Duke Johnson catches five passes out of the backfield

Duke Johnson gained 11 yards on his lone rushing attempt while making five catches for 23 yards on eight targets as a receiver Sunday in Houston’s Divisional Round loss to Kansas City by a 51-31 score.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson was needed in the second half as the Texans turned to a pass-heavy offense as they fell behind the Chiefs in the second quarter. The veteran running back seems to have found a role on passing downs but may see more action in 2020 if Carlos Hyde does not return.

Duke Johnson has 68 yards of total offense in win

Duke Johnson rushed three times for 38 yards and caught all three of his targets for 30 yards in the Texans' Wild Card win over the Bills by a 22-19 score.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson once again took a backseat to lead back Carlos Hyde but had one of the biggest plays of the game with a clutch 18-yard catch on 3rd-and-18 in overtime. Johnson will continue in his backup role in the Divisional Round against either Chiefs or the Ravens.

Duke Johnson scores a TD in Week 17 loss

Duke Johnson rushed four times for 12 yards and a touchdown while also catching 5-of-6 targets for 45 yards in Houston's Week 17 loss to the Titans.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson saw an increase in touches on Sunday as the Texans decided to rest many of their regular players as they had nothing to play for in Week 17. Look for Johnson to move back to a limited role in the Wild Card matchup against Buffalo.

Duke Johnson sees just two carries in Week 16 win

Duke Johnson rushed twice for four yards and caught one pass on four targets for an additional 12 yards in Houston's Week 16 win over the Bucs.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson had a limited role once again on Saturday as the team relies on Carlos Hyde as their workhorse at running back. Johnson should only be owned in fantasy as a handcuff in case of an injury to Hyde.

Duke Johnson does not have a big role in win on Sunday

Duke Johnson rushed twice for four yards and caught two of three targets for 19 additional yards on Sunday as the Texans beat the Titans by a 24-21 score.

Fantasy Impact

With Carlos Hyde once again seeing the bulk of the workload at running back for the Texans, Johnson only saw the ball four times. The veteran running back should only be owned by owners as a handcuff as he does not see enough volume.
