Cardinals | Chris Johnson plans to play in 2017

Sat, 03 Dec 2016 21:22:55 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson (groin) indicated that he intends to play next season despite suffering injuries that have cut short his last two campaigns.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson's 2016 season officially came to end when the team utilized its designation to return elsewhere. It's difficult to imagine his best days aren't well behind him, but we'll see where he lands next year.

Cardinals | Season over for Chris Johnson

Wed, 23 Nov 2016 20:13:01 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson (groin) will not come off the Reserve/Injured list and his season is now over.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson's time in Arizona might now be over, too, as David Johnson has emerged as a star and the team still has Andre Ellington.

Cardinals | Chris Johnson eligible to return

Tue, 15 Nov 2016 20:09:42 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson (groin) is eligible to return to practice this week, as is S Tyvon Branch (hernia). Both are on the Reserve/Injured list and only one can be designated to return. Head coach Bruce Arians said the decision had not been made, and he also mentioned LB Alani Fua (knee) as a possibility.

Fantasy Tip: Arians said the decision would come down to health vs depth, so we'll see who they identify of the three. If it is Johnson, he'd slot in behind David Johnson, one of the NFL's top offensive performers this season, so his value would likely be minimal outside of a handcuff.

Cardinals | Chris Johnson ahead of schedule

Wed, 26 Oct 2016 20:15:04 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson (groin) said Wednesday, Oct. 26, that he is ahead of schedule in his rehab from a groin injury. However, he is uncertain if Johnson or SS Tyvon Branch (hernia) will be the player who returns from the Reserve/Injured Designated to Return list.

Fantasy Tip: CJ2K might be back at some point, but fantasy owners would only want to use him if David Johnson goes down with a long-term injury and Chris Johnson can prove his health in a full game without any setbacks.

Cardinals | Evan Mathis to have surgery

Mon, 10 Oct 2016 12:41:38 -0700

Arizona Cardinals OG Evan Mathis (ankle) will have surgery on his ankle, according to head coach Bruce Arians. Arians does not expect Mathis to return in six weeks, which could mean either RB Chris Johnson (groin) or SS Tyvon Branch (hernia) could return from the Reserve/Injured list.

Cardinals | Chris Johnson undergoes hernia surgery

Sat, 08 Oct 2016 21:10:12 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson (groin) underwent hernia surgery Thursday, Oct. 6, and subsequently indicated he'd be back "in a few weeks." He's currently on IR and is ineligible to return before Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: While Johnson could be activated later this season, he's one of several key contributors for the Cardinals to hit IR so there's no guarantee he'll be the one they bring back. He's not worth keeping on roster.

Cardinals | Chris Johnson to IR

Wed, 05 Oct 2016 09:44:14 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson (groin) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Oct. 5. He will be out a minimum of eight weeks.

Fantasy Tip: CJ2K had a limited role, but he rushed 25 times for 95 yards and a touchdown before succumbing to a hernia. Andre Ellington will have a slightly larger role behind David Johnson. Ellington is an RB5 worth handcuffing to Johnson.

Cardinals | Chris Johnson to have surgery

Tue, 04 Oct 2016 13:42:09 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson (hernia) will undergo surgery on a sports hernia. His time frame is yet to be determined.

Fantasy Tip: It's probably safe to drop Johnson now, even though he could return late in the season. Andre Ellington should be given a look on the waiver wire in deeper leagues, but David Johnson will continue to be the workhorse running back in Arizona and is a weekly RB1.

Cardinals | Chris Johnson placed on IR

Tue, 04 Oct 2016 11:29:17 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson (groin) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Oct. 4.

Fantasy Tip: The extent of Johnson's injury still hasn't been disclosed, but it must be pretty severe. David Johnson will continue to be the featured back for Arizona, while Andre Ellington should now serve as Johnson's backup. Johnson owners can do worse than picking up Ellington as a handcuff if the roster allows it, but mainly in deeper leagues.

Cardinals | Chris Johnson not at practice Monday

Mon, 03 Oct 2016 12:53:46 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson (groin) did not participate in the part of practice open to the media Monday, Oct. 3.

Fantasy Tip: It puts his status for Thursday's game against the San Francisco 49ers in some doubt. At the moment, however, the only fantasy relevance this injury has is that Andre Ellington is shaping up to be David Johnson's handcuff for that game.
