This Week Outlook
Ty Johnson rushed 11 times for 45 yards and caught 2-of-2 targets for 23 yards in the Jets' Week 17 loss to the Patriots.
Johnson was a popular DFS play this weekend but failed to find the end zone. The 23-year-old isn't on the fantasy radar entering the offseason.
Ty Johnson rushed three times for 16 yards in the Jets' shocking Week 15 win over the Rams, adding six catches for 39 yards and a touchdown through the air.
Johnson's 18-yard TD reception was his lone highlight of the day. Otherwise, this was the Frank Gore Show. Johnson was out-touched by the elder statesman 24-to-9 on the day. Johnson isn't a fantasy factor for a Week 16 date with the Brown.
Ty Johnson rushed eight times for 16 yards in the Jets' 40-3 Week 14 loss to the Seahawks.
Johnson ran for over 100 yards last week but things were much more difficult against Seattle. We don't recommend starting any Jets players down the stretch in fantasy football.
Ty Johnson rushed 22 times for 104 yards and a touchdown in the Jets' Week 13 loss to the Raiders, adding two catches for an additional 13 yards.
Frank Gore left this one with a concussion and never returned, clearing the way for Johnson to operate as the team's feature back. He certainly delivered, and the question now becomes whether or not he's worth adding off waivers entering Week 14 against the Seahawks. The early lean is that any running back seeing touches should be added in 12-team leagues.
Former Lions running back Ty Johnson was claimed off waivers by the New York Jets on Friday, according to multiple reports.
Johnson was buried on the depth chart in Detroit and was finally let go, but he will find himself in an equally crowded backfield in New York with Frank Gore, Lamical Perine, Kalen Ballage, and Josh Adams all on the active roster and Le'Veon Bell expected back from his hamstring injury in the near future.
