Chris Johnson RB NYJ 14 Hrs
Johnson (knee) is listed as probable for Monday's game against the Bills.
The knee doesn't seem to be much of a concern, as Johnson was able to participate in full during the week, but his usage and production have been up and down all season and he now draws the Bills' ninth-ranked run defense. Johnson will likely continue to play second fiddle to Chris Ivory, and Michael Vick and Percy Harvin figure to continue seeing a fair number of carries as well.

Johnson was held to 23 yards on seven carries in Sunday's victory against Pittsburgh.
Johnson also had a 12-yard catch, while Chris Ivory was busier on the ground (14 carries, 52 yards). As usual, there wasn't much going on in the Jets offense, even in a victory. New York is at Buffalo next week.

Johnson collected 101 total yards (11-69 rushing, 2-32 receiving) in Sunday's loss at Kansas City.
Meanwhile, Chris Ivory was a non-factor, with just 22 yards on eight carries. Just when you think you're out on Johnson, he drags you back in. Nonetheless, it's hard to feel good about any New York running back against Pittsburgh in Week 10.

Johnson was scarcely used in Sunday's loss to Buffalo. He had three rushes for seven yards and two catches for 13 yards.
The Jets have made it clear that they want to feature Chris Ivory, and that resets Johnson's fantasy value to just about zero. Unless Ivory gets hurt, Johnson isn't of much use to fantasy owners.

Johnson gained 61 yards on 13 carries and 19 yards on two receptions in Thursday's 27-25 loss to the Patriots.
Meanwhile, Chris Ivory had a 21-107-1 rushing line and 4-19-0 receiving line, once again getting the lion's share of the touches. Johnson's 13 carries and 15 touches essentially represent his ceiling under the current arrangement, as the Jets recorded season-high marks in both carries (43) and offensive plays (80) Thursday night.

Johnson (ankle) had just three carries for nine yards in Sunday's loss to Denver.
Johnson also had a short catch and a bad drop, just to wrap up a forgettable game. The Jets realize Chris Ivory is their best back, and Johnson's usage seems to drop off every week. Forget him for Thursday's game at New England.

Johnson (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Broncos.
Johnson will play, but Chris Ivory is probably the top option in New York and the Broncos might be a tough match-up for the Jets running game.

Johnson had seven carries for 24 yards in Sunday's loss at San Diego.
He also had one catch (albeit for minus yardage) and lost a fumble. Chris Ivory (9-44 rushing) remains the primary back for the Jets. Denver is a tough draw for Week 6.

Johnson was used as a change-of-pace back in Sunday's loss to Detroit, collecting eight touches. Chris Ivory, meanwhile, handled the ball 19 times.
Johnson had a nifty 35-yard touchdown run late in the game, but his other seven chances didn't go anywhere (26 yards). Ivory looks like the player you want in this backfield. The Jets play the Chargers in Week 5.

Johnson (ankle) had 34 yards on 10 carries and no receptions on two targets in Monday's 27-19 loss to the Bears.
Johnson was once again outplayed by Chris Ivory, who had 10 carries for 44 yards and four receptions for 52 yards. The Jets may at some point consider altering the workload accordingly, but for now, we can still expect Johnson and Ivory to split the touches 50/50. Ivory's level of involvement through the air was a bit fluky, but Bilal Powell -- who was used in obvious passing situations -- also looms as a threat to catch a few balls. Next week brings the stingy Detroit run defense, representing one of the tougher matchups Ivory and Johnson will have this season.
