David Johnson Traded To Texans In Blockbuster Deal

Former All-Pro running back David Johnson has been traded from the Arizona Cardinals to the Houston Texans in a blockbuster deal on Monday. The Texans will take on all of Johnsons $13 million owed to him this year and receive a second-round pick in this year's draft as well as a fourth-round pick in next year's draft. In return, the Cardinals get wide receiverDeAndre Hopkins and a fourth-round pick this year. This is great news for those that held onto Johnson in keeper/dynasty formast after Kenyan Drake took his job last season. He should immediately step into the primary role and goal-line duties, withDuke Johnson being used in a third-down and change-of-pace role. If healthy, DJ could easily rebound to RB1 status in 2020 in his new digs. With Hopkins out of the picture in Houston, Will Fuller and Kenny Stills become the team's top two wideouts, with Keke Coutee and Deandre Carter also in the mix. Expect Houston to address the position in free agency and/or the draft.

David Johnson Not A Cut Candidate

Arizona Cardinals general manager Steve Keim said that cutting running back David Johnson "is not an option." Keim also added that "you can't just have one back," and Kenyan Drake, who took over the starting role in the second half last year, is scheduled to be a free agent in March. Johnson ran the ball just 94 times for 345 yards (3.7 yards per carry) and two rushing touchdowns in 13 games last season. He battled nagging injuries that slowed him down and caused him to lose the starting job to Drake. The 28-year-old looked like a shell of his former self, one that ran for 1,239 yards and 16 touchdowns in 2016. Even if DJ returns in 2020, it seems unlikely that he'll be a bell-cow back with all of his injury concerns.

David Johnson Should Sit In Week 17

Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson has just 17 touches in the last four games as he has fallen out of favor once the team acquired running back Kenyan Drake. He's not worth starting against the Los Angeles Rams, and there's no point in handcuffing him to Drake any longer. Look for Johnson, who just turned 28, to land an opportunity to start for another team in the offseason.
