DJ was a top 12 running back in 15 of the 16 weeks he played last season. He was also the top fantasy performer by leaps and bounds. With all of that being said, he cannot continue to sustain this type of usage and remain as effective. In fact, he took a significant step backward over the second half of the season. Add in the almost certain touchdown regression and he takes a back seat to Bell who is #1.

David Johnson to see 30 touches per game in 2017?

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians told the media "he'd like to get" running back David Johnson at least 30 touches per game in 2017 "due to the amount of offense he can produce."

Fantasy Impact

Johnson, who is already considered the top fantasy running back by most experts, could see his fantasy value increase even more for the 2017 season. Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians told the media Wednesday that he expects to give the versatile rusher at least 30 touches per game in the upcoming campaign. Last season, his second year as a pro, Johnson averaged 23.3 TPG and led the NFL with 2,113 total yards from scrimmage. Expect Johnson to be a top five pick in 2017 fantasy drafts.
