Some have Johnson as high as No. 1 in our consensus rankings, but I'd urge against drafting him with a top-three pick. Did you know that 73.3 percent (22-of-30) of top-six running backs over the last six years have come from top-12 scoring offenses? I'd argue that the Cardinals would likely be a bottom-10 scoring offense in 2018, and there's been just three running backs who have overcome that to become a top-six running back over the last six years. Johnson scored 20 touchdowns in his magical 2016 season, something that's not repeatable. It's also worth noting that since Week 6 of 2016, he's averaged just 3.63 yards per carry on 191 carries. He's still worth a mid-first-round pick, but I'd take someone in a better offense over him.

David Johnson cleared for offseason workouts

Around the NFL is reporting Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) has been medically cleared for offseason workouts.

Fantasy Impact

Per NFL.com writer Kevin Patra, Johnson was in attendance for the start of the Cardinals' offseason workouts that began Tuesday after missing all but one game in the 2017 season with a wrist injury. Barring a setback, he will be a full-go for the duration of the team's offseason program. Johnson is primed to return to the high-end RB1 tier entering 2018 fantasy draft season.
