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.

Duke Johnson catches six passes out of the backfield

Duke Johnson rushed one time for five yards and caught six of eight targets for 40 additional yards on Sunday as the Texans lost to the Broncos by a 38-24 score.

Fantasy Impact

With the Texans falling behind early, Johnson got more time on the field than usual as he was heavily involved in the passing game. Johnson does not get many carries but can have some value in deeper PPR leagues for fantasy owners.

Duke Johnson catches a TD pass in win over the Patriots

Duke Johnson rushed nine times for 36 yards and caught five passes on six targets for 54 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 28-22 win over New England.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson had a better game than the starter at running back Carlos Hyde. Johnson has been mostly been used on passing downs but may see more action after the strong game on Sunday. Johnson is worth owning in most PPR fantasy formats.

Duke Johnson sees five touches in win over the Colts

Duke Johnson rushed five times for 22 yards and caught one pass for eight yards in the Texans' Week 12 win over the Colts by a 20-17 score.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson has had a disappointing season with the Texans. He continues to play a backseat to Carlos Hyde at running back and is not seeing enough touches to be worth owning in fantasy except as a handcuff.

Duke Johnson sees eight touches in loss

Duke Johnson carried six times for 40 yards, adding two receptions for four yards in the Texans’ 41-7 blowout loss to the Ravens on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Duke didn't do too much Sunday, despite the Texans playing catchup all afternoon. Despite the emergence of Carlos Hyde, Johnson has still scored three times in his last four games, and makes a solid flex option in PPR formats. More positive gamescript will boost his fantasy value from here on out.
