Kerryon Johnson logs four touches in loss

Kerryon Johnson rushed three times for nine yards and added a three-yard reception in the Lions’ 35-29 loss to the Saints on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson didn’t get too much work here, ceding work to Adrian Peterson and D’Andre Swift. His outlook following the Lions’ Week 5 bye is shaky, and the Wayward Son isn’t an appealing RB5.

Kerryon Johnson logs four touches in Week 3 win

Kerryon Johnson rushed three times for 16 yards and caught his lone target for 14 yards in the Lions’ 26-23 win over the Cardinals on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Aside from a Week 2 touchdown, Johnson has logged 19 inefficient touches through three weeks. He's borderline droppable in 12-team leagues.

Kerryon Johnson scores in blowout loss

Kerryon Johnson rushed eight times for 32 yards and a TD and failed to bring in his lone target in the Lions’ 42-21 loss to the Packers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson wasn’t heavily utilized, but he was still able to score the Lions’ only rushing touchdown of the game. It’s unclear what his role will be moving forward, but this three-headed RBBC is nearly impossible to predict from week-to-week. It seems safe to assume, however, that D’Andre Swift will see his workload increase as the weeks go on.

Kerryon Johnson totals 14 yards in Week 1 loss

Kerryon Johnson carried seven times for 14 yards in the Lions’ 27-23 loss to the Bears on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson played behind Adrian Peterson and saw no work in the passing game. D’Andre Swift scored the team’s only rushing TD, and Johnson truly looks to be the “Wayward Son” in this backfield, as Swift’s touches are sure to increase moving forward, and Peterson still has something left in the tank.

Kerryon Johnson listed as starting running back on Detroit's depth chart

Kerryon Johnson has been listed as the Lions starting running back on their initial depth chart, backed by No. 2 Adrian Peterson, No. 3 Ty Johnson and No. 4 D'Andre Swift/Jamal Agnew.

Fantasy Impact

Kerryon Johnson totaled 113 carries for 403 yards and three rushing touchdowns, as well as 10 catches for 127 receiving yards and one touchdown in just eight games for Detroit last season. The recent signing of Adrian Peterson and the high draft capital used on D'Andre Swift will drive Kerryon Johnson's volume down in a crowded backfield. Chicago's defense creates a tough matchup for Johnson in Week 1 so it is ideal to keep him on your bench or as a low-end RB3 if necessary.
