Summary

After two seasons of being a passing game specialist out of the backfield, Johnson expanded his role in 2017, playing wide receiver as well as running back. His 74 receptions were a career-high, and he has never caught fewer than 53 passes in any of this three seasons. In limited time as a runner, he averaged 4.2 yards per carry. Despite the acquisition of Carlos Hyde and the draft selection of Nick Chubb, Johnson's role is safe. And the 94 targets he saw last season should be a good starting point to project his 2018 opportunity. (May 6)

Browns | Duke Johnson optimistic for extension (Wed May 23, 08:40 PM) - Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson said that he is in discussions with the team about a contract extension and he's 'very optimistic' the two sides will come to an agreement.

Our View: A third-round pick in 2015, Johnson is in the final year of his rookie contract. Johnson has around a $2.1 million cap hit in 2018, and the change-of-pace back could stay with the team after this year to continue his role. Carlos Hyde and rookie Nick Chubb will compete for the lead ball-carrier spot on the Browns in 2018.
