Houston Texans RB David Johnson rushed six times for 25 yards in Week 2 against the Cleveland Browns and he added two grabs for 22 yards on two targets.
Huddle Up: Remember when Johnson was a bona fide first-round pick in most fantasy leagues? Those days are well in the rear-view mirror, and he is barely worthy of a roster spot at this point. The Texans travel to meet the Carolina Panthers in Week 3 on Thursday.

Houston Texans RB David Johnson rushed three times for 10 yards and caught three of his four targets for 18 yards and a touchdown in a 37-21 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 1.
Huddle Up: Johnson made a little noise as a receiver, but he ranked behind Mark Ingram and Phillip Lindsay in both carries and total touches. If that trend continues, he won't even be worth rostering in PPR formats.

Houston Texans RB David Johnson restructured his deal Tuesday, March 2, and will receive $4.25 million guaranteed out of a maximum contract value of $6 million. His cash total is lower now, but Johnson's previous guaranteed money was $2.1 million.
Huddle Up: Johnson enters the final year of his contract and had been scheduled to carry the sixth-highest cap figure among running backs prior to the renegotiation. He will return for a second year in Houston with what will be a revamped line, although the outlook will be much different if QB Deshaun Watson gets his way with a trade request. Johnson will now be without backfield make Duke Johnson to steal catches, but Houston will likely add another back via the draft and/or free agency. The former Arizona Cardinal is a midrange RB2 or much better flex option, regardless of the scoring system.

Houston Texans RB David Johnson could return to the team next season if he is willing to restructure his contract, according to sources. Johnson is currently scheduled to count $8.512 million against the salary cap in 2021, and the team would save $6.9 million if they cut him at this point.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players can monitor the situation to see if the two sides can reach an agreement. He did post over 1,000 total yards and eight touchdowns in 12 games this past season and should see a majority of the work if he remains with the Texans. He can be considered at least a flex option in fantasy leagues.

Houston Texans RB David Johnson rushed for 128 yards and one touchdown on 12 carries against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 16. He also caught three passes for 11 yards and one touchdown during the game.
Huddle Up: Johnson has posted over 100 total yards in each of the last two games and has three total touchdowns over the last three games. He should see plenty of touches next week and can be a No. 2 running back in all fantasy leagues.

Houston Texans RB David Johnson caught 11 passes for 106 yards against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 15. He also rushed for 27 yards on eight carries during the game.
Huddle Up: Johnson shared the carries with Buddy Howell but was a big part of the passing game against the Colts. He should receive a similar workload next week and can be a No. 2 running back or flex option in leagues.

Huddle Up: Johnson will immediately regain his role as the Texans' top back in Week 15 but in a tough matchup against the Indianapolis Colts. He'll be a low-end RB2.
