Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson has been productive this season, but he's ultimately fallen short of expectations. He's had solid production at 150 carries for 546 yards and two touchdowns, but the bulk of his yardage came in games in which he rushed for 96, 90 and 150 yards, respectively.
He also had games where he only had 21, 17, 33, 39 and 30 yards. The 30-yard performance was what he put forth in Week 10 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He also had a fumble in that game, which caused the Titans to fall behind early. They eventually lost to Jacksonville, giving them their first win of the season.
Johnson had a string of four poor games before putting up 150 yards against the St. Louis Rams in Week 9. That game saw both of his touchdowns this season as well, meaning he's been held without a score in eight of the team's nine games thus far.
Fantasy Impact: While he's been disappointing thus far, Johnson does have a desirable matchup in the Indianapolis Colts this week. The Colts have the No. 26 rush defense in the NFL, allowing 126.6 rushing yards per game on average. Johnson will also see plenty of carries, given that Jake Locker is likely to miss the game and Ryan Fitzpatrick should be starting at quarterback. Unless you've fully replaced him at this point, start Johnson with confidence on Thursday.
