6 months agoNothing changed about the amount of work David Johnson received in 2018 compared to 2016. DJ's 37.2% dominator rating was third amongst running backs in 2018. He dominated touches in that backfield. The problems all had nothing to do with him. Josh Rosen was dreadful. The offensive line was the worst in the league. The Cardinals' offense averaged the fewest yards per drive. Mike McCoy ran Johnson up the middle over and over again, completely ignoring the fact that DJ's best skill is his ability in the open field. 31.8% of his carries came against stacked boxes. In 2019, DJ's circumstances have gotten a complete makeover. The Cardinals have a new coaching staff, a new quarterback, and two new receivers. They will be going from an antiquated ground and pound offensive scheme to Kilff Kingsbury's Air Raid offense. Kyler Murray's rushing threat will be a boon to DJ's value. Johnson is as motivated as ever to return to glory. Even at age 27, Johnson has relatively little tread on his tires. He has roughly 150 fewer career touches than Ezekiel Elliott. The Cardinals are going to run more plays and score a lot more points. Johnson is still the best pass catching running back in the league and will dominate the backfield touches. 2019 DJ smells a lot like 2017 Todd Gurley. I would take DJ as high as fifth overall and am fully prepared for a resurgent season.--Jason Katz - RotoBaller
