Jets RB Chris Johnson racks up 80 yards of total offense
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Jets running back Chris Johnson got back on track, matching a season high in carries (13) in a Week 7 defeat to the Patriots in Foxboro.

After rushing for only 9 yards the previous week against Denver, bounced back with 80 yards of total offense. He caught two passes -- both on the final drive -- for 19 yards and rushed for 61 yards on 13 carries, averaging 4.7 yards per attempt in a 27-25 defeat. He has cracked the 60-yard mark on the ground just twice through seven games. He has 261 rushing yards this season.

The Jets will take on the Bills at home in Week 8.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

A rather lengthy Jets injury report for their Thursday game against the Patriots is dominated by probables. The lone exceptions are wide receiver Greg Salas (wrist/ankle) and linebacker Trevor Reilly (knee), both of whom have been ruled out.

The probables are tight end Jace Amaro (knee), guard Willie Colon (knee), wideouts David Nelson (ankle) and Eric Decker (hamstring), tackle Breno Giacomini (back), defensive lineman Damon Harrison (ankle), running back Chris Johnson (ankle), center Nick Mangold (shoulder) and cornerback Darrin Walls (knee).

Chris Johnson wants Jets to stick with running game despite 1-5 start
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Jets running back Chris Johnson has had a pretty quiet October. He has totaled just 10 carries for 33 yards and two receptions for no gain in two games.

Though, it's not like Johnson has been a workhorse back all season. He has just 51 carries through six games. Despite Johnson's limited touches, the Jets still rank 12th in rushing offense (121.2 rushing yards per game) and Johnson hopes offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg will stick with the running game despite a 1-5 start.

"We’ve got to run the ball to put something out there," Johnson said, per NJ.com. "We haven’t been able to run the ball. It starts with opportunities. We’ve just got to stick with it. We can’t go away from it. We’ve just got to stick with it and it’ll come around.

"It’s frustrating, but I can only take advantage of the opportunities that I get. And there haven’t been many. That’s a battle that I can’t fight. I can only take advantage of the opportunities that I’m getting. I’ve just got to deal with it in that sense of mind."

Time to cut Chris Johnson ... or not
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

It looks bad -- Chris Johnson's 200 rush yards and 40 receiving yards through six weeks are nasty. No one thought he could have been as bad as he was last season through six games but he's done it -- Johnson had 327 rush yards and 96 receiving yards in 2013. 

Owners of CJ2k ... or is it CJ1k ... or CJ0k ... whatever it is ... they're probably about ready to cut him. And why not?! But there's one thing Johnson has done in each of his last three seasons and that's put up nice numbers in his last 10 or so games. He averaged around 7.0 Fantasy points per game in a standard league over his first six games on a per-year basis but came up with over 12.0 Fantasy points per game in his last 10. 

No one will buy into Chris Johnson unless you're dealing him for complete garbage. So maybe the answer is to hang on to him for a couple more weeks and see what happens and if he breaks out like he has the past three seasons. And if you see Johnson on waivers, pick him up and give him a stash for a couple of weeks. 

The Jets play the Patriots on a short week for Week 7 then take on the Bills, Chiefs and Steelers before a Week 11 bye, plus he takes on his old team in Week 15. There are a couple of good matchups in there for Johnson.
