Strength of Schedule

The easiest rating is 1 which gives the player the advantage against the defense and indicates an easy opponent, the most difficult rating is 10 which gives the defense the advantage and indicates a tough opponent.
Fantasy Analysis
Week 3 Projections
There are two ways of looking at a RB like Chris Johnson. On one hand he takes touches away from David Johnson. On the other hand though, he leaves David Johnson with an opportunity to not only score some decent fantasy points, but also with a better probability of staying healthy. Look for Johnson to get about 10 touches or so this week. However, that will not yield him enough points to make him a viable lineup option.
Rushing: 40 Yards, 0 TD.
Receiving: 1 Receptions, 3 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
If it weren't for the resurgence of DeAngelo Williams in Pittsburgh, all the talk in fantasy circles would have been about the return of CJ1K in 2015. Looking like the spry runner from his Tennessee days, Johnson was on his way to having an incredible year in the desert, rushing for just over 800 yards on 196 carries and excelling in Bruce Arians' spread-friendly offense. Then the wheels fell off, literally, as Johnson succumbed to a late-season injury only to watch David Johnson emerge as the next, great, fantasy stud RB. The Cardinals made re-signing CJ a priority in the offseason though, so the coaching staff and personnel still see some tread left on the tires for 2016, and remember, we've never seen David Johnson bear the brunt of a full workload. So who is the best Johnson in Arizona for fantasy owners this coming year? Ninety-nine percent that it's David, but there's always that chance.

Rushing: 1300 Yards, 9 TD.
Receiving: 60 Receptions, 500 Yards, 0 TD.
