NFL | Chris Johnson not ready to step away

Fri, 02 Jun 2017 11:29:17 -0700

Free-agent RB Chris Johnson (Cardinals) wants to continue his career and has stayed in "close contact" with the Arizona Cardinals. Johnson also notes becoming the 30th player to reach 10,000 career rushing yards - a mark from which he is 463 yards shy of - is a motivating factor.

Fantasy Tip: Both goals seem realistic for Johnson. Entering into what would be his age-32 season, "CJ2K" still has enough juice to be a solid backup and the 100 to 120 carries he would need for 10,000 yards isn't a lot to ask in that role. Expect a deal with the Cardinals or some other team to get done around training camp, as there is little benefit for someone with Johnson's wear-and-tear to be going through OTAs and minicamps.

NFL | Chris Johnson confident he can still go

Tue, 28 Feb 2017 19:26:14 -0800

Free-agent RB Chris Johnson (Cardinals) said in an interview Tuesday, Feb. 28, that he can "definitely" still make plays and that he still has his speed.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson experienced some bad luck in his two years with the Cardinals, first falling just short of a 1,000-yard campaign in 2015 after fracturing his tibia with a handful of games remaining. Then this past season, he went down in Week 4 and required season-ending sports-hernia surgery. The 31-year-old should draw interest as a change-of-pace back, but his days of fantasy relevance are likely over.

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.
