Washington Redskins QB Josh Johnson completed just 12-of-27 passes for 91 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in the Week 17 shutout loss against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Johnson was pressed into duty after a slew of injuries in D.C., but he's unlikely to start a game in 2019 unless disaster strikes whatever organization he is playing for then. No fantasy value.

Washington Redskins QB Josh Johnson (ankle) practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 27.
Huddle Up: It's the second straight day in which Johnson has fully practiced, so he's perfectly fine for Week 17. However, he'll have a tough matchup on tap and should be viewed as nothing more than a QB2 on the final Sunday of the season.

Washington Redskins QB Josh Johnson (ankle) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 26.
Huddle Up: Although he has surprised with fairly competent play since taking over the reins at quarterback, Johnson isn't an ideal option to deploy as your starting signal-caller in the fantasy finals. For owners in two-quarterback formats, though, Johnson does merit consideration as a QB2.

Washington Redskins QB Josh Johnson will be the starting quarterback against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 17.
Huddle Up: Johnson has posted decent numbers since taking over the starting job but should only be a starting option in two-quarterback leagues.

Washington Redskins QB Josh Johnson finished 13-of-23 for 153 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions in Week 16 against the Tennessee Titans. He added four carries for 22 additional yards.
Huddle Up: The final line doesn't look great, but Johnson repeatedly displayed poise in situations that typically unnerve journeyman quarterbacks, especially those who haven't started a game in seven years and are relatively new to the offense. Neither interception was his fault either, as Josh Doctson stopped on his route on the first one and the second was a ridiculous play - a Hail Mary heave from the Washington 15 - on the final play of the game. Johnson has shown enough to warrant a backup job somewhere in 2019.

Washington Redskins QB Josh Johnson went 16-for-25 for 151 yards and one touchdown against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 15. He also rushed for 49 yards on nine carries during the game.
Huddle Up: Johnson has posted decent numbers since taking over as the starting quarterback but should not be considered a starting option in fantasy leagues. He could be on rosters in two-quarterback leagues but is not a strong starting option.

Washington Redskins QB Josh Johnson will start in Week 15 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Johnson passed for 195 yards in relief of QB Mark Sanchez on Sunday, Dec. 9.
Huddle Up: Don't get fooled by Johnson's solid numbers. The Giants built a 40-point lead before taking their foot off the gas, enabling the journeyman to face soft coverage and disinterested fronts. Keep far away.

After another poor outing by San Francisco 49ers QB Blaine Gabbert, sources indicate there has been some talk about QB Josh X. Johnson being moved to the No. 2 slot behind QB Colin Kaepernick.
Huddle Up: Obviously no Niners' QB has been overly impressive this preseason with the team totaling all of 3 points in 2 outings, but Gabbert, the former 10th overall pick, has been particularly odious with 11 completions in 25 attempts for 60 yards and 2 picks. Johnson, meanwhile, is 8-of-11 for 72 yards and no picks and is trying to make his mark with his fourth team in as many seasons.

The San Francisco 49ers have signed free-agent QB Josh X. Johnson (Bengals) to an undisclosed one-year deal.
Huddle Up: Johnson, who's made 5 starts in 5 NFL seasons, will compete with Blaine Gabbert for the right to back up Colin Kaepernick.
Posted: 7/11/2013 5:07 am UTC
Cincinnati Bengals QB Josh X. Johnson appears to have an edge over QBs John Skelton and Zac Robinson for the No. 2 quarterback job entering training camp because he is the best runner among the quarterbacks, can throw the ball deep and knows the offensive system.
Huddle Up: Johnson has kicked around the NFL a bit, teasing with athleticism and potential, but he has yet to land in a spot where he's been given the opportunity to showcase himself. Ideally, as Cincy's QB2 he'll spend the season holding a clipboard, but if Andy Dalton goes down he brings at least a little something to the fantasy table.
