than you gain upgrading your WR from Smith to Moss.

If you think CJ will still be the #1 RB, then you shouldn't. If you think SJax will suck because the Rams will suck, then you shouldn't.
I think neither of those things, so I think you do it. It gives you crazy depth, though you should consider trying to move a couple of those wideouts to get another RB.
(Drop the Bears D, unless you are forced to keep two defenses by league rules. Then, either McNabb or Mike Williams.)

Right now, Johnson's value is at its absolute peak. He'll probably have 25% fewer yards this season, and once more people realize that his value will drop. Even if the Rams blow goats, you should probably only expect a couple hundred yards and a few TDs more from CJ than SJax, so I'd do the trade to get Moss, who will probably be a top 5 WR.

I do it. Smiling. With a thank you card.
