RB Gartrell Johnson - Free Agent
|5-10, 219||Born: 6-21-1986||College: Colorado State||Drafted: Round 4, pick|
2009 Week 3 vs TB (6 / 23 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
It was garbage time, but Johnson ran with a terrific initial burst, and he delivered the blow at the end of one run in classic power back fashion. Johnson had his best run of the day called back by penalty, and also dropped a pass, but he showed the approach and efficiency to make one believe that he would be a fine fantasy option behind this offensive line if he moves up the depth chart due to injury.
2009 Week 5 vs OAK (5 / 16 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Johnson got mop-up duty. It wasn't pretty at first, as he ran into David Carr on his initial carry and fumbled. Eventually he did get going with sharp cuts and irresistable leg drive that took a few Raiders for a ride in the fourth quarter.
2009 Week 15 vs WAS (2 / 4 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
The rookie saw some mop up duty late in the Giants blowout win vs. the Redskins. He danced a little too much behind the line but still gained 4 yards on his 2 carries.
