Chris Johnson released by Cardinals

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the Arizona Cardinals have released running back Chris Johnson.

Fantasy Impact

Since Arionza acquired Adrian Peterson from the Saints Tuesday for a conditional draft selection, Johnson's roster spot immediately become in jeopardy. Shorty following the announcement of the Peterson deal, however, the Cardinals officially moved on from Johnson for the second time in 2017. Barring another return to Arizona, Johnson's career could be coming to an end.

Chris Johnson ineffective with limited carries

Cardinals' running back Chris Johnson has held to just 21 yards on nine carries on Sunday, as the team played from behind all day in the 34-7 loss to the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact

Andre Ellington, not Johnson, has shown that he is the more exciting fantasy option here, specifically in PPR formats. All of Johnson's games won't be this bad, but its still hard to see him as start-able in many formats right now.

Chris Johnson leads Cardinal rushing attack

Chris Johnson had 13 carries for 32 yards in the Cardinals 16-13 win over the 49ers. He led the team in carries and yardage as the inconsistent Cardinals offense continues to struggle without David Johnson.

Fantasy Impact

While Chris Johnson is clearly the lead back, it would be hard to justify starting him with the Cardinals unable to move the ball or score. Look for a better option.

Chris Johnson held to 17 yards on Monday night

Chris Johnson led the Cardinals' backfield in touches on Monday night with 12 carries and one reception but could only muster 17 rushing yards and four receiving yards during the 28-17 loss to the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact

The good news for Johnson owners is that he led the Cardinals' backfield with 13 touches compared to 10 for Andre Ellington and one for Kerwynn Williams. The bad news is he averaged only 1.42 YPC with a long run of just five yards. He was also out-snapped by Ellington 49 to 31 with the Cardinals playing from behind. The Cardinals face the 49ers in Week 4 who have allowed just 3.5 YPC this season. Fantasy owners should hold onto Johnson but should only consider starting him as a bye week fill-in if he has a good matchup.

Chris Johnson leads committee in Cardinals win

Chris Johnson carried the ball 11 times for 44 yards to lead the Cardinals in carries and rushing yards against the Colts. His longest run went for 11 yards and he did not find the end zone. Johnson was re-signed after being cut by the team before the season after the injury to David Johnson.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson looked like the lead back over Kerwynn Williams today and is worth an add if you need RB help. Don't expect David Johnson numbers but hope for some goal line carries.
