Browns OC: No plans to make Duke Johnson featured runner

Mary Kay Cabot - [Full Article]

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."

Fantasy Impact:

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.

Scouting Report

Week 6 at Houston Texans

Isaiah Crowell has struggled most of the season, but the bright side is he had his best game last week. Crowell finished with 60 yards on 16 carries, both season-highs. It's obviously not a good sign when your starting back's season high is only 60 yards and he has no touchdowns on the season.

Crowell's season is unlikely to turnaround this week as he draws a tough matchup against the Texans. Houston has only allowed 1 rushing score to a back all season and they have done a good job keeping backs in check most of the season.

Expect more of the same from Crowell, which will make him a low-end flex play at best.
