News: The Lions and defensive tackle C.J. Mosley have agreed to a two-year deal according to the official team website.
Analysis: Mosley's journeyman career continues on in Motown where he'll provide depth along the defensive line. Don't expect big stats from him.
News: The Jaguars signed DL C.J. Mosley on Tuesday.
Analysis: Mosley had 76 catches in 59 career games with three teams (Vikings, Jets, Browns) and will just provide depth for the Jaguars. Continue to ignore him in IDP Fantasy play.
News: The Cleveland Browns placed DL C.J. Mosley on injured reserve Monday, the team announced. In addition, the club signed free agent DL Derreck Robinson. Mosley appeared in 12 games with one start this season, recording 18 tackles.
Analysis: Mosley and Robinson have no Fantasy value. Ignore them in all leagues.
News: Browns DL C.J. Mosley injured his right leg in the first half Week 13 against the Chargers. He left the stadium on crutches.
Analysis: Mosley is just a low-end contributor and hasn't recorded a sack all season. Leave him on waivers.
News: -In an attempt to shore up their defensive line, the Cleveland Browns have signed a player familiar to new coach Eric Mangini. Defensive lineman C.J. Mosley signed with the Browns on Friday. He spent the past three seasons with the New York Jets, where he played for Mangini, formerly the head coach, along with several of Mangini's assistants who are also now with the Browns. Mosley entered the league as a sixth-round draft pick of the Minnesota Vikings in 2005 after playing in his home state at the University of Missouri. Mosley was traded to the Jets during training camp in 2006 and played 35 games over the past three seasons for New York, making three starts and recording five sacks.
Analysis: Mosley had 17 total tackles, 1.5 sacks and two passes broken up last season. Keep him off of Fantasy rosters.
News: Jets DL C.J. Mosley recorded five tackles and a sack of Patriots QB Matt Cassel on Thursday night in Week 11.
Analysis: Mosley now has 11 tackles and 1.5 sacks in 10 games. He's not worth having anywhere near your Fantasy roster in IDP leagues.
News: Jets LB Victor Hobson (five tackles), DB David Barrett (four tackles), DL C.J. Mosley (three tackles, forced fumble) and DL Bryan Thomas (sack, forced fumble) all helped out with nice contributions in a 40-13 rout of the Dolphins in Week 13.
Analysis: None of these players have anything more than minimal Fantasy value and should not be starting in Week 14 against the Browns in any IDP formats.

Mosley (coach's decision) as inactive for Week 9 vs. Washington.

News: The Jets' list of inactives for Week 8 against the Bills includes QB Marques Tuiasosopo, DB Drew Coleman, RB Darian Barnes, TE Jason Pociask and DL C.J. Mosley.

Mosley had one tackle and a sack. DB David Barrett had an interception. DB Kerry Rhodes had three tackles. LB Jonathan Vilma had three tackles. DB Erik Coleman had four tackles.

News: The Jets listed QB Kellen Clemens, DB Gus Scott, RB Derrick Blaylock, BJ Askew, LB Cody Spencer, T Adrian Jones, DT CJ Mosely and DE Dave Ball as inactive for Week 12 vs. Houston.

News: The following Jets are notable inactives for Week 1 at Tennessee: QB Kellen Clemens (emergency QB), WR/KR Tim Dwight, RB Cedric Houston, LB Anthony Schlegel, DT C.J. Mosley, TE Zach Hilton and DE/LB Trevor Johnson.
Analysis: Of these players, only Cedric Houston nd Zach Hilton should be owned in any Fantasy leagues. They should both be reserved for Week 1. With Houston out, expect Derrick Blaylock to see extra touches. He will, however, share carries with Kevan Barlow and Leon Washington. Houston remains a nice No. 3 RB option with Barlow a lesser option in larger formats.
News: The Vikings acquired QB Brooks Bollinger from the Jets for DT C.J. Mosley and an undisclosed draft pick Thursday.
Analysis: Neither of these players will affect any Fantasy leagues in 2006. Ignore them.
