Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson rushed 18 times for 69 yards while catching six passes for 32 yards and a touchdown in the Week 13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. Johnson was targeted seven times in the passing game and had a score but quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick was brutal. Johnson was spelled by Shonn Greene who rushed 10 times for 39 yards. On the year, Johnson has 205 carries for 774 yards and four touchdowns on the ground while catching 33 passes for 268 yards and one touchdown.

Fantasy impact: The Titans running game has been inconsistent this year with the offensive line underperforming at times so Johnson's numbers have suffered. It's not all the offensive line, but Johnson does show flashes of the old CJ2K. Johnson is averaging about 65 yards per game and only 3.8  yards per carry. He gets the bulk of the carries, but the four touchdowns don't equal elite fantasy production anymore. He is only a matchup play at this point.
