Johnson recorded 11 tackles (six solo) and two pass defensed during Thursday's 38-31 win over Minnesota.
Now up to 31 tackles (20 solo), an interception and five pass defensed through four games, Johnson is proving to be a reliable asset in IDP settings. He finished last season strong, and the 2017 third-round selection has clearly cemented his role as the starting strong safety.
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 behind defensive coordinator Wade Phillips' 3-4 scheme. Looking ahead to his sophomore campaign, Johnson is in place to take a step forward and potentially become a weekly fantasy option in IDP settings. He recorded a respectable 63 tackles (46 solo) through the final 10 games of the 2017 season, after all.
