28-Year-Old LinebackerLB
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Johnson didn't log a defensive snap in 2019 until Week 5 against the Chargers, a game in which he got the start and racked up eight tackles, two passes defensed and an interception. He was a fixture in the middle of the defense from there on out. Johnson provides a perfect complement to Todd Davis' downhill play at middle linebacker and has the skill set to fill up the stat sheet. He should improve in Year 2 of coach Vic Fangio's system.

Emerges as Denver's find of 2019

January 26, 2020
Johnson tallied 93 total tackles, 1.5 sacks, two forced fumbles, an interception and three passes defensed in 2019.
ANALYSIS
Believing Johnson to be too raw, head coach Vic Fangio did not have Johnson suit up for a game until Week 5 against the Chargers. He quickly responded with a clutch interception in the end zone against Los Angeles and 1.5 sacks against Tennessee the following week. The Broncos caught a lot of flack for not drafting an inside linebacker in the 2019 draft, but Johnson seems to be the kind of stat-sheet filling weapon that the Broncos needed to complement Todd Davis, who is at his best playing downhill. The Broncos might add some depth to the linebacking corps in the offseason, but Johnson -- who is under contract for another season before hitting restricted free agency -- seems to be the future at the position in Denver.
