Cardinals RB David Johnson (quadricep) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week. Johnson was removed from the injury report so he’s good to go.

Scouting Report

Week 15 at Atlanta Falcons

David Johnson has been disappointing three games in a row, averaging only 70.7 yards from scrimmage during that span and failing to find the end zone. Johnson is still getting a full workload, including eight receptions and 15 carries last week against the Lions, providing optimism for fantasy owners who need him for the playoffs.

This week, Johnson has high upside against a Falcons defense that has allowed the third-most fantasy points to the running back position this year. While it’s hard to trust him after such a frustrating season, his workload gives him a high floor and the matchup makes him a must-start. We have him as a top-10 option this week in all league formats.
