Fantasy Football Sleepers to Target in 2016 – Number 3: Duke Johnson
The Cleveland Browns aren’t known for much in the league (not anything good anyway), but Duke Johnson could be worth drafting this year when it comes to fantasy football sleepers.
Johnson was great in PPR leagues last year, but should be able to put up decent numbers in regular formatted leagues this season. Hue Jackson is the new head coach of the Browns and Robert Griffin III is the new quarterback in town. Both of these guys should give Johnson even more help towards building solid stats.
Johnson’s best outing in 2015 came against the Chargers when he put up 17 points in leagues. A lot of people probably scooped him up after that, but he never hit the double digit points again after that outing.
With Isaiah Crowell also a running back for the Browns, Johnson won’t get all of the carries. This is why he’s a solid sleeper pick.
