The Browns were only 17th against fantasy backs last year, but they should be improved this year. Bell will have to work hard for his yards in this game.
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.

Chris Johnson can be sneaky play in Week 1 if you are looking for a flex player.

Sharing the rock versus good defense? Not loving that.
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.
