Chris Johnson runs well again in Week 6, fantasy output increases

Chris Johnson actually looked like a decent runner against the Steelers. We break down the fantasy implications.

Chris Johnson finished Week 6 with 19 carries for 91 yards, adding four receptions for 23 yards in the receiving game. The artist formerly known as CJ2K looked somewhat like his former self, making cuts and getting upfield when he needed to.

Fantasy Impact: Where does this version of Johnson disappear to in those down weeks? He looked confident running the ball against the Steelers, and while there were several plays where he could he broken off bigger yardage, this is another solid step in his progression going forward. Jamie Harper did steal a touchdown on a goal-line carry, but Johnson is still the man in the Titans backfield. He'll take on an abysmal Bills run defense next Sunday. Maybe he can really break out in Week 7?
