Knee could limit Chris Johnson's offseason work
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

New Jets running back Chris Johnson could be limited with his offseason work, reports ESPN.

Johnson had arthroscopic surgery this offseason for a torn meniscus and has some arthritis in his right knee. He passed the team physical when he signed with the Jets, but coach Rex Ryan said Monday that Johnson will be among several players limited in the offseason program.

When he does get on the field, several of his teammates are excited to see what he can do.

"The first thing that comes to mind is speed and home-run hitter," quarterback Geno Smith said. "I don't know how many times he's broken runs for 50, 60 yards, but it seems like he does almost every week. He brings another explosive dimension into our running-back room."

Mike Goodson still out for a while
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Jets coach Rex Ryan said Monday he hopes to have running back Mike Goodson this season, but his roster spot is in jeopardy with Chris Johnson now in New York, reports ESPN.

Goodson is coming off a torn ACL last year, and he's dealing with pending legal charges (and a possible suspension) stemming from his arrest last May. He is not expected to participate in offseason workouts.

"If Goodson comes back, we'll see what he can provide," said Ryan, adding: "I don't anticipate anything in the near future that he'll be able to do, but we'll see how he progresses."

Nothing promised to Chris Johnson
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Jets coach Rex Ryan said Monday that new running back Chris Johnson isn't coming into the season with any guarantees about his workload, reports the New York Daily News.

"Nothing was ever promised (like), 'You're going to get X amount of carries,'" Ryan said. "No role determined for really anyone."

Johnson is expected to split playing time with Chris Ivory this season.

Chris Johnson says Jets will have QB competition
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Newly signed running back Chris Johnson said last week that there will be a competition for the Jets' starting quarterback job between Michael Vick and Geno Smith in training camp this summer. According to Johnson, the battle will begin on even ground. 

"They didn't give me no indication," Johnson said when asked by ESPN Radio who had the inside track. "They said those two will battle it out in camp and may the best man win."

Vick is in his first season with the Jets after bottoming out with the Eagles last year. Smith is entering his second NFL season after starting 16 games for the Jets last year, throwing 12 touchdowns and 21 interceptions.

Can Chris Johnson turn into Tomlinson?
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Jets are hoping running back Chris Johnson can do for them what LaDainian Tomlinson did in 2010, reports ESPN.

That season, Tomlinson came from San Diego to New York after he was released. He responded with a team-high 914 yards with six touchdowns on 219 carries and caught 52 passes. He was supposed to be Shonn Greene's backup, but Tomlinson was so impressive that he won the starting job and became an integral part of a team that came within one game of the Super Bowl.

Maybe Johnson, who was let go by the Titans, can do the same thing.

"I can turn the bad things people are saying into a good thing for me, to give me motivation, to keep me hungry and to keep a chip on my shoulder and prove the naysayers wrong," he said Thursday.

Johnson had a disappointing year in 2013 when he averaged just 3.9 yards per carry, but he played 13 games on a torn meniscus and was running behind a suspect offensive line for a team that didn't have its starting quarterback for half the season. The situation in New York should be improved, and hopefully being teamed with Chris Ivory will allow him to play like Tomlinson did in 2010.
