Chris Johnson extension propels him to No. 2 overall


The end of Chris Johnson's contract issues spells the end of any doubts fantasy owners should have of drafting the Titans running back at No. 2 overall. Chris Johnson had been No. 3 in the ESPN fantasy rankings, behind Adrian Peterson and Arian Foster, since May. He was moved down to No. 5 last week as the holdout continued. Arian Foster's hamstring issues have since moved the Texans back below Jamaal Charles, hence Chris Johnson now finds himself at No. 2 overall.

1. Adrian Peterson, RB, Vikings
