Johnson had four shots, including a penalty that was saved, adding three tackles and four interceptions as Toronto FC lost 3-0 to New York Red Bulls.

Converting the penalty would have given his side a glimmer of hope while playing with a man advantage but the acting captain was not able to get his side back into the match. The Canadian struggled to fill Michael Bradley's shoes in the heart of the midfield but the 29-year-old has been a solid contributor on the whole.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Johnson saved a point for Toronto after scoring in the 42nd minute of their 1-1 draw with New York City FC on Wednesday.

Johnson still only has two goals on the season to go with two assists, so he isn't lighting up the scoreboard by any means. However, he has been of more use than teammate Michael Bradley, who has yet to score this year.

Johnson had one goal on three shots and added two tackles on his return to Portland but the reunion ended bitterly as his Toronto were defeated 2-1 at the hands of the Timbers.

This was Johnson's first goal for Toronto. His ability to play on both sides of the ball makes him a valuable asset on fantasy teams.

Johnson had an assist to go along with five tackles and four interceptions in Toronto FC's 2-0 triumph over the Montreal Impact.

The Toronto-born midfielder was undoubtedly fired up for his first 401 derby and showcased his range of talents.

Johnson had seven tackles in TFC's 1-0 victory over DC.

The Canadian international was a force in the middle of the park and is developing a formidable partnership with long-time friend Michael Bradley.

Johnson assisted on the equalizing goal in the 2-2 draw against New York City on Sunday.

After struggling in 2015 with Portland, scoring no goals and having no assists, Johnson is looking to bounce back this season with Toronto. While he plays more of a holding midfield role, he still has plenty of weapons around him like Sebastian Giovinco, Michael Bradley and Jozy Altidore.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Johnson was traded to Toronto FC on Friday.

Johnson has been a perennial starter for both the Timbers and Real Salt Lake over the past seven seasons, and that should continue in Toronto. Although, he may take a backseat to Michael Bradley which doesn't project well for production in 2016, but there are certainly many assist opportunities to go around on a team which possesses Sebastian Giovinco.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Johnson (leg) hopes to rejoin training in the near future, but he's currently without a firm timetable for a return to match-play, The Oregonian reports.

Johnson hasn't played since Sept. 20 as he's currently battling a leg injury. He tends to start when healthy, so Jack Jewsbury is a viable candidate for unexpected minutes while Johnson continues to recover.
