Johnson is expected to be released by the Cowboys, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Johnson's prospects for sticking in Dallas for 2009 are low after finishing 2008 on the third string behind Brooks Bollinger. The Cowboys would save $2 million of cap space by releasing Johnson.
Johnson is Dallas' No. 2 quarterback for Sunday's game.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones indicated Tuesday the Cowboys will stick with Johnson for Sunday's game against the Giants, the San Antonio Express-News reports.

In Jones' eyes, Johnson's ability to protect the ball and manage the game give him the edge over Brooks Bollinger and the mobility he brings to the table. "My gut is our best way to win is to not turn the ball over, as opposed to go out there and try to create more offense," Jones said. "While Brooks has got some real skill mobility-wise and can throw the ball, you've got to look at his track record and look at the limited time he's been under center this year, and you've got a serious chance of turnovers."
When asked if Johnson, who is filling in for the injured Tony Romo, would start against the Giants Sunday, coach Wade Phillips said, "we'll see. I would expect that. I don't know why it would change," the Associated Press reports.

Tony Romo doesn't expect to play again until after the Cowboys' bye week, which puts Johnson in line for two more starts, the Associated Press reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Sunday's opponents, the Bucs, have had more luck stopping the run than the pass and WR Roy Williams will have another week in the system under his belt, so while we don't expect any miracles here, things could go a little smoother for Johnson than they did in Week 7.
While a late meaningless touchdown saved his fantasy numbers from being awful, Johnson did not look good in his start against St. Louis on Sunday, going just 17-for-34 for 234 yards and three interceptions.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013

There was no outlook written for Brad Johnson.

2008

Aging veteran will back up Tony Romo and won't likely see much action.

2007

Veteran QB will backup Tony Romo in 2007 after posting an ugly 9/15 TD/INT ratio in 15 games with Minnesota last season.

2006

Heís going to be worthy of starting in deeper leagues as long as he stays healthy because former Eagles offensive coordinator Brad Childress is his head coach. So, you need to assume that the Eagles play calling tendencies will carry over. And those tendencies are manna from heaven for fantasy QBs: at or near the top of the league every year in pass percentage overall, on first downs and in the red zone. Johnsonís not higher because heís old and creaky, and because you can never be sure how a QB will adapt to a new system. But thereís no competition in house for his job. Like the Eagles, the Vikings donít appear to have a running back capable of taking over a game on the ground. Johnson won't be pushed for playing time by second-round pick Tavaris Jackson or backup Mike McMahon, so job security is the greatest benefit in taking a chance on him.

2005

Johnson will serve as Daunte Culpepper's backup. While Johnson struggled last season and lost the starting job in Tampa Bay, he still has completed 60% of his passes or better the last ten years and is only two years removed from leading his team to the Super Bowl.

2004

Yeah, Johnson had a very productive fantasy season. But his 21 INTs did little to endear him to Jon Gruden, who spent the offseason looking for alternatives. First it was Jeff Garcia and then Brian Griese. Chris Simms still lurks in the background. Gruden says that Johnson's starting job is secure. But how could Gruden not sour on Johnson after seeing him toss 13 INTs the second half of Ď03, registering a pedestrian 72 passing rating? Still, Johnson has been very effective in the red zone the last two years, with 31 TD passes against just two interceptions. That's fantasy bread and butter. Of course, he hasn't done much damage from further out, but that's largely due to the lack of downfield weapons in the Bucs passing game. Joey Galloway isn't the answer to that problem. While Michael Clayton will likely develop into an able replacement for Keyshawn Johnson as a possession threat, you can't expect too much production during his rookie season. Charlie Garner is too old for anyone other than Jon Gruden to get excited about, but should at least provide a receiving threat on third downs.

2003

While Johnson was hot for one five-game stretch in the middle of last year (throwing for 15 scores in that span), he managed just seven touchdown passes in his other eight starts. He topped 300 yards passing only one time, and he gets almost nothing out of his legs Ė his 30 yards rushing was the least of any major QB last season. And it wasn't a surprise when injuries moved Johnson to the sideline, either. He's played a full season just twice in the last five years. He'll turn 35 in September, so durability figures to be a major concern for the rest of his career. However, he did lead the NFC in QB rating last year, he was the only QB to outrush Michael Vick head-to-head last year (two yards to one back in October; it helps to have a great defense on your side), and he got the ring, so Johnson won't mind if he's not among the top 15 QBs on your draft list for 2003.
