Summary

David Johnson tore it up in a full 16 game season in 2016 ranking as the top running back in fantasy football. Last season was a different story as he had his sights set on even bigger numbers heading into the season but it quickly came to an end as he didn't make it out of the teams first game. He rushed 11 times for 23 yards and had 6 catches for 68 more yards before his wrist injury which ended his season. Johnson is now 100 percent healthy and has a high goal of rushing for 1,000 yards along with 1,000 yards receiving. Coach Steve Wilks is already raving about Johnson saying "he is flying around and the things that he's doing right now is pretty exciting." Back in 2016 Johnson finished just 121 receiving yards away from his 1,000/1,000 goal. The team will also be adding a full back into the mix this year, something that Johnson has not had yet in his short career. (May 22)
