Perine and Johnson were both listed as second on the depth chart leaving the rookie Carter buried. That had been the trend in preseason games with Carter only getting in those game late. Carter will need to make a sharp and quick climb in order to have value in typical redraft leagues. Until then, it may be hard to devote a roster spot to him.
NYJ RB Ty Johnson - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at New England
With Frank Gore out for the season finale, Ty Johnson will get the start. He has shown he can do the job when he carried the ball 22 times for 104 yards against the Raiders back in Week 13. Expect Johnson to get the majority of the playing time at running back.
Johnson faces the Patriots who are ranked 27th in aFPA to running backs. New England is a mess right now and we expect the Jets to be able to generate some offense.
Start Johnson as a high-end RB3 or flex for Week 17. The Jets showed they trust him and 20 touches is very probable. That should be enough to get some decent fantasy numbers.
