Shark Bites

Lions RB Kerryon Johnson (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. It's not a good start for his chances of returning for this weekend's game vs. the Rams. Look for LeGarrette Blount to again serve as the lead ball-carrier in that one, with Theo Riddick dominating passing-game work.

Recent Shark Bites

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 waived RB Kerryon Johnson. The former Lion recently suffered a knee injury that's believed to be a sprain. For now, Philly will move forward with Boston Scott, Kenneth Gainwell and Jordan Howard behind Miles Sanders.

Eagles RB Kerryon Johnson is week to week with a knee injury, according to NBC Philly's Dave Zangaro. Johnson already seemed to be behind RB Jordan Howard on the depth chart -- and this injury might kill his chances of making the final roster. Johnson is off the fantasy radar right now.

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. Johnson joins a Philly backfield with Miles Sanders as the leader, 5th-round pick Kenneth Gainwell arriving as a receiving factor and Jordan Howard returning. We'll see exactly how Johnson fits in this summer.

The Lions are waiving RB Kerryon Johnson, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. This move doesn't come as a surprise after Detroit signed Jamaal Williams in free agency. We'd bet on Johnson finding a new team before long, with Atlanta the most obvious candidate. Johnson averaged 4.3 yards per carry and 8.3 yards per catch over 3 seasons in Detroit but averaged just 10.1 touches per game. He lost 14 games to injuries over his first 2 seasons before playing in every 2020 game -- and seeing his rushing workload crater (3.3 rushes per contest). We'll see where Johnson lands for 2021.
