RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

The Saints' starting fullback the majority of the last two seasons, Johnson totaled 12 carries for 31 yards and seven receptions (on 10 targets) for 45 yards. With the Saints signing veteran John Kuhn at the start of training camp, Johnson will have stiff competition if he hopes to secure a roster spot. Even if he is named the starter again, with only one touchdown in the last two years, Johnson is merely an afterthought in most fantasy leagues.

2015

Johnson will compete to be the starting fullback for the Saints. He started the first eight games of the 2014 season, managing 22 yards on eight carries and catching two passes for 15 yards and a touchdown, before succumbing to a season-ending knee injury. While most fullbacks in the league have little fantasy value, the Saints have not shied from featuring their fullback around the goal line, both on the ground and through the air. If Johnson can win the starting gig, he could potentially be used as a tight end/fullback hybrid in the passing game, since the Saints are now thin at tight end.

2014

Johnson will compete for the starting fullback position with the Saints. Fullbacks have typically vultured a few touchdowns in the Saints offense, so Johnson could have some value in extremely touchdown-heavy leagues.
