Chris Johnson finds little room to run against Texans, fantasy value suffers

Frederick Breedon

Chris Johnson barely broke the 50-yard mark in Week 13. We break down the fantasy implications.

Chris Johnson rushed for just 51 yards on 13 carries in Week 13 against the Texans. He also managed to haul in four passes for 20 yards on five targets from Jake Locker.

The Titans abandoned the run game as they were constantly playing in comeback mode, so CJ1K didn't see as many touches as he's been accustomed to lately.

Fantasy Impact: He averaged 3.9 yards per carry against the second-ranked run defense in the league. Not impressive, but nothing to be too concerned about going forward.

If Locker can figure out how to throw the ball effectively, Johnson's value will increase. He'll be a solid start again next week when the Titans take on the Colts, the team he rushed for 99 yards against five weeks ago.
