Kerryon Johnson vultures late-game TD

Kerryon Johnson rushed twice for three yards and a TD in the Lions’ 31-24 loss to the Packers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson only logged two touches in this one, though he did turn of them into a fourth-quarter goal-line score. With D’Andre Swift back in the mix, Johnson won’t be a recommended fantasy play moving forward.

Kerryon Johnson a non-factor in Week 13 win

Kerryon Johnson rushed three times for three yards and caught two of three targets for eight yards in the Lions’ 34-30 win over the Bears on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson took a backseat to Adrian Peterson, and just a week after going for 98 yards, he posted a measly 11 yards. He'll have a great chance to bounce back in Week 14 against Green Bay if D'Andre Swift is out.

Kerryon Johnson piles plate with 98 yards

Kerryon Johnson rushed 11 times for 46 yards and caught all four of his targets for 52 yards in the Lions’ 41-25 loss to the Texans on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

He also lost a fumble. Johnson and Adrian Peterson each finished the day with 15 touches, and though the Wayward Son failed to find the end zone, he nearly doubled the yardage of his veteran teammate. Once D'Andre Swift makes his way back to the field, Johnson will be a last-gasp flex in deeper leagues. That could be as soon as next week against Chicago.

Kerryon Johnson leads backfield in touches Sunday

Kerryon Johnson rushed six times for 17 yards and caught two of five targets for 21 yards in the Lions’ 20-0 loss to the Panthers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson saw just one fewer carry than Adrian Peterson, though he saw four more targets. Johnson and Peterson are in line for a timeshare against Houston on Thursday if D’Andre Swift isn’t ready to go, and the matchup with Houston is a good one.

Kerryon Johnson logs one touch in Week 10 win

Kerryon Johnson rushed once for three yards in the Lions’ 30-27 win over the Football Team on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

In an act of unexpected genius, the Lions' coaching staff decided to give D'Andre Swift the start and the majority of backfield touches, limiting Johnson to just one carry and no receiving work. Swift went for 149 yards on 21 touches, and Johnson will be tough to trust moving forward.
