Jets don't expect Chris Johnson to be a workhorse running back and will limit his carries to keep him fresh.
It seems like the Jets signed Johnson thinking he could be a more productive back if given fewer carries, and hit more "home runs" with fresh legs. CJ?K has looked terrible between the tackles the last couple of seasons, and the three-headed monster of Chris Ivory, Bilal Powell and Chris Johnson could be a very productive backfield. It could be a frustrating situation for fantasy owners. ANALYST:
Rays designated P Grant Balfour for assignment.
There's no word as to why Balfour was DFA'd here as he's pitched pretty well so far, especially for a guy who had to leave the team during spring training to help take care of his ailing father. He did hit a bump in the road Saturday when he allowed three earned runs in two-thirds of an inning, but before that, he had made five appearances, pitched 3 2/3 innings and allowed two hits with no runs. The Rays will likely give some reason for the move, but look for Balfour to pick up with another team fairly quickly. Analysis: Howard Bender
