2019 Outlook: David Johnson

David Johnson remains a contender for a first-round selection because of his pedigree and the offensive scheme change in Arizona. It can't be because of his 2018 season, where he technically finished as a top-10 running back but was maddeningly inconsistent. It can't be because of his 2017 season, when he damaged his wrist and missed 15 games. The arrival of Kliff Kingsbury and Kyler Murray to the Cardinals signals a move to the ballyhooed Air Raid offense, which should put Johnson in position to get a lot of touches. Working with a running quarterback like Murray should help rejuvenate his rushing average. He's among the highest-risk, highest-reward running backs you'll consider.
