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.

Jets | Chris Johnson looked rusty

Fri, 08 Aug 2014 09:28:51 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson looked rusty in his debut with the team against the Indianapolis Colts Thursday, Aug. 7. RB Chris Ivory (rib) was injured in the game and RB Bilal Powell (hamstring) is still nursing an injury, so Johnson was the team's lone healthy back for this game. Johnson dropped a pass on a third down and lacked burst while running, rushing for just two yards and a touchdown on four carries.

Fantasy Tip: Cimini said there's no reason to be alarmed, and he's right. It's just the first preseason game. Not much was gleaned from this game with Ivory and Powell sitting out. Johnson is the most experienced of the three, and Ivory has had problems staying healthy, so CJ2K will likely be the most valuable of this three-headed monster on your draft day.

Jets | Three RBs will receive playing time

Wed, 06 Aug 2014 11:50:17 -0700

New York Jets RBs Chris Johnson, Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell will all receive playing time this season, and the team likely will use a running back-by-committee approach, according to head coach Rex Ryan. Ryan said there is a chance the team uses the hot hand during games.

Fantasy Tip: Committees are not great news for fantasy owners, but the team wants to use all three in their running game. Johnson probably will have the most value entering the season because of his experience. Johnson's spot in starting lineups will depend on the matchup each week. Ivory and Powell likely will be later-round options as well as handcuffs for Johnson.

Sat, 02 Aug 2014 19:16:26 -0700

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 15:33:06 -0700

Jets | Chris Johnson sits

Sat, 26 Jul 2014 12:05:54 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (knee) was not a part of team drills Saturday, July 26.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson will probably sit here and there throughout training camp as a precautionary measure for his surgically repaired knee. He's still the Jets' top running back option and should be drafted as a low-end RB2.
