Cardinals | David Johnson with lofty goals

Thu, 17 May 2018 07:54:41 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) said his wrist feels great, and he's aiming for 1,000 rushing yards and 1,000 receiving yards.

Fantasy Tip: The team will be deploying a fullback this year, which will give him an added layer of protection. They'll have to prove that they can move the ball downfield to keep defenses honest, though. Sam Bradford throws a ton of short passes, and DJ should be an RB1 as long as he's healthy.

Cardinals | David Johnson has high hopes for offense

Wed, 11 Apr 2018 15:30:25 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson said he believes the Cardinals can have the top offense in the NFL in 2018 if QB Sam Bradford can stay healthy.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson should be ready for the start of the 2018 season and will be a big part of the running and passing game. He likely will be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues. Bradford has struggled with injuries during his entire career and should only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

Cardinals | David Johnson officially cleared

Mon, 02 Apr 2018 23:35:04 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) has officially been medically cleared and will not be limited when the club begins their offseason program.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson missed all but one game a year ago but it looks like he'll be ready to roll at full health going into the new campaign. Considering his tremendous second season when he totaled 20 touchdowns, rushed for 1,239 yards on 293 carries and accumulated 879 more yards through the air on 80 catches, Johnson still merits a very early pick in fantasy drafts.

Cardinals | David Johnson should be ready for OTAs

Tue, 27 Mar 2018 05:15:42 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) is expected to be cleared in time for organized team activities next month, according to head coach Steve Wilks.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson will be returning to a different situation with a new head coach and Sam Bradford, who is always hurt, under center. The latter could be good for Johnson because Bradford does a lot of dink-and-dunk passing, which could bring DJ back to a high-end RB1 quickly in PPR formats.

Cardinals | David Johnson recruiting Kirk Cousins

Sat, 10 Mar 2018 19:31:45 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson sent out a tweet Friday, March 9, asking Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins to join him in Arizona.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson's versatility should keep him in the RB1 mix no matter who is under center for the Cardinals in 2018, but luring a reliable quarterback like Cousins would certainly sure up his stock.

Cardinals | David Johnson cleared for activities

Wed, 07 Feb 2018 21:24:53 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) has been fully cleared to resume all football-related activities.

Fantasy Tip: No one had it worse in 2017 than owners of David Johnson, who was lost for the year in only the third quarter of the first game of the NFL campaign. Fortunately, he'll at least be 100 percent for the start of next season. The only thing is that the offense Johnson will be playing for appears murky right now -- the Cardinals have a new head coach and it remains to be seen who will start under center for them in 2018.

Cardinals | David Johnson's wrist is healed

Thu, 18 Jan 2018 17:26:53 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) has his strength and full range of motion back with his injured wrist, which is now healed. He's focused mostly on making sure he's "ready to play" in 2018 and that he is as healthy as possible.

Fantasy Tip: There was arguably no bigger tragedy in fantasy football this year than the unfortunate season-ending injury to Johnson, who was one of the first guys off the board in pretty much all drafts. Making matters worse, the 26-year-old will be returning to unfamiliar surroundings, having a new quarterback and head coach when the new campaign kicks off. Regardless, Johnson should remain one of the highest-ranked running backs going into next season.

Cardinals | David Johnson may not return this year

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 12:42:55 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) has not made the progress he was expected to make in his rehabilitation and is not expected to return this season, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Fantasy Tip: It's hard to release Johnson with anything other than definitive news, but this is as close as we've gotten. It makes sense for the Cardinals to keep Johnson sidelined in a lost season anyway. If you still have him rostered, he can be dropped in redraft leagues.

Cardinals | David Johnson disposes of cast

Mon, 13 Nov 2017 19:45:45 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) announced that the cast on his left wrist was removed Monday, Nov. 13, and he will now begin rehab to restore strength and range of motion. Johnson has previously said that he would like to return this season "no matter the team's record."

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners of Johnson have to love his desire to play before the conclusion of the campaign, but it's hard to see him on the field if the Cardinals are mathematically eliminated from playoff contention by the time he's ready to suit up again. With Carson Palmer also out, this is becoming a lost season for the club, so it would seem more likely than not that the club opts to keep him sidelined if there's nothing on the line.

Cardinals | David Johnson to have cast removed

Thu, 09 Nov 2017 18:30:12 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) is scheduled to have his cast removed Monday, Nov. 13, and he said he is "optimistic" that he will be able to return at some point this season.

Fantasy Tip: While Johnson is hoping to return this year, the Cardinals have already said the running back is likely to miss the remainder of the season. In the meantime, Arizona looks set to feed Adrian Peterson all the carries he can handle.
