Draft note
by John Paulsen
The touches (308) were there for Johnson in 2018, but his efficiency was down across the board. Most of the blame can be directed as the offense as a whole, but things should be a lot better this season with the arrival of Air Raid guru Kliff Kingsbury, dual-threat quarterback Kyler Murray and an improved receiving corps. This should put Johnson in a better position to succeed. Murray’s arrival should especially help. During the rookie seasons of Cam Newton, Robert Griffin III and Russell Wilson, their teams saw an increase of 18% in rushing attempts, an increase of 48% in rushing yards, an increase of 151% in rushing touchdowns and an increase of 26% in team yards per carry. Johnson’s ADP should be solidly in the first round.

ARI RB David Johnson - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 at New York Giants

David Johnson has yet to rush for over 100 yards in a game this season, but he’s been excellent as an overall fantasy option. He has five touchdowns through six games and he’s fifth among running backs with 30 receptions. Johnson has benefited from defenses trying to protect themselves from the threat of Kyler Murray and he’s coming off a nice game against the Falcons where he gained 100 total yards from scrimmage including six receptions and a pair of touchdowns.

This week, Johnson should be in for another great game against the Giants. New York has allowed 26.7 points per game to opposing offenses, sixth-worst in the NFL, and Johnson’s ability to contribute both in the run game and the passing game should give him ample opportunity to exploit a struggling defense. He’s a must-start in a great matchup this week as an RB1.
