Fantasy Football Maniax
The Raiders spent a lot of money to upgrade a defense that allowed the fifth most points to fantasy running backs, but I think Johnson has big game upside in the season opener.
The Patriots are going to be better than 20th against fantasy running backs this year, but Moreno has played well as of late and should be the lead back in the Miami opener.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Johnson was average against Raiders last year and he may share the rock. He can go for a home run or stink it up. Total toss up.
Is going to have a role and could be productive out of the gates.
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
Chris Johnson can be sneaky play in Week 1 if you are looking for a flex player.

MIA figures to play from behind, so the snap count should be in Moreno's favor this week over Lamar Miller.
