Browns OC Kirby Wilson said the team currently has no plans to make Duke Johnson their featured runner and also mentioned that No. 1 RB Isaiah Crowell's "efficiency has been sporadic for a number of reasons."
Crowell leads the team in carries (46) and yards (134), but Johnson leads the team in rushing touchdowns (2) and has also caught 20 of his 28 targets for 207 yards. Johnson also has an advantage in the yards per carry department: 5.7 to Crowell's 2.91. Johnson has found a role in the passing game, and with the Browns WR depth chart lacking a true playmaker, it makes sense for the team to keep him in that role. We have Johnson ranked as our No. 20 RB in PPR leagues this week in what is a fantastic matchup versus the Jets according to our aFPA metrics.

Week 6 at Houston Texans
A big knock on Duke Johnson in the past has been his inability to score touchdowns, but that has not been a problem this season. He's scored in three straight games and has been a big value for owners, especially in PPR leagues.
Johnson gets a tough matchup this week against the Texans, though. Houston has allowed the least amount of receiving yards to backs this season, which could make it tough for Johnson to succeed. Still, it's hard to bench Johnson considering all of the success he's had recently.
Johnson is a low-end RB2 or flex option in standard, and a strong RB2 play in PPR formats.
