Broncos | Jeremiah Johnson having strong camp

Wed, 31 Jul 2013 20:36:02 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Jeremiah Johnson is having a fantasy training camp, but he is competing at a very tough position, with the likes of RBs Ronnie Hillman, Montee Ball, Knowshon Moreno, FB Jacob Hester, Lance Ball and even C.J. Anderson ahead of him in the pecking order.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson's preseason performances might not be to make Denver's 53-man roster, but rather to crack a roster with another NFL club. For fantasy purposes, even if he is a preseason superstar, he has a while to go before he is fantasy relevant.

Texans | Jeremiah Johnson, Chris Henry to see time Thursday

Thu, 02 Sep 2010 10:15:27 -0700

Houston Texans RBIs Jeremiah Johnson and Chris J. Henry will have featured roles in the team's final preseason game Thursday, Sept. 2, according to HoustonTexans.com's Nick Scurfield. "Those two guys will have to step up and make this team this week," Kubiak said. "I know we've only got four (running backs), but that doesn't mean that's our four. So this is a big, big game for Jeremiah and for Chris as we head into the season." Johnson has moved up to third on the depth chart and led the team with five carries for 33 yards in the preseason opener. Henry only has four carries for eight yards this preseason, but has shown bursts of talent in practice. "Jeremiah has shown good run ability; needs to shore himself up in all the other phases of the game to go out there and work with Matt Schaub and those guys," Kubiak said. "Henry continues to do a few good things for Joe (Marciano)."
