The New Orleans Saints face a challenge this weekend unlike any other that one of the NFL's toughest schedules has thrown at them this season.

A transformer.

Arizona running back David Johnson has established himself as the NFL's best offensive weapon this season, producing at least 100 combined yards in every single game, tying an NFL record held by Edgerrin James.

"He’s earning all this praise," Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said. "I was very fortunate to be around Marshall Faulk and Edgerrin James, guys that were similar to him and it’s fun to coach them, because they’re like a toy you can just do so many things and keep (changing). (They’re like) Transformers, you can change them any way you want."

Johnson, a second-year man out of Northern Iowa, has racked up the third-most rushing yards in the NFL with 1,085, and he leads all running backs with 69 catches for 745 yards, all with 15 combined touchdowns.

Brilliant both in the running and passing games, Johnson presents the kind of problem the Saints haven't faced much out of the running back position this year.
