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 should change this year after he was traded to the Texans and should be their passing down and no huddle back with the potential do more. He has always been effective and explosive, Johnson just needs more opportunity to have a fantasy impact, now he will get it. (August 8)

Latest News

Texans | Duke Johnson reaches end zone (Sun Nov 3, 01:00 PM) - Houston Texans RB Duke Johnson rushed for 13 yards and one touchdown on seven carries against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 9. He also caught five passes for 68 yards during the game.

Our View: Johnson gobbled up yards on a few catches when the Texans had a long ways to go for a first down and won a collision at the goal line to score in his best game of the season. He's an emergency play with upside worth rostering through the bye in PPR leagues.
