Cardinals | Chris Johnson leads ARI rushing attack

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 15:15:16 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson ran 11 times for 44 yards Sunday, Sept. 17, in a 16-13 win over the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Tip: These numbers aren't impressive overall, but keep in mind Johnson was hastily re-signed once Arizona lost David Johnson for at least eight weeks. He needs time to grow back into the role, so keep an eye on Johnson's matchups and how he does before fully committing. Johnson will battle Kerwynn Williams for touches.

Cardinals | Chris Johnson expected to get work

Wed, 13 Sep 2017 20:53:29 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson is "expected to get carries" in the team's Week 2 game Sunday, Sept. 17, versus the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Tip: While he's not a recommended play for any format this weekend, considering he's third on the depth chart, Johnson is still someone worth watching considering how well he fared in his first go-around with the Cards. Remember, only two years ago in his first season in Arizona, Johnson had nearly 900 rushing yards in just 11 games before getting hurt, so he knows the system and could be capable of making an impact for fantasy clubs later on.

Cardinals | David Johnson officially goes to IR

Tue, 12 Sep 2017 13:50:19 -0700

Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) was officially placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Sept. 12. Free-agent RB Chris Johnson (Cardinals) was officially re-signed in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Even with Chris Johnson returning to the Cardinals, Kerwynn Williams is the running back to own with David Johnson on the shelf. Williams will split time with Andre Ellington and Johnson, but he took over duties for Johnson last week and should be one of the top waiver wire additions heading into Week 2. Chris Johnson is merely a speculative add in deeper leagues.

Cardinals | Chris Johnson returns to Arizona

Tue, 12 Sep 2017 10:11:02 -0700

Updating a previous report, free-agent RB Chris Johnson (Cardinals) agreed to terms with the Arizona Cardinals on Tuesday, Sept. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Considering Arizona kept Kerwynn Williams over him at final cuts, it's hard to see Johnson being fantasy-relevant in 2017. Expect Williams to lead a committee including Andre Ellington and Elijhaa Penny while David Johnson recovers from wrist surgery, which is expected to sideline him for two to three months.

Cardinals | Arizona intends to bring back Chris Johnson

Tue, 12 Sep 2017 09:03:57 -0700

Free-agent RB Chris Johnson (Cardinals) is expected to re-sign with the Arizona Cardinals following the news that David Johnson will miss two to three months to recover from wrist surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Unlike the previous two seasons, Chris Johnson will not assured of a role if/when he signs, as Kerwynn Williams will most likely start and form some kind of committee with Andre Ellington and likely Elijhaa Penny. At least for now, Williams is probably the only one worth fantasy consideration, and he'll likely be a low-end flex at best.
