Johnson has been out of the lineup each of the past four weeks, but he told reporters he expects to be “fully in” on Sunday vs. the Colts. Johnson missed three straight games after landing on the IR with a concussion, and he missed last week’s contest after landing on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Johnson was able to practice on Wednesday, but he was officially activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list on Wednesday night.
Johnson’s return would result in a significant loss of value for Duke Johnson. He operated as the Texans’ lead back in each of the past four weeks, but he should return to a reserve role vs. the Colts.
Even if Da. Johnson is active, there’s no guarantee that he will provide value in fantasy this week. The Texans’ offense stumbled to just 263 yards and seven points last week vs. the Bears, and the Colts represent another difficult matchup. They rank sixth in Football Outsiders’ defensive DVOA this season.
