3 Reasons why David Johnson will bounce back with Texans in 2020
2. His receiving abilities bring hope to the offense
If there is one aspect about the Houston Texans offense in 2020, it will be that they have running backs who can catch the football, as the “Johnson & Johnson” duo of David Johnson and Duke Johnson are sure to turn some heads with their ability to catch the football this upcoming season.
David Johnson is an exciting player when he catches the football, and not too long ago during the 2016 season he had the 879 yards receiving. Looking back at the season, some of his numbers are out of this world.
Johnson had one game in ’16 where he caught eight passes for 103 yards and a touchdown, and two other games where he caught for over 90 yards in a game that same season.
Even in ’18 when he caught for 446 yards on 50 receptions, Johnson had a game against the Kansas City Chiefs where he caught seven passes for 85 yards and a touchdown, and in that same game he rushed 21 times for 98 yards.
The skill set is still there for Johnson. Just last season, Johnson caught eight passes for 99 yards against the Seattle Seahawks, and in three other games he had receiving totals of 55 yards, 65 yards and 68 yards all within the first six weeks of the season.
The ability to make the Texans offense special with the way he catches the football makes for some exciting potential, and if a “bounce back” season were to occur, that skillset will need to be front and center.
