The Titans are still starting Chris Johnson, but that doesn't mean you have to. We break down the fantasy implications.

Another week, another PR debacle for the Tennessee Titans and RB Chris Johnson. After his latest dud in Week 2 against the San Diego Chargers (eight carries, 17 yards), coach Mike Munchak once again reiterated that Johnson is still the starter. The Titans play the Detroit Lions in Week 3.

Fantasy Impact: This is now two weeks in a row that Munchak was forced to give the dreaded "vote of confidence" statement. After two games, CJ has just 21 yards on 19 attempts, and looks nothing like the CJ2K of old. There's time to turn things around, but "fool me once..." and "definition of insanity..." and all that--it's quickly starting to look like a lost season in Tennessee. Fantasy owners should start looking for better options.
