Johnson, a seventh-round pick who bounced around on two different rosters, has found a home for the future in Minnesota. He hauled in four of eight passes thrown of his way Sunday, leading the team in targets, and finished second with 103 yards, the first 100-yard performance of his career. More than half of the yards came on a 56-yard touchdown, his second in three games.
Johnson started to see his role increase in Week 11, when he had six receptions for 87 yards. In four games since, he is averaging 9.8 Fantasy points per game in standard scoring, thanks to a pair of touchdowns and 283 yards in four games.
