NFL | Chris Johnson working out

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 16:46:56 -0700

Free-agent RB Chris Johnson (shoulder) has been working out even though he was shot in the shoulder during a drive by shooting last month. Johnson has received interest from several teams.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson has not signed with a team at this point and may have wait until after the draft to find a new team. Johnson likely will be a backup next season and may not be worth a drafting in leagues next season.

NFL | Chris Johnson won't face charges

Thu, 12 Mar 2015 12:31:12 -0700

Free-agent RB Chris Johnson (Jets) will not face charges after being arrested on a misdemeanor weapons charge. Angela Starke, a spokeswoman for the state attorney's office in Orlando, said "the evidence was not suitable for prosecution." Johnson was also shot in the right shoulder in a separate incident during a drive-by shooting in Orlando earlier this month.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson continued to be a disappointment with the New York Jets last year sharing time with Chris Ivory in the backfield. He averaged 4.3 yards per carry on 155 attempts for 663 yards and just one touchdown. It was the first time in his career he failed to reach 1,000 yards rushing. His offseason off-the-field exploits won't endear him to many NFL teams, either. Johnson may be a late-round flier for running back depth in really deep leagues in 2015, but nothing more.

NFL | Chris Johnson released from hospital

Mon, 09 Mar 2015 11:13:36 -0700

Free-agent RB Chris Johnson (Jets) was released from the hospital Monday, March 9, according to a source. Johnson was shot in the arm and is now at home resting. He did not have surgery.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like Johnson will be good to go for offseason activities, although he still needs to find a team. If/when he does find that team, he will probably have no more than a complementary role and would probably be a flex option.

NFL | Chris Johnson injured in shooting

Sun, 08 Mar 2015 10:12:14 -0700

Free-agent RB Chris Johnson (shoulder) was shot in the shoulder during a drive-by shooting in Orlando Sunday, March 8. Johnson was taken to the hospital and is in stable condition.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson likely will need time to recover from his injury, so he probably will sign with a team later in the offseason. Johnson likely will not find a starting job but could find a solid backup job with a team. He could be an option in the later rounds of drafts depending on his role with his new team.

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.
