Are we thinking at least 15 carries this week?

 

At least, yeah. He had 11 carries last week and Arians said it's going up. Hopefully closer to 20 touches. Also, Ellington is totally washed up. If CJ2K can stay healthy he might be the lead back for the foreseeable future here.

Agreed. If I was a DJ owner looking to fill the RB spot I wouldn't be too hesitant offering a WR2 up for Johnson.

 

20 touches would be enough to warrant a weekly start.

Cutting him wasn't very meaningful in terms of his ability.  They didn't want to guarantee his contract and they didn't have the roster space for two RBs who don't play special teams.  CJ2K is long gone, but 2015 CJ should be back this weekend.

Predictions for CJ2K tonight?  

 

I feel like he's either gonna go 10-40-0 or 20-100-2.

 

Arians can't afford not to have CJ impact the game.  He steps up, or the Cards don't go anywhere, not with Palmer getting creaky and the WR corps a shell of what it once was.

I don't necessarily buy that Dallas is stout but I don't think you can drop the guy that got the majority of the run. I mean there's no way they continue to trot him out there if he's this terrible, but if he's going to get a lionshare of the carries like he did yesterday there's atl east a greater chance he holds some value than others.

who drops him first?

 

 YOU? or Arians?

 

?

People need to remember he was missing  his starting OT and OG....was running behind backups. I give him a pass for now. Be different if he wasn't getting the carries.

He was clearly their lead back, he only lost snaps to Ellington once the Cardinals were in catch up mode and passing most plays. Kerwynn Williams played one snap on offense. One. Arizona seems to have lost all faith in him. 

 

Most of the time CJ was getting hit in the backfield - Cardinals o-line play was simply awful. CJ didn't look great either, but if he's going to continue to lead the backfield in carries he still has some value. I'd consider him an RB4 at this point. I think Arizona had some injuries on the left side of their line coming into this game, so if those guys get healthy there still could be better days ahead for CJ.
