Chris Johnson not a good Week 3 option
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

It should be a good matchup for Chris Johnson against the Bears, who have allowed a running back to score in each of the first two games with C.J. Spiller in Week 1 and Frank Gore in Week 2.

But Chicago hasn't exactly folded against the run like in 2013 (so far), and Johnson continues to share work with Chris Ivory, who has a better chance to score at the goal line.

In Week 2 at Green Bay, Johnson had 12 carries for 21 yards and one catch for no yards, while Ivory had 13 carries for 43 yards and a touchdown and one catch for 3 yards.

The Jets are also working in Bilal Powell on passing situations, and Johnson should have another down game. Ivory is the better Jets running back to trust when everyone is healthy.

For a complete list of Week 3 options, read my latest Start 'Em and Sit 'Em.

Jets running back Chris Johnson was limited in practice Thursday due to an ankle injury. However, coach Rex Ryan believes Johnson will be OK for Week 3 against the Bears.

Chris Johnson goes nowhere in Week 2 loss vs. Packers
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Jets running back Chris Johnson rushed for just 21 yards on 12 carries and gained no yards on one catch in his team's 31-24 loss to the Packers in Week 2.

Johnson had trouble early and finished the first half with just seven yards on six carries despite his team leading 21-3 at one point in the second quarter. It was a disappointing performance after the former Titan was able to gain 5.2 yards per carry in Week 1 against the Raiders. Johnson will hope to bounce back next Monday night when the Bears come to town.

Chris Ivory, Chris Johnson shine in Week 1
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Jets running back duo of Chris Johnson and Chris Ivory played at a high level Sunday in Week 1 against the Raiders in a 19-14 victory.

Johnson had 13 carries for 68 yards and five catches for 38 yards and a touchdown on five targets. And Ivory had 10 carries for 102 yards and a touchdown, which came on a 71-yard run.

The Jets play at Green Bay in Week 2.

Jets three-headed backfield precludes strong Fantasy option
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

They say if you have two quarterbacks vying for the starting spot, you actually have no starting quarterback. The same might be said about featured backs.

At least those seeking that title with the Jets. Though newly acquired Chris Johnson is coming off a sixth consecutive 1,000-yard season with Tennessee, but his 3.9 YPC average in 2013 was the worst of his career. Chris Ivory followed strong performances with weak ones throughout last season and Bilal Powell also proved inconsistent.

The trio combined to rush for 223 yards on 43 carries for a 5.2 average in the preseason, which prompted Rex Ryan to declare that the three will alternate in the regular season. Though Johnson is the most likely to emerge as the featured back, it seems clear that all will receive enough opportunities in the season opener Sunday against an improved Oakland defense to make none of them more than a second option in shallower leagues and flex in deeper ones.

Fantasy owners should monitor their reps to determine if any of them emerge as a featured back.
