Of course we wouldn’t forget David Johnson. He was just figured to be an assumption of the best of your fantasy draft rankings. He has gone first in all three drafts I’ve participated in.
The thing about Johnson is his versatility. He can get you points on the ground and receiving. He lead all running backs with 80 receptions with four receiving touchdowns last season.
Let’s also not forget he had 16 touchdowns on the ground to go with his 1,239-yards rushing. He is likely to get you a ton of fantasy points.
Again, all of this happens if two things happen. One, he needs to stay healthy. He was injured in the season finale last year. Luckily it was only a sprain that kept him off the practice field for about six weeks.
He was spared much preseason action so he is ready to go in week one against the Detroit Lions. He will get 25-30 touches a game.
The other thing is you’d better hope you have the first pick in the draft. I had the number two pick in two of my three drafts and I was out of luck.
