D'Ernest Johnson shreds Denver with 146 yards

Cleveland Browns running back D'Ernest Johnson carried the ball 22 times for 146 yards and a touchdown in a 17-14 win over Denver in Week 7. He also added two catches for 22 yards in the win.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson was Cleveland's lead rusher on an evening where the team was without Kareem Hunt (calf) and Nick Chubb (calf). Johnson answered the bell, breaking tackles and picking up tough yards throughout the win. The veteran running back is all of a sudden on the map as a must-own in fantasy, especially if Chubb is not ready to return for Week 8's matchup against the Steelers.

D'Ernest Johnson gets one carry

Cleveland Browns running back D'Ernest Johnson gained two yards on his lone carry and added a seven-yard reception in a 37-14 loss to the Cardinals in Week 6.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson only saw two touches, despite Kareem Hunt leaving with a calf injury. Cleveland has a short turnaround as they play the Broncos on Thursday night. Both Hunt and Nick Chubb could miss that game, meaning Johnson could be the lead runner for Cleveland in Week 7.

D'Ernest Johnson shines in Week 2 of the preseason

Browns RB D'Ernest Johnson rushed four times for 36 yards and caught four passes for an additional 23 yards in Saturday's win over the Giants.

Fantasy Impact

There is a crowded backfield in Cleveland, but it seems as though the talent runs deep. Johnson looked electric on Saturday and was a do-everything back in the first half. A lot of things would have to happen for him to be fantasy relevant, but if the opportunity presented itself, Johnson has the ability to answer the call.

D'Ernest Johnson sees two carries

Cleveland Browns running back D'Ernest Johnson carried twice for six yards in a 16-6 loss to the Raiders in Week 8. He also added a five-yard catch.

Fantasy Impact

The Browns are heading into their bye in Week 9 and they expect to get Nick Chubb back for Week 10's matchup against Houston. Johnson is unlikely to see any work going forward, unless there's another injury.

D'Ernest Johnson gets one carry in win

Cleveland Browns running back D'Ernest Johnson gained three yards on his lone carry in a 37-34 win over the Bengals in Week 7.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson has seen his workload consistently dwindle since getting 13 carries in Week 4 against Dallas. He can't be trusted in fantasy, even with Nick Chubb sidelined by a knee injury.
