After LeGarrette Blount got stuffed twice at the goal line, Detroit put Johnson on the field. He leaped into the end zone. It's almost like the rookie is ridiculously better at running the football. He even added six catches and a receiving touchdown despite Theo Riddick also playing in a 12-point loss. Maybe he has finally arrived. Or maybe he just benefited from Detroit running 72 plays. He nevertheless proved himself against a tough opponent (Chicago), so treat Johnson as an upper-level RB2 against a Panthers defense allowing 4.4 yards per carry.

Kerryon Johnson scores twice in Week 10

Kerryon Johnson had 14 carries for 51 yards and scored from one-yard out in the second quarter. He also had six receptions for 38 yards and reached the end zone on a 13-yard swing pass from Matthew Stafford in the fourth quarter. Johnson did have a fumble.

Fantasy Impact

LeGarrette Blount was given back-to-back goal-line carries that he failed to convert before Johnson leaped over the line for his first score. Johnson continues to be the best back between the 20s and maybe he will be given the first look near the goal line moving forward after Sunday's results. Johnson should start most weeks for fantasy owners.
