The Texans on Monday placed RB David Johnson on the COVID list. That's probably good news for fantasy, as Johnson was already inactive with a quad injury Sunday against the Chargers. That helped pave the way for Rex Burkhead's blowup. Burkhead should be in line for another feature role next Sunday at San Francisco -- albeit, a much worse rushing matchup.
The Saints signed RB David Johnson to the active roster. He'll help New Orleans replace RB Mark Ingram, who's likely to miss the rest of the season with an MCL injury. We wouldn't bother adding Johnson to fantasy rosters even as an Alvin Kamara handcuff. RB Dwayne Washington is also on the active roster.
The Saints on Saturday promoted RB David Johnson from the practice squad to the active roster. That likely means there will be a role for him Sunday against the Rams. We wouldn't bet on a lot of usage, though. Dwayne Washington and Jordan Howard combined for just 7 snaps last week, with Howard drawing the only carry between them.
The Saints signed RB David Johnson to their practice squad, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports. Johnson turns 31 in a month and mustered just 3.4 yards per carry on 67 attempts with the Texans last year. New Orleans is expected to be without RB Mark Ingram for another week or 2, so Johnson might find his way onto the active roster. But he remains well off the fantasy radar.
Texans RB David Johnson has been activated from the COVID list. He figures to play vs. the Titans on Sunday but should only steal a handful of touches from RB Rex Burkhead.
Texans RB David Johnson was not activated from the COVID list and will miss today’s game vs. the 49ers. Rex Burkhead should remain Houston’s clear lead back, with Royce Freeman the #2.
