Browns' Duke Johnson: Discussing extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson is discussing a new contract with the Browns, NFL.com's Michael Silver reports.

Impressive in a part-time role his first two seasons, the 2015 third-round pick enjoyed a mini-breakout in 2017 despite essentially filling the same role. He'll be part of an improved offense featuring Tyrod Taylor this upcoming season, though it could be tough to duplicate last year's 74 catches and 93 targets with Josh Gordon and Jarvis Landry on the roster. There's also some chance the Browns use one of their many early draft picks on a running back, though the desire to sign Johnson to an extension suggests that's no sure thing. We'll have a better read on Johnson's future once the draft is complete.

Browns' Duke Johnson: Scores, totals 95 scrimmage yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson carried six times for 20 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Steelers. He also caught all six of his targets for 75 yards and lost a fumble in the 28-24 loss.

Johnson managed just 3.3 yards per carry, but he chipped in his usual reliable contribution as a pass catcher as he still finished with his second-highest scrimmage yards total of the season. The third-year back never really threatened Isaiah Crowell's grasp on early-down work, but his impressive 684 receiving yards on 74 catches allowed him to eclipse 1,000 scrimmage yards for the first time in his career. Johnson has one year remaining on his rookie contract and seems secure in his role as a receiving threat out of the backfield regardless of the changes the Browns offense could undergo in the offseason.

Browns' Duke Johnson: Good to go for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (shoulder) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game in Pittsburgh, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Like fellow running back Isaiah Crowell (shoulder/ribs), Johnson has yet to miss a game in his career. While he'll yield most of the carries to Crowell, per usual, this weekend, Johnson will remain active as a pass catcher due to his standing as the fourth-ranked RB in terms of receptions this season.

Browns' Duke Johnson: Limited to start week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (shoulder) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Johnson was also limited at practice last Wednesday before returning to full participation Thursday and Friday. He had four carries for 20 yards and seven caches for 81 yards in a 20-3 loss to the Bears, accounting for 39 percent of Cleveland's yardage in a dismal performance. Johnson will now prepare to face a Pittsburgh defense that limited him to two catches for 20 yards (and zero carries) back in Week 1.

Browns' Duke Johnson: Compiles 101 total yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson rushed four times for 20 yards and brought in all seven of his targets for 81 yards in Sunday's 20-3 loss to the Bears.

The third-year back paced all pass catchers in receptions and receiving yardage on the afternoon, and his seven grabs also served as his second-highest total in that category this season. Johnson saw minimal work on the ground as usual, but his robust role in the passing attack has kept him a viable PPR option throughout the campaign. Now with a career-high 68 catches on his resume, he'll look to help the Browns avoid a winless season when they face the Steelers in Week 17.
