Some are clamoring that Johnson should even be the top overall pick. Now, you shouldn't go that far because his touchdown rate from 2016 is entirely unsustainable, but he is without question the workhorse in Arizona and ought to bounce back to a high-end RB1 season in 2018.

David Johnson officially a holdout

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson failed to report for the beginning of the team's mandatory minicamp and is reportedly seeking a new contract, per Adam Schefter, who tweeted "The two sides have been in discussions regarding a new contract and are hopeful a new deal will be reached before the start of the season."

Fantasy Impact

Johnson is entering the final year of his rookie contract and is only slated to earn $1.882 million in 2018. After missing almost the entire 2017 season, Johnson is trying to lock-up a lucrative, long-term deal with guaranteed money, which isn't a huge surprise. Hopefully, both sides will make progress towards a resolution and Johnson, who is reportedly healthy and gunning for a 1,000/1,000 yard season, will be ready to roll for Week 1. The sooner Johnson and the Cardinals can work out a deal, the better it will be for all involved, as Johnson has shown that he's one of the best young running backs in the game and certainly worthy of top-5 fantasy consideration in every format.
