DET faced a ARI team with the fastest pace in Week 1 but will now play an LAC offense that ran the 4th-slowest last week, per @fboutsiders

The Chargers struggled to stop RB Marlon Mack last week, but the Colts have a much better offensive line than the Lions. Johnson is a low-upside RB2 in a crowded Lions backfield.Jones struggled on the road against a tough Bears D and he has another tough matchup at home this week. He is a low-upside flex option against the Vikings D.
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
The Lions were back to struggling in the run game last week, but Johnson faces a Chargers defense that was decimated by the running game of Indianapolis last week. Marlon Mack finished with 174 rushing yards, so Johnson will try to find the same type of success this week.Jones struggled to find room running the ball against Chicago, and the same may happen against a Vikings defense that completely shut down Atlanta's running attack. Jones could have had a screen play go the distance last week if the center left a half step sooner, so he possesses value even against stout run defenses. LaFleur likely spent the extra preparation days figuring out how to get his playmakers the football in space, and Jones is one of those playmakers.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
The timeshare between Johnson and Anderson was closer than most thought it'd be in Week 1, as Johnson tallied 48 snaps to Anderson's 24 snaps. Unfortunately, neither of them were able to accumulate much against a Cardinals defense that was abused against the run last year. Johnson forced four missed tackles while Anderson had none, so maybe that timeshare shrinks? The Chargers losing Derwin James clearly affected their defense, as they allowed Marlon Mack to destroy them for 174 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries. That's also what happens when you are lacking interior linemen. They lost Corey Liuget this offseason, which hurt, and while they drafted Jerry Tillery in the first round, he played just 21 snaps in the first game and struggled against the run. The fact that the Lions are underdogs bodes well for Johnson, as he's the preferred passing-down option. While it's a timeshare, it's still a 65/35 split at worst, and we just witnessed Mack dominate this defense on 48 snaps last week. Johnson should remain in lineups as a relatively safe RB2.
