Will Johnson be traded before the start of the season? He's continually said he'd like to be, though the Browns aren't granting him his wish. Once Freddie Kitchens took over as the offensive coordinator last year, Johnson was much more involved in the passing game, totaling 33 targets in the final eight games. He didn't top four carries in any of those games, which definitely limits his ceiling. When drafting Johnson, your best scenario is him being traded to a team with a questionable starter in place. Outside of that, he's in Nyheim Hines/Dion Lewis territory.Some seem to believe Ballage has a shot at the starting job, but you shouldn't bank on that. Kenyan Drake is the superior running back of the two and has already shown what he's capable of on the NFL level. Even if Ballage gets into a timeshare, it's not going to be a high-scoring offense in year one under Brian Flores, so you wouldn't be getting much. He should be treated as a low-level handcuff to Drake.
