|Undrafted in most fantasy leagues a season ago, Chris Johnson became an important fantasy option once Andre Ellington went down with an injury early in the season. Johnson stepped into the starting role, helping the Cardinals establish a viable rushing attack to go along with one of the league’s most electric passing games. Johnson compiled 814 rushing yards in 11 games before going down with an injury of his own, leading the way for David Johnson to truly breakout. At 31 years old once the season starts, “CJ2K” is not the burner he once was, but he was still quick enough to break off multiple 30-plus-yard rushes a season ago. He’s a late round handcuff and he’ll start the season as the backup to David Johnson, but is one injury away from once again being a major fantasy asset.

|The Arizona Cardinals announced a flurry of roster moves Tuesday morning, including placing running back Chris Johnson and safety Tyvon Branch on injured reserve. The moves with Johnson, Branch and Butler don’t necessarily mean they are done for the season. (Arizona Republic)|
FFToday's Take: Johnson will miss at least the next 8 weeks meaning fantasy owners can safely cut him. Andre Ellington and Stepfan Taylor are next up on the depth chart. Kerwynn Williams has also been signed for depth.
