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 
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
I'm buying narrative that HC O'Brien going to try to save face on DJ for Hopkins deal by featuring DJ heavily - there's 300-touch, 50+ catch upside if health holds 
Kevin Wheeler

 There's a lot of hype around Vaughn (ADP: 75). Since 2000, only two 23-year-old rookie RBs, drafted in the 3rd round or later, have rushed for over 700 yards. @BraudeM
Mike Tagliere

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 (who's still unemployed) 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.During the scouting process, I felt like Vaughn was just a guy, not a difference maker. That's not to say he wouldn't be able to produce if given the opportunity, but I don't think opportunity will simply be given to him. Don't forget that David Johnson saw just 161 touches his rookie season under Bruce Arians, and that was while he was extremely efficient. Interestingly enough, he was also a third-round pick. This is a situation to monitor throughout the offseason.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 Ke'Shawn Vaughn in Tampa Bay is a dream fit. He's a Bruce Arians RB through and through and he's going to see the field immediately. Ronald Jones will still see some work, but Vaughn excels in both pass protection and pass catching and could walk in and assume the David Johnson role in this offense. He might not be able to put up the production that DJ did, but he's going to be a fantasy football star right out of the gates. He's a home-run pick at the back end of your first round/early 2nd round.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
I do not think we will ever see 2016 David Johnson again, but as the lead back in the Texans offense should be an upgrade from RB Carlos Hyde and he has RB2 value with upside on a good offense, if he can stay healthy.
