Fantasy Impact:

Johnson was placed on IR during the last month of the 2020 season to undergo surgery repairing an ongoing ankle injury, limiting him to just nine games. He also stated that his relationship with Eagles general manager Howie Roseman is "fine" and that he should be cleared by the team's medical staff in a month. Continuity along the offensive line will be crucial for the Eagles to avoid another disappointing season in 2021, as they return C Jason Kelce and RG Brandon Brooks. Johnson should be healthier than he has been across the last couple of seasons, helping solidify an offensive line to protect QB Jalen Hurts.
