Ty Johnson inactive for Week 15

Jets RB Ty Johnson is inactive for Sunday's Week 15 game against the Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact

Michael Carter, Tevin Coleman, and Austin Walter are New York's three running backs for this one. Johnson being inactive is a good sign for Carter's health as he returns from an ankle injury.

Ty Johnson disappoints in starting role in loss to New Orleans

Ty Johnson received six carries and finished with 17 scoreless yards. He also commanded seven targets and caught four of them for 40 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Despite Michael Carter and Tevin Coleman both being inactive, Johnson did not lead the Jets in rushing, which is quite telling in that the coaching staff views him almost exclusively as a receiving back. He was active in the passing game, finishing with the second-most targets on the team. Despite multiple injuries to some of the other running backs, Johnson has not been able to give fantasy managers a quality outing. He can safely be dropped to waivers.

Ty Johnson was invisible in Week 13 loss to the Eagles

Ty Johnson took a backseat to Tevin Coleman as he registered only one carry for a single yard. He also received four targets and caught two of them for 14 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson has been a massive disappointment since Michael Carter went on IR. He has been minimally involved, ceding almost all of the backfield work to Tevin Coleman. Fantasy managers can safely send Johnson to waivers. He's strictly a handcuff and with Carter's eventual return and the anemic Jets' offense, there's little value to be had here.

Ty Johnson completely vanishes in Week 12 despite Michael Carter's absence

Ty Johnson took a backseat to Tevin Coleman and Austin Walter in the running game as he received only six carries to their 16 and nine, respectively. He was a complete no-show in the passing game with just one target that he failed to catch.

Fantasy Impact

It was a massively disappointing day for fantasy managers. Johnson has largely worked as Michael Carter's No. 2, so when he was put on IR, the expectation was Johnson would become the new lead back. Unfortunately, that did not happen. After the backfield committee splits in Week 12, there's no way fantasy managers can trust putting Johnson back into their fantasy lineups.

Ty Johnson's production plummets after another quarterback change

Ty Johnson struggled with Joe Flacco at the helm and saw his passing game involvement almost disappear.

Fantasy Impact

After being an important cog in the passing game the past few weeks, Johnson's role changed and utilization decreased drastically with the switch to Joe Flacco. He received only one carry and one target. He finished with just 13 scrimmage yards.
