Saints' Austin Johnson: Signs with Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The New Orleans Saints signed Austin 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.

Austin Johnson: Released by Saints

The Saints released Austin Johnson on Tuesday, NOLA.com reports.

Johnson appeared in six games for the Saints this season and even started one, but he was deemed expendable after being declared inactive twice of the last four weeks.

Saints' Austin Johnson: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Austin Johnson is inactive for Sunday's game against the Colts, Evan Woodberry of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

The New Orleans 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 FB Austin Johnson vultures touchdown in Sunday's loss
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

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.
