Johnson has fielded 63 touches over the last three games. The traffic netted him just 212 yards and no touchdowns. Volume and name recognition are keeping him in the RB1 conversation. For this week, add a favorable matchup to that list. Only the Bengals and Chiefs have ceded more PPR points to running backs than the Falcons, who have allowed an NFL-high 97 catches to the position. Johnson has mustered just 48 combined receiving yards over the last four games, but the Cardinals should find more ways to at least drag him to 100 total yards on another 20-plus touches. He could at least replicate a Week 14 performance (eight catches for 12 yards) that will be used as Exhibit A in all offseason cases against PPR formats.

David Johnson held to 61 scoreless yards in Week 14

David Johnson rushed 15 times for 49 yards and caught eight passes for 12 yards in Arizona's 17-3 Week 14 loss to Detroit.

Fantasy Impact

This marks four straight games without a TD for DJ. The Cardinals offense wasn't able to do anything today, and Johnson's lackluster game unfortunately came in the first round of the fantasy playoffs. His performance this year should serve as a reminder that playing in a good offense matters somewhat for RBs in fantasy.
