Running Back BC Lions
June 18, 2018 Jeremiah Johnson News
RotoWire Fantasy Analysis
Johnson rushed 10 times for 52 yards in Saturday's 22-10 defeat of Montreal. He also added two receptions for four yards.
With only the diminutive return man Chris Rainey backing him up in Week 1, Johnson still did not lead the Lions in rushing yards. That honor instead belonged to his quarterback. Nevertheless, the Oregon product carried the ball effectively enough, averaging 5.2 YPC. It remains to be seen what will happen to his workload after the coming bye week once Travon Van (suspended - family matter) and Brandon Rutley (undisclosed injury) presumably return for Week 3 at Edmonton.
