Will Johnson be traded before the start of the season? He's continually said he'd like to be, though the Browns aren't granting him his wish. Once Freddie Kitchens took over as the offensive coordinator last year, Johnson was much more involved in the passing game, totaling 33 targets in the final eight games. He didn't top four carries in any of those games, which definitely limits his ceiling. When drafting Johnson, your best scenario is him being traded to a team with a questionable starter in place. Outside of that, he's in Nyheim Hines/Dion Lewis territory.

Duke Johnson still wants to be traded

Browns RB Duke Johnson confirmed to reporters that he still wants to be traded out of Cleveland.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson requested a trade months ago, and he reaffirmed his feelings to reporters at Browns minicamp. He made it clear, however, that he would come to work and do his job without being a distraction for as long as he was wearing brown and orange. Cleveland picked up Kareem Hunt in the offseason to pair with projected starter Nick Chubb, leaving Johnson to vie for scraps after Hunt serves his eight-game suspension. With so many elite options on the offensive side of the ball, the Browns could certainly afford to trade Johnson for future draft picks or defensive help. Teams who could use a pass-catching specialist like Johnson include the Buccaneers, Jaguars, and Texans. Johnson was the overall RB11 in 2017 in PPR formats, and he could be a valuable late-round selection in fantasy drafts if he lands in the right situation.
