Ty Johnson Not A Lock To Make 2020 Roster

Detroit Lions running back Ty Johnson won't be a guarantee to make the team's roster going into training camp, in the opinion of The Athletic's Chris Burke. Johnson, a sixth-round pick in 2019, ended his rookie season with 63 carries for 273 yards (4.3 yards per carry) and no touchdowns on the ground. The Lions notably didn't give him a very big workload when Kerryon Johnson was hurt last year either, and he'll have to compete with Bo Scarbrough, J.D. McKissic, Tra Carson and Wes Hills for depth behind Kerryon Johnson this summer. Even if he makes the roster out of camp, Johnson won't be guaranteed many touches as the second or third running back.

Ty Johnson Gains Just 21 Yards In Week 12

Detroit Lions running back Ty Johnson wasn't able to do much with his limited touches in Week 12 against the Redskins. Johnson carried the ball four times for 11 yards and added two catches for 10 yards on two targets. He's failed to top 25 yards from scrimmage in three straight games now. Bo Scarbrough is the clear No. 1 running back in Detroit right now with Johnson and J.D. McKissic as his backups. Johnson can be dropped or left on waivers in all leagues at this point.

Ty Johnson Will Play Against Cowboys

Detroit Lions running back Ty Johnson (concussion) has been cleared from the league's concussion protocol and was removed from the final Week 11 injury report against the Cowboys. He is good to go for Sunday. It's bad news for those that were looking to start J.D. McKissic as a deep league PPR flex, but he'll still be involved on passing downs this weekend. Johnson should see most of the early down carries, but he hasn't been efficient at all since Kerryon Johnson was lost for the season. Johnson is merely a last-gasp flex in deeper leagues, especially with quarterback Matthew Stafford (back) out for the second straight game.
