What You Need to Know:
Draft Sharks Bottom Line:
Johnson was a nice fantasy asset last year, finishing top 17 in points per game across scoring formats.
His situation looks much shakier heading into 2021, though. He’s playing under new HC David Culley and will face added competition from arrivals Phillip Lindsay and Mark Ingram. Plus, Houston’s offense figures to struggle without QB Deshaun Watson for part or all of the season.
Johnson could still provide RB3 or flex value if he remains the backfield’s lead ball-carrier and pass-catcher. But if this turns into a 3-man committee, you’ll want to stay away.
