HOU RB Duke Johnson - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 at Detroit Lions
Even though Duke Johnson was the Texans main RB last week versus New England, he finished with just 15 yards on 10 carries and caught three passes for 20 yards. Without David Johnson the past two contests Duke Johnson has failed to take advantage, totaling only 89 yards. The Lions have the third-worst run defense, but Johnson remains a shaky fantasy start on Thursday.

HOU RB Duke Johnson - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 vs. New England Patriots
Filling in for the concussed David Johnson at Cleveland last week, Duke Johnson carried 14 times for 54 yards. In the windy weather, Houston struggled on offense, as none of the team had a good fantasy day. David Johnson has been placed on I.R. so Duke Johnson will again be the team’s featured back. The Patriots are No. 24 versus the run, making Johnson an RB2 start.

HOU RB Duke Johnson - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 at Cleveland Browns
In the win at Jacksonville last week Duke Johnson came in for the injured David Johnson, rushing 16 times for 41 yards and scored for the first time this year. He also snagged four passes for 32 yards. In the previous five games he saw action this season Johnson totaled only 28 touches but has been a capable backup over his career when called upon. The Browns have a decent run defense so even though David Johnson is out, Duke Johnson is still a risky fantasy start.

HOU RB Duke Johnson - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 at Jacksonville Jaguars
In the loss to Green Bay a couple weeks ago, Duke Johnson only rushed once but caught a season-high five passes for 43 yards. In the five contests he’s played this year Johnson has just 28 total touches and no TDs. Versus the Jaguars last month, he totaled 19 yards on four touches.

HOU RB Duke Johnson - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

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.

HOU RB Duke Johnson - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 at Tennessee Titans
Duke Johnson continues to play second fiddle to David Johnson in the Houston offense. In the win versus the Jaguars last week, he finished with just four touches for 19 yards and has only 19 touches in the three games he’s played in this season. Duke Johnson remains a handcuff to the starter.

HOU RB Duke Johnson - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
After missing the previous two contests with an ankle injury, Duke Johnson was back on the field last week. In the loss to the Vikings he totaled 45 yards on eight touches. David Johnson accounted for 16 of Houston’s rushing attempts and will likely continue to be the featured back even with Bill O’Brien no longer coaching the team. Even though the Jacksonville defense has struggled this season Duke Johnson is no more than a handcuff fantasy roster spot.
