Kerryon Johnson is a great player, but his situation is far from ideal. He is entering possibly the most crowded backfield in the NFL; however, this backfield is so complex that they don’t seem to have a lead back right now. That gives Johnson an opportunity to snag that position. But there are still other backs there that will make it hard for there to be one clear starter. So why do I like Johnson? In his preseason performance(and yes, I know it’s only preseason) he shined and showed what he can bring to the table. This talent he has is something that makes me want to take a risk on him. If he breaks from the committee and gets more carries, he could be a great fantasy asset. In my opinion, he has got to be the most talented but the roles the other backs will have will hurt him. I see Blount as the goal line guy and Riddick will be the receiving back, really hurting Johnson’ s value in his PPR. This all hurts Johnson, but we know that the upside is there. A couple big games and he’ll start to see more action of the field. Johnson’s ADP though is fairly high, making him a low-end RB3/high-end RB4. I’m willing to snag Johnson as my RB4, as he doesn’t contain too much risk at that level on your team, but has the potential to be much more, if he gets a lot of work. But that is a really big if, and that’s why I probably wouldn’t trust him as my RB3. I’d need to have great starting running backs, and I would have to build up the rest of my core too. I don’t want to take a risk, as I would probably need to rely on him in my lineup a few times during the course of the season. Johnson has so much potential, and we’ll just have to wait to see how the Lions deserve to use him. He’s someone I would make sure not to reach on, but if he’s falling, I would definitely snag him for the tremendous upside he holds this year.
