running back Duke Johnson is a man of many talents on the field. But one area of the game in particular catches his fancy.Johnson Youth Chris Hubbard Jersey , who is entering his fourth season with the Browns, is open to the idea of catching the ball on a full-time basis, going so far as to actively lobby head coach Hue Jackson for a position change, as he told cleveland.com:Before anyone gets the idea that Johnson is unhappy with his current role, especially fresh off a contract extension in the offseason, he went on to say that he would only be bummed out if the Browns limited him to simply running the ball.That is not likely to happen, however, given how effective Johnson is in the passing game. A year ago he set a team record for running backs with 74 receptions, surpassing Greg Pruitt’s 65 receptions in 1981. Those 74 receptions were the fourth most for a running back in the NFL, and Johnson’s 693 receiving yards were third best at the position.Johnson has caught 188 passes in his three years with the Browns, placing him at No. 25 on the franchise’s all-time receptions list. Another solid season this fall and Johnson could finish the year solidly in the team’s top 20 list for career receptions.That seems very likely given that the Browns signed running back Carlos Hyde in free agency and selected running back Nick Chubb in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft. They should see the bulk of the carries this season http://www.brownsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-terrance-mitchell-jersey , limiting the amount of touches Johnson sees in the run game. (Another area where Johnson holds his own as he has averaged 4.2 yards per carry in his career.)No matter what position he is listed at, Johnson adds a valuable, if sometimes overlooked, presence to the passing game. Having him on the field with wide receivers Jarvis Landry and Corey Coleman, along with tight end David Njoku, provides an array of problems for opposing defenses, and a reliable target for quarterbacks Tyrod Taylor and Baker Mayfield. Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse — a survey of fans across the NFL, powered by SurveyMonkey. Each week, we send 32 polls to 100+ plugged in fans from each team. Browns fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.The Week 6 polls are in, so let’s look at the results to see how optimistic Browns fans are getting!How confident are you in the direction of the team? Last week: 83 percent confidenceThis week Genard Avery Jersey , 96% of fans voted for their confidence in the direction of the Browns, a 13% increase from last week. Cleveland has now bounced exactly from 83% to 96% from Weeks 3 to 4, and now from Weeks 5 to 6, to correspond with the team’s wins and losses.The 96% confidence mark is the highest in the AFC North. If you recall, the Ravens were at a perfect 100% last week. All it took was one loss to the Browns for that confidence to plummet to 42%! The Bengals are at 87% confidence, while the Steelers are at 36% confidence.Will the Browns make the playoffs?In a new question this week, fans were asked if they thought the Browns would make the playoffs. Some may look at 43% of fans saying “yes” as being way too optimistic, but I actually see it as quite reserved. The 96% confidence from early shows that fans really like the overall direction the team is headed, but aren’t convinced that will lead to an immediate playoff spot in 2018.Will the Browns win or lose in Week 5?Odds: Chargers are 1.5-point favoritesDawgs By Nature FanPulse: Browns by 5Bolts from the Blue FanPulse: Chargers by 6Each fanbase is confidence in their respective team’s chances of winning this week.Who is the best team in the NFL?Between the Rams and the Chiefs, fans across all SB Nation sites gave the honor to the Rams of being the best team in the NFL. That was my selection too — but it would be a heck of a game to see if they squared off against each other.
