David Johnson officially active for Week 6

David Johnson (back) is listed as active for Arizona's Week 6 game against the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact

There were doubts about Johnson's status all week, but he will suit up for Sunday's game after going through a pregame evaluation. It's unclear what volume Johnson will receive in this game, and Chase Edmonds will likely see some touches as well.

David Johnson expected to play Week 6

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting Cardinals RB David Johnson (back) is expected to play in Week 6.

Fantasy Impact

While there was some question about Johnson's playing status for Sunday's matchup with the Falcons, it looks like he will be a go, barring a setback leading up to kickoff. However, Johnson is dealing with a back injury, which could flare up at any time, which means Chase Edmonds could be busier than usual. Still, with Johnson playing, Edmonds is a risky fantasy option as his role is extremely injury-dependent.

David Johnson (back) questionable for Week 6

David Johnson (back) was a limited practice participant Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson said he's fine to play, but Cardinals Head Coach Kliff Kingsbury labeled the star running back as a game-time decision. Monitor his status around 90 minutes before Sunday's 4:05 P.M. ET kickoff. If Johnson is unable to go, Chase Edmonds would lead the Cardinals backfield Week 6 against the Falcons.

David Johnson misses practice again Thursday

Cardinals running back David Johnson did not practice for the second straight day on Thursday due to a back injury, according to the team's official injury report.

Fantasy Impact

That Johnson has been missing practice rather than being limited is concerning, but he will have one more chance on Friday to get onto the practice field before the team releases their official injury designations. Monitor his status heading into the weekend. If he is unable to go, Chase Edmunds figures to see more opportunities in the Arizona backfield.

David Johnson (back) misses practice Wednesday

David Johnson (back) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson was contained to working out on a side field. He had 20 touches for 156 yards from scrimmage while playing through a back injury Week 5 in Cincinnati. Johnson may remain out of practice this week to avoid any unnecessary setback with his health. Continue to monitor his practice participation on Thursday and Friday. If David Johnson were to miss Week 6, Chase Edmonds would lead the Cardinals backfield.
