Cleveland Browns RB D'Ernest Johnson finished with eight runs for 32 yards and he added a catch for four yards on his only target in Week 5 against the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: Johnson took a step back after his breakout game in Dallas last week. He'll continue to see a role in the backfield as long as Nick Chubb is on the shelf, but at this point Johnson is only worth grabbing in deeper fantasy leagues. The Browns travel to meet the Steelers in Week 6.

Cleveland Browns RB D'Ernest Johnson rushed 13 times for 95 yards in Week 4 against the Dallas Cowboys, stepping in for the injured RB Nick Chubb (knee).
Huddle Up: Johnson surprised, coming on mid-game and actually outperforming primary backup Kareem Hunt. Still, Hunt is the back to own if Chubb is forced to miss any additional games, but Johnson certainly looked like he could handle himself well if given regular touches. The Browns host the Colts in Week 5.

Cleveland Browns RB D'Ernest Johnson rushed three times for eight yards while added three receptions for 42 yards on four targets in Week 2 against the New York Jets on Monday, Sept. 16.
Huddle Up: Johnson was seeing a chance as the backup to Nick Chubb with Dontrell Hilliard sidelined by concussion. Johnson showed he can be useful when his number is called, particularly in the pass game. However, as long as Chubb is healthy, neither of the backups are particularly attractive from a fantasy perspective.
