Through three weeks, Chris Johnson was challenging to be the worst first-round fantasy pick of all time. Even first-rounders in years past that have suffered season-ending injuries right at the beginning of the year have allowed their owners to start halfway decent backs in Weeks 2 and 3. Johnson hasn’t afforded that luxury to anyone, rushing for 45 yards on 33 carries in three weeks of play, and the obvious question was, “Is he done?” Week 4 saw an explosion for Johnson, who went up against a tough Houston team and came away with 141 rushing yards on 25 carries. Is he now a locked-in starter on fantasy teams? Not exactly. It’ll take more than one big performance to erase three weeks of stink. For now, consider him a borderline RB2. However, if he posts another good line, he’ll see his stock rise to every-week starter once again.
The rest of the Start/Sit rankings are below, using the Fantasy Pros setup from our preseason rankings. As always, I’ll be checking the comments section throughout the week to answer specific questions.
