Ty Johnson posts solid outing, but question marks arise after Week 7

Ty Johnson had only five carries in their loss to the Patriots, but he also received seven targets.

Fantasy Impact

Fantasy managers will surely enjoy the seven targets, which he turned into six catches and 65 scoreless yards. He also had five carries, but was woefully inefficient with them. He finished with only six rushing yards. At the end of the day, Johnson was able to put forth a decent showing in PPR leagues, but there are signs to be concerned with. Johnson played on only 32% of the snaps, which was his lowest snap percentage of the season. If the Jets are going to feature Carter moving forward, Johnson's path to fantasy relevance is all but gone. He's best left on the waiver wire.

Ty Johnson plays second fiddle to Michael Carter in Jets' backfield

Ty Johnson received only six touches in their Week 5 loss to the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson received four carries and was only able to muster 12 yards. He did, however, find the end zone. He also chipped in with two receptions on three targets for 22 scoreless yards. Johnson is not a viable fantasy option at this time and can be kept on the waiver wire except in deeper leagues.

Ty Johnson seems to fall behind rookie, Michael Carter for lead back duties

Ty Johnson received only three carries, which was behind both, Tevin Coleman and Michael Carter.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson appears to be falling down the depth chart a bit. He was third in carries this week and was able to only earn a single yard. He was targeted twice in the passing and caught both of them for 12 scoreless yards. Carter looks to be the only fantasy-relevant running back for the Jets at this time. Johnson can be left on waivers except in the deepest of leagues.

Ty Johnson has 23 scoreless yards in Week 3 loss to Denver

Ty Johnson, like the rest of the Jets offense, was unable to get anything going in Week 3.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson only handled three carries compared to Carter's nine. He was, however, effective on those carries, totaling 17 yards. On a positive note, Johnson was the third most targeted Jets' player with five. Unfortunately, he was only able to catch one of them for six yards. The Jets were held scoreless, so we have yet to see which running back will handle the goal line touches. Still, with Johnson looking like the 1B to Carter's 1A, fantasy managers shouldn't have any faith in putting Johnson into their starting lineups moving forward. This Jets' offense looks lost and almost all of their offensive players should be avoided.

Ty Johnson gets more touches in Week 2, but still quiet performance overall

Ty Johnson mostly splits touches with Michael Carter, but does show signs of fantasy value.

Fantasy Impact

After a very disappointing Week 1, Johnson rallied in Week 2 and showed some signs of life. He received 12 carries and turned them into 50 yards. This was good for a 4.2 yard per carry average. His longest run went for 17 yards. Unfortunately, he did not receive a target in the passing game, which limits his fantasy upside. Johnson can be stored on benches in 12-team or larger leagues, but is not yet trustworthy to be put into starting lineups.
