RB - HOU
Expert NoteView More Notes
Johnson has never been efficient in terms of yards per carry, but has always caught enough passes and rumbled into the end zone enough to be a fantasy star. He was actually on track to finish as a top 10 fantasy back again last year prior to his injury so the upside still remains. With that said, back injuries and running backs don't mix so unless you can get Johnson at a discount, you'd be better off avoiding him this season.

David Johnson: 'I like the pressure. It makes me want to compete more.'
Texan's newly acquired running back David Johnson is not worried about fans' concerns that he won't be able to fill the void left by superstar wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, saying “I like the pressure. It makes me want to compete more."
Johnson landed in Houston after a blockbuster trade sent DeAndre Hopkins to the Cardinals in March. Johnson, coming off three less-than-impressive seasons in Arizona where he averaged 3.7 yards per carry, doesn't appear to have any doubts in his own skillset. He should assume the top position in a shallow running back corps, with the only other notable name being Duke Johnson. If David Johnson's injuries are truly behind him, he should have no issues getting the lion's share of touches in an explosive offense led by Deshaun Watson. Johnson is ranked as our 20th overall running back and can potentially be one of the only bellcow backs you'll be able to get after the first few rounds.
