When you see a 25-year-old running back getting 25.8 combined carries/targets, it's a given to put him as a clear-cut top player, especially when it's a player as talented as Johnson. His goal for this next season is set at 1,000 rushing and receiving yards, and it's well within the realm of possibilities.

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.
