    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.

  • Posted: 12/27/2018 3:35pm ET

    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.

  • Posted: 12/22/2018 11:04pm ET

    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.

  • Posted: 12/9/2018 11:35pm ET

    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.
