DE Michael Johnson – The team’s franchise player is getting paid as a pass rusher but at the half way point in the season he has only gotten to the quarterback 1.5 times after doing it 11.5 last year. Johnson will have an opportunity this week to pad some sack stats as the Dolphins have a real problem protecting Ryan Tannehill.

He absorbed another 6 sacks last week versus New England.  Johnson has been solid in the run game and pressures but if he wants to cash in this offseason he will need to step up in the sack department.
