Duke Johnson Jr. retiring from NFL after eight seasons

Veteran RB Duke Johnson Jr. has announced his retirement from the NFL after playing eight seasons for four teams.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson was a third-round pick by the Cleveland Browns in the 2015 NFL Draft out of the University of Miami (FL). Serving as a dual threat in both the passing game and receiving game, Johnson averaged 516 receiving yards and 855 scrimmage yards over his first five seasons. He will end his career with 5,135 scrimmage yards and 23 total TDs between the Browns, Houston Texans, Miami Dolphins, and Buffalo Bills.

Duke Johnson released by Bills

The Buffalo Bills released veteran RB Duke Johnson, but they have interest in bringing him back to their practice squad if he does not sign with another team.

Fantasy Impact

The seven-year veteran played five games for the Dolphins in 2021 and had previously been with Houston and Cleveland. He has tallied 2,261 rushing yards with three TD in his career but offers no value in fantasy formats.

Duke Johnson Jr. impresses with heavy workload in Week 18

Dolphins running back Duke Johnson Jr. rushed 25 times for 117 yards and a score against the Patriots during Sunday's regular-season finale. He also hauled in his lone target for an additional five yards through the air.

Fantasy Impact

After spending most of the season in free agency, Johnson joined the Dolphins and immediately indicated that he could fill Miami's lead back role. It will be interesting to see what type of interest he generates on the open market this offseason.

Duke Johnson Jr. registers just nine touches

Dolphins running back Duke Johnson Jr. rushed just seven times for 49 yards in Week 17. He also hauled in two of three targets for an additional 16 yards through the air.

Fantasy Impact

Although Johnson has led Miami's backfield for each of the last three games, he hasn't had a strong fantasy performance since his two-touchdown showing in Week 15. Fantasy managers should view the 28-year-old as a high-end RB4 against the Patriots next Sunday.
