2017

2016

The Browns didn’t use Johnson much during the first three weeks, easing the rookie into the NFL wars. But he got going in Week 4 at San Diego (116 total yards, TD catch) and was one of the league’s best pass-catching backs for the rest of the year. If you grade all the PPR backs over the final three months, Johnson checks out as the No. 18 option. Most of that was made through yardage, as he only scored two touchdowns. Johnson is a bit undersized and far from a complete player — that 3.8 YPC leaves you a little cold, and Cleveland only gave him about seven rushes per week. But his pass-catching skills will be portable to many different game situations, and we’re excited to see what new head coach Hue Johnson is able to cook up. While Johnson might not have a monstrous upside, the arrow is still pointing up here. And given the ordinary receivers currently on the Browns roster, Johnson has an excellent chance to lead the team in catches.

2015

While first-round selections Melvin Gordon and Todd Gurley dominated the running back talk heading into this year's draft, the next tier of backs wasn't too bad either, and third-round pick Johnson could end up being the best of the bunch. Drawing comparisons to Gio Bernard, Johnson runs with deceptive power for his 5-9 frame, but his true calling card is incredible elusiveness and explosiveness, as he's capable of turning even the smallest seam into a big gain. He's also a polished receiver with the potential to be a three-down back once he improves his blitz pickups. With Terrence West (last year's third-round pick) handling short-yardage situations, Johnson should duck some between-the-tackles punishment and hopefully avoid the injuries that checkered his college career. While second-year player Isaiah Crowell is also a threat to Johnson's playing time, it would be an upset if the rookie didn't emerge with a large role in the Cleveland backfield.
