Johnson (knock) is starting Tuesday against Manchester United.

The Red Devils haven't been putting up a large number of goals this season, though they still have very capable attackers, making Johnson a bit of a risky play in fantasy formats that rely on clean sheets for defender value.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Johnson did not play in Saturday's FA Cup match against Crystal Palace due to a knock, but he returned to light training Monday and could play in Tuesday's Premier League match against Manchester United, manager Mark Hughes said.

Johnson has been a steady force along the Potters' defensive line, and while he is able to move up in the attack, he may not be given such freedom against United, with Ryan Shawcross still out with a back injury.

Johnson provided one cross, won a pair of tackles and made four interceptions in a clean-sheet effort versus Arsenal on Sunday.

The fullback wasn't quite as involved on the offensive end as he typically is, but he put in a sound defensive effort to help stifle the first-place Gunners. Johnson continues to serve as one of the better fantasy defenders out there due to his typical inclusion in the attack paired with Stoke's sound defensive record, although he could be forced to sit back again next week versus Leicester.

Johnson tallied an assist, one key pass, one dribble and three interceptions along with a clean sheet in the stunning 2-0 home win over Manchester United on Boxing Day.

Memphis Depay gifted the ball to Johnson in the Red Devils’ penalty area with all the space and time in the world. The right back took a few steps towards the goal and made a perfect cut-back pass to Bojan Krkic who made no mistake and opened the Potters’ tally for the day. With Stoke possessing one of the best defenses and goalkeepers in the league (only three defeats and eight clean sheets in the last 11 Premier League games) along with three assists for the season, the veteran could be a very safe fantasy option regardless of match up.

Johnson (knock) is starting Saturday against Manchester City.

Johnson left the midweek Capital One Cup match with the ailment, but it was never considered serious, and he'll slot right back into the starting XI against a very strong Man City attack.

Johnson (knock) should be available against Manchester City on Saturday.

Johnson was removed at halftime from the Potters' mid-week Capital One Cup tie, but the injury was not serious and he should be ready to go Saturday, barring any setbacks. Johnson has played the full 90 in each of the past nine Premier League matches as the team's right back and has two assists in that span.

Johnson (knock) is facing a late fitness test ahead of Saturday's fixture with Newcastle. "Glen Johnson has trained today [Thursday] and hopefully, as long as he suffers no affects from that, he will be available on Saturday," manager Mark Hughes said.

Johnson picked up a knock on Tuesday against Chelsea in the Capital One Cup, but the 31-year-old should play Saturday. He has two assists in nine matches this season at right back in the Premier League play.
