Chris Johnson has a quiet night. We break down the fantasy implications.

Chris Johnson didn't exactly make waves for the Titans by posting only a pedestrian eight yards on five carries and not catching any of his three targets in Saturday's game against the Seahawks.

Analysis: CJ?K hasn't exactly built a foundation to be drafted in the top six picks, but with the running backs falling by the wayside, fantasy owners might not want to let a featured back like Johnson slip too far. The Titans get their division foes twice as well as the NFC North. The former consensus top pick has no competition and the Titans are still built on setting up the running game. Johnson's Week 17 outing certainly kept fantasy owners with something to desire with his 153 yards on the ground and two scores. It'd be foolish to rule the ex-2K back outside of the top-10 backs. Obviously, there's some risk involved. Welcome to fantasy football.
