Johnson has totaled in-between 7-10 touches in each of the last four games, making him a weak flex option most weeks. He'll have a bigger role in games they fall behind, as his 22 targets easily trump Hyde's nine targets, but knowing they're almost a full touchdown favorite, this is not a Johnson gamescript.
