“Backup to Mike Tolbert” is probably not an exciting label to have for Dynasty-Fantasy purposes. However…
Consider, Johnson started his Marshall career as a special teams/linebacker (Fr)…then played a little more as an LB-TE-RB hybrid (Soph.)…and then BOOM: 1,767 yards rushing (8.6 yards per carry) and 19 TDs as a lead running back his junior year — leading the conference in rushing. Ultimately, he ended his career as the Conference USA all-time leader in yards per carry (7.8 ypc).
All this, working at/above 240-pounds.
In his final season, Johnson was hurt and missed several games; ending his career on a whimper. He went undrafted in 2016.
Before you write him off…what might happen if he cuts 15 pounds and becomes a faster, 230-pound wrecking machine? I’m just sayin’…
