Cowboys | Dallas still not interested in veterans

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 17:50:51 -0700

The Dallas Cowboys are still not interested in veteran RBs Chris Johnson and Ray Rice, following the release of RB Ryan Williams Tuesday, July 28. The Cowboys remain confident in RBs Joseph Randle, Darren McFadden and Lance Dunbar.

Fantasy Tip: While Randle and McFadden are thought to have separated themselves from Dunbar, neither one has an upper hand over the other at this point. This will be one of the most closely watched position battles all preseason.

Cowboys | Dallas in contact with Chris Johnson

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 06:43:10 -0700

Free-agent RB Chris Johnson (Jets) has been in contact with the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson wouldn't be a real good fit unless an injury happened in camp. Johnson could still be worth a final-round flyer in the right situation.

NFL | Chris Johnson ready to play again

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 13:12:17 -0700

Free-agent RB Chris Johnson (Jets) said he's feeling explosive, healthy and is ready to play again.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson has been linked to the Dallas Cowboys several times this offseason. He could very well draw interest from other teams, but nothing is imminent as of now. Stay tuned to Johnson's status throughout the training camp period.

NFL | Chris Johnson expects to receive interest

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 14:35:17 -0700

Free-agent RB Chris Johnson (Jets) said he expects to receive interest from teams once training camp begins. Johnson said he has been working out this season in preparation for the 2015 season.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson could be an option if a team loses a running back to an injury during camp. Johnson likely will not have a lot of value if he signs with a team since he probably will be a backup. Johnson could be a waiver wire option if he finds a solid role with a team.

NFL | Chris Johnson has bulked up

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 12:44:41 -0700

Free-agent RB Chris Johnson (Jets) said he's worked his way up to 200 pounds, which is right where he wants to be. Johnson had lost 20 pounds this offseason due to bed rest following a drive-by shooting he was injured in.

Cowboys | Chris Johnson could sign with Dallas

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 12:39:24 -0700

Free-agent RB Chris Johnson (Jets) might sign with the Dallas Cowboys either during training camp or the regular season, in the opinion of Jason La Canfora of cbssports.com.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson said a couple months ago that he would like to play for the Cowboys. Johnson obviously wouldn't be guaranteed to start with Darren McFadden, Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar also competing for touches. McFadden is infamous for his fragility, so Johnson could be a replacement for if/when McFadden is injured.

Cowboys | Chris Johnson wants to go to DAL

Tue, 05 May 2015 18:11:33 -0700

Free-agent RB Chris Johnson was recently stopped outside a Los Angeles restaurant by TMZ and was asked about the possibility of playing for the Dallas Cowboys. "I'd fit good in Dallas," Johnson said when asked if the Cowboys were a good option. "They need it. Yeah. That's what we're trying to do."

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear how much better Johnson would be than the combination of Darren McFadden, Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar at this point in his career, but he'd certainly be the highest profile member of the backfield if he does go to Dallas. Johnson did run for 663 yards on 4.3 yards per attempt last season, and could still have something to offer the right team. With the No. 1 offensive line in football, the Cowboys could very well be that team.

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.
