ATL worst Fantasy team in NFC vs RBs

Johnson has fielded 63 touches over the last three games. The traffic netted him just 212 yards and no touchdowns. Volume and name recognition are keeping him in the RB1 conversation. For this week, add a favorable matchup to that list. Only the Bengals and Chiefs have ceded more PPR points to running backs than the Falcons, who have allowed an NFL-high 97 catches to the position. Johnson has mustered just 48 combined receiving yards over the last four games, but the Cardinals should find more ways to at least drag him to 100 total yards on another 20-plus touches. He could at least replicate a Week 14 performance (eight catches for 12 yards) that will be used as Exhibit A in all offseason cases against PPR formats.

Atlanta is just 27th against fantasy running backs, Johnson is a low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 this week in Atlanta.

ARI offensive optimism has vanished in recent weeks - DJ scoreless in 4 straight, just RB33 in FAN PPG past 3 weeks - 10th-easiest ROS schedule at RB (Weeks 15-16 = @ATL, LAR)
