So he uses David Johnson, who lines up mostly in the backfield and acts as a poor man's FB. Over the course of 2 years, Johnson has caught 6 passes.

I have no beef with Johnson and do think he's improved as a blocker. But what the hell? He obviously isn't acting like a TE, doesn't have the receptions and seems to start in the backfield. Why not just get a true FB and get those lead blocks we expect?
In other words, Arians is a moron.
