  • Juwan Johnson Grabs One Catch In Loss

    New Orleans Saints tight end Juwan Johnson was only targeted once in the 10-7 Week 18 loss to the Carolina Panthers. Johnson caught his lone target for a 21-yard gain. The third-year converted wide receiver had a breakout 2022 campaign, catching a team-high seven touchdowns. Johnson ended the season scoring as a borderline TE1 option and should enter 2023 as a potential late-round steal at the position. He offered boom-bust potential this season and is a candidate for a similar role in 2023.

  • Juwan Johnson Active For Week 18

    New Orleans Saints tight end Juwan Johnson (quad) is active for the Week 18 matchup against the Carolina Panthers. He was limited in practice towards the end of the week, but appears good to go on Sunday. He'll look to close out his breakout season on a good note in this favorable matchup. Johnson has finished with at least 40 receiving yards in eight games this season. He should be considered a borderline TE1 for this Week 18 matchup.

  • Taysom Hill, Juwan Johnson Questionable For Week 18

    New Orleans Saints tight ends Taysom Hill (back) and Juwan Johnson (quadriceps) are both listed as questionable for the Week 18 regular season finale on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers. Hill was limited in practice all week, while Johnson was limited the last two days, so there's a good chance both will be able to play in a meaningless game this weekend. Hill hasn't attempted more than four passes in a single game for the Saints this year, but he's been used more as a rusher in the last two games, carrying 23 times for 102 yards and two touchdowns. For his rushing prowess along, Hill carries some low-end TE1 appeal to close out the year. Johnson will be looking to finish out a career year on a high note after posting career-highs in catches (41), targets (64), yards (487) and touchdowns (seven) through 17 weeks. He's on the radar as a touchdown-dependent TE2 streamer.

  • Juwan Johnson Absent On Wednesday

    New Orleans Saints tight end Juwan Johnson (quadriceps) was absent from the team's practice on Wednesday. The 26-year-old is starting off the week with an injury after tying his season-high in targets and receptions against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 17. It is still early, but if Johnson was to miss their Week 18 game against the Carolina Panthers, it would be a big blow to the passing offense as he's played a larger role as of late. For fantasy managers that are relying on the third-year pro in fantasy championships, it'd be best to monitor his availability throughout the week.

  • Juwan Johnson Paces Team In Targets In Win

    New Orleans Saints tight end Juwan Johnson paced the team in targets in the 20-10 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. Johnson hauled in five of the seven targets for 62 yards through the air, putting together a serviceable day fantasy-wise from the tight end position. Johnson continued to show a connection with quarterback Andy Dalton, who has looked his way often in his breakout season. Johnson and the Saints will take on the Carolina Panthers in Week 18 in a divisional matchup between two teams who are fresh off of losing their playoff hopes.

  • Juwan Johnson Remains Touchdown-Dependent

    New Orleans Saints tight end Juwan Johnson disappointed fantasy managers in last week's win over Cleveland, hauling in just one reception for nine yards. Johnson can be thrust into lineups this week as a touchdown-dependent play given that he has seven scores since Week 7. The matchup this week is not intriguing, as Philadelphia has surrendered the seventh least amount of points to the tight end position on the season. Try looking for other options in the fantasy championship round, but throw Johnson in the lineup with hopes of him finding the end zone if no better options are available.

  • Juwan Johnson Records One Catch In Week 16

    New Orleans Saints tight end Juwan Johnson had a disappointing fantasy day in the 17-10 win over Cleveland. Johnson was targeted twice, grabbing one reception for nine yards in the victory. The performance can be chalked up to the gruesome weather in which both teams were committed to the run game. Quarterback Andy Dalton only attempted 15 passes, completing eight of them. Johnson will be back in starting consideration for the fantasy championship in Week 17 but faces a strong Philadelphia defense. His status as a fantasy starter will likely depend on the availability of receiver Chris Olave (hamstring).

  • Monitor Weather Before Starting Juwan Johnson In Week 16

    New Orleans Saints tight end Juwan Johnson picked up where he left off in his return to action in Week 15, grabbing two scores on four receptions for 67 yards. Johnson has developed chemistry with quarterback Andy Dalton, especially near the red zone, and has scored seven touchdowns since Week 7. The Saints could be without leading receiver Chris Olave (hamstring) this week, which would thrust Johnson into an even more prominent role. Saturday's game against the Cleveland Browns is projected to be played in heavy snow at cold temperatures, so monitor the weather situation before inserting him at tight end this week.

  • Juwan Johnson Continues Breakout Season

    New Orleans Saints tight end Juwan Johnson continued his breakout season on Sunday, grabbing two touchdowns in the New Orleans victory over Atlanta. Johnson paced the team in receptions and targets, grabbing four catches on six targets for 67 yards and two touchdowns. Quarterback Andy Dalton has looked Johnson's way frequently in the red zone, as he has grabbed seven touchdowns on the year. Johnson returned to action for the first time since Week 12, when he was blanketed in the stat sheet and suffered an ankle injury that caused him to sit out Week 13. He can be inserted into the lineup in Week 16 when New Orleans heads up to Cleveland in a battle of two teams hanging onto playoff hopes.

  • Juwan Johnson, Adam Trautman Active Sunday

    New Orleans Saints tight ends Juwan Johnson (ankle) and Adam Trautman (ankle) are both active on Sunday to face the Atlanta Falcons in Week 15. Johnson and Trautman both came into this game listed as questionable. Johnson was inactive in Week 13 but was able to get healthy during last week's bye. He's been the team's clear No. 1 pass-catching tight end and already has career-highs across the board with 31 catches on 49 targets for 349 yards and five touchdowns in 12 games. Johnson had a stretch of scoring a touchdown in three straight games before injuring his ankle in the Week 12 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Now that he's back in action against a soft Falcons defense, he'll be back in play as a TE2 streamer for fantasy managers.

  • Juwan Johnson, Adam Trautman Questionable In Week 15

    New Orleans Saints tight ends Juwan Johnson (ankle) and Adam Trautman (ankle) are both listed as questionable to play in Week 15 against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. Both tight ends were limited in practice all week, so they have a pretty good shot of being active this weekend. If both players are active against Atlanta, Johnson is the one to target as a tight end streamer in fantasy. The 26-year-old has seen most of the tight end targets in New Orleans this year and has caught 31 of his 49 targets for a career-high 349 yards and five touchdowns in 12 games. He's the TE15 in half-point PPR scoring heading into Week 15 action, so he's more of a touchdown-dependent TE2 in the Saints' low-scoring offense.

  • Juwan Johnson, Adam Trautman Remain Limited Thursday

    New Orleans Saints tight ends Juwan Johnson (ankle), and Adam Trautman (ankle) were both limited participants in Thursday's practices. Johnson returned to practice Wednesday after missing Monday's game against the Buccaneers in Week 13. The 26-year-old is trending in the right direction and will look to log a full session on Friday. Trautman picked up the ankle injury during Monday's loss to the Buccaneers in Week 13. He will have one more chance to log a full practice ahead of Sunday's game against Atlanta. If active, Johnson is a mid-range TE2, while Trautman is a dart throw at best against the Falcons in Week 15.

  • Juwan Johnson Returns To Practice Wednesday

    New Orleans Saints tight end Juwan Johnson (ankle) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice. With an ankle injury, he was ruled out ahead of Monday's game against the Buccaneers in Week 13. The 26-year-old returned to practice Wednesday and will have two more chances to log an entire session ahead of Sunday's game against the Falcons. Johnson has caught 31 passes for 349 yards and five touchdowns over 12 games in 2022. If active, Johnson is a borderline TE2 in a plus matchup against a Falcons defense that ranks 19th in DVOA versus opposing tight ends.

  • Juwan Johnson Won't Play In Week 13

    New Orleans Saints tight end Juwan Johnson (ankle) has been ruled out for the Week 13 matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The 26-year-old was unable to practice as he continues to deal with a lingering ankle issue. The Saints have decided to sit Johnson, which leaves them extremely thin at tight end heading into this game. Adam Trautman and Taysom Hill are basically the only two tight ends available on this roster. Both should be viewed as low-end TE2 options for this upcoming Monday night matchup.

  • Juwan Johnson Misses Practice Thursday

    New Orleans Saints tight end Juwan Johnson (ankle) was unable to get on the practice field on Thursday. Johnson played a season-low 47 percent of the offensive snaps in the Week 12 loss to the San Francisco 49ers and he failed to catch either of his two targets after a stretch of three straight games with a touchdown. His ankle was likely bothering him last weekend, but he still has two more days to get back on the practice field. If Johnson is questionable for Week 13, he'll be an easy fade with the game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers coming on Monday night. If Johnson is unable to play this week, Adam Trautman would step in as the team's starting tight end against the Bucs. If active, Johnson will be a volatile touchdown-dependent TE2.

  • Juwan Johnson A Boom-Bust Tight End In Week 13

    New Orleans Saints tight end Juwan Johnson failed to record any stats last week after recording a touchdown in four-of-five games prior. Johnson's usage has remained inconsistent throughout the season and merits consideration as a boom-bust desperation play this week. His floor is as low as zero as seen last week, but his ceiling is higher than many other options at the tight end position due to his red zone usage. He is a high-end TE2 this week.

  • Juwan Johnson A Low-End TE1 In Week 11

    New Orleans Saints tight end Juwan Johnson has found the end zone four times in the last four games. With the tight end position being the thinnest in fantasy, he is a low-end TE1 in Week 11 against the Los Angeles Rams. Johnson paced the team in targets a week ago with seven and appears to be developing some chemistry with quarterback Andy Dalton, who will be under center again this week.

  • Juwan Johnson Scores In Second Straight Game

    New Orleans Saints tight end Juwan Johnson not only led the team in receiving in the 20-10 Week 10 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, but he found the end zone for the second straight game. Johnson finished with five catches on a team-high seven targets for 44 yards and the touchdown, his fourth of the season. The 26-year-old has now scored all four of his TDs in the last four games, going for two scores in Week 7. He's become a favorite of quarterback Andy Dalton and has taken advantage of receiver Michael Thomas' (toe) absence in the offense. New Orleans' offense isn't a juggernaut by any means, but Johnson has gone over 40 receiving yards in three of his last five games and has put himself on the low-end TE1/high-end TE2 borderline on a weekly basis.

  • Juwan Johnson A Streaming Option For Week 10

    New Orleans Saints tight end Juwan Johnson has been a pleasant surprise in fantasy this year, having caught 23 passes for 258 yards and three touchdowns in nine games. Johnson will look to stay productive against the Pittsburgh Steelers on the road in Week 10. The Steelers have been a tough matchup for tight ends in 2022 as they are allowing the 26th-fewest fantasy points per game to the position thus far. Johnson has carved out a role in the New Orleans passing attack and checks in as a mid-range TE2 in fantasy for Week 10 despite the challenging matchup.
