Summary

Running Back Rank: #14All Players: #26
Johnson had another season all over the place. The good news was he topped the 1,000-yard rushing mark and had nearly 1,500 total yards. He had five 100-yard games and five games with fewer than 30-rushing yards. Johnson continues to battle consistency issues the last few seasons. He remains a big-play threat every time he touches the ball but struggles some because of this. Instead of taking the yards given to him, he tries to hit the home run too much and gains next to nothing many times when trying that. He remains the starter in Tennessee, though, and should continue to get the bulk of the carries. Johnson has hit the 1,000-yard mark every season in the NFL. He averages 1,709 total yards and 10 touchdowns per season. Johnson has explosive 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 five 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 is scary for fantasy teams because he is so boom or bust. It is tough to take him since you are going to have to use such a high pick on him. But he will get his yards and scores in the end. We consider him a low-end No. 1 back. He isn't in that elite category anymore. Look for a season with around 1,500 total yards and eight touchdowns.
