Titans | Chris Johnson approves of Sylvester Croom's tweaks

Tennessee Titans RB Chris Johnson approves of new RB coach Sylvester Croom. Comparing Croom to Earnest Byner, who held the job during Chris Johnson's 2,006-yard season back in 2009, Johnson said "it seems like everything is going well. ... He's a pretty good coach." Johnson said Croom has tweaked a couple of Johnson's steps during running plays and routes coming out of the backfield. "That's a little minor change that I can tell is already helping me out," Johnson said. Tennessee is aiming for Johnson to log more receptions this year.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson has experienced struggles with technique and system over his Titans career, and maybe these alterations could get more productivity out of him. Though newly acquired Shonn Greene looms as a threat for carries, especially in the red zone, Johnson could in fact wind up as a solid value as a draft-day RB2 that will more than often perform as an RB1.
