Fantasy Analysis
Week 7 Projections
While the 28-year-old ball runner occasionally shows signs of fading physical skills, Johnson has carved out a productive role as the Texans' lead ball carrier. He has averaged 16.5 touches and 78.2 combo yards per game with three touchdowns scored. Johnson has never touched the ball fewer than 13 times in a contest, but he has failed to clear three catches in a game. The Green Bay Packers defense has hemorrhaged the most fantasy points to the running back position. Green Bay is also ranked just 15th in rushing yards allowed to enemy tailbacks, and the Packers have coughed up at least 100 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns to the position in two of their last three road contests. Johnson should have a solid game with a decent chance for a score.
Rushing: 57 Yards, 0 TD.
Receiving: 2 Receptions, 25 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
David Johnson has not looked the part on the football field since 2016. However, as crazy as it may be, Head Coach/General Manager Bill O'Brien effectively traded away star receiver DeAndre Hopkins and received David Johnson and a retread kit in return. He may have looked like he had a piano on his back in 2019, but he's going to get touches anyway. And in the wonderful world of fantasy running backs, it's opportunity that matters most.

Rushing: 498 Yards, 4 TD.
Receiving: 21 Receptions, 217 Yards, 0 TD.
