Johnson rushed once for one yard and caught two of four targets for 14 yards in Sunday's 33-18 loss to the Eagles.
EDGE Analysis
Johnson hasn't capitalized on the absence of Michael Carter (ankle), having been out-touched 32-9 by Tevin Coleman over the past two weeks. Coleman will likely receive the lion's share of playing time in New York's backfield against the stout Saints front in Week 14, leaving Johnson in a change-of-pace role once again.

Johnson rushed six times for 42 yards and failed to catch his only target in Sunday's 21-14 win over Houston.
EDGE Analysis
Johnson averaged an impressive 7.0 yards per carry but finished third on the team in attempts behind Tevin Coleman (16) and Austin Walter (nine). Walter was the only one of the three to score a touchdown, and it's apparent that Michael Carter's (ankle) absence won't translate to a leading role for Johnson. The lone ball thrown in Johnson's direction bounced off his back for an interception in the first quarter, so perhaps rookie quarterback Zach Wilson was loath to throw Johnson's way again.

Johnson and Tevin Coleman are both expected to fill larger roles out of the Jets backfield beginning with Sunday's game against the Texans after lead back Michael Carter (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Al Iannazzone of Newsday reports.
EDGE Analysis
Carter's injury isn't viewed as season-ending, and the Jets are seemingly optimistic that he'll be ready to play as soon as Week 15 against the Dolphins after he sits out the required three games following his placement on IR. In any case, Carter's short-term absence paves the way for Johnson to pick up more work after he played no more than 43 percent of the Jets' offensive snaps in any of his seven appearances since maxing out at a 57-percent snap share Week 3 in Denver. Expect him to fill more of a heightened change-of-pace role alongside Coleman, who's a better candidate to handle earlydown work. That being said, the Jets' tendency to play from behind in games could prove more favorable for Johnson than Coleman.

Johnson rushed once for five yards and caught his only target for eight yards in Sunday's 24-17 loss to the Dolphins.
EDGE Analysis
Johnson was largely phased out of the offense as Michael Carter played a three-down role for most of the game, but Carter exited late with an ankle injury. If Carter's not ready to return in Week 12 against the Texans, Johnson would likely return to the prominent pass-catching role he's played in recent weeks, having posted five-plus receptions in three of the past five games.

Johnson rushed twice for two yards and caught five of eight targets for 36 yards in Sunday's 45-17 loss to Buffalo.
EDGE Analysis
Johnson has become a consistent contributor in the Jets' passing attack, as he came into this game with a receiving touchdown in each of the previous two and now has at least five catches in three of the last four. Michael Carter remains the top option in New York's backfield, and the Jets welcomed Tevin Coleman back from a hamstring injury for this one, but Johnson's receiving ability makes him a player worth monitoring in fantasy, especially in PPR formats.

Johnson rushed four times for 21 yards and secured two of three targets for 40 yards and a touchdown in the Jets' 45-30 loss to the Colts on Thursday night. He also lost a fumble.
EDGE Analysis
Johnson logged nine fewer carries than backfield mate Michael Carter, but he still made a fantasy impact with a 22-yard scoring grab late in the fourth quarter. Johnson now has receiving touchdowns in back-to-back games after notching just one in his first three seasons, but his typically modest rushing role keeps his overall value capped.

Johnson rushed four times for 15 yards while catching five of six targets for 71 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 34-31 win over the Bengals.
EDGE Analysis
Michael Carter compiled 172 scrimmage yards and a touchdown while working as New York's primary backfield option, but Johnson also flourished when called upon, primarily in passing situations. He ignited New York's comeback by scoring the first of two Jets touchdowns in the final five minutes. Johnson was originally ruled out of bounds, but the Jets challenged the play and it was determined that Johnson successfully tiptoed the sideline for a 19-yard touchdown. With 11 catches over the past two weeks, Johnson should be on the PPR flex radar with the Jets set to kick off the Week 9 action Thursday against the Colts.

Johnson (head) isn't listed on Wednesday's injury report, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Johnson must've been cleared after exiting Sunday's loss to New England in the fourth quarter to be evaluated for a concussion. He'll likely continue in his timeshare with Michael Carter this Sunday against the Bengals, while Tevin Coleman (hamstring) appears in danger of missing another game after a DNP on Wednesday.

Johnson exited Sunday's game against the Patriots to be evaluated for a concussion.
EDGE Analysis
Johnson rushed five times for six yards and caught three of four targets for 40 yards before leaving the contest. Michael Carter should handle the bulk of the backfield work while he's being evaluated, while La'Mical Perine operates in a secondary role.

Johnson recorded four rushes for 12 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Falcons. He added two receptions for 22 yards.
EDGE Analysis
Johnson split carries as the Jets' second back with Tevin Coleman and behind Michael Carter. His day was hardly noteworthy as a rusher, with his biggest contribution being a one-yard touchdown plunge early in the third quarter. On the other hand, he was more effective as a receiver by logging two 11-yard catches out of the backfield. The Jets continue to shift their work in the backfield to Carter and Johnson and away from Coleman, a trend that is likely to continue after the team's bye in Week 7 against New England.
