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.After the way Mostert played in the playoffs, many were looking forward to a 2020 breakout season, and it helps knowing that Matt Breida was traded to the Dolphins. The issue is that they are getting Jerick McKinnon back, still have Tevin Coleman, and Jeff Wilson. The passing game also got a new weapon, which could lead to slightly more pass attempts. Despite being on the roster the past two years under Shanahan, Mostert has received 171 carries in 25 games. It's tough to see that changing drastically. There's a chance, which is why he's in the high-end RB3 conversation, but there's also a chance you can't start him with confidence every week.
Brandon Funston

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 careerTrade demands produced desired results of getting paid more money - should now be headed for a Touch/PG boost in lucrative SF backfield in 2020
Elliot Berkovits
Pack to the Future
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.After weeks of flip-flopping, the 49ers finally gave Mostert his shot and he never looked back. Now he enters the season as the clear RB1 in a run-heavy offense. That being said, the 49ers do use multiple backs which will make owning Mostert frustrating at times, but overall, I think he outperforms his current ADP.
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.Mostert had 952 yards from scrimmage and 10 touchdowns in a season that saw him emerge as the lead back in the RBBC at the end of the regular season and in the playoffs. He is not going to be a bell cow back, but the lead back in this RBBC is worth RB2 value.

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.Mostert should be the lead back in this offense, but it might not lead to top-tier fantasy production. The 49ers like to deploy multiple running backs and Tevin Coleman is still going to be heavily involved. Mostert should be viewed as a RB2 this upcoming season.
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 
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
 Mostert out-gained Tevin Coleman 772-to-544 on the same number of carries (137) and posted the same receiving yardage (180) on seven fewer catches (21-to-14). --@4for4_John
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 offence 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 offence, I do think David Johnson has a very solid floor and provides a nice safe pick with solid upside.After years of two 100+ rushers, in 2019 the 49ers had three guys over 120 carries but it was Mostert who stood out. Mostert "burst onto the scene" (with his fifth team in his fourth season) in 2018 before an unfortunate injury dropped him down the depth chart. His talent drew him back up though and he balled out to end the season last year. Moving forward, Matt Breida is finally gone and while Jeff Wilson will be a frustrating poachers, it's a far more management backfield duo which projects Mostert as its 1A. While he finished the season, playoffs included, with an extraordinary 12 TDs in 9 games, it's far more likely he settles into 80ish all-purpose yards and a possible TD most weeks. That's good for seasonal RB2 value with the occasional week winning explosion. That's nice and all, but there's little seasonal top-end upside so you're likely best off looking elsewhere.
