Chris Johnson will enter free agency after Jets decline to exercise their option

Saturday, February 14, 2015, 3:00pm

NY Jets - [Full Article]

The team will not exercise its option on running back Chris Johnson and he can become an unrestricted free agent on March 10.

Fantasy Impact:

Johnson's release is not a surprise, though there are now approximately 179 touches up for grabs in New York. The team has been linked to free agent C.J. Spiller, who had his best season (250 touches, 1703 total yards, eight touchdowns) under new Jets OC Chan Gailey back in 2012. If the Jets sign Spiller, he would form a one-two punch with Chris Ivory, who rushed for 821 yards (on 4.1 YPC) last season.

Scouting Report

Week 17: Johnson vs Dolphins

Chris Johnson split the carries last week with Chris Ivory but was on the field for more snaps (25 to 18). Bilal Powell also was on the field for 18 snaps. Johnson had a big game last time out against Miami, rushing for 105 yards, his only 100-yard rushing game of the season.

Miami is 21st in aFPA to running backs, but the fact that the carries and snaps are split limits all the Jets backs fantasy impact. Johnson should not be in your starting lineup this week unless Ivory ends up not playing. He is nursing a bad hamstring. At the moment, Ivory is the better choice for Week 17.
