Johnson is positioned to work as the Lions’ lead running back again in 2019, but it’s tough to see him gaining a three-down workload.

The Lions love committee backfields.

Still, the good news for everyone involved in this offense is that we should probably expect a step forward, especially from the rushing attack. And even a moderate improvement from the change at offensive coordinator or from quarterback Matthew Stafford could go a long way for Detroit’s lead back. Ian Hartitz
