Player Outlook

Josh Johnson is a free agent at the time of publication, and he will look to sign with a team as a backup quarterback. In 2018, Johnson appeared in four games in Washington and had one outing with more than 20 Fantasy points. Keep an eye on his destination this offseason, but he has minimal Fantasy value in most leagues. Ignore him in all formats on Draft Day.

  • Josh Johnson: Undergoes ankle surgery
    By RotoWire Staff

    Johnson underwent surgery on his ankle, Tom Krasovic of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Johnson had been playing with the San Diego Fleet of the AAF but didn't get any game action before his injury. He isn't expected to return to the AAF this season, but he could get a shot with an NFL team after he recovers from surgery.

  • Redskins' Josh Johnson: Could stay in Washington
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Redskins have expressed interest in re-signing Johnson, ESPN.com's John Keim reports. Johnson likely would be brought back for the No. 3 quarterback job, though it isn't clear who would be ahead of him besides Colt McCoy (leg). The mobile 32-year-old created some buzz with his strong garbage-time performance against the Giants in Week 15, followed by a solid effort in Jacksonville the following week to keep Washington in the playoff hunt. Johnson predictably imploded along with the rest of the Redskins offense over the final two games of the season, but he at least did enough to warrant consideration for a 53-man roster spot in 2019. With Alex Smith (leg) uncertain to ever play again, the Redskins have an interesting dilemma at the QB position this offseason.

  • Johnson completed 12 of 27 passes for 91 yards with no touchdowns and one interception in the Redskins' 24-0 loss to the Eagles on Sunday. He also rushed three times for four yards and had a fumble that was recovered by the offense. Johnson finished off his late-season starting stint with a whimper, posting his worst completion percentage and yardage total over that span. The 32-year-old had generated serviceable numbers in his first three games seeing extended action, but an aggressive Eagles defense that was out to do its part to ensure a playoff berth got the best of him throughout the afternoon. In fairness, Johnson was also working with a significantly short-handed pass-catching corps that was missing Jordan Reed (IR-foot), Maurice Harris (IR-concussion) and Vernon Davis (concussion). Johnson reportedly plans to continue his professional career with the San Diego Fleet of the Alliance of American Football this coming February, which will presumably give him a platform to make a case for an NFL return in some capacity in 2019.

  • Redskins' Josh Johnson: Getting Week 17 start
    By RotoWire Staff

    Coach Jay Gruden said Johnson would serve as the Redskins' starting quarterback Week 17 against the Eagles, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports. Johnson has turned in a respectable 7.8 yards per attempt while adding 116 yards on the ground during three outings (two starts) with Washington, but ball security (three interceptions and a fumble) has been an issue. The 32-year-old tossed two of those picks in Saturday's 25-16 loss to the Titans, dropping the Redskins to 7-8 on the season. While Johnson will get a shot at redemption in the regular-season finale, Gruden noted that the injured Colt McCoy (lower leg) could receive the nod if Washington should qualify for the postseason. That seems like a pipe dream, however, and the team could be eliminated before Week 17 even kicks off depending on how Sunday's slate of games plays out.

  • Redskins' Josh Johnson: Falters in defeat
    By RotoWire Staff

    Johnson completed 13 of 23 pass attempts for 153 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions in Saturday's 25-16 loss to the Titans. He added 22 rushing yards on four carries. Johnson struggled against the Titans' pass defense, posting his worst passing and rushing performance since taking over starting duties Week 14. The 32-year-old has never been known for his arm, so his value really bottoms out when he is unable to generate big numbers on the ground, as was the case Saturday. While the Redskins are all but mathematically eliminated from playoff contention, Johnson could still earn another start against the Eagles in Week 17 with the team having no younger prospects to trot out under center.
