Projections for the season ahead
As the 2019 fantasy football season nears, it's time to examine players who could make or break your fantasy team. Here's a look at Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson and his fantasy outlook for the season ahead.
Johnson ranked second among all running backs in market share of rushing attempts and seventh in market share of targets. So touch volume wasn’t a problem. Quality of touches was, though. Enter the high-volume offense of Kliff Kingsbury, an exciting new quarterback with wheels and a bunch of new pass catchers. The new staff should do better at creating touches in space for Johnson, while Kyler Murray will command more defensive attention than Josh Rosen.

If the Kingsbury-Murray experiment hits, then it could give Johnson upside into the top 3. Even if it disappoints, he should see workhorse touches.
