Fantasy Analysis
Week 6 Projections
After he averaged 6.5 touches per game from Week 1 through Week 4 in Bill O'Brien's Texans offense, Johnson's role in a post-Bill O'Brien Houston offense didn't expand as some had hoped. Johnson logged just four touches (three carries and one reception on one target) in a David Johnson-dominated backfield during the Texans Week 5 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Maybe his role will expand sometime later in the season, but Johnson is merely a handcuff for David Johnson.
Rushing: 25 Yards, 0 TD.
Receiving: 2 Receptions, 19 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
Will Duke Johnson ever be given a chance at a lead role? His efficiency rates remain top notch yet the sixth-year pro topped out at 104 carries in a season back in his rookie campaign. Given what the Texans gave up to acquire David Johnson, betting money says Duke will remain in the second-fiddle role, but.. David Johnson has not put in a full season in over four years. Once again, Duke Johnson leads the "What If" list of fantasy running backs that if given a full load, may very well surprise.

Rushing: 225 Yards, 1 TD.
Receiving: 20 Receptions, 157 Yards, 1 TD.
