Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official website believes RB David Johnson's receiving ability will "come back to the forefront" in HC Kliff Kingsbury's offense. "Johnson should fit perfectly into the new Cardinals’ offense," Urban adds. After posting a huge 80-879-4 receiving line in 2016, Johnson posted a relatively disappointing 50-446-3 in a stale 2018 Arizona offense. Kingsbury is expected to bring his Air Raid principles and an up-tempo attack to the desert. It should suit Johnson perfectly considering he does his best work out in space. His upside extends to the top of the RB position this year.

Cardinals RB David Johnson (ankle) returned to practice on Thursday. It looks like Wednesday was just a rest day. We'll get another update tomorrow, but D.J. should be fine for this weekend's game vs. the Giants.

Cardinals RB David Johnson didn't practice on Wednesday and is listed on the injury report with an ankle. It was a back issue that limited D.J. in practice last week. This could just be a rest day for Johnson, and we'll find out more tomorrow. But RB Chase Edmonds should be stashed in pretty much all fantasy leagues.

Cardinals RB David Johnson (back) is active for today’s game against the Falcons. The back issue obviously adds risk to his Week 6 outlook. Arizona might scale back his volume a bit, and there’s a chance the back locks up on him again. But D.J. retains RB1 upside in this plus matchup.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Cardinals RB David Johnson is expected to play against the Falcons today -- "barring a setback" -- despite the back injury that rendered him questionable. An active Johnson belongs in fantasy lineups against the defense that allowed 53 points to the Texans a week ago. Chase Edmonds can still be a deeper PPR option, but last week marked the 1st time this season he collected more than 6 touches.

Cardinals RB David Johnson (back) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Falcons. He put in a limited practice on Friday after sitting out the previous 2 days. Johnson told reporters that he felt good in Friday’s practice but will be a game-time decision. NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo, meanwhile, hears that D.J. is “likely” to play. Cardinals-Falcons doesn’t kick off until 4:05 pm ET, but we’ll look for an update on Johnson Sunday morning. Chase Edmonds will operate as Arizona’s feature back if Johnson doesn’t play.
