Northwestern Wildcats
2019 Fantasy Outlook
The former Clemson Tiger left the program after it became clear that his path to playing time was blocked by Trevor Lawrence. Johnson is a former blue-chip recruit that impressed in limited action during his freshman year at Clemson, completing 21 of 27 passes for 234 yards and two touchdowns. After sitting out a year, he's primed to be Northwestern's starter this season. Read Past Outlooks
Last-second decision on starting QB

August 22, 2019
Northwestern is not ready to name a starting quarterback in the competition between Johnson and T.J. Green and head coach Pat Fitzgerald says he will not announce a decision until shortly before the season-opening game against Stanford, according to Dave Eanet of WGN-TV Sports.
ANALYSIS
It would be a major surprise if Johnson, perhaps the most high-profile transfer in school history, doesn't win the job. However, it's also possible the Wildcats could split playing time early in the season as they did last year when Clayton Thorson returned from a knee injury. Given the uncertaintity and a tough opening game against Stanford, it's best to take a wait-and-see approach with Johnson for fantasy purposes.
