Tennessee Titan running back Chris Johnson

Johnson once gain started out the year about as poorly as a RB could perform, but once the bye week came, we’ve started to see glimpses of the CJ2K of old:

Even his worst rushing performance (Week 10 vs Jags) saw him catch five passes for 43 yards and put up a descent game. His numbers certainly don’t jump off the stat sheet, but if you used a high draft pick on him, then he’s probably still one of the best backs on your roster.

This week at Denver will likely see him put up close to 100 all-purpose yards and one score. The Broncos have allowed 100.2 ypg and a rushing TD in 10 of their 12 games.

Don’t count on Johnson to carry your team this week, but he’s not going to hurt it either, and at this point, he’s a safe as a 10-15 point player as you’re going to find.
