On Sunday, fantasy owners finally saw the Chris Johnson they expected when he was an early first-round selection in drafts back in August. The Tennessee Titans running back broke out for 130 yards on 27 carries. He also found the end zone for a score. He provided bonus points by catching four passes for 44 yards.
Despite Sunday's performance, Johnson has been one of the most disappointing fantasy options of the 2011 NFL season. The Titans runner, expected to easily crest 1,000 yards as he did in each of the last three seasons, was instead on pace to fall short of 750 yards entering Week 10. And he didn't have the receiving yards (just 206) or touchdowns (one on the year) to make up for that yardage deficiency, either.
