The sixth round draft pick out of Fresno State was certainly turning heads before camp started. However I’m not sure anyone could have predicted him overtaking Andy Isabella on the depth chart.
Now, Isabella had injury issues which came into play, however Johnson had a nice preseason. Johnson has proven to be a valuable commodity.
He has already built a rapport with Kyler Murray. That is going to be huge going into the regular season.
Fantasy value: Not much yet. He’s still an unknown as is much of the Cardinals offense. He’s another guy you could draft for your bench in deeper leagues but don’t count on him for your starting lineup anytime soon. That could change late in the season or in 2020 however.
He could see the ball more however with Isabella still trying to play catchup from missing a couple of games in the preseason due to his injury. The first couple of regular season games could be very interesting.
