Summary

Never used as a three-down player, Johnson has always been a true receiving back. But 2018 was a low watermark for Johnson as he only registered 40 carries and 47 receptions (both career lows). That could be a sign of things to come, as new head coach Freddie Kitchens was the interim coach for most of last year. The team's backfield also hurts Johnson's prospects. Nick Chubb flashed as a rookie last season and will return as the starter. Cleveland also acquired Kareem Hunt in the offseason. Hunt will be suspended for eight games, but it's foolish to think he won't be given a chance to contribute upon his return. While Johnson has a unique skill set, his outlook is cloudy due to a crowded backfield and decreased usage last year. (May 5)
