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 13 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 vs. New England Patriots
Versus the Colts last Thursday, Duke Johnson received just six touches for 30 yards. On the season he is averaging eight touches for 54 yards, with three total TDs. He has double-digit touches just once in the past six games. Now that the bye weeks are over Johnson doesn’t have much fantasy value outside of PPR leagues.
