What If David Johnson Is Lost For The Season

What would happen to the Cardinals' offense should David Johnson be lost for the season?

The Arizona Cardinals’ offense ranked ninth in the league last year with 5,868 yards, and ranked sixth in touchdowns scored with 48 (28 passing and 20 rushing). David Johnson accounted for 2,118 of those yards and 20 of those touchdowns. In other words, he was well over a third of their total offense. Losing him would be a tough circumstance for the Cardinals to overcome since he’s irreplaceable. Losing the consensus No. 1 overall pick in fantasy football is equally difficult. Here’s what to expect should that scenario unfold in 2017.


John Brown, WR – Johnson’s 120 targets accounted 21.3 percent of the Cardinals’ market share. Only Larry Fitzgerald—who is also a buy candidate and gets the biggest touchdown boost—saw more at 26.6 percent. Meanwhile, Brown battled through concussions and sickle cell last year and managed only 39 catches for 517 yards and two touchdowns while playing only 51.7 percent of snaps. It’s easy to forget, however, that in 2015—when health wasn’t an issue—Brown caught 64 percent of his targets for 65 catches, 1,003 yards and seven touchdowns. If Johnson were to be lost for the season, Brown and Fitzgerald are top trade targets.
