News: Johnson hit a two-run homer to back Alex Wood to help the Atlanta Braves beat the Philadelphia Phillies 8-2 Sunday. Impact: Johnson is 9 for 20 with four jacks and 10 RBIs in his last five games so ride him until he cools off.(STATS, 4:59pm)

July 13, 2014
News: Johnson went 3-for-4 a three-run homer in Sunday's 10-7 win over the Cubs. Impact: What a weekend in Chicago for Johnson. Heading into Saturday's game, the 29-year-old third baseman was mired in a week-long slump that saw him go just 3-for-28 at the dish. However, after going a combined 5-for-9 with three bombs over the past two days, it is apparent that he had no desire to carry the cold spell into the break. Fantasy owners in deeper leagues may want to take a look, as Johnson is hitting a very solid .313 with 22 RBI through his last 150 at-bats dating back to June 3.(RotoWire, )

News: Johnson homered twice to lead the Atlanta Braves over the Chicago Cubs 11-6 on Saturday. Impact: Johnson also drove in a season-high four runs after going 3 for 28 (.107) with one RBI in his previous seven games.(STATS, 3:18pm)
Sat. July 12, 2014
News: Johnson hit a pair of two-run homers off Edwin Jackson in Saturday's 11-6 win over the Cubs. Impact: Nearly a month removed from his last home run, Johnson surprisingly left the yard twice in the same game. He hit well in June but owns a disappointing .272/.294/.365 slash line with just one game left in the first half of the season. The counting stats have also been lacking, with Johnson on pace for just nine home runs, 57 RBI, 43 runs, and three steals.(RotoWire, )

News: Johnson is not in the lineup Thursday against the Mets. Impact: Failing to carry on the momentum from a strong month of June (.327/.345/.409), Johnson has gone just 6-for-31 (.194 average) in eight games to begin July. He'll get what looks like a mental break Thursday as Ramiro Pena mans third and bat eighth against right-hander Bartolo Colon.(RotoWire, )

News: Johnson was 2 for 4 with a season high-matching three RBIs in Wednesday's win over the Mets. Impact: Johnson is hitting .366 over his last 23 games.(STATS, 6:54pm)
