New York Jets RB Chris Johnson, who carried the ball just three times for seven yards in Week 8, said he's frustrated with his limited role in the offense. "This is the first time I've ever felt this type of frustration, but there's nothing I can really do about it right now," Johnson said. Johnson and offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg discussed the possibility of expanded his role two weeks ago, but that hasn't come to fruition. Head coach Rex Ryan insisted that Johnson isn't being phased out of the offense.
Fantasy Tip: Until we see the Jets involve Johnson more in the offense, it's not wise to go with him in your FantasyScore lineups.

Fantasy Tip: Smith should not be started in any leagues this week with Michael Vick now at the helm.

Fantasy Tip: Kerley's value figures to dwindle with Percy Harvin and Eric Decker being the team's top two wide receivers. It might be best to keep him on the bench this week, especially with a new quarterback in Michael Vick.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson still isn't worth starting in seasonal or daily leagues. He's been much too inconsistent coming off the bench.

Fantasy Tip: It will be Decker's first game with QB Michael Vick, so tread carefully. He's priced at $6,000 on FantasyScore if you want to take the risk.

Fantasy Tip: Kerley appears to be recovering from his illness and should be able to play in Week 9. Kerley costs $3,000 on FantasyScore but probably is not a great starting option.

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson said he is frustrated with his small role on offense as well as the team's struggles. "Of course I'm frustrated," Johnson said. "On top of having a limited role, not playing as much as I want to play and then on top of that we're 1-7. It's frustrating." Johnson received only 16 snaps in the team's Week 8 game. He rushed for seven yards on three carries and caught two passes for 13 yards.
Fantasy Tip: Johnson has not done a lot this season and has been part of a committee at running back. Johnson has a price of $3,400 on FantasyScore, but owners should be able to find a better option.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson has become an afterthought in this backfield; he had just three carries for seven yards and two catches in Week 8. He isn't even worth his cheap FantasyScore price of $3,400 (6.8% of cap).
Wed, 29 Oct 2014 13:58:44 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Decker was targeted a season-high 13 times in the Week 8 loss, but he only caught seven of those for 40 yards. The move to Michael Vick at QB should help Decker, as well as the presence of Percy Harvin. Decker costs $6,000 (12.% of cap) this weekend.

New York Jets CB Darrin Walls (calf, knee) didn't practice Wednesday, Oct. 29. OG Oday Aboushi (shoulder), OG Willie Colon (knee), LB David Harris (shoulder), LG Trevor Reilly (knee) and QB Geno Smith (shoulder) were limited, while CB Phillip Adams (groin), LB Antwan Barnes (knee), TE Jeff Cumberland (shoulder, finger), LB Demario Davis (finger), C Nick Mangold (shoulder) and WR Greg Salas (wrist, ankle) practiced in full.

Fantasy Tip: Kerley may be able to return to practice later in the week if he is able to recover from his illness. Kerley costs $3,000 on FantasyScore, but owners probably will be able to find better options.
Wed, 29 Oct 2014 10:11:59 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Smith has lost his starting job to Michael Vick and may not get another start for a while. Owners can consider dropping Smith in their leagues if they need the roster spot. Vick could be an option in deeper leagues but probably should not be an option on FantasyScore this week.
