Draft note
by John Paulsen
Johnson finally got his wish to be traded, and he landed in a pretty good spot behind a vulnerable RB1 (Lamar Miller) in what should be a high-scoring offense. In the last three seasons (48 games), Johnson has turned 195 carries into 907 yards for a 4.65 yards per carry. He has caught 174 passes for 1,636 yards and scored 11 total touchdowns. The resulting 10.3 points per game (PPR) put him at a high-end RB3/low-end RB2 pace in that format on just 7.7 touches per game. Alfred Blue saw 170 touches last year, so there's a sizable role for Johnson, though the Texans haven't utilized their running backs in the passing game very often. Update (8/24): Lamar Miller suffered what looks to be a serious knee injury, so Johnson will have a chance to seize a three-down role in Houston. Depending on the severity of the injury and whether or not the Texans make another move at running back, at this point Johnson is worthy of a fifth round pick on draft day.

HOU RB Duke Johnson - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs. Tennessee Titans
After losing a fumble against the Bucs last Saturday Duke Johnson received limited action. He finished with just four yards on the ground and a 12-yard reception, compared to Carlos Hyde’s 18 touches. At Tennessee two weeks ago, Johnson totaled 23 yards and doesn’t make for a good fantasy option in the rematch.
