Johnson was released by Sunderland on Thursday after pleading guilty to charges of grooming and sexual activity with a child.

Johnson was arrested last March due to the allegations, and while his legal issues are now behind him, he'll have to find another club to take a chance on him.

DraftKings Fantasy Soccer: Saturday EPL Targets

Kevin De Bruyne has been a fantasy star this season, but one of his midfield teammates could provide more bang for the buck this weekend against West Ham.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Johnson scored a goal on two shots (one on target) in 24 minutes off the bench in the 2-2 draw to Liverpool on Saturday.

A very well placed free kick by Johnson gave the Black Cats a ray of hope that they can come back in the game. Johnson had a nice run of games in January but that's his second consecutive game back to the bench. He's got a total of two goals and five assists but his playing time will be significantly reduced with the addition of Wahbi Khazri and Dame N'Doye.

Johnson grabbed an assist on two key passes and received a yellow card in the 4-1 drubbing from Tottenham on Saturday.

Beautiful through ball behind the Spurs' defense took van Aanholt on excellent scoring opportunity one-on-one with Hugo Lloris. The left back smothered the ball into the net to give Johnson his fourth assist in three games. Johnson has returned to form of late and will be hoping to continue his productive run in the relegation battle against Bournemouth at home next Saturday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Johnson grabbed a brace of assists on three key passes and added one shot off target and two crosses in the 4-2 win over Swansea on Wednesday.

It's the Johnson's second and third assists in the last two games. He's finally earned a regular playing time and is peaking at very important moment for the Black Cats. That's his fifth start in the Sunderland's last six games and with his nice form improvement of late he doesn't seem to be going anywhere but on the field with the Black Cats' starters. He's going to have a tough match up, though, on Saturday when Sunderland is visiting Tottenham and one of the best defenses in the league.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Johnson had an assist on Sunderland's second goal and created four chances in the Wearsiders' 3-1 home win against Aston Villa on Saturday.

When he is on top of his game, Johnson is an irresistible force, but injuries, inconsistency and scandals have tempered his progress. If manager Sam Allardyce can sprinkle some of his magic on this Sunderland side then Johnson could be a decent fantasy option.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Johnson tallied an assist and added two key passes and a shot off target in 27 minutes of play off the bench in the 2-0 win over Stoke on Saturday.

He didn't impress too much off the bench and his assist was merely a touch to the middle towards the scorer - Patrick van Aanholt. He's been struggling to find consist playing time this year due to various reasons. Nevertheless, when healthy and starting he's always worth taking a look at, especially with the rise of the Black Cats of late. He's managed to pick up a goal and two assists for the season in the limited time he's played.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Johnson converted a penalty kick during first-half stoppage time of Sunday's win over Newcastle.

Johnson used his preferred left foot to slot home from the penalty spot and give Sunderland a one-goal lead heading into half-time Sunday. That marked the Englishman's first goal of the campaign which could earn him another start this weekend when Sunderland visits Everton.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Johnson (shoulder) is available off the bench in Saturday's match against AFC Bournemouth.

Johnson is actually returning ahead of schedule since he was expected to stay off the pitch until mid-October with a shoulder injury. However, he is not ready to be immediately inserted back into the starting XI where he's already made one appearance earlier in the season for manager Dick Advocaat.
