Lions won't artificially limit Kerryon Johnson's touches

Detroit Lions running backs coach Kyle Caskey said at the start of training camp Wednesday that he won't do anything to artificially limit Kerryon Johnson's touches.

"Kerryon’s as tough as any of them, so I don’t foresee any problems with anything coming about," Caskey said. "I’m not going to sit there in a game and say, ‘Oh my gosh, he’s got a number of touches, we got to get him out,’ or anything like that. He is one of those guys that he’ll give you everything he’s got."

Fantasy Impact: 

Kerryon Johnson worked behind slug-like LeGarrette Blount for much of last season but he excelled whenever the ball came his way and slowly took over as the lead back. This year he'll go in as the No. 1 and shouldn't have any limitations as the every-down lead. Johnson's upside is extremely high in fantasy if he can stay healthy.
