Fantasy Analysis
Week 6 Projections
Although he amassed the bulk of his 17-96-0 rushing line during clock-killing time against the Jacksonville Jaguars this past Sunday, it was still Johnson's best effort on the ground this season. He also caught two balls for seven yards on four targets, which was Johnson's fourth straight game with only two receptions. Operating as an early-down grinder nowadays, Johnson looks like middling play against a Tennessee Titans defense that apparently has tightened up after it was gashed for 30-208-1 by Minnesota Vikings runners back in Week 3. The Titans limited Buffalo Bills ball carriers to a combined 18 carries for 77 scoreless yards on the ground Tuesday night.
Rushing: 52 Yards, 0 TD.
Receiving: 2 Receptions, 24 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.
