Sometimes tries to do too much in a one-and-one match-up off the dribble
Shot selection is questionable at times
Still a bit wirey and needs to add some strength
Summary: Johnson has been as good as advertised after transferring to Syracuse. If his season finishes as well as it has started, the lottery is in his very near future. He is already 22 years old due to transferring and spending a year at prep school, so it is very possible he will bolt for the NBA after this season.
Player Comparison: Shawn Marion. Johnson uses his length and athleticism to be a factor in every aspect of the game just like Marion did when he broke onto the scene in Phoenix. Johnson can score in numerous ways and also is a factor racking up steals and blocks on the defensive end. Johnson is a slightly better shooter than Marion and has a much prettier stroke.
A little late on this par but here goes: Houston -134 and if time available going in the second tier spot the Dodgers either with the high ML or I may go the way of the RL. Another: Colorado -134, two open. Another: Nats -149, two open. Another: Boston -200 (Sale), two open. GL tonight folks.
With every sports outlet picking the Titans, I feel they are overrated. I had them underrated last year but loved their o-line. They keep referencing before Mariota got injured. The thing is they were getting killed by the Jaguars before that injury. They pulled out some huge wins vs KC and GB but also struggled in their own division. I also wonder how Mariota's injury heals for this season as it was late in the season. I think they will be more of a .500 team that keeps games close. Hopefully, that means they cover the spread as underdogs.
