    Saints' Juwan Johnson: One target against Washington

    Juwan Johnson saw one target but did not record a catch during Sunday's 33-22 win over Washington.Johnson wasn't needed much on a day when Marquez Callaway and Alvin Kamara shared the team lead with eight targets apiece. With the New Orleans Saints on bye in Week 6, he'll look to get back on track in Week 7 against the Seahawks.

    Saints' Juwan Johnson: Scores third TD of season

    Juwan Johnson caught two of three targets for 20 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 27-21 loss to the Giants.It's becoming clear that Johnson is the New Orleans Saints' preferred receiving option at tight end. Even though Adam Trautman saw six looks in the season opener, he has seen just two targets in three games since while Johnson has already seen three targets three times this year. While he's not seeing enough volume to be anything more than a touchdown-dependent fantasy option, Johnson's role in the red zone makes him a respectable dart throw for deep-league fantasy owners who are desperate for production.

    Saints' Juwan Johnson: Small role against Patriots

    Juwan Johnson was not targeted during Sunday's 28-13 win over the Patriots.Johnson logged a season-low eight offensive snaps and actually saw more action on special teams in this one. Meanwhile, Adam Trautman led New Orleans Saints tight ends with over 80 percent of the snaps while Garrett Griffin set a new season high with 48 percent. If the Saints move forward with a similar run-heavy approach that involves doses of Taysom Hill, Johnson could struggle for playing time, let alone offensive production.

    Saints' Juwan Johnson: Gets another handful of targets

    Juwan Johnson caught one of three targets for 23 yards during Sunday's 26-7 loss to Carolina.After seeing 19 percent of the offensive snaps Week 1, Johnson jumped to 41 percent Sunday while Adam Trautman fell from 82 to 52. While it's possible that game script played a large role in those disparities considering the New Orleans Saints attempted nearly half as many rushing attempts compared to the season opener, Johnson saw three looks in both games, and it looks like he could have some sort of role in the passing game regardless of the situation. Next up is a Week 3 trip to New England.

    Saints' Juwan Johnson: Catches two touchdowns in opener

    Juwan Johnson hauled in all three of his targets for 21 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 38-3 win over the Packers.Johnson served as a wide receiver during his rookie year in 2020, but he transitioned to tight end during the offseason and became more involved in the offense during camp. The 25-year-old played just 12 offensive snaps Sunday, but he saw some work in the red zone during the blowout win. Although fellow tight end Adam Trautman led the team with six targets against Green Bay, Johnson made an immediate impact at his new position.

    Saints' Juwan Johnson: Earns roster spot

    Juwan Johnson has made the regular-season roster at tight end, Mike Triplett of ESPN reports.Johnson figures to have some sort of role as a pass-catching tight end throughout the year. However, with top receiver Michael Thomas (ankle) set to miss the first six weeks of the season and both Adam Trautman (ankle) and Nick Vannett (knee) bouncing back from minor injuries, Johnson could have a chance to show what he can do in an expanded role as soon as Week 1.

    Saints' Juwan Johnson: Doing well in new role

    Juwan Johnson is more involved in the offense since transitioning to tight end, Luke Johnson of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.Johnson mainly was used to block from a receiver position during his rookie year, but he has since been moved to tight end in Year 2, and it appears to be a more natural fit for the 6-foot-4, 231-pound Oregon product. Not only can Johnson still be used to block, he is more of a receiving mismatch against linebackers than he is against cornerbacks, as evidenced by his two-catch, 71-yard performance during last weekend's preseason game against Baltimore. Add in the fact that none of New Orleans' other depth options at tight end seem to have stood out this summer, and Johnson seems to have a great chance at securing a roster spot yet again.

    Saints' Juwan Johnson: Spending time at tight end

    Juwan Johnson spent time working at tight end this offseason, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.Johnson was mostly asked to block when active on game days during his rookie year. The New Orleans Saints have since talked about moving him from receiver to tight end, and Johnson practicing at that position during spring workouts all but confirms that notion. At 6-foot-4 and 231 pounds, Johnson will probably need to put on a little weight in order to excel as an in-line blocker, but the second-year Oregon product could potentially carve out a significant role as a pass catcher considering the Saints have little receiving talent at tight end behind Adam Trautman.

    Saints' Juwan Johnson: Minimally involved in 2020

    Juwan Johnson caught four passes for 39 yards in his first NFL season.The rookie out of Oregon barely saw the field in his inaugural campaign, and it will be difficult to project him for much more usage in his second season. Johnson produced his minimal numbers despite multiple injuries in the New Orleans Saints' receiving corps throughout the season. If Michael Thomas, Deonte Harris, Tre'Quan Smith and Emmanuel Sanders can remain healthy in 2021, targets will become even more limited.

    Saints' Juwan Johnson: Sitting out Sunday

    Juwan Johnson (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's wild-card game against the Bears.Johnson played in each of the final five regular-season games, but he and Austin Carr will serve as healthy scratches for the first round of playoffs. Lil'Jordan Humphrey, who was elevated from the practice squad Saturday, will add depth behind Michael Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders, Deonte Harris and Marquez Callaway.
