first_img Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The failure to utilize Johnson sits at the top of McCoy’s failures with the Cardinals.The start to 2018 has been a far cry from 2016, when Johnson put up 2,118 yards from scrimmage while lining up as a receiver 20 percent of the time. This season, it was just 3.5 percent entering Thursday’s game, according to NFL.com’s Graham Barfield.Johnson rushed 14 times for just 39 yards against Denver.That’s just one factor in the lack of creativity the offense has displayed this season.The wide receiver room has looked largely unable to create space and make plays.
