David Johnson's Fantasy Scouting Report

DAILY FANTASY PROJECTIONS AND PLAY OR FADE ADVICE

He is projected for 15.6 FanDuel points and 18.1 points on DraftKings. Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is worth +$2440 more than $6.8K on FanDuel and +$2276 more than $5.6K on DraftKings. There may be other options (see below) who are even better values, but barring a significant lineup change consider him a strong daily fantasy play. Below are how he ranks based on projected fantasy points on both DFS platforms. Look for players with more FPs at lower salaries.

These projections power SportsLine's Computer Picks and Fantasy Data. But for contest winning DFS optimal lineups by top experts like Mike McClure visit SportsLine's new Daily Fantasy Hub.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect David Johnson to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 112 projected fantasy points puts him at #8 behind James Conner and ahead of James Robinson. He has averaged 8.95 fantasy points in his past 30 games, which is less than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 12.4 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#13) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly less valuable in PPR leagues where he is the #9 ranked running back. He is underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 99%, he is the #19 most highly owned running back. David Johnson is expected to improve on this season-to-date's #33 fantasy position rank.

DAVID JOHNSON WEEK 9 AND 10 FANTASY OUTLOOK

David Johnson is projected for 14.3 fantasy points which is good enough to be the #6 ranked running back and a must start for most owners. This is projected to be a better than average week with more fantasy points than he is projected to average the rest of the season. He is ranked above Josh Jacobs but behind Alvin Kamara. Week 10 will not be as good based on projected rank (#12). He is projected for 12.6 fantasy points.
