2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
David Johnson touched the ball a league-most 373 times last season, which he turned into an impressive 2,118 total yards and 20 touchdowns. His 80 catches in the passing game were best among running backs in the NFL - five more than Le'Veon Bell and 20 more than third-place finisher James White. Needless to say, Johnson is a player who can truly do it all for your fantasy team and it makes sense why he's practically locked in at No. 1 or No. 2 overall in most leagues. What's interesting is that while Johnson had a monster season, the Cardinals as a team still finished 18th in rushing yards. Johnson accounted for a whopping 71.5 percent of the team's ground game and no other player in the offense had even 200 rushing yards on the year. Those numbers are extraordinarily high and indicate that Johnson might be the biggest bell-cow of any running back in the entire league. However, it also means that he's bound to have some wear and tear by the end of the season.

The Cardinals offensive line remains a liability in pass protection but they're actually a solid run-blocking offensive line with the likes of guards Evan Boehm and Mike Iupati. That, combined with his high usage, make Johnson one of the safest first round running backs - if there is such a thing - that we've seen in recent years. The added concerns of legal issues over the past few seasons for the other top backs, Le'Veon Bell and Ezekiel Elliott, should give Johnson an even stronger case to be selected as the No. 1 player drafted in fantasy drafts.

News From The Past 90 Days
David Johnson back to full health
Recovered from wrist surgery
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jan 18, 8:40 pm

Arizona Cardinals
David Johnson’s wrist is healed, with his strength and full range of motion having returned, and he’s anxious to play again given that he doesn’t even feel like he played football in 2017. Johnson said he was “hit hard” by the retirement of HC Bruce Arians, and that he believes he and Adrian Peterson “can really elevate each other’s game” if they play together this season. (azcardinals.com)

FFToday's Take: Johnson figures to return to bell-cow status in 2018 regardless of whom the Cardinals hire as their next coach. With that said, Arizona will probably give Peterson a few more opportunities than any of Johnson's backups did under Arians. While Johnson figures to be a top-five pick in fantasy drafts this summer, it is possible he'll struggle to reach the statistical heights he did in 2016 with a new quarterback, an offensive line in transition and a new play-caller.
