2021 Fantasy Outlook
With top cornerback Kyle Fuller no longer on the Bears, Johnson becomes the team's top option at the position. Otherwise, question marks abound in this group. Consequently, opposing quarterbacks may choose to attack other corners, which could lead to a downturn in Johnson's stats. As a rookie last year, the second-round pick accounted for 15 passes defended in 13 games while allowing a QB rating of 96.9 on passes thrown his way. In terms of Johnson's potential production, it's difficult to predict, based on whether offenses choose to attack him, making him a risky investment as an IDP. Read Past Outlooks

Intercepts pass
CBChicago Bears
September 19, 2021
Johnson intercepted a pass while adding two tackles in the Bears' 20-17 win over the Bengals on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
After failing to intercept a pass in his rookie season, it only took Johnson two games to get his first pick of 2021. As the Bears' top cornerback, he has a great chance to increase his tackle total from the 44 he recorded last year, and he could be a solid fantasy option in leagues that require cornerbacks to be rostered.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
After letting Prince Amukamara walk in free agency, the Bears spent a second-round pick on Johnson, who has an excellent chance to start at cornerback Week 1. Assuming he seizes that role, he'll immediately have IDP value, as he should have a floor of a few tackles per game. However, because Chicago doesn't possess an elite offense, the team may not be in many shootouts, which could limit the number of passes opposing offenses have to throw and thus hurt Johnson's fantasy upside.
