Phillip Lindsay + Ingram + No QB + Gross overall offense = no, thanks.

Johnson's value is going to depend on whether the Texans repair their relationship with DeShaun Watson or find a suitable replacement. Johnson is in the last year of his deal and is probably no better than a low-end RB3.

With the Texans in massive cap trouble, David Johnson might find himself out the door in Houston as $6 million can be saved by moving him on. The more likely outcome for the new coaching staff though if that they release Duke Johnson's non-guaranteed $5 million and hand David the reigns. He looked very good when given the full workload towards the end of the year and seems to have some juice left. It's unlikely the Texans bring in a rookie or expensive veteran either so the only scare for DJ is an effective change-of-pace back like Phillip Lindsay. Of course, if Deshaun Watson forces his way out the door and the Texans are forced to go full rebuild, Johnson could be in big trouble. He's a risk, but has the short term upside worth taking if your competing in dynasty right now.
