Rant My Life: Hope For Tennessee Titans RB Chris Johnson After All
Over the first three weeks of the regular season, no player was more frustrating from a fantasy football perspective than Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson. For a player that became the sixth player in NFL history to break the 2,000-yard rushing mark a few years ago, Johnson was nothing but a disappointment after rushing for just 45 yards over the first three games.
However, Johnson has given fantasy owners a second hope over the last couple of weeks–especially after his performance against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.
Johnson came up big for the Titans in Week 7 afte finishing with 195 rushing yards to go along with two touchdowns as Tennessee went on to win the game 35-34. With the win, the Titans are 3-4 on the year and appear to have what it takes to at least make a run at a Wild Card spot–assuming the 6-1 Houston Texans go on to win the division.
Of course, whether or not this happens will rely heavily on how well Johnson performs for the rest of the season. There’s no question Johnson is talented enough to be one of the league’s top running backs and Sunday’s game was hopefully a positive outlook that he’s finally ready to turn things around–which could mean big things for fantasy owners.
There was a reason why fantasy owners were willing to take Johnson in the first or second round of their drafts and he’ll certainly be a player to keep an eye on for the remainder of the season.
