The Packers are 31st against fantasy running backs, Johnson is an upside RB2 play this week. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
One of the knocks I had with Johnson heading into the season was that Deshaun Watson never targeted his running backs in the passing game. With DeAndre Hopkins gone, I thought there may be a chance that changes, but it's proven to be a real issue for Johnson, who now has 20 targets and just 12 receptions through six games. Knowing he hasn't topped two receptions or 29 yards through the air in each of the last five games, there's little reason to expect it now. The Packers are a great matchup for running backs, as we've watched them average a league-high 34.8 PPR points per game, which is more than wide receviers have scored against them (32.5). They're one of just two teams who've allowed more points to running backs than wide receivers (Panthers are the other). Of the production they've allowed to the skill-position players, running backs have accounted for 44.6 percent of it. What happens when you see the Panthers or Raiders on the fantasy schedule? You get excited, right? Well, the Packers have allowed more fantasy points per opportunity than any other team in the league, as they've allowed a massive 1.14 PPR points per opportunity, something Johnson gets plenty of. The 4.79 yards per carry is high, though not massive like some teams (ranks as ninth-most), but they've allowed a touchdown every 15.7 carries. If Johnson can get targeted a bit more, the Packers have also allowed 7.56 yards and 1.94 PPR points per target to running backs, which are both near the top of the league. Johnson should be considered a rock-solid RB2 this week, but he'll have a tough time finishing as an RB1 unless he starts getting targets.
