Latest Update Chris Johnson hits ninth home run Mon Aug, 18, 02:48 AM
Possesses good power in his swing and will drive in his share of runs. Can also hit for a good batting average. Is a decent glove at the hot corner.
Flaws: : Can get fooled by off-speed stuff and doesn't walk nearly enough. Can be prone to making too many errors at the hot corner. Lacks speed on the basepaths.
Johnson is now riding a seven game hit streak while hitting .320 with two extra-base hits and three RBI over his last seven games. Although there is nothing flashy about his fantasy output, when in need of solid power source Johnson could be the right ticket as he is now sitting on a .276 average with nine home runs and 52 RBI on the year.

Johnson recorded his fourth multi-hit game over his past five. On top of that, he has eight multi-hit efforts over his last 17 games and his 36 multi-hit performances this season rank inside the top 10 among NL hitters.Analyst: Michael Pichan
Johnson is 1-for-12 in his career against Dodgers starter Clayton Kershaw. If you know he's not going to get a hit against him, you may as well try Phil Gosselin and see if the kid has any better luck.Analyst: Howard Bender
The home run was Johnson's eighth of the season and second over his last seven games with six RBI over that span. His 106 hits are second on the team behind only Freddie Freeman's 110 on the season.Analyst: Michael Pichan
