Expert 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Denver has given up 903 yards rushing in 6 games to fantasy running backs, Johnson should be a solid RB1 option against a weak Broncos run defense. The Texans are 12th against fantasy backs, Yeldon has RB2 / Flex appeal in a tough matchup.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
 Yeldon has been removed from the injury report so he is good to go Sunday versus the Texans. The issue, of course, if that Carlos Hyde will be joining the fray so it is difficult to predict what kind of workload he will have. Chances are, however, it will be enough to warrant a flex play.
Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
 Leonard Fournette looks likely to again sit out in Week 7, which means that Yeldon will once again serve as the Jags' clear lead back. Whenever Fournette is out, Yeldon is always a decent bet to approach 100 yards from scrimmage and find the end zone, so he's a borderline RB1 this week against a middle-of-the-road Texans D.
Tim McCullough
FantasyPros
 Injury-Based Fantasy Advice - SIT - Yeldon is not practicing this week as he deals with foot and ankle injuries. With Fournette also out, the Jaguars backfield is looking awfully thin.
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
While Johnson is averaging a microscopic 3.2 yards per carry and 72 total yards per game, he has also found pay dirt in each of Arizona's last four games. This is his chance to do much more. The Broncos are last in rushing defense after allowing 200-yard rushers (Isaiah Crowell and Todd Gurley) in consecutive weeks. He has handled at least 20 touches in the last three games, and that workload should easily lead him to triple-digit yardage and another end-zone visit or two on Thursday night.
