To update, Detroit Lions RB Kerryon Johnson remains with the team despite a recent report that he will be released, Lions general manager Brad Holmes said Thursday, May 6. Holmes said the situation is a 'work in progress.'
Huddle Up: A one-time fantasy up-and-comer, Johnson has fallen out of favor in the Motor City, and his "stay" likely only means the Lions are trying to trade him to get at least something in return for the 2018 second-round pick.

Detroit Lions RB Kerryon Johnson was waived Wednesday, May 5, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Johnson averaged 5.2 yards per touch in 2020, his third NFL season, but totaled just 368 yards and three touchdowns on 71 touches despite playing all 16 games. The former second-round pick is likely to catch on elsewhere and could be a late-round fantasy target in the right situation.

Detroit Lions RB Kerryon Johnson ran twice for three yards and a touchdown Sunday, Dec. 13, vs. the Green Bay Packers. He added one catch for 10 yards on his only target in Week 14.
Huddle Up: The TD was frustrating to see since it could have gone to another option with fantasy utility, and no one can count on it happening again from a third-string back. He has no fantasy value going forward.

Detroit Lions RB Kerryon Johnson (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 11, and is not on the injury report for Week 14.
Huddle Up: Johnson probably will only see a handful of touches if D'Andre Swift returns to the lineup and can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

Detroit Lions RB Kerryon Johnson (knee) was limited at practice Wednesday, Dec. 9.
Huddle Up: Johnson saw a season-high 11 carries in the blowout loss against the Houston Texans in Week 12, but that workload was dialed back to just three carries in Week 13. He doesn't have any reliable fantasy value.

Detroit Lions RB Kerryon Johnson rushed for 46 yards on 11 carries against the Houston Texans in Week 12. He also caught four passes for 52 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Johnson has been splitting playing time with Adrian Peterson over the last few weeks but could see a smaller role if D'Andre Swift is able to play in Week 13. Fantasy players should be able to find better options and can keep Johnson on the bench.

Detroit Lions RB Kerryon Johnson rushed for 17 yards on six carries against the Carolina Panthers in Week 11. He also caught two passes for 21 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: With D'Andre Swift sidelined, Johnson shared playing time with Adrian Peterson but struggled against the Panthers. He will have a more favorable matchup next week but should not be a starting fantasy option.
