CLE RB D'Ernest Johnson - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 10 at Patriots
D'Ernest Johnson looks likely to be thrust into the lead role once again with Nick Chubb dealing with COVID-19 and Kareem Hunt on injured reserve. Johnson looked highly impressive against the Broncos back in Week 7, rushing 22 times for 146 yards and a touchdown while catching both of his targets for 22 yards.
Johnson has a good matchup against a Patriots defense that ranks 22nd in aFPA. The Browns have the best running game in football, ranking 3rd in Adjusted Line Yards and 1st in rush DVOA. You have to love the volume and situation for Johnson, so fire him up as an upside RB2 in this spot.
