From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 17): Johnson just isn't going to hold value in a Tyrod Taylor offense. He's droppable, even in PPR, but we'll rush back to get him if Baker Mayfield becomes the starter.

Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 2 vs NO (3 / 3 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 7 / 0 rec)

Johnson went underused for the second consecutive game, as the Browns elected to give just five touches to their electric play-maker. That being said, Johnson got the 'start' as he was on the field for the first offensive play. He was involved early, lining up out wide before coming around for a sweep play. He wound up gaining just two yards on the play. Johnson did have a shot at a bigger game as he drew an end zone target from Tyrod Taylor in the third quarter. It was a good pass but Johnson had no chance at making the catch as a Saints defender pulled him down, drawing a defensive pass interference penalty which put the Browns as the Saints' one-yard line. Johnson was lined up in the slot on that play. The Browns have been moving him around when he's on the field but the ball just isn't coming his way often. He will be hard to trust in fantasy until he starts to see more usage.

2018 Week 1 vs PIT (5 / 17 / 0 rush, 6 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)

Johnson finished third on the team in targets, with six, but was only able to turn one of those looks into a reception. He was one of the biggest casualties of Tyrod Taylor's inaccuracy with the football. He had one target thrown too far outside to his right and another later which short-hopped him. Johnson remains entrenched as the team's passing-down back and should bounce back if more accurate throws start coming his way.
