Strength of Schedule
Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the RB position. The best rating is +16 which gives the player the advantage against the defense and indicates an easy opponent, the worst rating is -16 which gives the defense the advantage and indicates a tough opponent.
Fantasy Analysis
Once considered the top running back in the game along with Adrian Peterson, Johnson has fallen off the fantasy map the last two years. He barely went over 1,000 yards in 2013 but averaged just 3.9 yards per carry. Last season with the Jets Johnson rushed for only 663 yards and scored just twice. Once feared as the ultimate big-play threat, he hasn't had a run over 47 yards in two years. Johnson is a speed back but going on 30-years-old in September, he doesn't have the same explosiveness. If Johnson signs with a team, it will be in a complementary role.

New York Jets Team Talk
No one has posted anything about the Jets in 2 years now. Its time for Jets fans to come back on board and show that we have something to say about our team. Lets see some new input about this upcoming 2014 draft. Personally I think we'll get ...
The Dolphins got rid of him for a reason. This guy has no idea how to put a game plan together and has no idea what to do in critical situations! Get Rid of Tony Sparano!...
Can the Jets really pull off getting Peyton? If they can, they shouldn't hesitate to bench or trade Sanchez....
Is this thing on? Hello... lol...
Jets exposed so sweet...

Draft Analysis
Round 6, Pick 9
He's on a team with a pretty good O-line, and not very good RB or WR's, Chris Johnson has a lot of upside. I don't think Vince Young is very good at making the quick reads downfield and getting the ball to his WR's, almost Vick-like. That could lead to a lot of short passes/dumpoffs to Johnson, especially without a TE to speak of. Lendale White will still get his share of carries, but i don't think Johnson can be any worse than White, so he should see his fair share of carries as well. No doubt Chris Johnson comes to the Titans and is instantly their best offensive weapon, and i can't see the Titans not trying to get the ball in his hand 15-18 times a game.
Lendale White is currently the starter. There aren't many other weapons on the offense, so teams may well key in on him ala Reggie Bush if the Titans WR's don't step up.
Draft Strategy
There were still five WR's on the board at this point that I liked, so I decided to wait until the 6th to grab one of those. I was tossing up between Fred Taylor and Chris Johnson with this pick. Having gone Edgerrin James in the last round (safe/boring pick), I decided to take a chance on a guy with a little more upside. Taylor may well start to give way to Jones-Drew this season, and at worse, Chris Johnson should be heavily involved in the Titans passing game, and a decent bye week substitute in this PPR league.

Round 4, Pick 1
High draft pick, seems to have confidence of coaching staff to contribute as a spot RB, consistent pass catcher and even some kick return. As a RB3 I view him as a high upside backup for me.
Rookie, has Lendale White ahead of him and Vince Young as his QB.
Draft Strategy
Looking for a 3rd Backup, Johnson gives me a spot starter for bye weeks and could be more if I needed him. Bit of a gamble but I want to have options at RB. (Contributed by: Budman)

Round 6, Pick 9
Johnson can absolutely burn up the turf. He has looked good in the preseason for the most part and Tennessee coaches have said they'll be looking to get him involved in just about every aspect of the game, lining him up at tailback and as a receiver. He's a threat to find a hole and break to the endzone every time he touches the ball.
He's a rookie currently sitting behind Lendale White on the depth chart. Not a ton of weapons around him, but Vince Young's ability to take off should help keep defenses honest and from cheating on the RB's. He dropped a couple of ball in his last game that should have been caught, so his hands may be questionable. There were "safer" RB's on the board still.
Draft Strategy
There were again some safer picks on the board, but this kid has looked too good to ignore. His upside is tremendous and so far has looked very impressive in his first two games of action. With Bush, McFadden and Selvin Young already on my roster, I thought I could use another RB with a high ceiling. There are still some nice WR's, TE's and QB's on the board while the RB crop is increasingly thin. (Contributed by: Stankweasels)
