Despite having an extremely limited role to start the season, Johnson finished as the RB18 in points per game during his rookie season. The Lions did sign C.J. Anderson, but Johnson has already shown he's able to produce with a veteran on the roster, and he's openly admitted that he doesn't want to be a 20-plus touch running back. He's not going to offer top-five upside, but Johnson should be an RB2 more often than not.

Kerryon Johnson (knee) expected to be ready for OTAs

Kerryon Johnson (knee) says he is very close to being healthy and "probably" could've played had Detroit made the playoffs this year.

Fantasy Impact

The 21-year-old rookie missed the final six games of 2018 and was ruled out for the year once the Lions were eliminated from playoff contention. The good news is Johnson should be ready to go for OTAs. Johnson rushed for 641 yards and three touchdowns in 2018. He added 213 more yards and another score through the air. His 2019 fantasy potential hinges on whether or not the Lions make him a true three-down back.
