As Cimini added, it could mean his career is over at 37. But for Week 17, Perine and Johnson could handle a bulk of the work with maybe Adams factoring in as well. Perine had nine rushes for 30 yards in Week 16 behind Gore's line of 14-48-0.
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.
