Chris Johnson still plenty risky
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(12/11/14) If you haven't checked out Start 'Em and Sit 'Em for this week, you should. You always should. Jamey Eisenberg offers the most helpful and complete start/sit advice there, and he's not afraid to go out on a limb.
For Week 15, he's advising Jets running back Chris Johnson at Tennessee. And certainly, there's some logic to it. I don't know that I buy the whole "revenge" angle because I think the game plan and supporting cast has just as much, if not more, to do with Johnson's performance than Johnson himself, but the game plan and supporting cast may work in his favor this week. He has seen an increase in carries lately, actually getting one more than backfield mate Chris Ivory the last two weeks, and the Titans are dreadful against the run, ranking dead last in the NFL. They're also allowing the second-most Fantasy points per game to running backs.
Still, Johnson is a platoon back for one of the league's worst offenses -- an offense that has averaged 14.0 points in its last five games. Johnson has scored only two touchdowns all season, and the last one came Week 4 against Detroit. He'll need big yardage to measure up in Fantasy, and there are no assurances of that.
It doesn't mean you can't start him, but only if you're in a pinch. I wouldn't get cute and play him over Alfred Morris, Rashad Jennings or Jeremy Hill, as Jamey's rankings suggest.
|As a first- or second-round pick, Chris Johnson has been a disappointment in recent years even though he posted at least 1,400 total yards in six straight seasons. But what if Johnson was a fifth-round pick? Would he be a disappointment then? If you think he would be then drafting Johnson shouldn't be in your future. But if you think a back with 1,400-yard, six-score potential is worth a pick, say, 50th overall, then consider the newest member of the Jets backfield. Johnson is talking like he wants to prove to everyone in football that he can still play at a high level, and it's been noted that he gutted out last season with a torn meniscus. We've noticed that Johnson's effort varies from week to week and his numbers typically followed suit. He's not the same guy from 2009. But we've also noticed that he's been a notorious slow starter, averaging less than seven Fantasy points per game over the first six matchups of his past three seasons before averaging over 12 Fantasy points per in his final 10 games year after year. If he keeps pace with that, the move isn't to draft him but to trade for him in October. But if you can't do that and you need either a low-end No. 2 Fantasy rusher or a quality Flex option, then Johnson should be considered in that Round 5 range.
