2021 Outlook
Depth Chart
Remember 2016 when David Johnson was a fantasy stud in Arizona? That year, he amassed over 2,000 total yards from scrimmage and 20 TD's. Unfortunately, he hasn't been able to regain that form, but saw a slight resurgence in his first season in Houston in 2020. He averaged nearly 5.0 yards per carry and totaled just over 300 receiving yards and eight total touchdowns.

He appears to be the lead dog in a crowded RB room, and the new coaching staff has talked about a re-dedication to the run game. The problem is the Texans' frustratingly ineffective defense. Their inability to get off the field severely limits Houston's offensive snaps every week, and their inability to keep opponents out of the end zone forces the offense into full-on catch-up mode - great for the passing attack, not so much for the run game. Even Johnson's strong receiving skills won't help him, though. His 46 targets in 2020 were the lowest of any season in which he played at least 12 games.

All of the above makes Johnson a marginal RB2 at best. Throw in the fact that Phillip Lindsay, Rex Burkhead, and Mark Ingram could all be vying for snaps (at least for now - we'll see if all three survive cut downs) and DJ begins to sound like an uninspiring pick in the middle rounds.
