This year's biggest first round fantasy bust poses a problem for owners
Chris Johnson gets all the heat for being a first-round fantasy bust, and rightfully so.
Johnson has been downright terrible. The use of the lockout is long gone. The excuse of the contract holdout is long gone. He has just been awful at giving fantasy players a return on their investment.
Six-time Pro Bowler claims he will be ready to play in less than a month
Attention NFL teams! Need help at wide receiver? If so, Terrell Owens wants you to know he is available. Owens, who had surgery to repair a torn ACL in April, said in an interview this week that he plans to be ready to play in less than a month.
