2024 Season Outlooks

The Bears backfield got crowded this offseason with the addition of D'Andre Swift, and we'll see what that means for Johnson, the second-year running back. At the time of publication, Khalil Herbert is also on Chicago's roster, but there's the potential of Herbert getting traded, which would be great for Johnson. Most likely, Johnson will have a role in the passing game for the Bears, but we'd love to see him entrenched as the No. 2 running back behind Swift. That would likely allow Johnson the chance for guaranteed touches, as well as being a lottery ticket in case Swift ever got hurt. However, if Herbert remains in Chicago, then it could be tough to trust Johnson until we see his role. Plan on taking a flier on Johnson with a late-round pick in all leagues, and his value would rise if Herbert is traded. As a rookie in 2023, Johnson was underwhelming at 6.8 PPR points per game, but we expect him to perform at a higher level this season, especially if he was No. 2 on the depth chart behind Swift.

Johnson returns for his sophomore season, where he will share a backfield with D'Andre Swift and Khalil Herbert. The former fourth-rounder was efficient in his rookie season, finishing top 20 in fantasy points per touch, and top 30 in yards per rush, targets, receptions and receiving yards. Unfortunately, he didn't touch the ball very much (49th among RBs) and his role doesn't look to change in 2024 with Swift, and perhaps Herbert, ahead of him. While talented, Johnson checks in outside the top 50 at the position and can be added off of waivers rather than drafted.
