...said no one else ever.

I’m a huge fan of Duke. I think he was mis-used in Cleveland and I definitely think he can be “the guy” in Houston. My biggest concern is their horrid line play, not his size or ability to carry the b

Oh, come on boys. It’s so obvious.  Houston is Duke Nuk ‘Em

Without their best offense lineman today

Yeah, he wasnt doing good before Tunsil was out.

Now, he goes for 20/120/2 cuz we are most likely to bench him.

Rolling Ahmed over him after watching what happened to the Broncos last week, which means he will suck. lol

I’m doing the same.  Same rationale.    I hope it works out for us.

Why do bad football players get jobs in the NFL when we know they are bad?

Jesus, give a scrub off the street a shot to play if this is what so called NFL players can do.

Why is this guy on an NFL roster. We need to talk more about players and why theya re on rosters when they never perform.

He has never been good. Just like I say in other threads, give other players a shot if bad players are always bad. 

Side note, im big on player develpoment and getting rid of washed up players.

Duke Johnson rushed nine times for 37 yards, hauling in 3-of-4 targets for 43 yards and one touchdown reception in Houston's Week 12 win against the Lions.

Johnson hauled in a 33-yard touchdown to salvage his fantasy day, but the real takeaway is that he has yet to surpass 54 rushing yards in three starts for David Johnson (concussion, IR) and merely out-touched C.J. Prosise 12-6 against Detroit. The latter was also used over Duke inside the 10-yard line Thursday, scoring Houston's first touchdown — a receiving score — of the game. Suddenly lacking a stranglehold of both the carries and targets among this backfield, Johnson has dipped to fringe-RB2 status for the rest of the year. It's also possible David Johnson returns in Week 13 against the Colts.

Really confusing usage... they came into the game determined to pass the rock. This isn't a team that will #EstablishTheRun and they don't run block well, but you'd think this was the game to use him considering Detroit hemorrhages yards against the run.

I had to pick up Duke out of desperation. No way I feel good about starting him. 
 

Is David Johnson expected to be out for just week 14 or longer?

How I understood it is if he leaves the team to go back home(which he did), then he automatically goes into the COVID protocol for 7 days (?) and cannot rejoin until he passes a test.  This was from Chicago radio.

It’s Duke or Engram for me in dynasty playoffs. I don’t think the game will come down to 1 play,  but I’m struggling with this decision. We have 6 flex so I can truly play either with no other lineup ramifications. 

Luckily my opponent started Cam (4.4) and Harris (6) so it doesn’t feel desperate. Would still be nice to make the right call. Very tempting to go Engram with Jones back, but I worry about him tweaking that hammy again. 

feels like a coin flip.

I'd probably go engram. Duke bombed 2 of his 3 starts when David was out before, and the only one he didn't was against the Lions, who are possibly the best matchup a RB can have.

That’s how I have it set at the moment.

only think that has me tempted is that this is a different Texans offense with no Fuller, Cooks questionable & Coutee with a knee issue (full practice tho) 

Duke could be a higher priority in the passing game. tempting.

This is very tempting. I picked him up as an emergency option if Drake was ruled out but there is a chance he is a bigger part of the offense today due to injuries.  I do not think I can pull the switch though. He is hard to trust in a playoff match up but if you do and he goes off what a great call that would be. The risk though.

I'm a Duke apologist and think that on the right team with the right scheme he still has 2-3 years of RB2/flex production. That said, I would have to be bottom of the barrel to be considering him at RB2/flex. 

I agree.  I’m deciding between Duke, Mike Davis and Swift today.

Good or bad for Duke (or no impact)?

HOU - WR Brandin Cooks Not Expected To Play

Summary: Ian Rapoport reported, "More on #Texans-#Bears: Houston WR Brandin Cooks, dealing with foot and neck issues, is not expected to play today, source said. Barring a significant late improvement, they’ll be down a weapon."

Speaking of bottom of the barrel, I'm down to Duke, DeAndre Washington, Jamaal Williams, or Chase Edmonds (or other similar WW fodder).

I really have no other options.  My other choices beside Duke are Barber and Mattison.

I'd roll the dice on Washington or Chase (Chase for sure if ppr). With Washington, just hope for 60/1 day. Seems reasonable. Chase is no brainer in ppr. Even with Drake he is capable of RB1 days.

Duke Johnson rushed eight times for 26 yards and caught two targets for 53 yards in the Texans' Week 14 loss to the Bears. 

Partially because of the offensive line, the Texans have turned into the worst rushing offense in the NFL this season. Johnson isn't helping either. Most of his runs ended in a cloud of dust near the line of scrimmage, and he lost touches to Buddy Howell in garbage time with the Bears winning by 29 points. Johnson isn't a starting-caliber player and is more of a fantasy RB3 than RB2 when David Johnson misses. Things will not be easier in Indianapolis in Week 15.

I mean if you started him as a flex in Standard you got 7.9 FP. You'll take that.

Duke Johnson (ankle) did not practice Thursday. 

This is a downgrade for Johnson, who got in a limited practice on Wednesday. Without a limited Friday practice, he could sit this week against the Colts. Meanwhile, David Johnson is practicing in full after being removed from the reserve/COVID-19 list and could see significant volume if Duke is sidelined.

Duke Johnson (neck) remained sidelined on Thursday. 

All signs point toward Johnson missing another game against the Bengals, burnishing David Johnson's RB2 appeal after he exploded for 11 receptions in Week 15. Now 27 and in the midst of a consistently disappointing season, Duke's Dynasty league light is dimming.

Duke Johnson (neck) is out for Week 16 against the Bengals.

With Duke Johnson out last week, David Johnson caught 10 passes for 106 yards as a near every-down player. That will be the case once again, vaulting the veteran into the upside RB2 mix. It's possible that Duke Johnson's season is over with only two games remaining. C.J. Prosise will be the No. 2 back.
