Stock Watch: David Johnson
Stock Watch: David Johnson

This article is part of our Dynasty Watch series.

I'm trying to assemble this year's NFL coach/coordinator grid at the moment and it will take a while, so over the next couple weeks I'll be a bit distracted from the dynasty-specific content.

To keep that section of our coverage from going totally silent in that span, though, I'll try to post a few of these relatively brief entries where we consider the general valuation of assorted players. This article will look at David Johnson.

David Johnson, RB, ARZ (6-1, 224) [12/16/1991]

2018 stats: 940 yards (3.6 YPC) and seven touchdowns on 258 carries, 50 catches for 446 yards and three touchdowns on 76 targets (65.8 percent catch rate, 5.9 YPT)

Johnson's 2018 season was pretty much a disaster. His output came nowhere close to justifying his price tag, which was generally in the first three picks and almost universally no lower than the fifth pick. His 2019 market reception understandably implies some significant public anxiety about Johnson's future, to the point that it seemingly can recall almost nothing about his past.

Johnson's current ADP – 16th overall on DRAFT.com as of this writing – seemingly contains a punitive element due to bitterness over last year's results. Last year was basically the worst-case 16-game scenario possible for Johnson, and he still finished with an average of 12.4 points per game in standard scoring and 15.5 per game in PPR. He finished 10th among running backs in standard scoring points, yet his ADP on DRAFT is that of RB11.
