Cardinals | Chris Johnson ready for Super Bowl

Tue, 19 Jan 2016 14:51:00 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson (leg) will be ready to play if the Cardinals make it to the Super Bowl. Johnson said he feels explosive and that he could have played last weekend, but he is not eligible to return from the short-term Injured Reserve until next week.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson's eligibility is moot if the Cardinals aren't victorious versus the Carolina Panthers this weekend. If Arizona comes out on top, it gives them yet another weapon for the Super Bowl in addition to David Johnson in the backfield.

Cardinals | Chris Johnson resumes practicing

Tue, 12 Jan 2016 14:34:58 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson (leg) returned to practice Tuesday, Jan. 12. He is still on the short-term Reserve/Injured list and is not eligible to play until the Super Bowl.

Fantasy Tip: David Johnson ($7,900, 15.8% of cap) will remain Arizona's featured running back this weekend. He has been on a tear since Chris Johnson and Andre Ellington ($3,800, 7.6%) went down with injuries. Ellington should receive some touches, too, but he's second fiddle to David Johnson right now.

Cardinals | Chris Johnson put on IR

Tue, 01 Dec 2015 13:49:44 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson (leg) was placed on the short-term Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Dec. 1, and promoted RB Kerwynn Williams from the practice squad to the active roster in a corresponding move. CB Robert Nelson was also released. Free-agent SS D.J. Swearinger (Buccaneers) was signed to the practice squad and TE Brandon Bostick was released.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson will be out at least six weeks. He'd be eligible to return if Arizona advanced to the Super Bowl. You can forget about him in all fantasy formats for the rest of this year. David Johnson is an immediate add off the waiver wire, and he could start in Week 13 against the St. Louis Rams if Andre Ellington is out of action with turf toe.

Cardinals | Chris Johnson close to incentives

Tue, 01 Dec 2015 08:11:58 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson (leg) is 36 rushing yards away from earning a $250,000 bonus for 850 yards, according to a league source. Johnson had $1.13 million in incentives in his contract and has earned $280,000 of those alongside his $870,000 base salary.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson could be out the rest of the regular season, pending tests to confirm a broken tibia. David Johnson ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) figures to be the lead back this week with Andre Ellington (toe) also banged up. Johnson doesn't have the best matchup, with the St. Louis Rams to contend with, but he's a low-end RB2 option on FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Chris Johnson has fractured tibia

Mon, 30 Nov 2015 15:16:42 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson (leg) suffered a fractured tibia during the team's Week 12 game and will miss an extended period of time. The team is still waiting to receive a definite timetable for his return.

Fantasy Tip: David Johnson could become the starting running back if Johnson and Andre Ellington miss significant time. Owners should monitor the practice participation this week to see who will be available to play against the St. Louis Rams in Week 13. David Johnson could be a solid starting option in some leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson's status for Week 13 against the St. Louis Rams will hinge to the results of the MRI. Stay tuned through the week.

Cardinals | Chris Johnson goes to locker room

Sun, 29 Nov 2015 15:42:45 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson (knee) went to the locker room during the Week 12 game against the San Francisco 49ers due to a left knee injury. He is questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson is on the mend, and Andre Ellington checked out due to a foot issue, so rookie David Johnson will handle most of the touches down the stretch if neither can return.

Cardinals | Chris Johnson expected to play

Fri, 27 Nov 2015 15:41:29 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson (knee) practiced in full Friday, Nov. 27, and is probable against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) had a big game against San Fran earlier this year, and you should look to get him in your lineup somehow once again. The Niners give up the fourth-most PPR fantasy points (29.9) to running backs per week this year.
