|One of fantasy football’s 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 league’s 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 team’s 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.
| No surgery needed for David Johnson|

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.
| Cardinals release WR Michael Floyd|

FFToday's Take: Floyd has flopped this season and has lost playing to Jaron Brown and J.J. Nelson throughout the season. J.J. Nelson should see increased playing time although with Cardinals focusing on David Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald and TE Jermaine Gresham in the passing, Nelson is likely to be overvalued in Week 15.
| David Johnson has dislocated finger|
Expected to play without limitations

FFToday's Take: Opposing defenses haven't been able to stop him, so why would a dislocated finger? Seriously, Johnson is averaging over 139 total yards per game and has 55 receptions, making him a PPR goldmine. He also has 11 touchdowns, so he is doing it all and then some. He should be considered a top-three play virtually every week.
