Despite his lack of productivity on the field, Johnson...

NFL Week 15 Review: Fantasy Crib Notes

Chris Johnson’s lackluster outing against his former team was one of several fantasy disappointments this weekend (Photo: Frederick Breedon/Getty Images). When you’re tasked with assessing the relative value of some 400 players on a weekly basis, you make a lot of mistakes.

Chris Johnson Set to Explode Against Titans

When the Jets signed him in the offseason I was not foolish enough to expect him to come close to the numbers he put up during his...
