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 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 Unfortunately, Pollard's only a top-tier handcuff for fantasy this season. However, if something were to happen to Ezekiel Elliott, Pollard could be a league winner.

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 
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.We saw flash out of Pollard last year, as he posted three games with 17-plus PPR points, and that was with Ezekiel Elliott on the field. Now a year older, the Cowboys may decide to dial back the veteran's workload, which would provide Pollard with a bigger role. If Elliott were to miss time, Pollard would immediately jump into the RB1 conversation.
Derek Lofland

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.
