Chris Johnson has carried 75 times in three games this season, but Coach Jeff Fisher says there are no plans on limiting him in practice.
Instead, Fisher said Monday he may use Javon Ringer more extensively in games. Ringer provided a spark with a 17-yard run on Sunday, and he’s totaled 64 yards on 13 carries – a 4.9-yard average. Johnson has gained 301 yards on his 75 carries, an average of 4.0 per run.
"I’m giving some thought to getting Javon some more carries early in the ballgame because he’s been very effective for us," Fisher said. "We’re switching backs to give (the backs) a break and Javon is making big plays for us."
While Johnson owners love seeing him get all the touches at RB, it's probably for the best Ringer chips in now and then so Johnson is around later this season. Johnson will still be considered the top one or two RB week-to-week in the fantasy world.
