David Johnson totals five touches in Week 14, finds the end zone

David Johnson rushed three times for 19 yards in the Cardinals' Week 14 loss to the Steelers, adding two receptions for 34 yards and a score.

Fantasy Impact

This was DJ's first touchdown since Week 6. That's the good news. The bad news is he was out-carried by Kenyan Drake 11-3 and remains the backup in Arizona. He'll be very hard to trust for fantasy purposes in Week 15 against the Browns.

David Johnson receives just four carries in Week 13

David Johnson rushed four times for 15 yards and caught two passes for nine yards in the Cardinals' 34-7 Week 13 loss to the Rams.

Fantasy Impact

DJ was out touched 15-6 by Kenyan Drake and is clearly operating as the team's backup running back right now. He's impossible to trust in fantasy lineups next week against the Steelers.

David Johnson doesn't touch the ball in Week 11 loss

David Johnson didn't register a touch in the Cardinals' 36-26 Week 11 loss to the 49ers.

Fantasy Impact

There was a report before the game that Kenyan Drake would be Arizona's starter, but we still didn't expect Johnson to go without a touch. He's clearly injured right now so it's a surprise he was even active for this one. DJ will have the team's Week 12 bye to try and get healthy.

David Johnson flops in Week 10

David Johnson rushed five times for two yards and caught one pass for eight yards in the Cardinals' 30-27 Week 10 loss to the Bucs.

Fantasy Impact

He also lost a fumble in what was simply a disastrous fantasy performance. However, it didn't seem as if Johnson was fully healthy. Perhaps he should've sat out another week. We'll have to monitor his practice reports in the coming days but Week 11 present a tough matchup against the 49ers.

David Johnson (ankle) does not carry an injury designation

David Johnson (ankle) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game in Tampa Bay.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson will return after missing the past two weeks due to a left ankle injury. He does have Kenyan Drake competing for touches after the former Dolphin blew up for 162 scrimmage yards last Thursday against the 49ers. Johnson is a borderline RB2 against a tough Buccaneers run defense.
