Dynasty/Keeper Outlook

After a 2016 season in which he was exactly the stud fantasy running back many had predicted after his late season breakout as a rookie in 2015, an early wrist injury cost him essentially the entire 2017 NFL campaign. The good news is we aren't talking about a lower body injury like and ankle or knee, that could continue to give him trouble going forward, and by all accounts, he's completely healthy to start the season. Unfortunately, the offense gets a downgrade this season with losses at the receiver position and the retirement of Carson Palmer. Only Larry Fitzgerald remains from the team's top producers last season. The near term concern for Johnson is how quickly Josh Rosen will develop into an NFL starter, and/or how long Sam Bradford can stay healthy. He'll get his touches and remains one of the most versatile weapons in the league, but defenses are going to be able to key on him in a major way until Arizona can reload.

2018 Season Outlook

Johnson should get a monster workload and be a fantasy stud this season, but the overall lack of weapons in the Arizona offense could make him wildly inefficient with those touches. Regardless, he's in the top tier of running backs you build around.
