Default Better 2nd year... Steve Slaton or Chris Johnson?

I liked him at WVU and he has a better surrounding cast too me with Schaub and Andre Johnson. I'm guessing Slaton will have the better year.

Chris Johnson in my biased opinion. :D
Better O-Line, healthier team, better backups, better defense to take off pressure. Blah blah blah, homer, homer, blah, homer. Or am I?!?!?!?!

One could make a case that he was the best rookie RB last season.

If I was putting money on it, I would definately be putting it on Slaton. He is a beastly runner.

Both guys have a lot of promise. I think Chris Johnson will be the focal point of the Titans offense. The Titans will look to run the ball. The Texans have an explosive passing game, so Slaton could benefit from it. I think Johnson will have a better season with more touches.

Slaton has a major advantage - he won't likely be the focal point of opposing defenses. Andre is the #1 weapon. Chris Johnson on the other hand is the #1 skill player on the Titans. While the Titans offense may be better running the ball, when it comes to an individual back's performance, I suspect many would prefer being the #1 RB on a pass first team than on a run first team. Slaton's speed and the Texans offense should compliment each other well as he's faced with few loaded fronts.

Slaton is also not in a carry share situation. I think that the load will shift towards CJ more than it was last year, but he'll still suffer from rhythm interupting spells and slim pickings when it comes to goalline carries.

So, all in all, I think Slaton has the better chance.

OzTitan summed it up pretty well with his post. I'm thinking it'll be Slaton as well, barring injury.

I think both have another amazing year. Tennesspeed is more talented, faster, but I think he could have some issues to contend with on the Titans roster this year. He'll catch more passes than Slaton, and get much much more press, but I think Slaton has the better year.

Why? One reason, ZBS. Slaton is not up there in terms of talent, but he has good vision and speed, so he can see the holes and pick up some nice yardage. I think he has a better year statistically.

I love Slaton. I think he's getting discounted for being on a team not getting as much publicity. I thought he had a more consistent year, where as Johnson would have games with a lot of yards and then follow those with down games.

I hope Steve Slaton based purely on the fact that I just traded for him in my keeper league and he's a phenomenal value keeper.

I believe Slaton will have the better stats just based on the fact that hes going to be the workhorse, while Johnson will still be sharing snaps with Lenwhale.

Nah, I agree w/ the Slaton guys. It's not like either is looking at a sophomore slump or anything like that, though imo.

To echo what others may have said, Slaton has the better chance of having the better statistical season. He's not splitting carries like Johnson will be. Nevertheless, I think CJ will be the more impressive RB.

Slaton was just as streaky as Johnson was. Especially during the first half of the season. Not to mention Slaton was allotted more carries per game. I think CJ only had one game all season where he had over 20 carries, and that was an OverTime game against Green Bay. During regulation time, he only had 19 carries.

The Titans run a ZBS as well. ;)

Chris Johnson. Both have good supporting casts, but the Titans are going to be doing pretty much anything they can to get the ball in his hands. While Slaton is very good and I expect a good year out of him, Chris Johnson's ability is incredible. As a defender, it's nearly impossible to take any kind of angle on him, and if he gets behind you, it's over.

Steve Slaton...

Andre Johnson will keep teams from stacking 8 in the box.

Who do the Titans have to do that... Is Collins still the QB?

It will be close, but I think Steve Slaton will take it.



And you have to love how he dominates on division opponents (most of his highlights are against them). In 6 division games, he has averaged:

17.1 carries for 104.6 yards (6.1 YPC) and 1.2 TDs with 4 100 yard games (wasn't he the only rusher to eclipse 100 against the Titans...twice?) and a TD in 5 games.

If Cutler can get defenses to be more honest and worry about the deep ball, it could really help Forte pick apart defenses up the middle. Hopefully Cutler can utilize him as a receiver as well.

Considering Forte was practically the entire Chicago Bears offense and faced nothing but 8 or more in the box, he deserves some more respect than this. He had more total yards than both Slaton and Johnson as well as more TD's and is a better receiver.

Sure, he had more opportunities, but he had a ****** line, no WR's, and a mediocre at best QB... don't forget about the fact our D sucked ass as well.
