Basic Stats Full Player Fantasy Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Johnson played 16 games for the 1st time in 2020 after participating in only 18 over his 1st 2 seasons.
  • His carries tumbled from 14.1 per game in 2019 to just 3.3 per contest. (Johnson rushed 11.8 times per game as a 2018 rookie.) He also turned in a career low in receptions (1.2 per outing).
  • Johnson got one-third as many carries as 35-year-old Adrian Peterson and averaged just 3.5 yards per rush to Peterson’s 3.9. That was despite both players tying at 2.2 yards before contact per attempt, according to Pro Football Reference.
  • The new Lions regime waived Johnson, who landed in a Philly backfield with little behind Miles Sanders.
  • New Eagles HC Nick Sirianni comes from a run-friendly background. His offenses have averaged a 43.55% rushing share through his 12 years in the NFL (the past 3 as Colts OC). That would have been the league’s 11th most run-heavy offense last season.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Johnson finds decent opportunity in Philadelphia. Miles Sanders is coming off a meh 2nd season overall, and a new coaching staff gives everyone a fresh slate. Behind Sanders, Boston Scott is the top returning option, with Jordan Howard and 5th-round rookie Kenneth Gainwell also in the mix. Johnson will need a big rebound from a disheartening 2020, though. And it’s not encouraging that Detroit jettisoned him from a backfield that basically sports only D’Andre Swift and offseason import Jamaal Williams. Johnson is likely don’t being truly fantasy relevant.

The 49ers promoted RB Kerryon Johnson from the practice squad to the active roster. He's now eligible to play against the Packers on Sunday night. Johnson joined the team 2 weeks ago. We'll see how big a role he plays in Week 3 -- if he plays at all. But he shouldn't be in fantasy lineups. San Francisco placed RB JaMycal Hasty (ankle) on IR in a corresponding roster move.

The 49ers signed RB Kerryon Johnson to the practice squad. Johnson was a 2nd-round pick just 3 years ago but hasn't been fantasy relevant since his rookie season. He averaged 3.6 and then 3.5 yards per carry for the Lions in 2019 and 2020 -- and was cut by the Eagles this summer. There's obviously opportunity in San Francisco after RB Raheem Mostert's season-ending knee injury, but we wouldn't bet on Johnson capitalizing on it. He's only worth stashing in deep fantasy leagues.

The Eagles on Friday signed RB Kerryon Johnson. He slipped to just 3.3 carries and 1.2 receptions per game last season, with D'Andre Swift in the mix -- despite playing in all 16 games for the 1st time in his 3 years.

We'll see exactly how Johnson fits in this summer.
