Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (toe, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 13. With Chris Johnson and Andre Ellington both out, David Johnson should see the bulk of the touches against the Rams, who are #18 in RB aFPA. HC Bruce Arians says he could get “up to 25 touches” against the Rams, so he’s a Sneaky Start this week.

Scouting Report

Week 12 at San Francisco

Chris Johnson saw another full workload against the Bengals last week, but he only averaged 3.5 yards per carry and ended up with 65 total yards from scrimmage on the day. He remains a steady option in the Cardinals rushing attack, and currently ranks third in the NFL with 797 rushing yards on the season.

This week should be a little easier on the veteran speedster. Johnson will face the 49ers 27th-ranked rushing attack, and a defense that allowed over 200 yards on the ground to Thomas Rawls of Seattle last week. Johnson should be started in all leagues as a safe RB2 option.
