Johnson recorded seven tackles (six solo) and a pass defensed during Sunday's 34-0 win over Arizona. The sophomore finished the 2017 season strong with 63 tackles (46 solo) over the final 10 games, and he's picked up right where he left off this year. Johnson is now up to 16 tackles (12 solo), three defensed passes and an interception through two games, and he's also played as many snaps as any Los Angeles defender. It helps that he's lining up in a loaded Rams secondary, which only strengthens his fantasy floor. Johnson profiles as a serviceable weekly option in IDP settings moving forward.
Johnson started 11 of 16 games and recorded 75 tackles (56 solo) this season. The third-round selection out of Boston College had a respectable first tour through the NFL. He quickly climbed into a starting role at strong safety and was a strong fit in defensive coordinator Wade Phillips' 3-4 scheme. Considering his respectable 63 tackles (46 solo) through the final 10 games of the 2017 season, Johnson appears poised to take a step forward and potentially become a weekly fantasy option in IDP settings during his sophomore campaign.
