D'Ernest Johnson sees two carries in Week 15

D'Ernest Johnson carried the ball twice for five yards and was not targeted in the passing game in a 23-7 loss to the Ravens in Week 15.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson continues to operate as the team's No. 2 running back, but that role didn't amount to much in a game where the Jaguars leaned heavily on their passing attack. Johnson remains a quality handcuff in fantasy heading into a Week 16 game against the Buccaneers.

D'Ernest Johnson (knee) remains limited Thursday

Jacksonville Jaguars RB D'Ernest Johnson was limited for the second practice in a row to open the week with a knee injury.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson was limited all week last week with a knee injury but still played. A similar trajectory could be expected for Week 15. Since the Jags' Week 9 bye, Johnson has played 20-40% of the team's snaps, seeing an increased role compared to the start of the season. However, he's still not involved enough to be a startable fantasy asset (27 touches over his last four games).
