Browns' Duke Johnson: Another TD in Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson rushed three times for 15 yards and caught all four of his targets for 31 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 28-16 win over Atlanta.

Johnson has been the biggest beneficiary of the regime change in Cleveland, as he has three touchdowns in two games since Freddie Kitchens took over offensive play calling. Unfortunately for owners who recently picked Johnson up and want to use their shiny new toy, he'll be on bye along with the rest of the Browns in Week 11.

Browns' Duke Johnson: Catches two touchdowns against Chiefs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson caught all nine of his targets for a team-high 78 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 37-21 loss to the Chiefs. He also rushed once for eight yards.

With Gregg Williams in at head coach and Freddie Kitchens now in charge of calling plays, the Browns made a concerted effort in giving Johnson the ball for the first time in 2018, evidenced by his team-high nine targets. Johnson and rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield were in sync throughout Sunday's game, and Johnson accounted for both of Mayfield's touchdowns through the air. It remains to be seen if Johnson's usage will continue, but Sunday's performance finally gave fantasy owners hope.

Browns' Duke Johnson: Plays 23 snaps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson carried the ball twice for zero yards and caught two of three targets for 16 yards during Sunday's 33-18 loss to Pittsburgh.

Though the Browns traded away Carlos Hyde, Johnson failed to see an uptick of playing time or involvement on Sunday. He was on the field for just 36 percent of Cleveland's offensive snaps, and his four total touches was his lowest amount since Week 3. It's now clear that Nick Chubb is the new No. 1 back, and even rookie running back Dontrell Hilliard saw 15 snaps himself. Maybe Johnson's usage will change after Hue Jackson and Todd Haley were shown the door, but until we have proof, Johnson's fantasy value swimming in the bottom of the ocean.

Browns' Duke Johnson: Quiet in overtime loss to Tampa Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson was stuffed for a loss of four yards on his lone carry of the afternoon, adding four receptions for 23 yards during Sunday's 26-23 loss to Tampa Bay.

Despite Carlos Hyde now being out of the fold, Johnson was provided with a season-low one carry, though he did salvage some value in the passing game by corralling all four of his targets against Tampa Bay. The hope for those with stock in Johnson is that with a less-crowded backfield, the 2017 PPR darling would see an uptick from his offensive snap count percentage of 42.7 percent. That proved not to be the case against the Bucs, as rookie second-rounder Nick Chubb garnered 18 of 23 running back touches for Cleveland. Sunday's upcoming matchup against Pittsburgh doesn't exactly provide reason for optimism with Cleveland facing a Steelers defense that entered its Week 7 bye allowing the third-fewest receptions (21) and the second-fewest receiving yards (124) to running backs.

Browns' Duke Johnson: To work in tandem with Nick Chubb
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

While Johnson is listed as the starter Week 7 in Tampa Bay, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer suggests rookie Nick Chubb will have a meaningful role as well.

The Clevaland beat writer referred to Chubb as the "workhorse" and clarified that Johnson may not be the first back on the field, nor get the majority of the carries. Fantasy owners can expect some type of split between the two backs, with Johnson known as the better pass-catcher, and Chubb likely the better traditional runner. Both will see a boost in value this week in the absence of Carlos Hyde, who was traded to Jacksonville over the weekend.
