Johnson carried the ball twice for a team-high 36 yards and caught four of five targets for 73 yards during Sunday's 38-14 loss to the Chargers. Johnson was finally able to get involved in the passing game Sunday, as his four catches matched a season high. He also managed to lead the Browns in rushing yards, despite just two carries. Johnson played 47 percent of the team's offensive stats, though coach Hue Jackson suggested rookie Nick Chubb could start cutting into his playing time, and if that does come to fruition, Johnson's fantasy value is likely to plummet even further.
Johnson rushed five times for 35 yards and caught his only target for seven yards during Sunday's 12-9 victory over the Ravens. Johnson was on the field for 51 percent of Cleveland's offensive snaps and had his most productive game running the ball, despite the limited involvement. His seven yards per carry was the most among Browns running backs, leaving one to wonder if he'll begin to get more carries moving forward. Johnson's lack of involvement in the passing game is still a concern, however, as most of his fantasy value comes from his ability to catch passes out of the backfield.
Johnson rushed twice for 11 yards and caught four of six targets for 45 yards during Sunday's 45-42 loss to Oakland. With Baker Mayfield at the helm, Johnson finally got involved in the passing game, posting season-high receptions and receiving yards. He still isn't a factor in the running game, and with Nick Chubb's impressive performance, Johnson's role could dwindle even further if the rookie running back continues to put up huge numbers. Johnson and Mayfield will look to continue to mold their connection in the passing attack Sunday against the Ravens.
Johnson rushed twice for nine yards and caught both of his targets for 24 yards during Thursday's 21-17 win over the Jets. Though head coach Hue Jackson said it was a priority to get Johnson more involved Week 3, that clearly fell to the wayside, as the dynamic running back played in just 38 percent of Cleveland's offensive snaps against the Jets. Over the first three games of the season, Johnson has just 15 total touches and five catches. The lack of involvement is starting to become a trend, leaving fantasy owners wondering if Johnson -- who caught 74 passes in 2017 -- is even worth a roster spot.
Johnson rushed three times for three yards and caught both of his targets for seven yards during Sunday's 21-18 loss to the Saints. It's been a slow start to the 2018 season for Johnson, who has just 11 total touches through the first two weeks. Johnson -- who signed a three-year extension totaling $15.6 million in June -- was expected to be a threat out of the backfield in both the running and passing game, though that has failed to come to fruition thus far. He'll look to get more involved Thursday against the Jets.
