Chris Johnson Fantasy Analysis

  • Ellington probable for Week 5
    Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (knee) is probable for Sunday's game against the Lions. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday, so he shouldn't have any restrictions. Ellington will work behind Chris Johnson, though, leaving him as a risky RB3 or flex. Full Story

  • Johnson drops to 3rd on depth chart
    Cardinals HC Bruce Arians suggested that RB David Johnson will drop to 3rd on the depth chart with RB Andre Ellington back this week.  "It's not hard, because the young guy sits down," Arians said of the crowded RB situation.  Johnson has flashed big-play ability, averaging 5.7 yards per carry and 15.2 yards per catch.  But he lost a fumble and dropped a TD last week.  Johnson could earn his way into a larger role later this year, but he belongs on fantasy benches for now.  Chris Johnson is currently Arizona's lead back, while Ellington will return in a change-of-pace role.

  • Ellington questionable for Week 4
    Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams after a limited week of practices. HC Bruce Arians reiterated on Friday that Ellington is a game-time decision. If he plays, he'll work behind RB Chris Johnson vs. a stout run defense. Full Story

  • Johnson still the lead back?
    Cardinals HC Bruce Arians said Tuesday that he expects RB Chris Johnson to remain a "15-20 touch" guy going forward.  Of course, this is the same Arians who said last year that RB Andre Ellington would see 25-30 touches per game.  The takeaway here, though, is that Johnson will remain heavily involved -- perhaps even as the lead back.  The 30-year-old has averaged a decent 4.2 yards per carry through 3 games.  Still, he's the least talented player among Arizona's RB trio, so we'd expect Johnson's role to shrink at some point.  The Cardinals backfield is best off avoided in a tough Week 3 matchup against the Rams.
