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.
Leshoure showed some flashes when healthy last year, but now Reggie Bush has come to take over. But when they're down near the goal like, look for Leshoure.

Fantasy Football Freaks
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.

CJ?K With an improved O-Line, CJ has been running well this pre-season. His Jet-Packs are still unmatched.
 
  
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 prove to be closer to 100% this year and may get more touches than many expect in Lions backfield
  
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.
 
  
Muntradamus

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.
Leshoure is not completely out of the picture with the signing of Reggie Bush. Leshoure will be the goal line and short yard RB for the Lions. Joique Bell is still a factor, but Leshoure should have him BEAT. Let us not forget that Reggie Bush is not 100% guaranteed to make it healthy all season long, give Leshoure a few weeks with RB#2 possibilities.
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
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.
