Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 15: Chris Johnson sharing the load at RB

Chris Johnson was overshadowed by Shonn Green on Sunday. Does he get it going against the Cardinals for fantasy owners?

The Tennessee Titans were able to put some points up against the Denver Broncos on Sunday, but Shonn Greene was the biggest part of the scoring equation with his two TDs and 46 rushing yards. While the Broncos completely crushed them, the Titans scoring 28 points as an offensive unit isn't too shabby.

Chris Johnson also ran for 46 rushing yards in the losing effort, scoring once to go with two receptions for nine yards. CJ2K has been solid over his last four games with a total of 274 rushing yards, 47 receiving yards, 12 receptions and three TDs.

He's finally starting to show some consistency, but this week's matchup isn't the greatest. The Arizona Cardinals are the third-toughest defense for running backs, which is saying something considering they're in the same division as the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy impact: The Titans might be able to score some points, but it's unlikely to be on the ground. Johnson is more of a low-end RB2 in most formats, so he's far from a must-start play.
