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
Jets likely to go with "hot hand" at RB
Johnson expects to start, but does not know exact role
By: Doug Orth | Thu Sep 4, 4:10 pm

New York Jets
Chris Johnson expects to start Sunday in the New York Jets' season opener, but he's not sure about his exact role -- i.e. how the carries will be divided among the running backs. Johnson might not be certain of the particulars, but he's confident in this: He won't be spending a lot of time on the bench. In six seasons with the Titans, Johnson averaged 18 carries per game. He probably won't reach that number, especially since he's coming off knee surgery. RB coach Anthony Lynn subscribes to the "hot hand" philosophy. (ESPN New York)

FFToday's Take: Johnson, Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell are all listed as starters on the depth chart, for what little that is worth. Johnson is a poor fit for Rex Ryan's preferred "Ground-and-Pound" attack while Ivory is, meaning Johnson could have more than his share of bad fantasy days. The ex-Titan shouldn't be considered anything more than a flex in all leagues until he assumes the lead role for sure, assuming that even happens.
