Summary

Running Back Rank: #63All Players: #204
Johnson didn't do a whole lot in his first season with the Jets. He did have a 100-yard rushing game but failed to top 70-rushing yards in any other game last season. Johnson had just over 800 total yards and two scores as he split the work at running back with the Jets. Last season broke a streak of six straight 1,000-yard seasons. Johnson turns 30 shortly after the start of the season, so his career is likely trending in a downward fashion. He is best suited as a backup. Johnson still has plus speed and great moves in the open field. He also runs with a little power for a back of his size. Johnson also is a very good receiver, catching at least 24 passes each of his first seven seasons in the league. But as mentioned, he has lacked consistency the last few seasons, not playing near the level of early in his career.
FANTASY OUTLOOK
Johnson isn't the same fantasy back as past seasons. He might have a good game or two this season but don't expect him to revert to past form. He might get around 700 total yards with a few scores, making him reserve material for fantasy teams.
