FantasyPros
With Chase Edmonds back in the fold last week, the snap count was Drake 38, Johnson 21, Edmonds 11. The touch count went Drake 14, Johnson 5, Edmonds 1. While it's still Drake leading the way, the timeshare is a real thing. Against the Browns, there hasn't been a whole lot of running back touches to go around, as the average has been 26.3 per game. Those touches have been pretty profitable, as they've allowed 4.71 yards per carry and 6.99 yards per target, both of which are in the bottom-10 in the league. The 144.2 total yards per game they've allowed to running backs ranks as the 11th-most, though they've only allowed 10 total touchdowns through 13 games, or one every 34.2 touches. If we knew this timeshare would persist as it were in Week 14, Drake would be able to be played as a high-end RB3 who'd likely wind-up with 16 touches, but we've now seen Johnson's role grow as he gets healthier, going from just eight snaps in Week 11, to 15 snaps in Week 13, to 21 snaps in Week 14. It feels like a situation that's going to only get messier, making Drake a mid-to-low-end RB3 who's likely to wind-up in the 12-15 touch range. 
Derek Lofland

The Browns are 18th against fantasy running backs, Drake has emerged as the lead back in Arizona to close the season and he is a flex option at home.
