Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 1 vs ARI (16 / 49 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 13 / 0 rec)

Kerryon Johnson drew the start for the Detroit Lions at Arizona in week one, but only had 16 carries while C.J. Anderson had 11. Johnson ran well early, getting interior rushing space and churning yardage after contract. However, Anderson ate into his workload throughout the game and Johnson had limited passing game work. He had only two receptions, including one late on a drive attempting to kill the clock, which was a disappointment after his heavy preseason usage. Johnson's workshare with Anderson will cap his fantasy production and the allocation of touches is important to watch in future weeks including his week two game against the Chargers.

Lions | Kerryon Johnson has solid game (Sun Sep 15, 04:52 PM) - Detroit Lions RB Kerryon Johnson rushed for 41 yards on 12 carries against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 2. He also caught two passes for 47 yards and one touchdown during the game.

Our View: Johnson's day was saved by a 36-yard catch and run touchdown, but it was a still a day that saw him cede more work to other backs than most lead backs and the Lions struggled to establish the run against a Chargers team that Marlon Mack ran all over last week. He'll be an acceptable RB2 against the Eagles next week.
