What is Duke Johnson's Value in Houston?

Cleveland gave in to Duke Johnson’s trade request on Thursday, shipping him to Houston for 2020 draft pick. The Texans released D’Onta Foreman over the weekend, so Johnson is likely to step in as the No. 2 back behind starter Lamar Miller. Our experts discuss Johnson’s potential in Houston, especially in the passing game.

What is Duke Johnson’s value in Houston?

JoshADHD: Until we know more, he is only a complement to Lamar Miller. Look to the Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny dynamic in Seattle. I am hopeful that Houston releases Miller to fully install Johnson as the feature back, but the realist in me believes that this simply muddies the situation, and we should be happy with any shares of Johnson we acquired in the double-digit rounds prior to the trade.
