The 1B to Bell's 1A, Johnson has a phenomenal matchup in Week 1 against the Lions. They allowed 11 of 16 running backs to reach double digit fantasy points last year, and lost linebacker DeAndre Levy this offseason. They'll reportedly lean on rookie Jarrad Davis at middle linebacker, and it may take time for him to adjust to the speed of the NFL game. You don't need me to tell you why you're starting Johnson.

David Johnson had 15 straight games to open the season with 100 yards from scrimmage and he should be poised for a big start to the 2017 season as well.The Cowboys were 10th against fantasy receivers last year, but they have a remade secondary, so that ranking is not very relevant this year.
