Summary

Duke Johnson is currently the backup running back behind the oft-injured David Johnson, however, Duke is not built for a heavy load. He has not exceeded 83 carries in three years in the league. He is best utilized as a complementary back or third-down specialist as a receiver. From a fantasy perspective, Johnson has topped 44 receptions or more in each of his three seasons. For that reason, he has fantasy appeal, especially in leagues that award points for receptions. While Duke Johnson isn't a great fit as the team's primary running back and rushing threat, he does have value thanks to his versatility. (May 5)
