Ty Johnson Shows Off Speed

Detroit Lions running back Ty Johnson continues to prove that he deserves the third spot on the Lions running back depth chart. Johnson rushed four times for just nine yards and had one catch for 11 yard against the Bills in Week 3 of preseason but he showed off his lethal speed. Johnson is a player to keep an eye on; right now, he is totally off fantasy radar but if Kerryon Johnson or C.J. Anderson go down with an injury, Ty Johnson could begin to make an impact.

Ty Johnson Plays Well In First Preseason Game

Detroit Lions running back Ty Johnson was able to put together two solid runs in Week 1 of preseason despite the Lions offense getting thrashed by the Patriots defense all game. With three attempts, Johnson was able to collect 22 yards, with a long of 17 yards. His long run displayed his outside speed; beating numerous defenders to the sidelines and getting vertical effectively. One of his shorter runs displayed his inside patience and ability to find a gap in the defense and accelerate. Johnson remains as the third RB on the Lions depth chart but could earn some regular season touches if he continues to play well. If Kerryon Johnson goes down with an injury, Ty Johnson becomes an excellent fantasy pick-up.

Ty Johnson Could Earn Touches In 2019

Detroit Lions running back Ty Johnson not only proved himself as a special teams and utility type player at Maryland but also as a solid running back. With the release of running back Theo Riddick, Johnson now has the opportunity to compete with Kerryon Johnson and C.J. Anderson for touches. Kerryon is the clear cut RB1 in Detroit but it would not be unlikely to see Ty and Anderson finish the season with about the same amount of touches. Ty Johnson is an extremely deep option in all fantasy formats but is worth keeping an eye on; his talent could certainly boost him up the Lions depth chart.
