Former Titans RB Chris Johnson reached agreement with Jets on a two-year deal, per league sources.
While CJ2K is on the obvious decline, he still becomes a major improvement to the Jets ground game as neither Chris Ivory nor Bilal Powell are anything to write home about. Johnson won't carry the full load on his own, but should touch the ball enough to be the clear-cut primary running back. He'll make for a decent RB2 pick-up in fantasy leagues.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Matt Cain is finally healthy and ready to be in the Giants rotation.
The three-time all-star is finally healthy. He hasn't been able to start more than 15 games in each of the last two seasons. If Cain can get back to the level he was pitching at during the 2012 season, the Giants will have a lethal rotation. Don't forget, they've won the World Series three straight even years. By our calculations after carrying the two -- it's an even year. Cain is a key compenent to the Giants success this year. Analysis: James Grande
Padres will likely not look to trade James Shields until the trade deadline.
Although Shields had a good record during his first year in San Diego, he was very pedestrian. His ERA was just below 4.00 at 3.91 and posted a below average 1.33 WHIP. After a season like that, his trade value can't be very high. San Diego's main strategy is likely to hope Shields pitches well enough to bolster his value. His contract is also going to be hard to move if he's not pitching like a top flight pitcher by the time the trade deadline rolls around. Analysis: James Grande
