He’ll get another bite at the apple next week against the Bucs. Johnson looked much better than he did against Dallas last week, but it's still pretty clear he doesn't have much left in the tank.
Andre Ellington will be the primary back on third downs with Johnson handling change-of-pace duties behind Williams.Johnson won't be an appealing fantasy option, even in a plus matchup against a Colts squad that let up 46 points in Week 1.This was expected after David Johnson was sent to injured reserve with a wrist injury.Johnson was easily the Cardinals' best runner in Sunday's narrow win over the Colts.He should get the first chance to establish the hot hand in Week 3 against the Cowboys, but Kerwynn Williams is unlikely to be phased out altogether.Still, he’ll be a high-risk GPP dart throw that may not have a high enough ceiling to be worth the risk. Johnson got the start for Arizona and led all Cardinals' backs in carries, but Andre Ellington out-snapped him 49-31. Johnson seemed to be phased out in the second half, as he was getting nothing going on the ground, and the Cardinals were playing from behind much of the fourth quarter. Arians appears ready to give Johnson a chance to run with starting duties during David Johnson's absence.
Fantasy players shouldn't expect more than an RB3 day, but Johnson is worth scooping up in leagues where he remains unowned (admittedly, probably not many).
Going on 27, Lindley has scattered six starts across four NFL seasons. Frankly, it's astounding Moore made it as long as he did in Dallas. Whitehurst's release, of course, is a strong indication that Kessler will be ready.
Now 34, Whitehurst has been an entertaining NFL presence, but never actually been good at football.
Johnson is not guaranteed a role, but he is worth a speculative add in deeper leagues. Johnson has averaged just over 3.0 YPC this preseason and isn't a lock to make the team ahead of Kerwynn Williams and Andre Ellington. It was not an exciting performance, but Johnson notably worked as the clear No. Arizona would likely turn to a committee of sorts if something happened to David Johnson, but CJ2K would be the best fantasy bet.
Johnson re-signed just before training camp and didn't look the same in preseason, losing out for the Cardinals' No. Andre Ellington appears safe for now as Arizona's No. Lindley was signed before Week 17, when the Colts found themselves in truly dire quarterback straits. The writing was on the wall after Moore was a healthy scratch in favor of Cooper Rush last Sunday. Whitehurst looked as bad as ever in spot duty on Sunday, and the Browns decided they would rather see what fifth-round rookie Kevin Hogan has to offer if Cody Kessler can't go against the Titans.
With Arizona favored by 7, game flow could boost Johnson’s volume.
