Expert Note

Johnson looked surprisingly adequate after being re-signed by the Cardinals, rushing for 44 yards on 11 carries and looking far more effective than Kerwynn Williams. Bruce Arians said this week that he wants and expects Johnson to get the ball more in Week 3 against the Cowboys, would could mean that the veteran is headed toward a 20-touch game. The Cowboys generally limit opposing running backs, but they do so mostly through dominating the time of possession and getting out to leads, rather than the strength of their rushing defense. If the Cardinals can stay in the game, Johnson will likely have plenty of opportunities to get the rock, and should get the goal-line carries. Given Williams' presence, Johnson is hardly a strong option, but he makes a desperation RB3 play.

Chris Johnson leads committee in Cardinals win

Chris Johnson carried the ball 11 times for 44 yards to lead the Cardinals in carries and rushing yards against the Colts. His longest run went for 11 yards and he did not find the end zone. Johnson was re-signed after being cut by the team before the season after the injury to David Johnson.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson looked like the lead back over Kerwynn Williams today and is worth an add if you need RB help. Don't expect David Johnson numbers but hope for some goal line carries.
