2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
Chris Johnson, the artist formerly known as CJ2K, wore out his welcome in Tennessee and was unceremoniously shown the door this offseason. The New York Jets, an offense that was in serious need of adding some playmakers, quickly pounced on him and brought him into the fold. Johnson blamed last season's “struggles” on a torn meniscus that he suffered in Week 3 and played through for the remainder of the season. Despite the injury, he still put up 1,422 total yards and 10 touchdowns making him a top-10 fantasy running back in 2013. Reports indicate that his role with the Jets varies, ranging from a “change of pace back” to a “committee back” and a back who gets “all the carries he can handle.” The truth is likely that Johnson will lead all running backs in touches but Chris Ivory and even Bilal Powell will see significant touches as well to help keep him fresh. Johnson has at times lined up at receiver during training camp and his abilities in the passing game will exploited in offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinwig's west coast scheme. His knee is no longer considered a concern after offseason surgery. He has already participated in contact drills and was reported to look like the “Chris Johnson of old.” Fantasy owners need to remember, though, that he is now the old Chris Johnson, which is a very different thing. He's worth taking a chance on as your RB3, but given the talk of RBBC, he could see some down weeks if you have to start him on a regular basis.

News From The Past 90 Days
Chris Johnson eclipses 100-yard mark
Jets total 277 rushing yards but lose to Dolphins
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Dec 2, 8:33 am

New York Jets
It was the best game of Chris Johnson's first season with the Jets -- 105 yards rushing on 17 carries as part of a running game that totaled a whopping 277 yards. But when the Jets had to have points at the end of the game to overcome Miami's 16-13 lead Monday night at MetLife Stadium, Johnson wasn't on the field and quarterback Geno Smith suddenly found himself in desperation mode. As much as the Jets would like to believe the ground-and-pound approach they took against the Dolphins worked superbly, it underlined an NFL axiom that says teams have to run to win but they have to pass to score points. The running game was effective from the start, mixing in several wide receiver reverses with the running of Johnson, who broke a 47-yarder that set up a 20-yard touchdown by Greg Salas on a reverse for a 7-0 lead, and Chris Ivory, who had 62 yards on 16 carries. "The offensive line was pushing those guys around," Johnson said. "They were giving all the running backs, not just myself, lanes to run. But the main thing is that we didn't get the victory." (Newsday)

FFToday's Take: Johnson looked like the CJ2K of old as he slashed through the Miami defense, but the presence of Ivory and the lack of scoring ability seriously dampens his prospects down the stretch.It's better just to avoid all the Jets offensive players at this point.
