David Johnson the "unquestioned No. 1 RB" in AZ-- Mon Jul 18 5:00 pm --
Over 1,000 total yards as rookie despite making only five starts
During a roundtable discussion on azcardinals.com, beat writer Darren Urban discussed the running back situation in Arizona:
"I don't know how anybody would suggest otherwise at this point (that David Johnson is the unquestioned No. 1 RB in Arizona. They did bring back Chris Johnson in an upset ... but David Johnson is the guy this organization absolutely loves."(azcardinals.com)
FF Today's Take:Among first-round fantasy picks over the last few years, only C.J. Anderson comes to mind as a back whose touches are supposedly in limbo after such a dominant second half of the season the year before. Urban projected earlier in the offseason Johnson would receive 60 percent of the touches in the Arizona backfield, which sounds about right. While Chris Johnson and Andre Ellington may few more touches than DJ owners want, he's a strong bet to live up to his draft status.
