Jets | Sign Chris Johnson

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 12:29:09 -0700

The New York Jets signed RB Chris Johnson (Titans) to a two-year deal Wednesday, April 16. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson has lost a lot in recent seasons, and he's, at best, a weak RB3 for your fantasy squad. Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell will spell Johnson frequently, and Ivory figures to be the short-yardage, goal-line back. With Marty Mornhinweg as the offensive coordinator, Johnson could be used frequently out of the backfield as a pass catcher, making him more valuable in point-per-reception leagues.

NFL | Chris Johnson not working out for teams

Wed, 09 Apr 2014 19:20:05 -0700

Free-agent RB Chris Johnson (Titans) will not be engaging in private tryouts for anyone, according to a league source. The thinking is that he has generated six years of game film, and he's a proven commodity.

Broncos | Not players for Chris Johnson

Wed, 09 Apr 2014 07:53:47 -0700

The Denver Post's Mike Klis speculates the Denver Broncos aren't a fit for free-agent RB Chris Johnson (Titans). Klis doesn't think Johnson will accept a No. 2 role, and Denver probably won't give him the money he'll demand.

Fantasy Tip: Denver is probably better off with Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman to try building for the long term, or finding a cheaper complement to Ball. Johnson may have to settle for tandem work, which wouldn't make him anything more than a matchup-fueled RB2 in 2014 fantasy leagues.

Titans | Chris Johnson to be released

Fri, 04 Apr 2014 09:02:02 -0700

The Tennessee Titans plan on releasing RB Chris Johnson Friday, April 4, according to sources. He averaged a career-worst 3.9 yards per carry in 2013 and didn't have a run longer than 30 yards. Johnson is scheduled to make $8 million in 2014.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson will latch on with a team somewhere, but he's unlikely to be a lead back. Expect him to sign to form a running back tandem wherever he goes. In his absence, the Titans have a backfield that consists of Shonn Greene and the versatile Dexter McCluster. Expect Tennessee to address their RB situation in the draft, as well.
