The artist formerly known as CJ2K hasn't come close to that 2,006-yard total he put up in 2009, but he's still gotten over 1,000 yards in every year of his career. Shonn Greene is in town to potentially steal a few goal-line carries, but the revamped Titans offensive line bodes well for Johnson.
Ivory was underutilized in New Orleans, due in large part to repeated bouts with injuries. Now the top job is his for the taking with the Jets. If he can remain injury-free, he's a potential steal.

Not a fan, until he can string a few good games together. Brutal matchup.

CJ2k should get the ball a lot but this is a brutal road matchup to get things started.
Ivory nicks up easy and Bucs are tough on run, so not the greatest play out there.

CJ?K With an improved O-Line, CJ has been running well this pre-season. His Jet-Packs are still unmatched.
When returning from injury, should have no problem taking the job back from Bilal Powell in an anemic New York Offense.
  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
Tennessee's improved offensive line finds itself in tough to start, against last year's stingiest defense to opposing RBs.

Should be a solid value pick if he manages to play all 16 games
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Steelers were 4th against fantasy running back defenses, but they have the oldest starting defense in the NFL, so that could fall off this year. The Titans are also improved on the offensive line, I think Johnson is at least a low RB2 this week.

CJ2K knows that Fantasy Football owners are quickly starting to doubt him. He is an inconsistent RB who will run for 40 Yards for 3 Quarters, then get a 70 Yard run in the 4th Quarter to give him a big week. Jake Locker has to show growth this preseason, and then CJ's value will rise. Shonn Greene is a big buzz kill for TDs. But you know CJ2K will make up for those plays in other ways.
Here's a great idea. Take a terrible team, keep your horrible QB. Get rid of your star RB. Sign a young version of what your RB could be, and then tell the world that he is going to be special. Then tell the world, that you plan on feeding him the ball consistently and to watch out for how good he can be. So now that defenses know, Ivory is going to get carry after carry after carry. You shut him down for the first couple of quarters, the Jets are now down 27-0. Ivory is no longer a t...

Johnson had a good game against the Steelers last season with 23 touches for 114 yards, but he didn't score and Pittsburgh remains a tough place to play and will often get the best of opposing running backs. They only allowed two players to top 100 yards rushing all last year and gave up just 3.8 yards per carry.
The Bucs put the hurt on running backs last season and led the league in rushing yards allowed and tied for the smallest yards per carry allowed. And the only two running backs to top 100 yards against them were Alfred Morris and Adrian Peterson. Chris Ivory has yet to round into form as a Jet and is barely a flex play at this point.
