Week 10
With Nick Chubb missing this game due to COVID-19, Johnson was thrust back into a starting role for the Browns, and he didn’t disappoint. With the Pats D smothering any semblance of a passing attack by Baker Mayfield (and later Case Keenum), Johnson became their best option on checkdowns, and his 8 targets were 3 more than any other player on the Browns had. He also benefited from the great run blocking the Browns OL provided, and despite the blowout loss, he still garnered 19 carries.

With Chubb potentially back next week, and Kareem Hunt likely nearing a return from his IR stint, Johnson’s days of fantasy relevance may be quickly coming to an end. However, he’s not a bad player to stash on rosters because as we’ve seen, when he gets the opportunity to carry the load, he can post RB1 numbers. Especially if Hunt’s return gets pushed out longer than expected, Johnson could retain flex value even if Chubb returns.
Week 7
The 3rd-string RB led Cleveland in its Thursday night win over Denver, with Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt both out with calf injuries.

You would have had no idea that Johnson was 3rd string by the way he played and the way the Browns relied on him. He had 64 yards on 9 carries by halftime, including a 4-yard TD plunge on the 5th play of the game. Playing the final quarter of the game with a 10-point lead helped build the volume further, and Johnson finished with a 22-146-1 rushing line. That included 7 carries for 52 yards on the team’s final drive alone. Johnson added 2 catches (on 2 targets) for 22 yards.

The Browns expect to get Chubb back for Week 8 against Pittsburgh. That would return Johnson to a support role. We’ll see, though, whether he showed enough Thursday night to earn Kareem Hunt-level usage as the #2 RB. (Hunt remains out.)

We have Johnson at RB35 for Week 8.
Week 6
Johnson might be the next man up for a Browns run game that has lost Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt in successive weeks. But that doesn’t make him a lock for production.

Most of us became aware of Johnson in Week 4 last year, when he rushed 13 times for 95 yards in a game Chubb left early. The Browns were so impressed that they gave him 15 more carries over the 4 weeks that Chubb missed -- just 17.4% of the team RB total over that span. Johnson took those for 2.8 yards per rush. He also caught 2 of 3 targets for 9 more yards.

Johnson is a 5’11, 200-pound RB who ran just a 4.81-second 40-yard dash at his pro day. That followed a college career in which he averaged a mere 4.3 yards per rush, spending 1 of 4 seasons as the lead RB and never leading South Florida in rushing attempts.

We’re certainly projecting Johnson to lead Cleveland in carries against Denver on Thursday night, but John Kelly -- whom the Browns elevated this week from the practice squad -- is at least comparable in talent, if not better.
