Johnson becomes the lead back in Houston with RB Lamar Miller lost for the season. He should have RB3 value with upside, even with the addition of RB Carlos Hyde. Hyde should simply be a veteran presence to give Johnson a breather and offer a change of pace. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
In case you missed it, Johnson was traded to the Texans. You also may have missed the fact that Lamar Miller tore his ACL during their third preseason game. Unless the Texans trade for a running back, Johnson is walking into a 15-plus touch role on one of the league's best offenses. He could post RB2 numbers if they don't add anyone of significance. *UPDATE* The Texans traded for Carlos Hyde, which bodes well for Johnson considering Hyde has been among the least efficient running backs over the last two years.After signing a big contract with the Titans, it appears they backed-off using him extensively towards the end of last year when Derrick Henry went bonkers. The Titans have said they want the offense to be built around Henry, but Lewis is much better in pass-protection and is a much better pass-catcher. In games the Titans fall behind, Lewis will have a bigger role
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
With Lamar Miller out for the season, Duke is the favorite to lead this team in touches. They brought in Carlos Hyde via trade and while you may think he is a lock to be the early-down back, Duke can handle a three-down workload as we saw in college when he touched the ball 22 times per game. He comes with both risk and upside, making him a worthwhile mid-round pick.With the display Derrick Henry put on at the end of the season, there is no chance Lewis leads the Titans' backfield this year unless Henry's injury is a bigger deal that it currently appears. That isn't to say Lewis won't have games where he splashes but predicting which week it will be is a difficult task so he should merely be thought of as a handcuff.
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
Moves up a few spots if HOU doesn't add a legit RB challenger via trade or a cut-casualty - moves down a few spots if they do 
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
I'm not sure yet what to do with Duke. All I know is he needs to be drafted/owned with all of Houston's running backs dead. 
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
I already had Duke in my top 25 after being traded to Houston, with the Lamar Miller injury he has the potential to be a top 10 RB, but I can't draft him before the 6th round. I expect he can carry the workload and last 16 games that is why I have him ranked above the rest of the RB's in tier 3, but he has no chance of entering tier two before the season starts. 
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Johnson's value has changed drastically this preseason, first with the move to the Texans and now with Lamar Miller's (likely) torn ACL. Houston will surely add running back depth at this point, but Johnson is big enough to handle an every-down workload. Particularly in PPR or 0.5 PPR formats, he should be drafted as a rock solid RB2. 
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
 Lewis is a great handcuff and may have some standalone value some weeks as the third down back in games where the Titans are likely to be trailing early and often.
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
Duke Johnson has been traded from the Browns to the Texans...which is great for his fantasy outlook. The Browns never used him enough, and given what the Texans gave up to get him, I expect them to give him a decent role in the offense. The Texans line is bad, but Duke doesn't get his value on the ground. He'll be the team's new third down back, and they should find themselves trailing more than they did last season.I'm a firm believer that the Titans are finally going to unleash Derrick Henry this season. Because of this, I'm not likely to draft Dion Lewis. I don't expect him to be someone you can rely on starting while Henry is healthy...and Henry has been one of the healthiest running backs in his career. Lewis averaged 12.4 carries per game over the first 9 weeks of the season...then 6.1 carries per game over the final 7 weeks. The Titans finished the season 5-0 in games where they gave Henry more than 16 carries, and they have indicated all offseason that they want to build the offense around him. Lewis is purely a handcuff if Henry where to go down.
