I think it goes without saying Cardinals running back David Johnson is well deserving of his first Pro Bowl nod. He’s on track to win offensive awards in the postseason.
He just went over the 1,000-yard mark on the ground. He has carried the ball 228 times for a total of 1,005-yards. That works out to a 4.4-yard-per-carry average.
He has 11 touchdowns on the ground. However his versatility is what makes him special. He also has 64 receptions for 704-yards. He has four touchdowns receiving.
If the Cardinals were near the top of the NFC like they were last season, there is no doubt Johnson would be an MVP candidate. He’ll get votes there anyway but the Pro Bowl only will likely have to do for 2016.
Johnson has a shot for 1,000 plus yards rushing and receiving. Where would the Cardinals be without him? It’s a thought I’m glad right now we don’t have to realize. He is definitely the Cardinals MVP.
