Duke Johnson Barely Used In Run Game

Houston Texans running back Duke Johnson had just one carry on Sunday against the Broncos, a touch that gained five yards. He was targeted eight times in the passing game, catching six of those for 40 yards. Johnson's usage looked a lot more like most expected it would when he was traded to the Texans, and this is starting to look like a trend. That's good for Johnson owners in PPR leagues, who might finally be able to trust him in their lineups in 12-team or deeper leagues.

Duke Johnson's Role Should Expand In Week 14

Houston Texans running back Duke Johnson saw his most targets and tied for his most carries of the season against the Patriots in Week 13 while playing a season-high 67 percent of offensive snaps, a sign that the pass-catching back might be moving towards a larger role in this offense. That gives him some intriguing upside in Week 14 against a Denver team that's done better against running backs on the ground than through the air. This could be a game that favors Johnson over teammate Carlos Hyde, though Johnson's still no more than a PPR RB3 because of the downside he presents, like the fact that in Weeks 11 and 12 he combined for just 12 receiving yards.

Duke Johnson Grabs Receiving Touchdown

Houston Texans running back Duke Johnson had five catches for 54 yards and a score in Sunday's win over the New England Patriots. He also had nine carries for a team-high 36 rushing yards. Houston couldn't find room on the ground, but moved the ball at will through the air, which benefited Johnson. He's still a low-floor fantasy option who quarterback Deshaun Watson hasn't looked to enough in the pass game, but Sunday showed why Houston needs to get Johnson more involved. Maybe this game is a sign of his future usage.
