Player Analysis: Dennis Johnson (must-own)



With Arian Foster in danger of missing the rest of the season and injury-prone Ben Tate currently playing with four broken ribs, Johnson has a very good chance to be an RB1 at some point this season. He’s a bit under-sized at 5’7″, 200 pounds, but if you saw him run in Week 9 then you know that he runs hard and plays bigger than his size.

The bottom line here is that Johnson needs to be owned! There are players on your roster that are nothing more than bye-week fill-ins and can easily be replaced. Johnson has a great chance to be a difference-maker during your league playoffs and is the kind of player that should be riding the backend of your bench.
