Now that Steve Wilks is out of town, maybe we'll get back to the normally scheduled programming with Johnson. The air-raid offense that new coach Kliff Kingsbury figures to bring to the Cardinals should give Johnson a lot more work in the passing game. While at Texas Tech, Kingsbury passed the ball on 65 percent of their plays. By comparison, there were just two teams in the NFL who hit that number in 2018. With Kyler Murray presenting elusiveness, it should only help create lanes for Johnson, even if his offensive line is still weak.

David Johnson excited for more shotgun snaps in 2019

David Johnson is looking forward to playing more snaps in the shotgun formation this upcoming season.

Fantasy Impact

Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury has yet to talk too much about his offensive plans this season but has mentioned a desire to use shotgun more often. Johnson is excited about it, saying he ran out of the shotgun in college. However, the key for DJ's fantasy season will be how involved he is as a pass catcher. We're guessing Kingsbury will use him in that role.
