David Johnson, Houston Texans vs. Tennessee Titans
Mixed in with the expected weeks off due to injuries, Johnson is showing that he is a good player when healthy. He’s had over 100 all-purpose yards in two straight weeks and he’s scored in double-digit fantasy points in all but three games that he’s played. He scored in six different games and finished in the top 15 four times and is coming off his best game of the season.
Meanwhile, the Titans have been annihilated by running backs this season and six have reached 20.0 PPR fantasy points against them including two in their last two games, both rookies. 17 running backs in all have scored double-digit points against the Titans, some multiple times. Do not think that for a second that the Texans are laying down on this game. They’re looking to spoil and Johnson is always playing with something to prove.
