What should I do with David Johnson?


As you all know David Johnson went down week 1 and is gonna be out 8-12 weeks if not more. I took him with the #2 overall pick in the draft. Any suggestions on another RB I could get? Thinking about packaging Johnson and Fitzgerald and maybe another for a solid RB2. Let me know please! #footclan-community


Well tell us what rbs are available in your waivers so we can help.


I got Tarik Cohen off waivers and I have Joe Mixon. On the waiver wire there is paul perkins, vereen, rodgers, kamara, thompson, charles, K. Williams, Burkhead.


I’d be interested in knowing your full roster. There are two main options; You could stash Johnson on your bench and weather the storm to finish the season strong if you have other options, or if you have other weaknesses you could package Johnson plus one other player for a solid replacement.


Here’s my roster. Zeke is my only true back. The others are backups/rookies/split carries. That’s why I’m stuck. Can I make it to playoffs with only one true RB. If Zeke goes down then I’m in trouble.
QB Brady
RB David Johnson (now hurt)
RB Zeke (took the risk and drafted him in 2nd round)
WR Crabtree
WR Fitz
TE Walker
FLEX Garçon
K Lutz

RB Tarik Cohen (picked up off waivers this week)
QB Alex Smith
RB Joe Mixon
WR Corey Davis
TE Clay
RB J Allen
