Titans RB Chris Johnson says poor run game due to lack of execution

Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson @ChrisJohnson28 told reporters that poor execution was the reason behind their struggling rushing attack after his team's 0-2 start. "The run game ain't working," Johnson said. "We just aren't executing the plays. I don't know why we're not." He went on to say, "People need to step up and do their job. They don't need to let people beat them. It don't matter who the opposing defense is, you can't let your guy beat you. You just can't give up plays. You have to make plays like they make plays. I can't speak for the defense. I can only speak for the offense."

Fantasy Analysis:

After two games, Johnson has only rushed for 21 yards on 19 carries. Hardly fitting for a lack likely drafted in the first round of most every fantasy draft. The last time Johnson rushed for over 100 yards, it was Week 13 of the 2011 season. In 2009, when he rushed for 2,006 yards, he exceeded 100-plus yards 12 times. In 2011, he barely surpassed 1,000 yards and hasn't at all played like his "CJ2K" moniker would suggest. It's probably a good time to buy-low on Johnson since there's really no way he'll play this poorly for the remainder of the season.
