Trade Hypothetical - Larry Johnson's Value

With the poor start to this year's top RB, the Cheifs' Larry Johnson appears to be the only one whose performance draws the most negative coverage.  While Ladanian Tomlinson and Stephen Jackson are disappointing, neither has seen their coaches call their number so infrequently.

In combination with last season's workload, the anemic passing offense and O-line issues, this seems to have LJ amongst the lowest valued of the top RBs.  (Sorry Ronnie Brown.  You're close to the lowest value amongst allstarting RBs, but you're not in the top 5.)

The real question is what is Larry Johnson's current value.  I made an offer of RB Edgerrin James and Ladell Betts for Larry Johnson and had it countered with Ronnie Brown and Brandon jackson for Willie Parker.  I tossed back Edgerrin James for LJ and was rebutted with LJ/Vince Young for Willie Parker/Tony Romo.

Too much?  Too little?  Just right?
