David Johnson finishes Week 7 with just 70 total yards

David Johnson rushed 14 times for 39 yards and caught three passes for 31 yards as the Cardinals were eviscerated on Thursday Night Football, 45-10.

Fantasy Impact

Game script quickly got out of hand, but the Arizona coaching staff didn't do DJ any favors in this one. Just like they have all season, they continuously had him rush into stacked boxes, and failed to utilize him in space. The Cardinals offense is bad, but Johnson also isn't being used to the best of his abilities. The only good news is that he has a better matchup in Week 8 versus the 49ers.

David Johnson salvages fantasy day with a TD

David Johnson rushed 18 times for 55 yards and a score as the Cardinals lost to the Vikings in Week 6.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson also added 15 yards on two receptions. He's been very touchdown dependent in fantasy this year, but luckily for fantasy owners he keeps converting in the red zone. DJ now has six scores through six weeks even though he has yet to rush for more than 71 yards in a given week. The good news is Johnson gets a leaky Denver defense in Week 7.

David Johnson scores two TDs in Cards' win

David Johnson rushed 18 times for 55 yards and two touchdowns as the Cardinals beat the 49ers 28-28 in Week 5.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson added two catches for another 16 yards. It wasn't his best game, but DJ rewarded fantasy owners with the scores. He's still feeling the ill effects of playing in a weak offense. The Cardinals could help by getting him more involved as a receiver. They face the Minnesota Vikings in Week 6.

David Johnson totals 112 yards, TD in Week 4

David Johnson rushed 22 times for 71 yards and a score in Arizona's 20-17 Week 4 loss to Seattle, adding three catches for another 41 yards.

Fantasy Impact

It's the first time this season that Johnson totaled 100 yards from scrimmage. Rookie quarterback Josh Rosen wasn't perfect, but he looked better than Sam Bradford, which helped DJ's box score. Johnson will be an RB1 in Week 5 versus the 49ers.

David Johnson has day salvaged with TD

David Johnson rushed 12 times for 31 yards as the Cardinals lost to the Bears 16-14 in Week 3, adding four catches for 30 yards and a score through the air.

Fantasy Impact

DJ has yet to total more than 67 yards in a game this year. Sam Bradford has torpedoed the entire Arizona offense. Today actually got off to a good start with Bradford hitting Johnson for a 21-yard TD in the first quarter, but that was all she wrote. DJ will be a low end RB1 in Week 4 versus Seattle.
