Chris Johnson expected to play Week 17 despite sore ankle: Fantasy implications

USA TODAY Sports

Chris Johnson's ankle is still sore, but he expects to play in the season finale. We break down the fantasy implications.

Tennessee Titans RB Chris Johnson is sore with an ankle injury, but he's expected to play in Week 17, according to Jim Wyatt. Johnson was in and out of Sunday's game with the injury, and it showed--he ended with only 28 yards on 11 carries.

The Titans take on the Jacksonville Jaguars next week in a battle that will determine nothing but draft position.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson was an extreme boom-or-bust player even before the injury, so it's hard to see him doing anything with a gimpy ankle. It's also hard to see the Titans pushing their expensive back in a meaningless finale.

If your fantasy league plays into Week 17, Johnson would be a very weak flex option.
