Cardinals | Chris Johnson expected to play

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 16:00:02 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson (hamstring) is expected to play in the final preseason game and should receive at least 10 to 12 carries, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson has missed the last two preseason games because of the injury but is on track to see playing time in the final preseason game. Johnson has a good chance to make the roster and could be part of a committee at running back. Johnson could be a late-round option in deeper leagues if he makes the roster.

Cardinals | Chris Johnson happy with new team

Thu, 20 Aug 2015 11:17:54 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson said he likes the idea of playing with QB Carson Palmer and all of the other weapons the team has on offense. Johnson likes that the team throws to their running backs and does not have any problems splitting time with RB Andre Ellington.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson may see limited work early in the season but may earn the starting job as the season goes on. Johnson could be a late-round option in leagues or a waiver wire option during the season if he is available.

Cardinals | Chris Johnson could still start

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 12:18:56 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson hasn't been ruled out as being the starting running back over RB Andre Ellington, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson does have the track record to compete with Ellington for starting running back. If Ellington stays healthy, though, it will be hard to envision Johnson beating out Ellington for the job. Pay attention to the Cardinals' running backs as the preseason goes on.

Cardinals | New Cardinals must earn spots

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 11:20:41 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson and TE Jermaine Gresham aren't guaranteed a roster spot, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Fantasy Tip: Gresham's main competition for the starting tight end job will probably be Darren Fells and Troy Niklas. Johnson will at least back up Andre Ellington, and could also back up rookie David Johnson. Of course, as Arians inferred, both must play well enough to earn their spots on the team. Until then, they are best left on waiver wires.
