2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
One of fantasy footballís biggest breakout stars, David Johnson can be largely credited with winning a lot money for fantasy owners in his rookie season of 2015. Johnson started the behind both Andre Ellington and Chris Johnson in the Arizona backfield, thus making him a late-round option if he was even drafted at all, but he now heads into the 2016 season as a potential first round fantasy selection despite a mixture of coachspeak and varying opinions by beat reporters on the expected workload split from all three backs.

The most likely scenario involves Johnson shouldering the load in what should again be one of the leagueís most high-powered offenses. He figures to have plenty of opportunities to put up big fantasy numbers once again. He quietly led the entire league in fantasy points per touch (among running backs who played 50% or more of their teamís snaps) and should be in line for somewhere between 250 to 300 touches in 2016. That kind of workload in this offense gives him the realistic possibility of finishing as the highest-scoring running back in all of football.

News From The Past 90 Days
Cardinals re-sign RB Andre Ellington
One-year deal
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Mar 13, 2:03 pm

Arizona Cardinals
The Cardinals depth chart at running back became clearer on Monday with the news that Andre Ellington has re-signed with the team. Ellington, an unrestricted free agent, agreed to a one-year contract. Financial terms were not immediately available. (Arizona Republic)

FFToday's Take: The Cardinals are thin at the RB spot with only Kerywnn Williams behind rockstar David Johnson. With Johnson being used as a three-down workhorse the backup running back position in Arizona only worthy of a deep bench stash.


Injury No surgery needed for David Johnson
Sprained MCL
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Jan 2, 1:00 pm

Arizona Cardinals
An MRI on running back David Johnsonís left knee revealed no serious structural damage, and he will not need surgery. Johnson suffered an MCL sprain, which often keeps a player out of action four to six weeks. (Arizona Republic)

FFToday's Take: Johnson's injury looked worse so it's good news he's only facing a sprained knee. Johnson was fantasy's best running back in 2016 and he'll likely be the top ranked running back on the board in re-draft leagues next Summer.
