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.
Johnson's limited track record of success still makes him hard to rely on, however if you are in need of help at the wide receiver position for the final few weeks of the season, Johnson is well worth a pickup. He should also be viewed as a must-add player in all dynasty or keeper leagues.
Meanwhile, the following four players were designated as probable for Sunday:
Johnson has registered five sacks and two forced fumbles through his first 11 games played.
Johnson caught just three balls, but gained 52 yards and a score. His touchdown came in the second quarter. Johnson hauled in a 22 yard touchdown strike from Teddy Bridgewater at the beginning of the quarter. While he only had three catches, Johnson was targeted a team-high 11 times during the contest. His 52 yards led the team.
Johnson will look for more Week 13 against the Panthers.
Johnson caught six passes for 87 yards during the contest. He tied for the team lead in targets with seven. Johnson was able to show some big play ability, picking up two catches that went over 20 yards.
Johnson will hope for more Week 12 against the Packers.
