RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Johnson’s best statistical season came in 2011 with Pittsburgh when he caught 12 passes for 91 yards and one touchdown, but he only had one reception last season in San Diego as the Bolts used him more as a blocker than a receiver.

2014

Johnson figures to be used primarily as a blocking fullback in San Diego, though his role will likely be better defined in training camp.

2013

Johnson missed the entire 2012 season due to a knee injury, and must prove he is fully healed. He is an solid blocker, but has never shown much potential to be a threat in the passing game.

2012

This converted tight end was in line to be the lead blocker in Pittsburgh's offense until he suffered a torn ACL in the preseason opener.

2010

Johnson is down on the depth chart for the tight end position. He has good blocking skills but no value for fantasy purposes.

2009

Drafted in the seventh round by the Steelers in 2009, Johnson is of no fantasy relevance. His blocking skills may let the team consider using him as an H-back.
