Duke Johnson only OK in Sunday win

Browns rookie running back Duke Johnson contributed 45 yards on 12 carries in a Sunday defeat of visiting Tennessee.

Johnson received three fewer carries than Isaiah Crowell, but his 3.6 yards per carry proved merely mediocre. The rookie didn't do anything special in this one, but he's too talented to not deliver results if he continues to be given opportunities in the Browns offense.

The team wants to rely on its ground game as much as possible, so there should be enough touches to go around for both Johnson and Crowell to stay fantasy-relevant.

Johnson will try to ramp up the production in Week 3 when Oakland comes to town.
