Jets | Limited practice for Chris Johnson

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 14:42:43 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (ankle) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 18.

Fantasy Tip: After a big Week 1, Johnson had only 12 carries for 21 yards against the Green Bay Packers in Week 2. He's involved in a committee with Chris Ivory, and he may find little room to run against the Chicago Bears in Week 3.

Jets | NYJ RB trio splits snaps

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 08:47:55 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson played 27 snaps in Week 2, while RB Chris Ivory played 27 and RB Bilal Powell played 17 snaps Sunday, Sept. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Ivory's play could have elevated himself in the committee. He has 23 rushes for 145 yards and two touchdowns. Johnson has 25 carries for 89 yards and no scores. Powell has just five rushing attempts. Ivory has been a cheap flex option on FantasyScore thus far, but his stock is rising for the Week 3 tilt against the Chicago Bears. Johnson is a weaker flex option at this point.

Jets | Chris Johnson impressing

Fri, 22 Aug 2014 11:42:23 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson is impressing the defense he practices against every day. "Oh yeah, he still has it," linebacker David Harris said. "We noticed it the first day when we were in Cortland. He's still the fastest guy on the field. He's still got a lot of juice in those legs."

Fantasy Tip: Couple this news with his strong showing in preseason games, and Johnson should be considered an RB2 option on draft day.

Jets | Chris Johnson has solid night

Sat, 16 Aug 2014 19:57:32 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson had 10 carries for 63 yards during the team's preseason game Saturday, Aug. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson will likely never be the 2,000-yard back of old, but a performance like this is a reminder that he still has some burst left in the tank. The Jets want to run the ball on offense, and Johnson should have no problem producing like a RB2 if he stays healthy.
