Jets | Chris Johnson will play against Pats

Fri, 19 Dec 2014 14:28:08 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (knee) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 19, and is probable for Week 16 against the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($3,200) remains unimpressive at FantasyScore while being behind Chris Ivory in the backfield. Also, the matchup against the Patriots could feature plenty of passing from the Jets offense. Johnson is a deep flex play, at best, in daily games.

Jets | Chris Johnson fully practices

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 13:20:20 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (knee) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($3,200) still isn't worth a lineup spot while splitting carries with Chris Ivory, especially facing a New England Patriots defense that has allowed just five rushing touchdowns to running backs.

Jets | Chris Johnson probable

Fri, 12 Dec 2014 13:50:48 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (knee) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 12, and is probable for Week 15 against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($3,400) looks like a perfect sleeper selection on the surface at FantasyScore going against his old squad, who've been brutal against the run this year. However, remember that Chris Ivory ($4,300) is still in the lead in this backfield.

Jets | Chris Johnson a full go

Thu, 11 Dec 2014 13:50:59 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (knee) practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($3,400) is going against his old team in the Tennessee Titans this week. He's been looking better in recent weeks, but Chris Ivory ($4,300) remains in front of him for touches. Still, if there was a week to take a chance on him at FantasyScore as a cheap flex option, this might be the time to do it.

Fantasy Tip: While Johnson has performed better of late, he's still not worth starter consideration in seasonal or daily leagues as long as Chris Ivory is also in the mix.

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (knee) fully practiced Friday, Dec. 5, and is probable for Week 14.

Jets | Chris Johnson practices in full

Thu, 04 Dec 2014 14:37:34 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (knee) practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($3,300) had a season-high 17 carries for 105 yards in Week 13 as the team was heavily committed to the run. If you're willing to roll the dice that the Jets employ that same strategy against the Minnesota Vikings, you may have a steal on your hands at FantasyScore, but just remember that Chris Ivory ($4,300) remains the lead dog in this backfield.

Jets | Chris Johnson practices fully

Wed, 03 Dec 2014 13:11:47 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (knee) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Dec. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Even after a successful outing last week, Chris Ivory is still the team's lead back and Johnson isn't worth starting in lineups unless it's to provide value at other positions.

Jets | Chris Johnson tops 100 yards

Mon, 01 Dec 2014 20:51:20 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson had 17 carries for 105 yards in the team's 16-13 loss to the Miami Dolphins Monday, Dec. 1. His 17 carries were a season high, and he topped 100 yards for his first time with the Jets.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ripped off a 47-yard run early, and he continued to be effective throughout the game. However, Chris Ivory also carried the ball 16 times so don't expect Johnson to suddenly become the lead back going forward.
