Johnson ran 17 times for 86 yards and two touchdowns Thursday against Indianapolis. He caught one pass, but lost two yards on that reception.
The overall line looks solid for Johnson, but owners probably had their eyes set on a monstrous outing following an eight carry, 70 yard, two score opening. Quick math tells you that Johnson ran for just six yards on nine carries after that early outburst. He's quietly scored five times in the last four weeks, but is still averaging just 3.8 yards per carry. That's a reasonable expectation for Week 12, when Johnson faces an Oakland defense that allows 3.69 yards per rush.
