Texans to 'open up' playcalling with David Johnson

Houston Texans offensive coordinator Tim Kelly noted that the running back duo of David Johnson and Duke Johnson will 'open up' the playcalling.

What It Means:

In the interview Kelly referenced multiple times how having backs with both receiving and rushing abilities can help the offense become more creative. Last year's Texans saw Carlos Hyde notch 245 carries but just 10 receptions. By comparison, Duke Johnson carried the ball 83 times to 44 receptions.

2019 was a down year for David Johnson, though he was dealing with multiple injuries before his season ended. numberFire projects for him to finish as the RB16 in 2020 despite playing alongside Duke Johnson, and to finish the year with 251.47 carries, 1022.56 rushing yards, and 7.53 touchdowns on the ground, as well as another 31.38 receptions for 263.16 yards and 1.82 touchdowns through the air.
