Ty Johnson breaks off 40-yard run in loss

Ty Johnson rushed three times for 65 yards in the Lions’ 23-20 loss to the Packers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson was out-touched by both Kerryon Johnson and Bo Scarborough. He managed his team-high rushing total thanks to a 40-yard scamper, though he's been mostly a non-factor all season.

Ty Johnson goes for 20 yards in loss

Ty Johnson rushed three times for 20 yards in the Lions’ 27-17 loss to the Broncos on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson saw a handful of touches behind Kerryon Johnson and Bo Scarborough, though he was barely seen in the contest. Encouragingly, he saw some work while JD McKissic sat on the bench, though Johnson's role on this team hasn't been beneficial to fantasy owners all season. That trend won't be bucked in Week 17.

Ty Johnson catches four passes in loss

Ty Johnson carried twice for three yards, adding four receptions for 17 yards in the Lions’ 38-17 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson played the role of pass-catching back with Wes Hills occupying the lead-back role in Sunday's loss. Even though he's lost primary duties, Johnson has stayed involved in the Lions' offense, though he's not seeing enough work to warrant fantasy consideration outside of the deepest of leagues.

Ty Johnson logs six touches in loss

Ty Johnson carried three times for 12 yards and added three receptions for 17 yards in the Lions’ 24-20 loss to the Bears on Thanksgiving.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson and J.D. McKissic each touched the ball six times, as Bo Scarborough led the way with 21. Johnson should remain on the waiver wire, as he's unlikely to see much more work than this on a regular basis.

Ty Johnson totals 21 yards

Ty Johnson carried four times for 11 yards, adding two receptions for 10 yards in the Lions’ 19-16 loss to the Redskins on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson took a backseat to Bo Scarborough, yielding 18 carries to the former Alabama back. Johnson is being phased out of the offense in favor of the more-talented Scarborough, and his involvement is likely to dwindle even more moving forward. He's totaled only nine touches over the last two weeks.
