Chris Johnson was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week after rushing for 195 yards and two touchdowns on 18 carries against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.
Chris Johnson is the AFC Offensive Player of the Week for Week 7 after rushing for 195 yards and two touchdowns on 18 carries against the Buffalo Bills, Jim Wyatt of the Nashville Tennessean reports. The Tennessee Titans defeated the Bills, 35-34, on Sunday.
Johnson has now rushed for at least 91 yards in three of his last four games. The two scores were his first of the season. He had 45 total yards rushing over the first three weeks of the season.
Fantasy Impact: Johnson appears to be back to fantasy relevance, and fantasy owners should feel relatively safe about leaving the running back in their starting lineup this week. He is still capable of the occasional dud performance against a top-notch defense, but the Indianapolis Colts are certainly not that.
