Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) will be available to play in the Week 3 game despite the wrist injury he suffered in Week 2, according to head coach Kliff Kingsbury.
Huddle Up: Johnson was held to only 14 total yards in the Week 2 game but should be more involved in the offense this week. Fantasy players in all leagues should have Johnson in their starting lineups.

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) suffered a wrist injury during the Week 2 game and is considered questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players should monitor the situation to see if Johnson will be able to return to the game. Chase Edmonds would take over as the starter if Johnson misses any time and could be at least a flex option.

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson's receiving skills 'should come back to the forefront' after being 'all but ignored last season,' in the opinion of Darren Urban of AZcardinals.com.
Huddle Up: This has been the assumption among fantasy owners since Arizona hired Kliff Kingsbury, but it always helps to get it confirmed from a scribe that covers the team like Urban does. Johnson's goal of a 1,000/1,000 season may be a bit too much to ask, but this figures to be the 27-year-old's best shot of hitting those marks since his incredible 2016 campaign. He's well worth a pick in the top half of the first round of most fantasy drafts.

Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds expressed confidence Wednesday, June 17 that he will have a regular role in the offseason despite the fact RB David Johnson will be leaned upon heavily as the bellcow back. 'Me and (Dave) are definitely pushing for (two-back looks),' Edmonds said. 'It opens up his dynamic ability and mine as well. Whether it's two-back sets or Dave in the slot, me in the slot, it doesn't really matter.'
Huddle Up: Edmonds might be confident that he'll have a decent role, but head coach Kliff Kingsbury has made it clear he intends on riding Johnson hard this season. That's great for his fantasy value, but Edmonds might only see crumbs. His fantasy appeal is much, much less.

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson said he optimistic about the offense head coach Kliff Kingsbury is bringing to the team. He believes he can have a similar season in 2019 than he did in 2016 when he posted more than 2,000 total yards.
Huddle Up: The Cardinals will try to play fast on offense, so Johnson should receive plenty of touches during games. He should be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues because of his abilities in the running and passing game.

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson said he still wants to post at least 1,000 rushing yards and 1,000 receiving yards in the same season.
Huddle Up: Johnson will be working in a new offense next season but should continue to be a focal point for the Cardinals. He likely will be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues in 2019.

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson said he is excited to work out of the shotgun in head coach Kliff Kingsbury's offense. 'I think it really opens up more space for me and makes me able to read the defense a little bit more,' Johnson said.
Huddle Up: Johnson struggled with efficiency last year, but if Kingsbury opens up the offense and utilizes Johnson as a receiver more often, a return to RB1 production isn't out of the question. He should at least be able to provide volume-based RB2 numbers.

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson is going to remain a big part of the offense, according to offensive line coach Sean Kugler, and Kugler said people will be 'surprised' by how much the Cardinals run the ball in 2019.
Huddle Up: It's unlikely that the Cardinals will become a run-first team with Kliff Kingsbury now the coach, but Johnson's versatility allows him to contribute as a runner and a receiver. He should at least be a volume-based RB2.
