2024 RTSports Outlook

Johnson played five games with the Saints last season, rushing 12 times for just 24 yards. His career is trending the wrong way. He is 31 years old, so the end could be near. Johnson will just look to land a roster spot this year to serve a reserve role. Johnson does well between the tackles but has plenty of speed to make plays to the outside. He also catches the ball well and is a top threat in the passing game. He hasn't been nearly as explosive in recent years, though, and struggled to make many big plays.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Johnson continues to see his production dip. He is not draft material. He might get a few hundred total yards if all goes well.

Dynasty | Free agent running back David Johnson is retiring from the NFL. Dynasty Analysis: Johnson had a monster 2016 season that featured more than 2,000 yards from scrimmage and a whopping 20 touchdowns for the Cardinals but was never able to replicate that kind of production again. He spent some time with the Texans and Saints over the past few years but in the end, lasted just eight seasons in the league. Such is life in the NFL. If you still had Johnson on your roster, chances are you didn't win your league last season.

Running back David Johnson officially announced his retirement on Sunday. The 32-year-old was taken in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft. He played for three teams, suiting up for the Cardinals, Texans, and Saints. However, Johnson's most productive years were in Arizona, where he had his best season in 2016 by rushing for 1,239 yards and 16 touchdowns off 293 carries and adding 80 catches for 879 yards and four touchdowns. Unfortunately, injuries didn't allow him to recapture the same magic from the 2016 season, although he still had a productive career, ending with 4,071 rushing yards, 2,805 receiving yards, and 57 total touchdowns.
