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 impressing (Fri Aug 22, 02:42 PM) - New York Jets RB Chris Johnson is impressing the defense he practices against every day. Oh yeah, he still has it, linebacker David Harris said. We noticed it the first day when we were in Cortland. Hes still the fastest guy on the field. Hes still got a lot of juice in those legs.

Our View: That's nice and all, but we're still not overly confident about Johnson's upside this year. He will split time in the Jets backfield with Chris Ivory, and it could be Ivory that gets most of the goal line work. Johnson's current ADP is RB26 (6.01) in 12-team PPR leagues.

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.
