Draft note
by John Paulsen
Johnson is fully capable of being a three-down back--he’s the all-time leading rusher at the University of Miami and hasn’t missed a game if five NFL seasons--but it doesn’t appear that his coaches in the NFL agree with that sentiment as he’s never seen more than 10.3 touches per game in any season. He averaged 7.9 touches last year playing behind Carlos Hyde, who has been replaced after Bill O’Brien’s jaw-dropping trade for David Johnson. O’Brien is likely to force feed David even if he’s not as efficient as Duke, so Duke is likely to need an injury to David to give him fantasy relevance in 2020.

Week 7 vs. Green Bay Packers
Last week at Tennessee, Duke Johnson carried the ball four times and caught a two-yard pass. There is little reason for him to be taking up a fantasy roster spot.
