Summary

Former Titans running back Chris Johnson has definitely lost a step or two over the last few years. You can point to some questionable offensive line play in Tennessee as well as an injury which he's still recovering from (and which required surgery that will have him missing OTAs per ESPN New York's Kieran Darcy) but he's absolutely lost a step. He won't have to carry the load--he will share time with Chris Ivory. That should make him a value as a low-end RB2 or a high-end RB3. He'll get plenty of carries and accumulate yards but not enough of those (or enough touchdowns) to elevate into the top of the RB2 ranks. (June 18)

Jets | Chris Johnson feeling good (Tue Jul 29, 06:33 PM) - New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (knee) said he feels good now that he's been able to move laterally in practice.

Our View: The Jets are going to give Johnson some time off during camp. There's no need to have the veteran out there every day grinding. This move (in addition to using Chris Ivory as a change of pace) could help keep Johnson fresh in 2014.

Jets | Chris Johnson a full participant (Sun Jul 27, 09:43 PM) - New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (knee) fully participated in practice Sunday, July 27. It appears Johnson will be limited or get the day off every third practice.

Our View: Not a big deal here. There are many veterans who get some time off during training camp. Johnson will be the lead back for the Jets this year if healthy. His current ADP is RB26 (5.08) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Jets | Chris Johnson sits (Sat Jul 26, 03:05 PM) - New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (knee) was not a part of team drills Saturday, July 26.

Our View: This happens with veterans sometimes. Johnson is one of those guys who may get a day off here and there during training camp. The team wants him near full strength at the start of the regular season.

Jets | Chris Ivory returns (Fri Jul 25, 10:05 AM) - New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) returned to practice Friday, July 25.

Our View: We'll see how long this lasts as Ivory's hamstring is more of an issue than Achilles' tendon was during the siege of Troy. In case that's too high-falutin' for you it means it's not good. Even if Ivory looks great in camp, his constant nagging injuries and the presence of Chris Johnson make him no more than an RB4 for fantasy owners.

Jets | Chris Johnson moving around (Fri Jul 25, 08:48 AM) - New York Jets RB Chris Johnson was put in motion and flexed out wide a lot in practice Thursday, July 24.

Our View: Johnson could have a very good year, especially with the early reminder that Chris Ivory is a walking injury report (thanks hamstring!). We have CJ?K as a high end RB3 right now, but he has some upside, especially if Ivory is continually banged up.
