Jets | Chris Johnson expected bigger role

Mon, 16 Feb 2015 15:24:54 -0800

Free-agent RB Chris Johnson (Jets) said he expected to have a bigger role with the New York Jets this past season but saw his playing time decrease as the season went on. Johnson said he sat down with former head coach Rex Ryan to talk about his role with the team but was never given the chance to show his talent.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson likely will join a team as a backup this offseason and see limited touches next season. Johnson could be an option in the final few rounds of fantasy drafts depending on which team he joins but will not be a weekly starting option.

Jets | Chris Johnson leaving helps salary cap

Sat, 14 Feb 2015 12:06:58 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson's option not being exercised will save the team $3.5 million in salary cap space, adding to the $45-50 million they have already.

Fantasy Tip: As previously stated, a change of scenery will probably be good for Johnson, who had the worst season of his career in 2014. Although, Johnson could very well still be part of a committee approach with his next team.

Jets | Chris Johnson to hit free agency

Sat, 14 Feb 2015 11:36:41 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson's option will not be exercised, as expected. Johnson will become a free agent.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson had the worst season of his career in New York in 2014. It's hard to believe the change of scenery will be anything but good for Johnson, who ran for just 663 yards and one touchdown last season.

Jets | Chris Johnson expected to be cut soon

Sat, 14 Feb 2015 07:16:06 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson is expected to be released in the next few days, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson could join another team this offseason but likely will be a backup running back at this point and will have limited fantasy value. Chris Ivory could become the Jets' top running back and could be a low-end No. 2 running back if he wins the job.

Jets | Chris Johnson expected to be released

Fri, 16 Jan 2015 16:11:38 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson, who had just 663 rushing yards this year, is expected to be released this offseason. Johnson is due to make $4 million in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson was another big disappointment this season for those that took at chance on him as a sleeper running back. There's always hope that he can regain some steam with a new team in 2015, but the likelihood of that happening now is remote. Consider Johnson more of a bench player for fantasy football squads next season.

Fri, 26 Dec 2014 13:40:29 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (knee) fully practiced Friday, Dec. 26, and is probable for Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson did go over 100 yards the last time he faced the Dolphins, but there are probably better options available to you in FantasyScore this week. Look elsewhere.

Jets | Chris Johnson fully practices

Thu, 25 Dec 2014 14:20:05 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (knee) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson had a season-high 105 rushing yards against the Miami Dolphins in Week 13, but still isn't a strong FantsyScore play this weekend. Johnson has only received 20 carries over the past two weeks, and he has only caught three passes in his last four games.

Jets | Chris Johnson takes part in practice

Wed, 24 Dec 2014 13:45:23 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Dec. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson has been receiving more carries over the last month and rushed for 105 yards the last time he played the Miami Dolphins. Johnson ($5,555) probably is not the best option for owners on FantasyScore since there are better options for owners to use.

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.
