Running Back Rankings Week 4: David Johnson

How the mighty have fallen in the fantasy football running back rankings as we get ready for Week 4. David Johnson has been a perennial top-three fantasy option when he has been healthy for the past three years.

Now that the Cardinals don’t know how to use him and refuse to have him line up on the outside, Johnson has been a bust so far this year based on his draft position.

Find out where Johnson ranks this week and who is ahead of him in the Week 4 running back rankings. Don't forget that bye weeks are now in effect. It's Carolina and Washington only for Week 4 but that still means no Christian McCaffrey or Adrian Peterson (or Chris Thompson/C.J. Anderson).
