Josh Johnson gets shut down in season finale

Washington quarterback Josh Johnson completed 12 of his 27 passes for 91 yards and an interception in the team's Week 17 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson and the Redskins were completely shut down by the Philadelphia offense on Sunday, as they were held to just 89 total yards. Johnson finishes the season with 590 yards passing, three passing touchdowns, and four interceptions to go with 120 rushing yards and one rushing touchdown while playing in four games.

Josh Johnson throws two interceptions in loss

Washington quarterback Josh Johnson completed 13 of 23 pass attempts for 153 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions in Saturday's loss to the Tennessee Titans. He also added 22 yards on four rushes.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson was up-and-down in this one and actually had the Redskins leading 10-9 at halftime, but he ultimately struggled against a tough Titans pass defense that limited his ability to hurt them with his legs. In parts of three games this season, Johnson has completed 40 of 64 pass attempts for 499 yards, three touchdowns, and three interceptions to go with 116 yards rushing. He is expected to start against the Eagles in Week 17.

Josh Johnson produces 200 total yards in win over Jaguars

Washington quarterback Josh Johnson completed 16 of 25 passes for 151 yards and a touchdown and rushed nine times for 49 yards in Sunday's 16-13 win over the Jaguars.

Fantasy Impact

While it wasn't necessarily pretty, Johnson did enough to win a close game against the Jaguars. He is a mobile quarterback who makes the most of his running ability, as he has now rushed for more than 40 yards in back-to-back games.

Josh Johnson scores two touchdowns in relief of Mark Sanchez

Newly-signed Washington quarterback Josh Johnson completed 11 of 16 passes for one touchdown and one interception after entering the game for Mark Sanchez in the second half. He also rushed seven times for 45 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Impact

Despite only being signed by Washington a week ago, Johnson entered the game and immediately had more success than Mark Sanchez. Despite the success that he had in the second half of the game, it is worth noting that the Redskins were already down by more than 30 points. Johnson and the Redskins take on the Jaguars in Jacksonville next week.

Josh Johnson signed by Redskins

The Redskins have signed quarterback Josh Johnson.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson hasn't appeared in an NFL game since 2013 and hasn't completed a pass since 2011. With both Alex Smith and Colt McCoy done for the season, however, the Redskins needed depth behind Mark Sanchez. Johnson isn't someone to add in fantasy circles unless you play in the deepest of two-quarterback leagues.
