Jets | Chris Johnson expected to be released

Fri, 16 Jan 2015 16:11:38 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson, who had just 663 rushing yards this year, is expected to be released this offseason. Johnson is due to make $4 million in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson was another big disappointment this season for those that took at chance on him as a sleeper running back. There's always hope that he can regain some steam with a new team in 2015, but the likelihood of that happening now is remote. Consider Johnson more of a bench player for fantasy football squads next season.

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (knee) fully practiced Friday, Dec. 26, and is probable for Week 17.

Jets | Chris Johnson fully practices

Thu, 25 Dec 2014 14:20:05 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (knee) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson had a season-high 105 rushing yards against the Miami Dolphins in Week 13, but still isn't a strong FantsyScore play this weekend. Johnson has only received 20 carries over the past two weeks, and he has only caught three passes in his last four games.

Jets | Chris Johnson takes part in practice

Wed, 24 Dec 2014 13:45:23 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Dec. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson has been receiving more carries over the last month and rushed for 105 yards the last time he played the Miami Dolphins. Johnson ($5,555) probably is not the best option for owners on FantasyScore since there are better options for owners to use.

Jets | Chris Johnson will play against Pats

Fri, 19 Dec 2014 14:28:08 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (knee) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 19, and is probable for Week 16 against the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($3,200) remains unimpressive at FantasyScore while being behind Chris Ivory in the backfield. Also, the matchup against the Patriots could feature plenty of passing from the Jets offense. Johnson is a deep flex play, at best, in daily games.

Jets | Chris Johnson a full participant

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 13:57:52 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (knee) participated fully in practice Thursday, Dec. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson has a terrible matchup and is still splitting carries with Chris Ivory. It's best to stay away from him on FantasyScore even at $3,200.

Jets | Chris Johnson fully practices

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 13:20:20 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (knee) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($3,200) still isn't worth a lineup spot while splitting carries with Chris Ivory, especially facing a New England Patriots defense that has allowed just five rushing touchdowns to running backs.

Jets | Chris Johnson probable

Fri, 12 Dec 2014 13:50:48 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (knee) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 12, and is probable for Week 15 against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($3,400) looks like a perfect sleeper selection on the surface at FantasyScore going against his old squad, who've been brutal against the run this year. However, remember that Chris Ivory ($4,300) is still in the lead in this backfield.

Jets | Chris Johnson a full go

Thu, 11 Dec 2014 13:50:59 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (knee) practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($3,400) is going against his old team in the Tennessee Titans this week. He's been looking better in recent weeks, but Chris Ivory ($4,300) remains in front of him for touches. Still, if there was a week to take a chance on him at FantasyScore as a cheap flex option, this might be the time to do it.
