Johnson has long been one of fantasy's more heralded linebackers and top producers. However, he turns 35 this November and is coming off Achilles surgery. He was still producing at a LB2 level prior to his season-ending injury last year but it was evident that Johnson had lost a step or two against the run. The combination of age and injury mean that the former first rounder is set up for a a good amount of regression in 2017. This is year that he loses LB1 status and falls down into the LB2/LB2- tier.
