Depth Chart
David Johnson touched the ball a league-most 373 times last season, which he turned into an impressive 2,118 total yards and 20 touchdowns. His 80 catches in the passing game were best among running backs in the NFL - five more than Le'Veon Bell and 20 more than third-place finisher James White. Needless to say, Johnson is a player who can truly do it all for your fantasy team and it makes sense why he's practically locked in at No. 1 or No. 2 overall in most leagues. What's interesting is that while Johnson had a monster season, the Cardinals as a team still finished 18th in rushing yards. Johnson accounted for a whopping 71.5 percent of the team's ground game and no other player in the offense had even 200 rushing yards on the year. Those numbers are extraordinarily high and indicate that Johnson might be the biggest bell-cow of any running back in the entire league. However, it also means that he's bound to have some wear and tear by the end of the season.

The Cardinals offensive line remains a liability in pass protection but they're actually a solid run-blocking offensive line with the likes of guards Evan Boehm and Mike Iupati. That, combined with his high usage, make Johnson one of the safest first round running backs - if there is such a thing - that we've seen in recent years. The added concerns of legal issues over the past few seasons for the other top backs, Le'Veon Bell and Ezekiel Elliott, should give Johnson an even stronger case to be selected as the No. 1 player drafted in fantasy drafts.

Injury David Johnson to get cast removed Monday
Chances of 2017 return following wrist surgery still unknown
By: Doug Orth | Thu Nov 9, 7:20 pm

Arizona Cardinals
(David Johnson's) cast comes off on Monday, and that’s important for Johnson, who doesn’t want 2017 to end up as a completely lost season. Whether Johnson can figure in that playoff push remains to be seen. He says he wants to return this season regardless of the Cardinals’ record, even if they never win another game. He won’t know anything definitively until the cast comes off. Then the doctors will assess how stiff, or atrophied, the wrist it, and they’ll design a rehabilitation plan for Johnson for the wrist specifically. (SI.com - Greg Bishop)

FFToday's Take: Consider this a non-update update, outside of the fact Johnson will have his cast removed early next week. Owners who have held onto him this long might as well continue to do so, but there are a ton of things that must go right for him in order for him to see the field again in 2017. Even then, how will the backfield workload be split between him and Adrian Peterson? Answers may be coming in the next week or so, but there are still no guarantees he makes it back.
