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)

Latest News

Jets | Chris Johnson has solid night (Sat Aug 16, 10:57 PM) - New York Jets RB Chris Johnson had 10 carries for 63 yards during the team's preseason game Saturday, Aug. 16.

Our View: Johnson will get a large number of touches in this run-first offense, committee or no committee. He should deliver low RB2 value on his sixth-round ADP. If he can still break the occasional long play or gain value from more Chris Ivory injuries, he might even be a strong pick there.

Jets | Chris Johnson receives off day (Mon Aug 11, 05:39 PM) - New York Jets RB Chris Johnson did not participate in practice Monday, Aug. 11, because he was given the day off.

Our View: Not a big deal here. The veteran will get some time off here and there.

Jets | Chris Johnson resting (Mon Aug 11, 11:01 AM) - New York Jets RB Chris Johnson is sitting out of practice to rest Monday, Aug. 11.

Our View: No big deal here. Johnson is getting a day off here and there through training camp.

Jets | Chris Johnson looked rusty (Fri Aug 8, 12:28 PM) - New York Jets RB Chris Johnson looked rusty in his debut with the team against the Indianapolis Colts Thursday, Aug. 7. RB Chris Ivory (rib) was injured in the game and RB Bilal Powell (hamstring) is still nursing an injury, so Johnson was the team's lone healthy back for this game. Johnson dropped a pass on a third down and lacked burst while running, rushing for just two yards and a touchdown on four carries.

Our View: Fortunately, the Jets will have some time to shake off the rust from Johnson. We'll see if he can start looking more like his old self as the preseason continues.

Jets | Three RBs will receive playing time (Wed Aug 6, 02:50 PM) - New York Jets RBs Chris Johnson, Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell will all receive playing time this season, and the team likely will use a running back-by-committee approach, according to head coach Rex Ryan. Ryan said there is a chance the team uses the hot hand during games.
