Found October 20, 2013 on Fantasy Football Champs:
Titans running back Chris Johnson only had nine carries for 39 yards on the ground Sunday against the 49ers but he added a 66-yard receiving touchdown and finished with 71 yards on four catches.Fantasy Spin:The Titans fell behind 24-0 and had to air it out. Johnson has been terrible running the ball this season, picking up a total of 366 yards and zero TDs on 115 carries (3.2 ypc). However, the team opposed some tough run defenses early this season -- it faced Pittsburgh, Houston, San Diego, the New York Jets, Kansas City, Seattle and San Francisco the first seven games -- and will now take on St. Louis, Jacksonville, Indianapolis twice and Oakland over the next five games. The time is now to buy low on Johnson, especially since Tennessee has a bye in Week 8.
