The Nashville Tennessean - [Full Article]

The Titans believe RB Chris Johnson is ready to bounce back after a disappointing season in 2011, when he managed a career-low 1,047 yards and 4.0 yards per carry average.

He gained eight pounds of muscle to make him sturdier in the trenches, and he spent the offseason working with his coaches and teammates at Baptist Sports Park in the offseason program.

Fantasy Impact: 

We have Johnson rated 6th among our RBs. It's natural to want to shy away from CJ2K after last season's frustrations, especially if you were an owner. But, with an ADP of the late first round (eighth pick in both standard and PPR), you almost have to be tempted to take a shot at that point in the draft. He seems to be dedicated to bouncing back this year, and with Tennessee's improved weapons in the passing attack, it should open some things up for him.
