Cardinals' David Johnson: Shut down by Lions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson rushed 15 times for 49 yards and caught eight of 10 targets for 12 yards during Sunday's 17-3 loss to Detroit. He fumbled once but it was recovered.

The Lions were well prepared to defend the dual-threat running back on a Josh Rosen-led offense that doesn't pose much of a threat through the air. While the Lions have done well against opposing running backs ever since defensive tackle Damon Harrison came to town, it was still disappointing to see Johnson average just 3.3 yards per carry -- especially since he's now averaged over four yards per attempt in three of 14 games this season. No longer the reliable fantasy asset he once was, Johnson's effectiveness will remain at the mercy of Rosen's struggles when the Cardinals take on the Falcons in Week 14.

Cardinals' David Johnson: Has two potential scores vultured
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson garnered 69 yards on 20 carries and added a three-yard catch on two targets in Sunday's 20-17 win over the Packers.

All season, Johnson has been finding new ways to frustrate the fantasy owners who spent a premium pick on him. This time around, he got two scores vultured by rookie backup Chase Edmonds (six yards and eight yards), even though Johnson finished with 20 carries to Edmonds' five. A silver lining ahead of Arizona's Week 14 clash with the Lions is that Johnson's averaging a robust 23.5 touches over the past four games.

Cardinals' David Johnson: Records 79 scrimmage yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson carried 17 times for 63 yards and caught two passes for an additional 13 yards during Sunday's 45-10 loss to the Chargers.

Johnson averaged just 3.7 yards per carry and hardly made an impact as a receiver, halting the momentum he had built over recent weeks. The Cardinals were simply outmatched on the offensive side of the ball against a strong defense, which made matters worse by keying in on Johnson. He continues to see a full workload on a weekly basis and will look to bounce back next Sunday against the Packers.

Cardinals' David Johnson: New season high in rushing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson amassed 137 rushing yards on 25 attempts, adding one reception for 17 yards during Sunday's 23-21 loss to Oakland.

Johnson enjoyed his greatest rushing output since Week 5 of 2016, as he garnered a season-high 25 carries in a losing effort against the Raiders. Since Byron Leftwich assumed Arizona's offensive coordinator position in Week 8, Johnson hasn't been used with as much frequency as he was when Mike McCoy was calling the shots, but he's certainly been utilized more effectively. In three showings since the coaching change he's averaged 145.7 offensive yards per contest, compared to 71.6 yards per game over the first seven weeks of the season. Next Sunday brings a matchup against a Chargers defense that allowed Denver running backs backs Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman to account for 102 combined rushing yards and three touchdowns its last time out.

Cardinals' David Johnson: Exceeds 100 yards in second straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson racked up 98 rushing yards and one touchdown on 21 carries, adding seven catches for 85 yards and a receiving score during Sunday's 26-14 loss to the Chiefs.

With 283 total yards against San Francisco and Kansas City over the past two games, Johnson has posted his greatest two-game offensive output since Week 12 and Week 13 of the 2016 season. The last time Johnson had both a rushing and receiving touchdown in the same game came in Week 12 of that 2016 All-Pro season as well. That is, until he caught a nine-yard touchdown pass from Josh Rosen on a wheel route in the first quarter, and later plunged his way into the end zone for a one-yard rushing score during Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.
