Huddle Up: Outside of some QB scrambles, no one looked particularly well running the ball Thursday night for N.Y. as the Jets averaged only 2.7 yards per rush on 37 carries. And it's not like Johnson has been a recent model of consistency, either, looking sluggish for one game or one series and then busting off a 70-yard scoring run in the next.

Huddle Up: Fantasy owners already are wary with Johnson's ADP currently sitting around 75 (25th among RBs), but it could be headed even lower if we're seriously talking about a "hot-hand," 3-back committee. Wait and monitor the situation as long as you can this preseason before making any definitive draft-board decisions.

Huddle Up: Marty Mornhinweg is looking for ways to take advantage of CJ?K's speed, and there's no better way to do that than getting him the ball in space. Johnson has had success as a receiver, and in the Jets' West Coast system it's something he'll be expected to do more of this season.
Posted: 7/23/2014 10:01pm ET
Huddle Up: The key to Johnson's game is his speed, and if he hasn't lost it he has a shot at another 1,000-yard season with his new team.
Posted: 6/19/2014 2:11am ET
Huddle Up: If Johnson is healthy in time for camp he should have little difficulty moving into the top spot on the Jets' RB depth chart, but another 2K season seems overly optimistic.
Posted: 6/17/2014 2:07pm ET
Huddle Up: Johnson hasn't topped 279 rushes in any of the last 3 seasons after logging 358 and 316 carries, respectively, during his 2009-10 heydays with the Titans. We'll see if the switch to the run-heavy Jets changes things, or if Bilal Powell and/or Chris Ivory will cut into Johnson's workload.
Posted: 6/8/2014 5:29pm ET
Huddle Up: Johnson has landed in the right spot, at least in terms of opportunity, as Rex Ryan's Jets have logged the most rushing attempts (2,571) and third-most rushing yards (10,876) in the league over the past 5 seasons -- no matter what the scheme or formation.
Posted: 5/22/2014 10:41pm ET
Huddle Up: No huge deal as RBs typically can do without the extra work, but getting in a few extra preseason reps will grow more important later this summer as Johnson is joining a new offense.
Posted: 4/17/2014 10:32pm ET
Huddle Up: For now at least, ohnson also said he wouldn't mind sharing carries, and with Bilal Powell and Chris Ivory still on the Jets' roster, look for that to be the case.
Posted: 4/16/2014 6:53pm ET
Huddle Up: That's about as good a contract as Johnson could have hoped. He'll split the workload with Chris Ivory on the run-heavy Jets.
Posted: 4/16/2014 11:02am ET
Huddle Up: It'll be a step down for CJ$K money-wise, but an incentive-laden short-term deal with the run-heavy Jets might be his best option right now.

Huddle Up: Johnson, who will be hard-pressed to find a better fit, would bring the speed and playmaking ability the Jets need. He's never gained fewer than 1,422 yards from scrimmage in his 6 NFL seasons, while the Jets only have had one RB (Thomas Jones in 2008 & '09) reach that total over the past decade.
Posted: 4/15/2014 3:56pm ET
Huddle Up: Could the CJ2K sweepstakes come down to a pair of AFC East rivals with the Bills also rumored to be interested in the RB, who has averaged 1,661 yards from scrimmage in his 6 NFL seasons? The Jets would seem to be a better fit, but stay tuned . . .
Posted: 4/13/2014 4:22pm ET
Huddle Up: Yeah, a Lamar Miller-Daniel Thomas-Moreno-CJ2K backfield might get a little too crowded.
Posted: 4/10/2014 12:37am ET
Huddle Up: At this point it's tough to see CJ?K getting anything more than an incentive-laden one-year "show me" type of deal, so why not rest on his body of work?
Posted: 4/7/2014 11:11am ET
Huddle Up: Goodson has a ton of off-the-field baggage hanging over him, making him the likely cut if the Jets need to clear room for CJ?K.
Posted: 4/6/2014 3:36pm ET
Huddle Up: Nothing it seems is ever cut and dry with CJ2K -- even his pending release from the Titans. He'll officially be on the open market soon enough, but it remains to be seen how much interest he'll generate.
Posted: 4/4/2014 10:34am ET
Huddle Up: It's one of the worst-kept secrets in football that CJ?K will be released, and it looks like by the end of Friday he'll officially be free to start talking to other teams.
Posted: 4/3/2014 3:53pm ET
Huddle Up: There have been no takers with CJ2K's big salary, so it looks like he'll hit the open market.
Posted: 3/30/2014 10:56pm ET
Huddle Up: The Falcons made one 2013's biggest FA RB splashes in bringing Steven Jackson aboard, but it wouldn't make much sense -- financial or otherwise -- for them to dip into that pool for a second straight year.
Posted: 3/30/2014 2:27pm ET
Huddle Up: With the unproven likes of Bilal Powell and Chris Ivory currently atop their RB depth chart and the team lacking in overall offensive playmakers, the Jets could use a big-play back but like most every suitor at this stage, the price definitely has to be right.
Posted: 3/29/2014 3:46pm ET
Huddle Up: It's been building to this for a while, but it finally looks like CJ will be team-shopping in the not-too-distant future.
Posted: 3/19/2014 12:36pm ET
Huddle Up: CJ?K has said he'll reduce his salary, but not much. But any team willing to pay for him--and pay him--will be willing to give him the ball 20 times a game, and that's what Johnson needs to find fantasy success. All it takes is one home run out of those 20 carries and it's a good day for CJ?K and his fantasy owners.
Posted: 3/13/2014 10:40pm ET
Huddle Up: Johnson's salary is definitely a roadblock in today's lukewarm market for veteran RBs. See if a lower price tag is enough to sell a team on the back, who hasn't had fewer than 1,422 yards from scrimmage in any of his 6 seasons with the Titans.
Posted: 3/9/2014 3:37pm ET
Huddle Up: It appears Johnson's days in Nashville are limited one way or another as the Titans are exploring trade options or a even a flat-out release of the 6-year vet. In the meantime, the team is reportedly interested in free-agents Donald Brown and Ben Tate -- 2 familiar faces from the AFC South.
Posted: 2/23/2014 7:43pm ET
Huddle Up: Most signs remain pointing out of Nashville for the RB, who is entering his 7th pro season.
Posted: 2/4/2014 11:52pm ET
Huddle Up: Stay tuned as this is shaping up as one of the bigger fantasy personnel decisions of the offseason.
Posted: 1/27/2014 3:57pm ET
Huddle Up: Might be a ding to CJ?K's offseason price tag, though his playing through the injury speaks well for him. Plenty of reports suggest the Titans won't be bringing him back, but a four-to-six week recovery time frame should allow him to be healthy when potential free agent suitors start checking him out.
Posted: 1/15/2014 10:20am ET
Huddle Up: New Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt has plenty to sort through, not the least of which is the status of the team's most dynamic offensive player. Johnson is due $23 million over the next three seasons; he's indicated he won't rework his deal, and the Titans have more than hinted they may cut their losses on Johnson's contract. Should make for an interesting offseason in Nashville.
Posted: 1/14/2014 11:14pm ET
Huddle Up: Johnson is due $8 million next season on his contract, and one of Whisenhunt's first orders of business will be deciding what to do with the up-and-down RB, who already has said he'll want out if the team tries to reduce his workload or asks him to take a pay cut. Stay tuned ...
Posted: 1/8/2014 12:45pm ET
Huddle Up: Johnson likes a high volume of carries, something Tennessee's new coach may not necessarily agree with. The Titans also need to make a decision on Jake Locker, which means the new coach will have plenty to do once he lands the job.
Posted: 12/19/2013 4:37pm ET
Huddle Up: Nothing more than late-season maintenance so expect Johnson to be there if you need him Sunday.
Posted: 11/15/2013 12:18am ET
Huddle Up: Johnson doubled his season rushing-TD total Thursday night, but he still left his fantasy owners wanting more after being limited to 16 yards and no scores on 9 carries in the second half after positing a 8-70-2-TD line in the opening 30 minutes.
Posted: 10/30/2013 10:42pm ET
Huddle Up: Johnson hasn't gotten 20 carries in a game since Week 2 but apparently Tennessee is now going to run the football 40 times every week. It's one thing to say stuff like this but if the Titans go down early like they did against San Francisco, getting their running backs a certain number of carries won't be a priority.
