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.

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.

Football 'fun again' for new Jets running back Chris Johnson
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Just months removed from a frustrating offseason in which he was released by Tennessee after the team found no trade partners, Jets new running back Chris Johnson is claiming to be enjoying the game again.

Johnson is not officially the featured back, though he will likely receive more reps than backfield mates Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell. More will be known about the distribution of carries when the team opens against visiting Oakland on Sunday. All three are listed as first teamers on the depth chart. But Johnson is having fun.

"It just feels great to be back out there playing on Sundays," he told the New York Post. "It's fun again."

With Ivory and Powell earning playing time, Johnson will likely not approach the average of 17 carries per game given to him last year with Tennessee.

Chris Johnson, Chris Ivory in midseason form vs. Giants
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Jets running backs Chris Johnson and Chris Ivory both looked sharp Friday night against the Giants in exhibition play.

He played into the first series of the third quarter with the backups and racked up 77 yards of total offense. He took nine handoffs for 42 yards, averaging 4.7 yards per attempt. He caught both of his targets for 35 yards.

Ivory returned to action and made his presence felt as well. He ripped an 18-yard run and finished the game with a team-high 50 yards on six carries while being limited to one half of work. He caught one pass for 23 yards.
