Johnson had just one tackle in Monday's win over the Saints. He played 45 of 62 snaps on defense.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson played more snaps then all but two games last year, which shows he's back to full strength after missing the last two games of last season due to a hamstring injury. His value is in stuffing the run, which doesn't translate to fantasy value in most leagues.
