We all know Johnson's struggled to stay on the field over his first two seasons, and it led the Lions to draft D'Andre Swift at the top of the second round. You don't draft a running back at the top of the second round to not use him. Johnson's skillset clashes with that of Swift, so it's unlikely he sees more than 10-12 touches per game.

Kerryon Johnson has new competition in the form of D'Andre Swift

The Lions selected D'Andre Swift with the third pick in the second round. Swift, from Georgia, was regarded by many to be one of the best backs in the 2020 Draft.

Fantasy Impact

Over his first two seasons Kerryon Johnson averaged 15.2 touches per game, a figure that is almost certainly to decrease with the presence of D'Andre Swift. Johnson may very well end up with a similar stat-line by the conclusion of the 2020, compared to what he put up in his first two seasons; however, for fantasy owners his production will likely be stretched over the course of the season, instead of being compressed into eight to 10 games. Fans will have to keep an eye on the rumours leading into the new season to see if they can gain any insight into what the potential work distribution could look like in this new and improved backfield.
