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 1 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 1 – Kerryon Johnson vs. Chicago Bears
With D’Andre Swift expected to miss the opener due to a leg injury, Kerryon Johnson will get a chance to prove he deserves to retain the Lions top RB position. The former second-round pick has shown positive signs when he’s been able to stay healthy - rushing for over 1,000 yards, snagging 54 passes and scoring eight total times in just 18 pro games. Even though Adrian Peterson was recently added to the roster, Johnson should be the featured back on Sunday, receiving around 15 touches. Play him as an RB2.
