Chris Johnson looking "fresher and more explosive"

Sunday, August 11, 2013, 1:25am

The Tennessean - [Full Article]

Anyone who’s been to Titans camp probably wasn’t shocked when RB Chris Johnson ripped off a 58-yard touchdown run against the Redskins on Thursday. He has looked fresher and more explosive than he was last season. He’s catching the ball better than he did last season. Either Johnson is benefiting from having more running backs in camp to share the workload, or he’s motivated by their presence. Whatever the case, it’s a good sign for the Titans.

Fantasy Impact:
Given the upgrades to the Tennessee O-line, Johnson is once again looking like a very solid pick in the 2nd round.

Nashville Tennessean - [Full Article]

The way Titans RB Chris Johnson sees it, if he’s rushing for big yards, the Titans are winning. And the numbers bear him out. During his five-year pro career, the Titans are 24-9 in games when he rushed for 100 or more yards and 18-30 when he didn’t. The record jumps to 7-1 when he hits 150 yards. Whether they are building a lead or protecting it, the Titans are a better team when Johnson is running for chunks of yardage. “Every year I want to rush for 2,000 yards, and I feel like if we are doing what is right and we are making plays on Sunday and if I get to that yardage, I feel like we can be a playoff team and hopefully win a Super Bowl,” he said.

Fantasy Impact:
The article goes on to say that coach Mike Munchak has made no secret of his desire to get back to a dominant ground game that controls the ball and keeps the Titans defense off the field. That means Johnson figures to be busy. The team also signed Shonn Green, who will likely get short yardage work (he was 11-for-11 on third downs last year) and maybe even goal line carries.
