Kerryon Johnson (knee) is going to IR

Kerryon Johnson is being placed on IR after undergoing surgery on his knee today. The Lions are hoping Johnson will return to play this season.

Fantasy Impact

Can we say “running back by committee?” Ty Johnson should be the first priority for all waiver claims and situation-dependent, owners should use 50%+ of their FAAB. J.D. McKissic would warrant 10-20% of FAAB. Please note, this news makes a trade or bringing back C.J. Anderson more of a reality for the Lions.

Kerryon Johnson expects to miss some time

Kerryon Johnson (knee) is expected to miss time and is considered week to week.

Fantasy Impact

There are a few directions the Lions might go with their backfield while Johnson is out. The first option would be Ty Johnson and J.D. McKissic to share the backfield duties. Another idea that makes sense is to bring back C.J. Anderson. Finally, Detroit could trade for a running back like Kenyan Drake.

Kerryon Johnson goes for 61 yards and a score

Kerryon Johnson rushed 13 times for 34 yards and a touchdown, adding two receptions for 27 yards in the Lions’ 23-22 loss to the Packers on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Though Johnson continues to operate as the bellcow, his efficiency continues to leave fantasy owners wanting more. He racked up only 61 yards, but his touchdown made the performance worthwhile. Next up, he'll take on Minnesota in Week 7.

Kerryon Johnson throttles Chiefs for 157 yards

Kerryon Johnson rushed 26 times for 125 yards, adding two receptions for 32 yards in the Lions’ 34-30 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

A week after setting a career high in carries with 20, Johnson was handed the ball 26 times against the Chiefs. He took those carries for 125 and ultimately finished the game with 157 scrimmage yards. It would have been nice to see him cross the goal line, but the yardage was impressive, nonetheless.
