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 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 at Baltimore Ravens
Against the Jaguars in London two weeks ago, Duke Johnson scored his first rushing TD of the season, finishing with 81 total yards on 12 touches. The yardage total was the second-most he’s posted in ’19, after a 90-yard performance in the opener. The Ravens defense allows just 91 rushing yards per game, so expect Johnson’s impact to mostly come as a part of the Texans passing game.
