Summary

The hype for David Johnson has been big entering every season since his 2016 explosion where he finished the year as RB2 in fantasy football. In 2017, he was injured one game into the season, and last season he was hyped as an early 1st round selection as he was ranked as RB4 heading into the season and ended up finishing the year as the 10th best running back. Johnson's best fantasy trait remains his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield and piling up the stats in the receiving game. He had 50 receptions for 446 yards and 3 touchdowns through the air and added 941 rushing yards along with 7 rushing touchdowns but only averaged 3.6 yards a carry. With Kliff Kingsbury now coaching the team there seems to be a new excitement for the offensive minded players and scheme and it will likely all start with the Cardinals most talented player, David Johnson.
