TY JOHNSON, NEW YORK JETS:
NEXT THREE WEEKS, WEEK 14 SEATTLE SEAHAWKS, WEEK 15 LOS ANGELES RAMS, WEEK 16 CLEVELAND BROWNS
Frank Gore left the game early in Week 13 with a concussion. Johnson came in and finished the game with 22 carries for 104 yards and a touchdown. He also added two receptions on two targets for 13 receiving yards.
The Jets are dysfunctional, including the dismissal of defensive coordinator Gregg Williams. Adam Gase is still around. So Gore may or may not clear concussion protocol by Week 14. Gase may or may not decide that Johnson deserves a closer look.
What we know is that he is capable of producing and currently is the waiver wire darling. Seattle just got torched by the New York Giants run game (see above). The Rams allowed Kenyan Drake to score a rushing touchdown on 10 rushing attempts, and while the Browns held Derrick Henry in check, Jeremy McNichols did score a rushing touchdown on them.
Good Luck to all those playing in their fantasy football league playoffs. May the fantasy gods be with you! Follow me on Twitter @neverenoughglt
