    Vikings' Charles Johnson: Inactive Sunday

    Johnson (ankle) is listed as inactive Sunday against the Giants. Johnson turned in full practices all week, but his status on the fringe of the Vikings' receiving corps will keep him in street clothes in Week 16. Instead, Teddy Bridgewater will rely upon Mike Wallace, Stefon Diggs, and Jarius Wright to support the passing attack.

    Vikings' Charles Johnson: Ruled out to face Chicago

    Johnson (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bears. A mid-week addition to the injury report, Johnson wouldn't necessarily have a role even if he were healthy. He didn't play any offensive snaps in a Week 14 loss to the Cardinals, marking the fifth straight game in which he logged fewer than 20 snaps.

    Vikings' Charles Johnson: Season-low seven snaps

    Johnson played a season-low seven snaps on offense in Sunday's loss to Seattle, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Johnson hasn't had a pass thrown his way the last four games as he's become only a reserve on the bench at this point.

    Vikings' Charles Johnson: Plays just nine snaps

    Johnson was not targeted in the passing game and played just nine snaps on offense in Sunday's loss to Green Bay. It's not a good sign for Johnson's fantasy value that he was a non-factor in a game where Minnesota fell behind early and to throw the ball. It looks like Johnson won't have a significant role in the offense the rest of the season unless a few injuries strike the receiving corps.

    Vikings' Charles Johnson: Just one reception

    Johnson had one reception for 25 yards and was targeted just twice in Sunday's win over St. Louis. After missing two games due to a rib injury, Johnson has become a secondary option in the Minnesota passing game with the emergence of Stefon Diggs as the team's primary receiver. Johnson has just three receptions and five targets in the last three games.

    Vikings' Charles Johnson: Quiet performance versus Chicago

    Johnson turned his only target into a 35-yard gain in Sunday's win over the Bears. Another very quiet showing from the third-year wideout, who has caught just two passes in two games since a return from injury. Johnson is nothing more than an afterthought in the Minnesota offense at the moment, as Adrian Peterson and Stefon Diggs dominate the rushing and receiving looks, respectively. Johnson will look to break through in Week 9 against the Rams, but expectations should be quite low at this point.

    Vikings' Charles Johnson: Held to one catch against Detroit

    Johnson caught one pass for 21 yards on two targets in Sunday's win over Detroit. Offensive coordinator talked Johnson up during the offseason, but that hasn't translated to the field. Johnson hasn't been targeted more than three times in any game this season, after just four such outings in 12 games last season. Johnson now ranks seventh on the team in both targets and receptions and should not be considered a fantasy factor.

    Vikings WR Charles Johnson active, but not starting

    Vikings disappointing wide receiver Charles Johnson (ribs) is active for Sunday game against Detroit, but Stefon Diggs will start at wide receiver. The Vikings have six wide receivers active for the game, so it's not exactly clear how the playing time and targets will be divided. However, Johnson looks risky for Fantasy purposes with Diggs starting and performing well the past two games.

    Vikings' Charles Johnson: Probable to face Lions

    Johnson (ribs) is listed as probable for Sunday's game in Detroit. Johnson may return from his two-game absence as the No. 4 wide receiver, after rookie Stefon Diggs caught 13 passes for 216 yards the past two weeks. Even if he does get the start, Johnson will likely see fewer snaps than he did earlier in the season, and he only has eight targets in three games. Diggs is the far more intriguing player.

    Vikings' Charles Johnson: Limited at practice

    Johnson (ribs) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, ESPN reports. He missed last week's game despite participating in practice on a limited basis, so this isn't a sure sign he'll return this week. He also didn't appear to work with the first-team offense as Stefon Diggs was with Mike Wallace in the Vikings' first group of receivers during individual drills, the ESPN report adds. It's not clear that even when Johnson returns he'll get his starting job back given Diggs' strong performance the past two games.
