Draft note
by John Paulsen
The former second-rounder racked up 96 touches in his first five games, but only averaged 3.28 YPC in that span and finished with 3.57 YPC on the season. He missed eight games in 2019 after missing six games the year before, so the Lions drafted D’Andre Swift (also in the second round). This will likely be a committee, but since Johnson’s YPC tanked in 2019 (down from 5.4 as a rookie) and he hasn’t proven to be durable, Swift figures to be the lead back.

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.
