Derrick Johnson is questionable. We break down the fantasy implications.
Derrick Johnson (ankle) was limited in practice all week and the Kansas City Cheifs have listed him as questionable for against the Falcons on Sunday.
Analysis: The good news is that the Chiefs fully expect their star middle linebacker to play. If you're one of those fantasy owners that worries all the time, Johnson and the Chiefs get an early game and it will give fantasy owners plenty of contingency plans in the event Johnson has a surprising inactive tag. Johnson is a very strong IDP start and his owners have absolutely no reason to bench him even though the Falcons will be airing it out.
