Jets | Chris Johnson a full go

Wed, 19 Nov 2014 13:19:08 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (knee) practiced in full Wednesday, Nov. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson was starting to be more involved in the offense before the team's bye. That could continue, but the Buffalo Bills pose a stiff matchup for Johnson and the Jets' backfield, making him a weak FantasySccore investment at $3,400.

Jets | Chris Johnson hopes role increases

Fri, 07 Nov 2014 14:56:47 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson hopes to see his role continue to increase after more than 100 combined yards in Week 9 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said the team likes to pair Johnson and RB Chris Ivory in a rotation depending on the game situations. "I think it's important for any running back to be able to get carries early and get consistent carries," Johnson said. "I don't think there's any running back out there that can get a couple carries and really be successful without being able to get in a rhythm."

Fantasy Tip: It was nice to see Johnson more involved in Week 9, but it's anyone's guess as to whether the Jets will give him an opportunity to repeat that performance against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The matchup is nice, making Johnson ($3,400) at least semi-intriguing at FantasyScore as a cheap flex option.

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (ankle) practiced fully Thursday, Nov. 6.

Jets | Chris Johnson will play in Week 9

Fri, 31 Oct 2014 13:26:44 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (ankle) practiced in full for the third straight day Friday, Oct. 31, and is probable for Week 9 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson has quickly faded into obscurity behind Chris Ivory in this backfield. You shouldn't even consider Johnson for your FantasyScore lineups until New York can find ways to get him involved.

Jets | Chris Johnson frustrated with role

Thu, 30 Oct 2014 15:02:20 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson, who carried the ball just three times for seven yards in Week 8, said he's frustrated with his limited role in the offense. "This is the first time I've ever felt this type of frustration, but there's nothing I can really do about it right now," Johnson said. Johnson and offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg discussed the possibility of expanded his role two weeks ago, but that hasn't come to fruition. Head coach Rex Ryan insisted that Johnson isn't being phased out of the offense.

Fantasy Tip: Until we see the Jets involve Johnson more in the offense, it's not wise to go with him in your FantasyScore lineups.

Jets | Chris Johnson practices fully

Thu, 30 Oct 2014 14:21:59 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (ankle) participated fully in practice Thursday, Oct. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson still isn't worth starting in seasonal or daily leagues. He's been much too inconsistent coming off the bench.

Jets | Chris Johnson unhappy with role

Thu, 30 Oct 2014 08:12:27 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson said he is frustrated with his small role on offense as well as the team's struggles. "Of course I'm frustrated," Johnson said. "On top of having a limited role, not playing as much as I want to play and then on top of that we're 1-7. It's frustrating." Johnson received only 16 snaps in the team's Week 8 game. He rushed for seven yards on three carries and caught two passes for 13 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson has not done a lot this season and has been part of a committee at running back. Johnson has a price of $3,400 on FantasyScore, but owners should be able to find a better option.

Jets | Chris Johnson a full go

Wed, 29 Oct 2014 14:12:55 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (ankle) practiced in full Wednesday, Oct. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson has become an afterthought in this backfield; he had just three carries for seven yards and two catches in Week 8. He isn't even worth his cheap FantasyScore price of $3,400 (6.8% of cap).
