 Adams was so ridiculously consistent last season it is a little mind blowing. Had a TD in 11 of 15 games and in the games he did not have a TD he went 8/81, 5/133, 10/166 and 8/119. HE NEVER SCORED SINGLE DIGITS. If you take his worst fantasy game of the season and multiply it by 16, HE WOULD STILL HAVE BEEN WR14.
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
Air Raid system of new HC Kingsbury leans heavily to the pass and history of RBs under him is concerning for DJ, but Kingsbury will likely have to conform a bit to NFL and DJ has no competition concernsCombined 35 receiving TDs over past 3 seasons trails only Antonio Brown (36) - blossomed in PPR in '18, finishing 2nd in targets (169) and setting career high with 111 catches (75 was previous best)
Kevin Wheeler
DraftWize
Kingsbury himself said Johnson will see an "extensive" role that could involve as many as 35 carries or 10 catches in a given game, which could return DJ to his fantasy glory days of 2016. Last season, he got a touch on 34% of plays, but the Cardinals ranked 31st in plays per game with only 56.4. In 2016, Johnson touched the ball at the same rate for a squad that ranked second with 67.9 plays per game, and the result was a league-leading 373 touches and the best fantasy running back season of the past half-decade. @ChrisRaybonDavante Adams scored at least 16.0 PPR Points in every game last season, it was the highest minimum score of a guy who played over 10 games in @StaggsNFL database which dates back to 2013. Eric Decker had the next highest minimum at 11.7 points in 2013.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
The Cardinals offense was a disaster last season, and although Johnson saw plenty of work and put up enough fantasy points to be relevant, his production from recent years went down significantly. But all of that should be just a bad memory now, with the addition of Kliff Kingsbury and Kyler Murray. Kingsbury's system doesn't focus all that much on passes to running backs, but given Johnson's talent level, he should make up for it elsewhere. Expect an elite season, albeit perhaps one that falls short of his 2016 level. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Johnson was the victim of having a bad coaching staff and supporting cast, hopefully their offensive system will help utilize his special talents. He is a low-end RB1 that should benefit playing with rookie QB Kyler Murray in a fast paced offense.Adams was one of the lone bright spots for a disappointing Green Bay Packers team and he should be an elite weapon again in 2019 playing with QB Aaron Rodgers.
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
 His worst game last season was 8/81/0. Talk about consistency.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Now that Steve Wilks is out of town, maybe we'll get back to the normally scheduled programming with Johnson. The air-raid offense that new coach Kliff Kingsbury figures to bring to the Cardinals should give Johnson a lot more work in the passing game. While at Texas Tech, Kingsbury passed the ball on 65 percent of their plays. By comparison, there were just two teams in the NFL who hit that number in 2018. With Kyler Murray presenting elusiveness, it should only help create lanes for Johnson, even if his offensive line is still weakTo know that he finished as the No. 3 wide receiver in fantasy football despite Aaron Rodgers throwing just 25 touchdowns, it should let you know how high his ceiling actually is. It wasn't just one game, either. It took 14.9 PPR points on average to be a top-24 receiver in 2018, and Adams is the only receiver in the NFL who hit that number in every single one of his games
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Now that Melvin Gordon is claiming he will hold out, Johnson is the clear RB5 and will most likely be the 5th pick off the board in most drafts ahead of Hopkins. He was not as good last year, in part because of the offensive line but primarily because the Cardinals ran so few plays. That should change this year under Kingsbury so don't hesitate because of his numbers last season.Adams finished behind Hopkins and Tyreek in fantasy points last year but he was #1 in points per game despite his QB playing on one leg. Adams has now been a WR1 for three straight seasons thanks to double-digit touchdowns every year. He should be gone before the 1/2 turn in most drafts.
Kyle Yates
The Fantasy Footballers
David Johnson fell into fantasy football hell last season with Mike McCoy as the OC in Arizona. Now, Kliff Kingsbury is in town with Kyler Murray and DJ is going to be leaned on heavily in this offense. The running lanes should be there with defenses regularly on their heels and DJ is going to soak up targets in this pass heavy offense. It simply comes down a question of Touchdowns...is this offense going to be explosive enough in year one with a rookie QB that David Johnson will get the scoring opportunities needed to be a top-tier RB? If you believe the answer is yes, then you should be all in on DJ at his ADP.Adams now enters his 6th season in the NFL finally getting the respect his numbers deserve. The last three seasons, Adams has put up a total of 35 touchdowns. LaFluer's offense concerns me, but when you have one of the greatest QB's to ever play the game throwing you the ball, it can overcome those concerns...Adams is a lock for another 10 TD's this year and you should feel confident having him as your team's WR1.
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
I have a higher ranking and projection on DJ than most people do. My argument is simple, last season was the absolute worst case scenerio for DJ. His team struggled to score TD's, his QB played terrible, and his offensive coordinator was pathetic at play calling. Despite all of this...he was able to finish as the RB 10 in half PPR leagues. This season the offense should take a complete 180. They have a new head coach in Kliff Kingsbury that wants to lead the league in plays run, and they have the first overall pick in Kyler Murray, who's a massive upgrade from Josh Rosen. In 2018 the Cardinals were dead last with just 14.1 points per game, and they ran the second fewest plays per game. At the very least, they are going to improve apon thos numbers...and that's great news for DJ. I cannot stress enough how massive of a boost it would be going from just 56 plays per game, up to 70 per game. Not to mention the fact that they might actually be in the red zone for a few of those plays. Draft DJ with confidence.I'll always admit when I'm wrong on a player. I didn't think Adams was this good. But he proved last season that he's an elite WR and when you pair someone of his talent level with Aaron Rodgers…then you have someone worthy of a first round pick in fantasy. Adams finished last season with 111/1389/13...through 15 weeks! He's that rare receiver that has a chance to lead the league in receptions and TD's. He does drop the ball more than we would like, but I really don't care about that stat for fantasy. All I look for is volume, and he's got just as much as anyone. He's 3rd in my projections with 158 targets, and we know that the red zone role is going to be massive. I have no problem if you want to take Hopkins over Adams. The projections, floor and upside are all extremely close. For me, the tie breaker comes down to their QB's...and Adams gets to catch balls from Aaron Rodgers.
