Summary

Running Back Rank: #19All Players: #37
Johnson had another up and down season as the lead back for the Titans. He did top 1,000-rushing yards, though, and scored 10 touchdowns. But his 3.9 yards per carry was the lowest total of his career. He still wasn't consistent, which has been his issues the last few seasons. Johnson had just two 100-yard games and seven games with fewer than 50-rushing yards. The good news is he has topped 1,000-rushing yards every season in the NFL. He turns 29 before the start of the season, though, and seems to have lost a bit of his explosion. He didn't make as many big plays last season. Johnson also has nearly 1,800 carries under his belt. He heads to the Jets this season and might be in more of a timeshare with his play in recent seasons, which probably won't be a bad thing for him. Johnson still has plus speed and great moves in the open field. He also runs with a little power for a back of his size. Johnson also is a very good receiver, catching at least 36 passes each of his first six seasons in the league. But as mentioned, he has lacked consistency the last few seasons, not playing near the level of early in his career.
FANTASY OUTLOOK
Fantasy owners might be a little too down on him. His production hasn't been awful the last few years but inconsistent, causing for some disgruntled owners. But with that said, he might have a hard time hitting the 1,000-yard rushing mark once again. He should get around 1,100 total yards and eight or so touchdowns, making him a No. 2 back for fantasy teams. Don't consider him the elite fantasy back of earlier in his career, especially with his move to New York. The Jets' offense isn't very exciting.

comments about Chris Johnson

Notes

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson said Tuesday, July 1, that he's confident he'll be the team's lead back this year and won't be too involved in a timeshare with RBs Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell. 'Once the season starts and once we're playing and I'm doing my thing, I'm pretty sure if I'm making plays they're going to want to keep handing the ball off to me,' Johnson said. 'If they want me to continue making plays, I'm pretty sure I can't do that if I'm on the sideline.' Johnson said he's 'pretty much cleared' by Dr. James Andrews after coming off offseason knee surgery, and he said he's close to 100 percent health.

New York Jets running backs coach Anthony Lynn said the team plans to limit RB Chris Johnson's touches to keep him fresh. 'He's got some miles on him,' Lynn said. 'So we're going to have to be strategic in how we use him, and when we use him, to keep him fresh so that he can be the explosive guy that I know that he can be.' Johnson will be in a committee with Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell.
Fantasy Impact: It makes sense but we still expect Johnson to get plenty of touches in this offense.

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson is excited to run behind a veteran offensive line, and believes he can be a 2,000-yard back in 2014. 'I don't feel like I'm getting older or I lost a step. I still feel good. I still feel explosive, I just know the type of player I am, I'd never sell myself short, Johnson said, Wednesday, June 18.

Updating a previous report, New York Jets running backs coach Anthony Lynn essentially said the team plans to let RB Chris Johnson run the ball as much as possible. 'He's definitely going to get the ball,' Lynn said. 'So, it's what he does with the ball? He can have as many yards as he wants.'

If New York Jets RB Chris Johnson can prove he's still an explosive, dynamic and productive running back, he could be in line for most of the workload, according to a source. The New York Jets' distribution of backfield touches hasn't been panned out, however. Though, running backs coach Anthony Lynn said Johnson is 'definitely going to get the ball' and has plenty left in the tank.

The New York Jets are taking it slow with RB Chris Johnson. Head coach Rex Ryan said he doesn't expect much from him during minicamp.

The New York Jets are not likely to cut back on the wild cat or read-option in 2014, in the opinion of Rich Cimini of ESPN New York. The team could use more of those formations to maximize the speed of RB Chris Johnson.

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson's (knee) primary focus right now is getting healthy. He is not worrying about touches, but he is looking forward to game planning that will give him opportunities in space. Johnson is focusing on becoming a more patient runner, as opposed to trying to break a big run every play.

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (knee) expects to be held out of OTAs until he is 100 percent healthy. Currently, Johnson is rehabbing and this week started straight-ahead running.
