Kerryon Johnson scores in loss

Kerryon Johnson carried 11 times for 53 yards and a touchdown in the Lions’ 23-20 loss to the Packers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson saw 11 touches for the second week in a row after returning from IR. He'll end the season with a disappointing final stat line, playing behind a poor offensive line and spending much of the season injured.

Kerryon Johnson logs 11 touches in return from IR

Kerryon Johnson carried 10 times for 42 yards, adding a one-yard reception in the Lions’ 27-17 loss to the Broncos on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson was activated from the IR this week and returned to action Sunday. He was promised a healthy amount of carries from the coaching staff, though he rushed only two more times than Bo Scarborough. The Wayward Son has a chance to finish 2019 strong in Week 17 against Green Bay, where his workload could be increased.

Kerryon Johnson to see his 'full share of carries' in Week 16

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Lions RB Kerryon Johnson is not expected to start in Week 16.

Fantasy Impact

While Rapoport is reporting that Johnson "may not come out as the starter," the recently activated (from IR) rusher is fully "expected to get his full share of carries" in Sunday's matchup at the Broncos. However, Rapoport did note that Johnson could be sharing the workload with Bo Scarbrough, which could limit the returning starter's upside. Still, getting a Denver defense that has allowed an enemy back to score or accumulate 114 total yards in three of their past five games, Johnson could bring scoring upside for Week 16. The Lions may want Johnson to finish the year on a positive note and enter the offseason with confidence, so he could be busy on Sunday, especially if Matt Patricia wants to protect David Blough from a menacing Denver front seven.

Kerryon Johnson (knee) activated off the IR

Kerryon Johnson (knee) was activated off the injured reserve Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson has been out since Week 7 as he has been recovering from knee surgery. He could take over as the lead back if Bo Scarbrough (ribs) is ruled out for a Week 16. Johnson will most likely be eased into action and is a risky play for Week 16. He will most likely be in a committee with Ty Johnson, JD McKissic and Bo Scarbrough (if active).

Kerryon Johnson (knee) returned to practice Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson is on IR and therefore can't return until Week 16. Even if he does make it back this season he'll be impossible to trust for fantasy purposes.
