If not the most disliked members of the Houston Texans defense, then Lonnie Johnson Jr. has to be up there. Unfortunately, Johnson has been in the wrong spot at, wrong time, as he’s allowed three games of opponents generating 100 percent or more in passer rating when he’s been targeted.

According to Pro Football Reference, one would think Johnson would have a ton of penalties on the season, but he only has three. He hasn’t made fans happy, and that is why he lands on this list. On top of the whole Justin Reid situation, the Texans could be looking at an entirely new safety lineup come 2022.

RB David Johnson

David Johnson hasn’t been the same since he elected to have surgery on his broken wrist after one game in 2017, ending his season. Since then, he’s looked shellshocked out on the playing field. Being a part of Houston’s incredibly silly “five-man” running back depth chart to start the season, Johnson has only gained 176 yards rushing through 11 games.

On top of that, blocking mistakes and falling down wide open on screen plays will also damage your image.
