Chris Johnson on pace for fifth 1K yard season: Fantasy Implications

Andy Lyons

Tennessee Titans RB Chris Johnson needs 7 more yards to hit the 1K mark. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson needs only seven more rushing yards to reach 1,000 yards, per Jim Wyatt. If Johnson breaks that mark this Sunday, it will be his fifth consecutive 1,000-yard season as a pro.

Considering his incredibly slow and questionable start to the 2012 season, it's impressive that CJ2K was able to rebound in such fashion. Johnson's next opportunity will be in Week 14 against the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Analysis: It's pretty much guaranteed that Johnson hits that mark. For a good part of the season, Johnson was a total disappointment for fantasy owners -- even riding the bench in a lot of leagues.

However, Johnson has clearly caught fire toward the back half of the season. He should be a viable fantasy option in the playoffs. Consider CJ a very good RB1 against the Colts run D on Sunday.
