Jets RB Chris Johnson (knee, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 15. We like Johnson given the revenge narrative in this week’s game against his old team. Beat writer Rich Cimini wrote “Johnson will be highly motivated for this game. He's been talking about it since he signed nine months ago.” It doesn’t hurt that he has averaged 15.0 touches in his last three games, and the matchup is great — Tennessee is #28 in RB aFPA.

Jets RB Chris Johnson wants to 'tear it up' vs. Titans

NY Post - [Full Article]

Chris Johnson did his best to avoid showing how personal Sunday’s game is for him.

The Jets running back clearly does not want to feed into the story line of facing the Titans, the team that dumped him in April after six seasons. But Johnson could not hide it totally. After deflecting a few questions about his personal feelings, Johnson spoke the truth.

“Of course, I want to go in there and tear it up and show them what they missed out on and make them regret that,” Johnson said. “I’m not going into the game and try to make it me versus them.”

Fantasy Impact:

We generally believe in the revenge narrative when it comes to players facing their own teams. Johnson has averaged 15.0 touches in his last three games and given that type of workload, he should have a nice game against a suspect Tennessee defense. He is our #24 RB this week.

Jets RB Chris Johnson (knee, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 14. Johnson has gained at least 60 yards in three of his last four games, and the Jets seem intent on keeping him involved. He’s averaging 12.0 touches in that span and has a good matchup with the Vikings this week.

Dolphins Beat: Run defense the 'biggest issue' down the stretch

Thursday, December 4, 2014, 11:28am

ESPN - [Full Article]

Dolphins beat writer James Walker on the team's sudden struggles against the run:

It is by far the biggest issue plaguing the Dolphins down the stretch. What is strange is their run defense wasn't a problem until the past two weeks. Miami was ranked eighth in run defense after Week 11. But giving up 478 yards in the past two games now has the defense ranked 21st against the run. That is a huge decline. There haven't been any major injuries among the front seven. The Dolphins suddenly forgot the fundamentals of tackling and holding the point of attack. They were forced to put eight (and sometimes nine) in the box the entire second half Monday to stop the Jets. Miami was lucky Geno Smith was the quarterback, because there were plays to be made in the passing game. The Ravens should be a tough matchup for Miami because they also can run the football and have a much better passing game.

Fantasy Impact:

The Dolphins gave up 105 yards on 17 carries to Chris Johnson in Week 13, and the Jets didn't have any semblance of a passing attack in that game. Miami also yielded 167 yards on 27 carries to C.J. Anderson in Week 12, while Joique Bell averaged 4.4 YPC (44 yards on 10 carries) in Week 10. The Ravens have a good rushing attack, so Justin Forsett should be able to post another big fantasy line in Week 14.

Jets Inactives
Jace Amaro TE
Dakota Dozier T
Wesley Johnson C
Bilal Powell RB
Matt Simms QB
Muhammad Wilkerson DE

Fantasy Impact:

Amaro (concussion) was ruled out earlier in the week for the Jets, so no surprise here. QB Michael Vick, RBs Chris Johnson and Chris Ivory and WR Eric Decker are all active as expected.

Week 13 MNF Injury Report - Charles Clay DOUBTFUL

Saturday, November 29, 2014, 4:09pm

Dolphins
OUT

DOUBTFUL
TE Charles Clay (hamstring, knee), CB Cortland Finnegan (ankle), T Nate Garner (illness)

QUESTIONABLE
T Ja'Wuan James (neck)

PROBABLE
G Daryn Colledge (back), WR Rishard Matthews (groin), RB Lamar Miller (knee), C Samson Satele (foot), WR Mike Wallace (chest)

Fantasy Impact:

With Clay unlikely to play again, Dion Sims will get the start. He had four catches for 31 yards filling in last week. The good news for Miami is RB Lamar Miller and WR Mike Wallace are both listed as probable. For the Jets, TE Jace Amaro is out as he goes through concussion protocol. Meanwhile, WR Eric Decker, RBs Chris Ivory, Chris Johnson Bilal Powell and QB Michael Vick are all probable in what could be a tough matchup against a solid Dolphins defense.

MNF Injury Report Week 12 - Fred Jackson QUESTIONABLE

Saturday, November 22, 2014, 4:36pm

Jets
(New York conducted a walk-through on Saturday)

PROBABLE
T Oday Aboushi (shoulder), LB Antwan Barnes (knee), G Willie Colon (knee), WR T.J. Graham (neck), LB David Harris (shoulder), RB Chris Ivory (shoulder), S Jaiquawn Jarrett (calf), RB Chris Johnson (knee), C Nick Mangold (shoulder), LB Trevor Reilly (knee), WR Greg Salas (wrist), QB Geno Smith (right shoulder), CB Darrin Walls (calf)

Bills

PROBABLE
K Dan Carpenter (right groin), WR Marquise Goodwin (ankle), WR Chris Hogan (hip), DE Manny Lawson (ankle), QB Kyle Orton (toe), RB Frank Summers (neck), G Kraig Urbik (shoulder), WR Sammy Watkins (groin)

Fantasy Impact:

Bills RB Fred Jackson is questionable. He's indicated he's going to play, but with the game now Monday night he becomes a bit more risky. It's not a great matchup against the Jets rush defense, but either way owners will need to be prepared just in case Jackson doesn't go. Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown would at least be serviceable backups if needed. Also for the Bills, Watkins and Orton are probable.

For the Jets, Chris Ivory is probable.

Jets RB Chris Johnson (knee) was removed from the injury report Friday after taking full practice reps Thursday.
