Chris Johnson salvages fantasy day with receiving touchdown

Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson rushes against the Arizona Cardinals at L.P. Field - Frederick Breedon

Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson carried the ball 13 times for 40 yards in their Week 15 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. We bring you the fantasy implications here.

Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson rushed 13 times for 40 yards for a 3.1 yards per carry average against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. Johnson salvaged his fantasy day in the passing game, catching three passes for 51 yards and a touchdown. Johnson has struggled with his hands at times but caught everything quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick threw his way.

On the year, Johnson has carried the ball 230 times for 860 yards and five touchdowns. He has been targeted 48 times in the passing game and has caught 38 passes for 328 yards and four touchdowns.

Fantasy impact: Johnson needs only 140 yards to register a 1,000-rushing-yard season, but it doesn't appear likely he makes it. He is only averaging 63.5 rushing yards per game. Johnson does bring some value in PPR leagues, but it's hard to trust his stats right now. If you are in the fantasy playoffs, surely you have better options. In Week 16, the Titans face the Jacksonville Jaguars, who are giving up the 16th-most fantasy points to running backs.
