Arians: RB Chris Johnson might move up depth chart but something to sort out this week.

Related players: Kerwynn Williams, Andre Ellington

Fantasy Impact:

Johnson ran for 44 on 11 carries and outshined Williams in the game who ran for just 22 yards on nine carries. Williams could get some work, but it looks likes Johnson could end up getting the bulk of the carries going forward. Ellington likely remains a change of pace and third down option.

Scouting Report

Week 3 vs. Dallas Cowboys

Chris Johnson came off the street to carry the ball 11 times for 44 yards against the Colts last week. Johnson lacks the star power he used to have, but he seems to have the confidence of head coach Bruce Arians, and the coaching staff has indicated they’ll give him more work moving forward. It’s still scary to trust Johnson in what could be a committee approach to the backfield, but if you’re desperate, Johnson could be worth gambling on in large standard leagues as a low-level flex option. The Cowboys gave up 118 yards on 25 carries last week, and a total of 178 yards on the ground to the Broncos as a whole.
