David Johnson Fantasy Value

David Johnson got off to a somewhat promising start to the 2019 season before succumbing to injury. By midseason, he was fantasy irrelevant, leaving many fantasy owners pulling out their hair. A lot of owners keep turning back to Johnson's 2016 season, clinging to hopes of a career resurrection, but I'm highly skeptical at this point. It doesn't mean Johnson cannot do it; it just seems unlikely. The Cardinals jettisoned him to the Texans this offseason where he'll once again be the featured back. But Johnson has only once topped 1,000 rushing yards in his career and hasn't topped 4.0 yards per carry since 2016. Johnson will be selected by a lot of owners as an RB2, but I wouldn't feel comfortable with him as anything higher than my third back.
