Although he's the RB10 who hasn't missed a game after a wrist injury ended his 2017, Johnson has disappointed considered his immense draft cost. Dragged down by Arizona's NFL-worst defense, he's averaging 3.6 yards per run with only 47 catches and one 100-yard rushing output. He still rode 25 touches to 112 yards and a touchdown in Week 4 against the Seahawks, who have surrendered 4.7 yards per carry and the fourth-most receptions (97) to running backs. They could also give Bobby Wagner and Co. a lighter workload in preparation for their Wild Card Weekend road game, so Johnson remains a high-end RB2 despite his underwhelming ceiling.

Seattle may rest some starters in the second half, which gives Johnson a chance to have a solid fantasy game in Week 17.
