Fri, 28 Nov 2014 14:04:37 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson shared carries with Chris Ivory last week but could see his role decrease if Bilal Powell is able to play. Johnson probably is not a good option for owners this week on FantasyScore.

Jets | Chris Johnson to work on third downs

Mon, 24 Nov 2014 14:39:21 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson will receive work on third downs, because RB Bilal Powell (illness) has been declared inactive for Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson could be more involved in the passing game since he will be on the field on third downs, but owners should not expect big numbers from Johnson. Johnson will be facing a tough Buffalo Bills defense.

Jets | Chris Ivory, Chris Johnson probable

Sat, 22 Nov 2014 18:17:41 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (shoulder) and Chris Johnson (knee) are both listed as probable for the team's Week 12 game Monday, Nov. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Neither Ivory ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) nor Johnson ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) is a great play at FantasyScore against a solid Buffalo run defense, but if you have to play one of them, Ivory is the preferred option.

Jets | Chris Ivory, Chris Johnson practice fully

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 13:22:33 -0800

New York Jets RBs Chris Ivory (shoulder) and Chris Johnson (knee) both practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Nov. 20.

Fantasy Tip: The Buffalo Bills have been pretty stout against the run for much of the year, minus the last four weeks, when they've allowed four rushing TDs. Ivory ($4,300) could put up nice numbers at the end of the day, while Johnson ($3,400) is more of a risk.

Jets | Chris Johnson a full go

Wed, 19 Nov 2014 13:19:08 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (knee) practiced in full Wednesday, Nov. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson was starting to be more involved in the offense before the team's bye. That could continue, but the Buffalo Bills pose a stiff matchup for Johnson and the Jets' backfield, making him a weak FantasySccore investment at $3,400.

Jets | Chris Johnson hopes role increases

Fri, 07 Nov 2014 14:56:47 -0800

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson hopes to see his role continue to increase after more than 100 combined yards in Week 9 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said the team likes to pair Johnson and RB Chris Ivory in a rotation depending on the game situations. "I think it's important for any running back to be able to get carries early and get consistent carries," Johnson said. "I don't think there's any running back out there that can get a couple carries and really be successful without being able to get in a rhythm."

Fantasy Tip: It was nice to see Johnson more involved in Week 9, but it's anyone's guess as to whether the Jets will give him an opportunity to repeat that performance against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The matchup is nice, making Johnson ($3,400) at least semi-intriguing at FantasyScore as a cheap flex option.
