Kerryon Johnson A High-Upside RB2 In Week 3 Matchup

Detroit Lions running back Kerryon Johnson could be in line for a big Week 3 performance against an ailing Philadelphia Eagles squad. Johnson should be able to do some damage through the air against an Eagles Defense that has allowed 15 receptions to running backs through the first two weeks of the season, and with Eagles defensive tackle Tim Jernigan sitting out this week, finding holes on the ground will be an easier task as well. Johnson has the chance to see an expanded workload after the recent release of C.J. Anderson and will slot in as a high-upside RB2 in what could be a shootout at the Linc.

Kerryon Johnson Satisfies Owners In Week 2

Detroit Lions running back Kerryon Johnson delivered a decent performance for fantasy owners that started him in PPR leagues Sunday, but those who started him in non-PPR leagues are probably singing a different tune. Johnson accumulated 41 yards on 12 carries while adding two catches for 47 yards and a touchdown against the Chargers, but he was unable to find any consistency with 30 of his 41 ground yards gained during the first half. On the bright side, Johnson did out-touch backfield mates C.J. Anderson and Ty Johnson by a healthy margin, running the ball 12 times as opposed to five each for the backups. Fantasy owners are certainly hoping for more going forward, though. Johnson will be a middling RB2 option this week with a solid Philadelphia Eagles run defense on deck.

Kerryon Johnson Looking To Bounce Back After Lackluster Week 1

Detroit Lions running back Kerryon Johnson will look to bounce back in Week 2 against the Los Angeles Chargers after a disappointing 49-yard performance to kick off the season. Johnson was the No. 1 option in the Lions backfield Sunday but ceded a worrisome 11 touches to C.J. Anderson while drawing the same amount of targets as newcomer J.D. McKissic. It wasn't the split fantasy owners were hoping for, but as long as Johnson keeps getting 18-plus touches a game, he should remain firmly in the RB2 conversation. The Chargers run defense was just scorched by the Colts to the tune of 203 yards, and they present a solid bounce-back opportunity for Johnson. He will remain an RB2 this week, but as Week 1 showed, the boom-or-bust potential is very real.
