Johnson is coming off an unremarkable season that left a sour taste in the mouths of his fantasy football investors. But it was a tale of two halves:
- Johnson in Weeks 1-8: 14.5 PPR points per game, overall RB11
- Johnson in Weeks 10-17: 16.3 PPR points per game, overall RB7
There’s reason to believe his rushing efficiency will increase while his ceiling as a receiver could help him re-emerge as one of fantasy’s most consistent stars.
It remains to be seen if DJ will ever return to his 2016 heights, but even a mild improvement from his teammates and coaches should at least enable him to return value as a top-five fantasy investment. — Ian Hartitz
