Summary

While Isaiah Crowell improved in 2016, Johnson regressed. This was despite him having the better skill set for the passing game and the team being in negative game scripts for much of the season. Head Coach Hue Jackson and his preference for a power running game could be the main reason for Johnson's regression. With Jackson being retained and Crowell seemingly in the team's good graces, Johnson could be a specialty player with limited and inconsistent contributions once again. (May 13)

Browns | Expectations high for Duke Johnson (Sat Jun 17, 10:10 PM) - Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson is one of the 'better playmakers' for the offense and 'big things' are expected from him this season, according to running backs coach Kirby Wilson.

Our View: That's great and all, but they've been high for Johnson before and he's not played up to his potential. With Isaiah Crowell being used more in the passing game (40 catches last year), it limits the value for Johnson.
