Rapoport: Lions' Kerryon Johnson (knee) should see full workload in Week 16
Detroit Lions running back Kerryon Johnson is expected to see a sizable share of the work on Sunday in the team's Week 16 game against the Denver Broncos, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Sunday marks Johnson's first game back on the field since being placed on the IR after Week 7, and it seems as though he'll be ramped up to full speed immediately. Per Rapoport, "Johnson may not come out as the starter today, but he’s expected to get his full share of carries along with Bo Scarbrough."
Our models project Johnson for 46.3 rushing yards, 16.8 receiving yards, 0.3 total touchdowns and 8.9 FanDuel points.
