Jaguars RB Storm Johnson (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 2.

Jaguars RB Storm Johnson (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 1.

Sep 5 - 2:32 PM

Storm Johnson (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

Johnson hasn't practiced since going down in Jacksonville's preseason finale. He's unlikely to be active this week even if healthy. Johnson is behind Denard Robinson and Jordan Todman for backup duties to Toby Gerhart.
Sep 3 - 6:37 PM

Storm Johnson rushed five times for 11 yards in Friday night's preseason game against the Lions.

Johnson was the No. 3 running back through Jacksonville's rotation. He had more carries than Denard Robinson, but averaged 2.2 yards per attempt. Johnson has 25 carries for just 46 yards through three preseason games.
Aug 23 - 12:03 AM

Storm Johnson rushed five times for 14 yards in Thursday's preseason game against the Bears.

Johnson was a distant fourth on the depth chart, getting his first carry midway through the fourth quarter. Johnson got on the field in the first half as a kick returner, but muffed a kick before turning it into a nice return. With 14 preseason totes for just 35 yards (2.5 YPC), Johnson isn't putting himself in the Jags' COP back conversation.
Aug 14 - 11:12 PM

FOX Sports' Alex Marvez emerged from a recent visit to Jaguars camp thinking rookie Storm Johnson has a "legitimate chance" to unseat Jordan Todman as the No. 2 back behind Toby Gerhart.

Johnson was a seventh-round pick, but is much more of a volume ball carrier than Todman, whom the coaching staff has repeatedly called a "change of pace." It's entirely possible Johnson ends up as the better handcuff for Gerhart. He's worth rostering in all Dynasty leagues and some deep re-draft formats.
Aug 11 - 2:53 PM

Storm Johnson rushed for 21 yards on nine carries in Friday night's preseason opener against Tampa Bay.

Seventh-round rookie Johnson was the second back behind Jordan Todman with Toby Gerhart (hip) sitting out. Johnson is an aggressive runner, but has ball-security issues and not much experience in blitz pickup. He's not a candidate for much year-one impact. Johnson does need to be owned in Dynasty.
Aug 8 - 11:13 PM

Rookie Storm Johnson will open Jaguars camp as the No. 4 tailback behind Toby Gerhart, Jordan Todman, and Denard Robinson.

The Jags are high on Johnson's long-term outlook, but the 22-year-old isn't a threat for year-one carries barring several injuries ahead of him. He does know Jags OC Jedd Fisch from their days together at Miami (FL), where Johnson began his college career with Fisch as the Hurricanes' offensive coordinator. "Storm is going to run at the same speed as Toby and maybe a hair faster, but he’s strong and really compact," Fisch said. "He has incredible vision and lower body strength." Johnson is worth stashing in all Dynasty leagues.
Jul 20 - 2:47 PM

Jaguars seventh-round RB Storm Johnson expects to focus on special teams as a rookie.

Johnson is competing with Jordan Todman and Denard Robinson for reserve duties behind Toby Gerhart, but is aware special teams is where he's most likely to get on the field as a rookie. "I’m in there for every special teams meeting taking notes," he said. "That’s how I’m going to get my niche. I understand that fully." Johnson is a Dynasty-league prospect unlikely to make a 2014 re-draft impact.
Jun 3 - 4:53 PM

Jaguars signed seventh-round RB Storm Johnson to a four-year contract.

Johnson slipped to pick No. 222 overall after average workout numbers and ball security concerns. He fumbled eight times in two seasons at UCF and needs to work on his pass protection. The Jaguars' backfield isn't insanely talented, so Johnson could easily play an offensive role behind Toby Gerhart in year one.
May 20 - 3:58 PM

Jaguars OC Jedd Fisch referred to seventh-rounder Storm Johnson as "a great value pick for us."

Fisch said he "didn't know the explanation" for why Johnson slipped to round seven, but did acknowledge the UCF product "needs to work on his ball security" after fumbling eight times in two college seasons. Johnson also must get better in pass protection. When OTAs begin, Johnson will compete with Jordan Todman and Denard Robinson behind new Jaguars feature back Toby Gerhart.
May 19 - 3:24 PM

Jaguars selected UCF RB Storm Johnson with the No. 222 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

Johnson (6-foot, 209) signed with Miami as a four-star recruit but wound up at UCF, where he spent two seasons. He finished college with 1,765 yards and 19 touchdowns on 335 carries (5.27 YPC), adding 41 receptions. Johnson's Combine measurables were average (4.60 forty, 35 1/2" vertical, 9-foot-10 broad jump), but his vision, feet and aggressive running style stand out on tape. Johnson has tight hips, fumbled eight times in college and has a long way to go in pass protection, but it's not out of the question that he'll become a contributor.
