Titans looking for a bigger RB to complement Chris Johnson

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Titans HC Mike Munchak told Pro Football Talk that he wants to add a "downhill" to the backfield to take some of the load off of RB Chris Johnson. He said that Johnson would still "get as many touches, but would maybe do it in different ways," like catching the ball out of the backfield on dump-offs and screens.

Fantasy Impact: 

Johnson has only scored 10 rushing TDs in the last two seasons, so don't expect a drop in short-yardage touches to drastically impact his fantasy value. If anything, his value is enhanced in PPR formats if the Titans follow through on their intention to involve him more heavily in the passing game.
