Jets | Chris Johnson sits

Sat, 26 Jul 2014 12:05:54 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (knee) was not a part of team drills Saturday, July 26.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson will probably sit here and there throughout training camp as a precautionary measure for his surgically repaired knee. He's still the Jets' top running back option and should be drafted as a low-end RB2.

Jets | Chris Johnson moving around

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 05:48:28 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson was put in motion and flexed out wide a lot in practice Thursday, July 24.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson is a solid RB2, but it sounds like he'll receive a boost in PPR leagues with the team's willingness to get him involved in the passing game.

Jets | Chris Johnson feeling good

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 13:33:14 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (knee) said he feels good and didn't feel any pain after his first full-go since last season.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson has been one of the most consistent fantasy running backs over the past several years. His stock has declined since his move to New York, however, with RBs Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell also in the mix. He's still a solid RB2 candidate.

Browns | Chris Johnson supports Johnny Manziel

Sun, 06 Jul 2014 07:10:39 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson supported Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel, saying he should be his own man when it comes to off the field activities. "Be your own man," Johnson said. "Do what you got to do. It's the offseason. That's when you get time to do whatever you want to do and live your life. I'm pretty sure once the season gets here, he'll be all right. He's going to focus in on football. But this is the time now to where he'll be able to hang out and do some of the things you want to do. Because once the season gets here, you really have no life. It's just football and football."

Jets | Chris Johnson confident in role as lead back

Wed, 02 Jul 2014 10:04:37 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson said Tuesday, July 1, that he's confident he'll be the team's lead back this year and won't be too involved in a timeshare with RBs Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell. "Once the season starts and once we're playing and I'm doing my thing, I'm pretty sure if I'm making plays they're going to want to keep handing the ball off to me," Johnson said. "If they want me to continue making plays, I'm pretty sure I can't do that if I'm on the sideline." Johnson said he's "pretty much cleared" by Dr. James Andrews after coming off offseason knee surgery, and he said he's close to 100 percent health.

Fantasy Tip: After Johnson's disappointing 2013 season, it's hard to envision him ever returning to his glory days running the football. The Jets will surely look to keep him fresh, but there is room for improvement if he can prove he deserves lead-back touches; the Jets said they'll go with a hot hand if one stands out. For now, consider Johnson a risky RB3 with upside for a bit more.

Jets | To limit Chris Johnson

Thu, 26 Jun 2014 05:44:11 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson's touches will be limited to keep him fresh, according to Jets running backs coach Anthony Lynn. "He's got some miles on him," Lynn said. "So we're going to have to be strategic in how we use him, and when we use him, to keep him fresh so that he can be the explosive guy that I know that he can be." Johnson will be in a committee with Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell.

Fantasy Tip: That's quite a different stance than the one reported a couple weeks ago that they were going to give him the ball as much as possible. Johnson is a decent receiver and has more value in PPR leagues as a RB2. Ivory and Powell are depth fantasy backs that could figure in more in good matchups.
