Titans-Chris Johnson Find Solution

Let the debates begin. Chris Johnson or Adrian Peterson…who is the number one pick in fantasy football? The Titans and Chris Johnson have agreed to rework Johnson’s contract to give him a little extra incentive to report to camp. ESPN is calling it a short-term fix to quell the holdout threat. They will continue to work on a long-term deal.
Johnson had 2509 total yards (2006 rushing) and 16 TDs (14 rushing). Peterson, who is largely viewed as the #2 fantasy player (though I actually have AP ranked #1) had 1819 total yards (1383 rushing) and 18 TDs (all rushing). I just feel Johnson will be utilized less after his heavy workload and Peterson will be utilized more in 2010.
Either way, Chris Johnson is one of the top fantasy options and I’m glad that we won’t have to worry about a holdout. Keeper league owners should be celebrating in the streets.
