Johnson was viewed as a disappointment last year, but still finished as the 9th overall fantasy running back with 1,422 yards from scrimmage and 10 total touchdowns. He should lead the New York Jets in rushing attempts, but he will be in a timeshare with RB Chris Ivory.
Considering the Jets offense, I do not think Ivory did that bad with 833 yards rushing and three rushing touchdowns. I do not think he will ever be an elite fantasy back, but with WR Eric Decker improving the passing offense, Ivory could emerge as a nice flex play in 2014. Chris Johnson will lead the team in carries, but Ivory will see plenty of touches and could emerge as the goal line option.

Looks like a 60/40 split w/ Ivory in backfield, but NYJ will be run heavy, so workload should be good enough

Chris Johnson has joined the New York Jets and anyone who does not recognize the fear a Michael Vick/Chris Johnson tandem will instill in opposing defensive coordinators has not been following football close enough. The ‘fastest backfield ever built’ could propel the Jets to the playoffs and Johnson to RB1 numbers...but Geno Smith is being pushed by team brass to be the starter limiting Johnson’s fantasy value. Chris Ivory is a legit threat to steal carries but it would be very surprising to see Ivory not miss games with an injury or two this season.
Chris Ivory has plenty of juice in his legs but is injury prone and playing behind a back with every-down skills in Chris Johnson. Ivory should still flirt with flex2 value and has shown he can produce at an RB2 level if Johnson misses time or gets demoted. The Jets will run enough for both backs to have value and both will see their value spike if Michael Vick gets starts this season.
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
His role as an every down back are fading and he is going to be a bit of a gamble pick and may go too early in drafts.
Chris Johnson crushed Ivory's value

CJ2K may not be a Titan heading into the season, make sure to keep track of his situation during the off season. Word is that the Titans have put Chris on the trading block. But that won't do any good. No one will take that contract, we will have to wait when the Titans finally release him.
With Chris Johnson in town, many wonder if there will be a timeshare or not. Ivory was good last season, and by the numbers, was a better runner than CJ, but Johnson could improve with a better offensive line in front of him. I'm on the fence about drafting either guy in leagues if I can avoid them.

The NY Times
Favorite to lead the run-heavy committee in NY, but will give way to Ivory at the stripe.
The fragile back is second in line & will handle goal line duties.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
CJ2k wants 2k yds again. Not too likely without a true feature role, but he can still offer RB2 upside.
Just how much of his role will Chris Johnson cut into?
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
Not sure what to do with CJwhocaresK. He still has the speed and skill, but can you trust him to break a tackle? Sometimes, yes, so he has to be drafted. He'll be up and down all season, but put up a few big games to keep you believing.
 
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
Wildly erratic from week to week. Let someone else deal with the frustration.
A better runner than C. Johnson, but Ivory can't stay healthy, doesn't catch passes.

Rex Ryan said Chris “CJ?K” Johnson was “flying” in the mandatory conditioning running. CJ?K was recently cleared after surgery on his 2013 torn meniscus injury. He’s in line to share a workload with Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell and remains a low end RB2. Remember when Chris Johnson GUARANTEED to rush for 2,500 yards and win MVP, Geno Smith has GUARANTEED the Playoffs to New York in 2014 and Rex Ryan GUARANTEES everything. In other news, ESPN New York expects a timeshare/backfield by committee approach between CJ?K and Powell/Ivory this season. Johnson will see much less volume than he did in Tennessee and shouldn’t be viewed as the option he was in years past.
