Trumaine Johnson: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
After an injury took him out of the first half of the season, Johnson was relegated to nickel duty with the emergence of E.J. Gaines. With Gaines out for the season, Johnson will re-assume starting duties after tallying three interceptions in 2014 to go with 36 tackles.
Johnson had a decent fantasy year with the Rams in 2013, intercepting three passes and picking up 68 tackles. However, the Rams' back four struggled overall with both the run and the pass, and St. Louis is hoping Johnson continues to improve in his third season.
Johnson picked up 31 tackles and a pair of interceptions as a nickel back in 2012. He will assume the same role in 2013, and should put up similar numbers.
Johnson will compete with fellow rookie Janoris Jenkins and veteran Bradley Fletcher for the No. 2 cornerback job. It's likely Johnson will end up as the club's nickelback, especially if the club converts Fletcher to a safety.
