Notes for Player Combination
 
Expert 
Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
 Perine will compete with Frank Gore for the backup role in New York, and he's got a shot to earn weekly snaps if he wins the job. Perine is dealing with an ankle issue that's not expected to be serious, and he's worth a pickup in very deep leagues.
Draft Engine
Draft Engine
Duke Johnson's pass-catching role is expected to be similar to what it's been in recent years, even with David Johnson having been acquired in a trade that sent DeAndre Hopkins to Arizona. Duke Johnson's fantasy upside is limited outside of PPR leagues. 
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
It's frustrating how a back who consistently has amazing metrics in Duke Johnson continually falls behind mediocre runners like Carlos Hyde. That certainly won't change this year either, with David Johnson the clear lead back and likely to steal some receptions as well. If David stays healthy all season there's little chance Duke is even startable. If the injury-prone DJ goes down though, it could be open season for the former Brown. I like him as a handcuff and desperation PPR starter but little else as a borderline RB3 finish is likely in his future.With Frank Gore making the short trip from Buffalo to New York, Lamical Perine takes a large dive in value. No longer a clear backup to Le'Veon Bell, he's now little more than an afterthought with the possibility of occasional third down work if his training camp ankle injury recovers quickly.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Despite continually being one of the most efficient running backs in football, it seems there's no head coach who wants to give Johnson his shot at a bigger role. This will be his sixth season in the NFL and he's never topped 104 carries in a season despite the fact that he's averaged 4.5 yards per carry (4.91 over the last four years) over his career. Now having to deal with David Johnson, whose best attribute is catching passes out of the backfield, it's unlikely Duke has any value with David healthy. However, it needs to be stated that David has played just 22 full games over the last three years and will be 29 years old at the end of the season. Should he miss time, Duke might get the opportunity that we've been waiting for. 
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
Hopes were high for Johnson when he arrived in Houston last year but he never managed to live up to expectations. Now, it looks like he'll be playing second fiddle once again with David Johnson coming in from Arizona. In PPR Johnson has some upside but he's unlikely to be a reliable starter. 
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Johnson is a fine running back who is always efficient, and yet never earns a large role with his team. He took a back seat to Carlos Hyde last year and now has to contend with David Johnson, a far superior pass-catching back to Hyde. In other words, if Duke Johnson didn't carve out a big role last year, it's tough to see him carving out one this year. He's a high-end handcuff option, but don't expect him to have much independent value absent an injury to David Johnson. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
With the addition of David Johnson, there are a lot of unknowns here in Houston and this backfield. Duke should remain the pass-catching specialist, while David carries the ball primarily in-between the tackles. If we see David struggle again with injury though, Duke could be in line for a huge workload.Perine was looking like a sneaky target late in Dynasty drafts until the Jets signed Frank Gore. Now, Perine will only see a few touches per game and he's not someone you should consider in any format. If you're in a deep Dynasty league, he's fine to stash at the bottom of your bench for next year if the Jets move on from Le'Veon Bell though.

David Johnson now overlaps his receiving role... ugh.
