Fantasy Impact: In a surprise move, ESPN's Josh Weinfuss has Chris Johnson listed to start for the Arizona Cardinals over David Johnson in his early roster projections. Chris Johnson is the veteran of the two which head coach Bruce Arians favors. However, it is difficult to imagine him receiving more touches than budding star David Johnson, who lit the NFL on fire in his rookie year last season. For fantasy football purposes, Chris Johnson should be considered a low-end RB2 in the upcoming campaign as David Johnson is the best running back to draft out of Arizona barring any unforeseen circumstance.

As admirably as Chris Johnson may have performed last season, there is no doubt that David Johnson earned himself sole possession of the Cardinals backfield. That doesn't mean Johnson should be ADP #46 RB, however. Rather, Johnson is one of the top three or four handcuffs in football and ought to be drafted as such. If David goes down, Chris becomes a low-end RB1 or high-end RB2 right away.
