Johnson reeled in four catches and a touchdown on six targets Sunday against the Titans, finishing the season with 41 receptions for 503 yards and four touchdowns on 77 targets in 16 games played. In his first year with the Colts after 12 years in Houston, Johnson saw his targets nearly cut in half from the previous season with the Texans. It appears the 34-year-old veteran is beginning to slow down, while he has two years left on his current contract. Hopefully a healthy Andrew Luck in 2016 will boost Johnson's value, although he'll have to compete with young studs T.Y. Hilton, Donte Moncrief, and Phillip Dorsett for targets.
Johnson was targeted five times in Sunday's win over the Dolphins, recording three catches for 39 yards. Johnson has now caught three passes off of five targets in three consecutive games, a level of consistent mediocrity the former Pro-Bowl receiver is not accustomed to. It's been a season of few peaks and many valleys for Johnson, who is on pace to set career lows in catches and yards during a full season. Seeing as how the Colts will be scraping the botton of the quarterback barrel in Week 17, the season is unlikely to end on a hight note.
Johnson had three receptions for 32 yards and was targeted five times in Sunday's loss to Houston. He played just 22 of 54 snaps on offense. Johnson caught two touchdowns in the first meeting this season against his former team, but he waasn't a big factor Sunday. Johnson was tied for second on the team in targets, but played almost half as much as Donte Moncrief and T.Y. Hilton.
Johnson had three receptions for 19 yards and was targeted five times in Sunday's loss at Jacksonville. Johnson played more snaps than usual (41) with Indy falling behind early and needing to pass the ball. But even with Colts quarterbacks attempting 43 passes, Johnson remained a small part of the offense.
Johnson had two receptions for 44 yards and was targeted three times in Sunday's loss at Pittsburgh. Johnson had his most productive game in five games, which says more about how he's fallen to the third or fourth receiver in the passing game. He played just 32 snaps on offense compared to 50 for Donte Moncrief and 55 for T.Y. Hilton.
