Chris Johnson July Eastbay Catalog

words_Jordan Hagedorn

Back in July star RB Chris Johnson was featured on the cover of Eastbay. He and the Titans will take the field on Sunday to face the Raiders. CJ has been one of the most famous players in the league the last couple of years due to his Fantasy Football value. Read below for more about the third-year running back.

Entering his third season, the 5-foot 11-inch, 191-pound back has been a beast in the NFL. In his senior season at East Carolina in 2007, Johnson had 236 carries for 1,423 yards and 17 touchdowns. He showed his versatility by catching 37 balls for 528 yards and six scores out of the backfield. The Titans selected him number 24 overall in the 2008 NFL Draft. He had a big rookie campaign by playing in 15 games, rushing 251 times for 1,228 yards and nine TDs. He helped the Titans start 10-0 and finish the regular season with a 13-3 record before losing 13-10 to the Ravens in the Playoffs.

Last year he ran 358 times for a crazy 2,006 and 14 TDs. He had a bunch of huge games, but just to mention a couple, he ran 16 times for 197 yards and two TDs Week 2 against the Texans, went for 228 yards on 24 carries and two scores against the Jags in a Week 8 30-13 win and had 154 yards and a score against the Cards Week 13. CJ rushed for over 100 yards in the last 11 games of the season, which will hopefully carry over into this season. He and his squad have high expectations this year considering they won eight of their last 10 games to end the 2009 season, narrowly missing the playoffs. Keep an eye out for CJ this year as I’m sure he’ll keep racking up fantasy points.
