Cardinals | Chris Johnson misses practice

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 13:16:01 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Aug. 26, but head coach Bruce Arians said he hopes Johnson will be able to practice later in the week.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson has not practiced much since joining the Cardinals but is considered day-to-day at this point. Johnson probably will be part of a committee at running back if he makes the team and could be a late-round option in deeper leagues.

Cardinals | Chris Johnson day-to-day

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 14:08:05 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson (hamstring) is considered day-to-day with a hamstring injury, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Fantasy Tip: Andre Ellington and David Johnson are still expected to be higher in the Cardinals' backfield pecking order. Chris Johnson will only hold value in deeper PPR leagues, or if Ellington or David Johnson are injured a while.

Cardinals | Chris Johnson dealing with injury

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 06:15:20 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson (hamstring) did not play in the second preseason game Saturday, Aug. 22, because of a pulled hamstring that could keep him out for two weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson was expected to be part of a committee at running back but could be on the roster bubble if he is not able to play. Johnson could be a late-round option in drafts if he makes the team since he has the most experience among the running backs.

Cardinals | Chris Johnson happy with new team

Thu, 20 Aug 2015 11:17:54 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson said he likes the idea of playing with QB Carson Palmer and all of the other weapons the team has on offense. Johnson likes that the team throws to their running backs and does not have any problems splitting time with RB Andre Ellington.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson may see limited work early in the season but may earn the starting job as the season goes on. Johnson could be a late-round option in leagues or a waiver wire option during the season if he is available.

Cardinals | Chris Johnson could still start

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 12:18:56 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson hasn't been ruled out as being the starting running back over RB Andre Ellington, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson does have the track record to compete with Ellington for starting running back. If Ellington stays healthy, though, it will be hard to envision Johnson beating out Ellington for the job. Pay attention to the Cardinals' running backs as the preseason goes on.

Cardinals | New Cardinals must earn spots

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 11:20:41 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson and TE Jermaine Gresham aren't guaranteed a roster spot, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Fantasy Tip: Gresham's main competition for the starting tight end job will probably be Darren Fells and Troy Niklas. Johnson will at least back up Andre Ellington, and could also back up rookie David Johnson. Of course, as Arians inferred, both must play well enough to earn their spots on the team. Until then, they are best left on waiver wires.

Cardinals | Chris Johnson's role unclear

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 11:16:21 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson's role will be determined by the rest of the preseason games, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Fantasy Tip: Of course, some of Johnson's role depends on how healthy Andre Ellington and David Johnson are going into the regular season. It is more than likely that Johnson will be a change of pace back for the Cardinals. He's not worth starting unless Ellington or Johnson miss extended time.

Cardinals | More on Chris Johnson terms

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 06:38:59 -0700

Updating previous reports, Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson signed a one-year, $870,000 deal for the veteran's minimum. The deal didn't include a signing bonus. He has to make the Pro Bowl and rush for 1,300 yards to make the potential $2 million in the deal.

Fantasy Tip: CJ2K is worth a RB5 flyer in what could be his last real chance at age 30.

Cardinals | Chris Johnson agrees to terms

Mon, 17 Aug 2015 15:11:44 -0700

Free-agent RB Chris Johnson (Jets) agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Arizona Cardinals Monday, Aug. 17. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson rushed for an effective 4.3 yards per carry last season, but he had the fewest attempts and yards of his career. Both Andre Ellington and rookie David Johnson have far more upside than Johnson, but owners will need to wait for the Cardinals to update their depth chart.
