Jacob Wayne
Lineups
The forgotten piece of the DeAndre Hopkins trade saga is David Johnson, a running back who's going to be heavily utilized in Houston. He'll benefit from playing with Deshaun Watson, especially since this team has among the most vacated targets in the NFL. DJ will be used on the ground and through the air and will likely turn in a surprisingly productive, high-end RB2 season. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
The Texans gave their running backs 397 touches last year, and that was with DeAndre Hopkins on the roster. That's a lot of work. The only running back they've added was David Johnson. While Johnson looked horrendous down the stretch, it's possible he just tried to work his way back from injury way too soon. It appears Bill O'Brien isn't convinced that Johnson is done with his NFL career, like some. It's possible that he's not as electric as he once was, but guys, the Texans gave Carlos Hyde 255 touches last year. Opportunity is key in fantasy football, and Johnson appears to be in line for a lot of it in 2020, making him a low-end RB2 with upside for more should he actually be healthy. 
Draft Engine
Draft Engine
Acquired in a deal that sent DeAndre Hopkins to Arizona, Johnson has averaged 3.6 yards per carry over 30 games the past three seasons. Don't expect him to reach 50 catches with Duke Johnson having caught 30 passes over the second half of last season. 
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Bill O'Brien has a long history of leaning on (often mediocre) running backs for 220-270 carries. Arian Foster, Alfred Blue, Lamar Miller and Carlos Hyde all became somewhat fantasy relevant in this offense and David Johnson is next on the list. The real question is how he fits in the passing game and that will make all the difference. The other D. Johnson, Duke, will certainly be a hindrance but we've seen DJ prove impossible to take off the field when things go right and it's just possible he explodes for a big season. I don't love the odds of that but even though this is very must Deshaun Watson's offense, I do think David Johnson has a very solid floor and provides a nice safe pick with solid upside.The Dallas backup has officially lost all his value since moving to the Cowboys.
Rob Wilson
The Fantasy Footballers
Johnson has lost a step, but O'Brien fed Lamar Miller. Boring albeit safe RB2 selection. 
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
After a horrid finish to the 2019 season, many fantasy players seem to be avoiding David Johnson. What people are forgetting is that prior to his injury last year, Johnson was the 6th highest scoring RB with an average of over 17 points per game. Now he joins another high-flying offense in Houston and should be in a great spot to outperform his current ADP.Above-average backup QB, barring injury to Dak Prescott he
Dalton Kates
APEX Fantasy Leagues
Hasn't been good as a runner since his breakout campaign in 2016. Has still been efficient as a receiver and that's likely where he will thrive. Will be 29 this season which is well past the peak age for RBs. Duke Johnson has been great and efficient will be behind him if David falters and underperforms this year. r 
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
If his health holds, his share of the HOU backfield workload should be major, but his potential in the passing game far outweighs his ground game at this point in career 
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
I am COMPLETELY off of DJ this season. He has been a below average or injured back every year since 2016. I repeat, 2016. If you want to bet on a running back renaissance after three years of mediocrity, so be it, I will not be taking that bet. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
I do not think we will ever see 2016 David Johnson again. He joins a new team this year and he is now the lead back in the Texans offense and that should be an upgrade from RB Carlos Hyde. If he can stay healthy, Johnson should be a RB2 with some upside. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Johnson's now joining the Houston Texans and there is a huge workload waiting for him. If he can stay healthy, Johnson should easily return value this season. However, the last time that we saw Johnson, he looked like a shell of his former self. Additionally, Johnson's true fantasy value has come through his contributions in the receiving game. In Houston, with Duke Johnson also on this roster, it's difficult to see David Johnson seeing significant volume. If you draft David Johnson this year, you're betting on him staying fully healthy and him seeing a ton of work in the receiving game. Otherwise, he may go down as a wasted pick when it's all said and done. 
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
Will be taking advantage of his 1 highly publicized run while injured in 2019, of him trying to run around the corner at the speed of your grandpa while injured. Expecting amazing health? Not necessarily, but we've seen what a 1 dimensional, rather bland back can do with the reigns, in Carlos Hyde, in 2019. I'll gladly scoop Johnson as my RB3 
Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
The Texans have a glaring backfield need. Will DJ get himself in tip-top shape to shine here?
