Summary

Running Back Rank: #56All Players: #128
Johnson had another up and down season as the lead back for the Titans. He did top 1,000-rushing yards, though, and scored 10 touchdowns. But his 3.9 yards per carry was the lowest total of his career. He still wasn't consistent, which has been his issues the last few seasons. Johnson had just two 100-yard games and seven games with fewer than 50-rushing yards. The good news is he has topped 1,000-rushing yards every season in the NFL. He turns 29 before the start of the season, though, and seems to have lost a bit of his explosion. He didn't make as many big plays last season. Johnson also has nearly 1,800 carries under his belt. He heads to the Jets this season and might be in more of a timeshare with his play in recent seasons, which probably won't be a bad thing for him. 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 36 passes each of his first six 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
Fantasy owners might be a little too down on him. His production hasn't been awful the last few years but inconsistent, causing for some disgruntled owners. But with that said, he might have a hard time hitting the 1,000-yard rushing mark once again. He should get around 1,100 total yards and eight or so touchdowns, making him a No. 2 back for fantasy teams. Don't consider him the elite fantasy back of earlier in his career, especially with his move to New York. The Jets' offense isn't very exciting.
