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.

Duke Johnson Jr. paces Miami backfield in yards

Dolphins running back Duke Johnson Jr. rushed 13 times for 39 yards against the Saints on Monday night.

Fantasy Impact

Both Johnson and Phillip Lindsay saw 13 carries, but the former finished with a slight edge in terms of yardage. Going forward, Johnson should be viewed as a low-end RB3. He opposes a strong Titans front in Week 17.

Duke Johnson Jr. explodes for 127 yards and two touchdowns

Dolphins running back Duke Johnson Jr. excelled on Sunday, totaling 107 rushing yards, 20 receiving yards, and two touchdowns against the Jets.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson came out of nowhere against New York. Prior to Sunday, he had just 18 yards through one game this season. Likely not a popular name in fantasy leagues this week, Johnson could be an intriguing waiver wire option. Still, considering the flukiness of this situation, fantasy managers need to take a step back and resist the temptation to deploy Johnson in lineups next week. He very well could cede rushing work to Myles Gaskin against the Saints in Week 16.
