Vikings' Charles Johnson: Fails to make a catch Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Johnson did not have a catch and was targeted just once in Thursday's preseason win over Seattle.

Johnson wasn't a big part of the offense, as the first-team receivers didn't get many passes thrown their way (Stefon Diggs also had one target). Johnson still appears to be the No. 2 wide receiver, as Laquon Treadwell failed to catch any of his four targets. However, the battle for the No. 2 and No. 3 receiver roles could carry through the early part of the season. Still, it's time to take Johnson seriously, as he'll have a starting job when the regular season begins.

Vikings' Charles Johnson: Has 49-yard TD catch in preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Johnson had one catch for a 49-yard touchdown in Friday's preseason win over the Bengals.

Johnson's positive momentum continues as he drew raves in spring practices, has had a strong training camp and had a big play with an impressive double move to get wide open deep. Johnson appeared as a starting wide receiver ahead of Laquon Treadwell on Minnesota's initial depth chart of the preseason. It's possible he may keep the job longer than many expect if his performances this summer return him to his 2014 form.

Vikings' Charles Johnson: Could begin season as starter
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Johnson could begin the season as a starting wide receiver at split end while rookie Laquon Treadwell gets eased into the offense, reports ESPN 1500 AM Twin Cities.

Johnson emerged in the second half of 2014 with 25 receptions on 46 targets for 415 yards and two touchdowns across the final seven games. However, he struggled last season with injuries and went without a catch after Week 9. Nonetheless, he drew rave reviews in spring practices and has been working with the first-team offense in training camp. It's possible Johnson could get increased playing time early in the season, return to his 2014 form, and stay in the mix.

Vikings' Charles Johnson: Getting first-team reps
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Johnson has been working with the first-team offense at split end during spring practices with Stefon Diggs shifting over to flanker, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Laquon Treadwell, Minnesota's 2016 first-round draft pick, has been working with the second team. Johnson has likely been working with the first team just because the Vikings want to ease Treadwell into the mix, but this shows Johnson isn't finished as far as competing for playing time. Johnson emerged in the second half of the 2014 campaign, accruing 25 receptions on 46 targets for 415 yards and two touchdowns across the final seven games, but struggled last season with injuries, was phased out of the offense, and went without a catch after Week 9. He still faces an uphill battle for playing time with the Vikings likely to go with Diggs, Treadwell and Jarius Wright as the top three receiver options.

Vikings' Charles Johnson: Faces more competition at WR
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Johnson will enter training camp with increased competition for a top-three receiver role with the Vikings taking Laquon Treadwell in the first round of the 2016 NFL draft.

With Stefon Diggs likely to enter training camp as the No. 1 receiver and Jarius Wright expected to retain the slot receive role, Johnson may continue to be relegated in the offense if Treadwell wins the No. 2 receiver role. Johnson emerged in the second half of the 2014 campaign, accruing 25 receptions on 46 targets for 415 yards and two touchdowns across the final seven games, but struggled last season with injuries, was phased out of the offense, and went without a catch after Week 9. The drafting of Treadwell will likely push Johnson towards a minimal role again in 2016.
