Texans rule out David Johnson (quad) for Week 16

The Houston Texans have ruled out running back David Johnson (quad) for their Week 16 game against the Los Angeles Chargers.

What It Means:

Johnson wasn't able to practice during the week while he dealt with a quad injury, so his inactive status this week shouldn't come as much of a surprise. With Johnson sidelined, expect the Texans to make strong use of Rex Burkhead.

Our models project Burkhead, who has a $5,400 salary on FanDuel, to score 10.7 fantasy points against the Chargers.
