In his final eight games, Johnson racked up an average of 94 total yards (5.53 YPC) and 0.5 touchdowns on 16.1 touches per game. HC Matt Patricia is committed to the run, so Johnson should be heavily involved in 2019.

Lions RB Bo Scarbrough (ribs, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 16. Scarbrough may be able to make his return this week, though Kerryon Johnson may be back as well. Wes Hills would fill in if Scarbrough and/or Johnson can't play.
DET RB Kerryon Johnson - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. Green Bay Packers
In his first game back from IR last week at Denver, Kerryon Johnson led the team with 10 carries for 42 yards. Bo Scarbrough split time with Johnson and received eight carries, but none of the Detroit RBs had a good game as the club posted less than 200 yards of offense. Without Johnson, the Packers held the Lions to only 56 yards on the ground in October. Look for it to remain an RBBC approach, meaning you’re better off looking elsewhere for a starting back.
