2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
While many look at David Johnson's 2018 season as a bust, it should be a cautionary tale of not overvaluing players - even good players - who are in bad offenses. Even while "busting" in a way, Johnson still delivered a top-10 fantasy finish on the season in 2018. He just did it without anywhere near as many big games as we had hoped for, which often made it feel like he wasn't much of a difference-maker. The raw numbers weren't anything special, but Johnson still displayed tremendous physical skill on the field which should give us some optimism heading into 2019.

Johnson will go from one of the league's worst offensive schemes for fantasy production in 2018 to potentially one of the best in 2019, especially given that he'll be playing alongside new quarterback Kyler Murray. We've seen it countless times throughout the league that an agile quarterback might end up taking some carries from his running back, but his mere presence on the field makes defenses hesitate prior to engaging on handoffs to the back. Murray should do this for Johnson, which should help open up running lanes. The offensive line woes are still a concern, but Johnson should have more room to run in a much better, more explosive, higher-paced offense.

Johnson is locked in as a top 10 overall fantasy draft pick but some fantasy owners have completely sworn him off due to a disappointing 2018 season. Don't be that guy in your draft room. If you miss out on the top-tier of backs, there's no shame in selecting Johnson, who we're almost certain will produce RB1 fantasy numbers if he can stay healthy.
