Chris 'CJ2K' Johnson shows up in Week 7: Fantasy Implications

Rick Stewart

Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson looked like his old self on Sunday. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson looked like his old 2,000-yard self on Sunday. In Week 7 versus the Buffalo Bills, it was actually "CJ2K" who showed up on game day. Miraculously, Johnson accumulated 195 yards and two touchdowns on only 18 attempts.

This performance included a long run of 83 yards. This is what the Titans thought they were paying for when they finally gave Johnson the lucrative contract he was looking for. Johnson's big day on the ground helped the Titans get a much-needed win.

Fantasy Analysis: This was a nice, unexpected payout for fantasy owners that have been sticking with Johnson through a very unproductive first quarter of the season. Not only did Johnson nearly hit the 200-yard mark, but he found the end zone twice and carried the team to victory.

His physical tools are the reason he remains such a coveted fantasy player. His straight-line speed and agility makes him a home run threat on any given down. Continue to start Chris Johnson -- hopefully this is a sign he's turning a corner. But keep in mind, this performance came against a very shoddy Bills defense.
