  • Saints' Austin Johnson: Signs with Saints
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Saints signed Johnson on Wednesday, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. Johnson has jumped between the Saints' 53-man roster and practice squad over the past three seasons, but in 17 appearances between 2014 and 2015, he totaled 12 carries for 31 yards and seven receptions (on 10 targets) for 45 yards. At the outset of the offseason, he'll be measuring himself against fellow fullback Toben Opurum.

  • Saints' Austin Johnson: Inactive Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Johnson is inactive for Sunday's game against the Colts, Evan Woodberry of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. The Saints will go without a fullback in Sunday's game, instead opting to keep Marcus Murphy active as a fourth tailback. Johnson has rarely handled the ball this season while serving primarily in a blocking capacity, as he's logged just four carries for nine yards and a touchdown over his five games.

  • Saints fullback Austin Johnson scored on a one-yard touchdown dive in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers. Johnson, the Saints' starting fullback, vultured a score early in the fourth quarter, after Mark Ingram was stopped just shy of the goal line. Though the Saints have shown that they are comfortable using Johnson in short-yardage situations, with on four total touches through two games (two carries for five yards and two receptions for five yards), Johnson will likely be more of a nuisance for owners of Saints' running backs than a worthwhile fantasy option in most leagues.

  • A knee injury has landed Saints fullback Austin Johnson on injured reserve. The team has activated tackle Nick Becton off the Giants practice squad to take his place on the roster. Johnson hasn't played since Oct. 26. He finishes the season with 22 yards on eight carries and two receptions.
