This was the kind of week where why wouldn’t Chris Johnson have his best game of the season against the Houston Texans. And congratulations to the 65 percent of you who still started Johnson this week, kudos to you.
Just a quick thing before I head out to Cowboys practice (this is called, multitasking). So, I’m covering the Texans-Titans game this week on Sunday, and there are a lot of issues to hit (like this one). One, of course, revolves around the mysterious Titans’ running game. The focus has been on Tennessee’s second-leading rusher, which — unbelievably — is Chris Johnson. The fantasy stud and player formerly known as CJ2K has just 45 yards rushing. That’s 66th in the league. Yikes. What gives? He’s still fast. He’s still got skills. And he’s running behind a Titans offensive line that has allowed just two sacks of QB Jake Locker. What is the issue? Titans RB Coach Jim Skipper explained yesterday. […]

Week 3 is nearly in the books, how are you feeling? We still have a great Monday night game left, but let’s look back at the wek that was.
Is it time to abandon Chris Johnson and Darren McFadden?

Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson isn’t losing his starting job, so says head coach Mike Munchak. Marcas Grant writes that the fact that Munchak even had to mention that is an unpleasant reminder of Johnson’s 2011 season.

So let me see if I have this straight, Mike Shanahan said Alfred Morris was going to start for his team and then he went out and had the most carries of the weekend? Surprisingly, that’s not the biggest Washington Redskins’ story of the weekend.
Often, we get so caught up in this fantasy football world we live in that it’s easy to overlook that there’s so much more reality than fantasy. Last year, for instance, Tennessee Titans RB Chris Johnson held out, then struggled the entire season to hit his stride. Though he ended up with 1,047 yards and 4.0 yards per carry, he wasn’t himself. And he certainly wasn’t the standout back so many had counted on for their leagues. While he had four 100-yard games, he also had seven games in which he averaged fewer than 3.0 yards per rush. It’s easy to overlook how miserable all this made CJ, who has looked completely different this preseason. It’s why he couldn’t conceal […]

Maurice Jones-Drew stuck up for running backs, saying that they are still a dominant fantasy commodity. But, as Marcas Grant writes, things aren’t what they used to be with fantasy RB values.
Plenty of people are expecting Chris Johnson to bounce back in 2012. The reason why? Adding veteran guard Steve Hutchinson to the offensive line has a lot to do with it.
The Tennessee Titans are expected to pass the ball more in 2012, but that might be positive for the fantasy prospects of Chris Johnson.

Maurice Jones-Drew and the Jaguars are at odds over extending his contract. Could he suffer the same fate as another elite fantasy running back?

There could be some competition for Mark Sanchez in New York with reports that the team is considering adding Jason Campbell as a veteran backup. Will it inspire Sanchez to bigger things?
