Rex Ryan claims Jets RB Chris Johnson is not being phased out

Wednesday, October 29, 2014, 9:35pm

NY Post - [Full Article]

“Of course I’m frustrated,” Jets RB Chris Johnson told The Post on Wednesday. “On top of having a limited role, not playing as much as I want to play and then on top of that we’re 1-7. It’s frustrating.”

Jets coach Rex Ryan said he believes Johnson’s limited role last week was because of the lopsided score, but the game did not get out of hand until the fourth quarter. Ryan was asked if the Jets are phasing Johnson out.

“No, I don’t believe so,” Ryan said. “I think he will get plenty of shots at it this week.”

Fantasy Impact:

Chris Ivory is out-touching Johnson at a 2-to-1 clip over the past four weeks. After seeing an average of 12.3 touches in his first four games with the Jets, Johnson has received just 8.0 in his last four. Ivory is outperforming Johnson, which is the reason for the shift in workload. Johnson is cuttable at this point, but still has some upside as a talented back who would see a large workload if the injury-prone Ivory were to get injured.

Scouting Report

Week 8: Johnson vs Bills
Chris Johnson is still getting on the field, but he clearly is the No. 2 to Chris Ivory and his numbers are still low overall despite 80 total yards last week, his highest total since Week 1.

It's a tough matchup for all the Jets' backs as Buffalo is 2nd in aFPA to running backs. Keep Johnson on the bench for Week 8 as the Bills will not be as soft against the run as the Patriots were last week.
