Top Johnny Holton News

  • Johnny Holton: Cut from practice squad

    Holton was released from the Giants' practice squad Monday, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

    The 29-year-old reverted to New York's practice squad after playing 13 snaps on special teams during Week 3 against San Francisco. Holton appeared in 16 games for the Steelers last year and caught three of 15 targets for 21 yards.

  • Johnny Holton: Dropped down to practice squad

  • Giants' Johnny Holton: Elevates from practice squad

    The Giants promoted Holton to the active roster Saturday, Dan Salomone of the team's official site reports.

    With Sterling Shepard (toe) on injured reserve, Holton will be brought up from the practice squad to add depth. He played in 16 games with the Steelers last year and caught three of 15 targets for 21 yards. He'll likely operate in a reserve role with the Giants but could contribute on special teams.

  • Johnny Holton: Quick exit in New York

    Holton was released by the Giants on Saturday, Michael Eisen of the team's official site reports.

    Holton signed with the team Wednesday and didn't prove himself enough in his short time with the team to secure a roster spot. The 29-year-old was active for all 16 games with the Steelers last season but caught just three passes for 21 yards on 15 targets.

  • Giants' Johnny Holton: Latches on with New York

    Holton agreed to a contract with the Giants on Wednesday.

    Holton was let go by the Steelers this offseason but will get another opportunity to make a 53-man roster. The 28-year-old produced just three catches for 21 yards and returned three kickoffs through 16 games in 2019, so he'll be looking for a depth role.

  • Johnny Holton: Cut by Pittsburgh

    The Steelers cut Holton on Monday, Teresa Varley of the team's official site reports.

    Holton produced just three catches for 21 yards and returned three kickoffs for 55 yards through 16 games in 2019. The 28-year-old will look to catch on elsewhere in a special teams and depth receiver role.

  • Steelers' Johnny Holton: Not targeted in loss

    Holton played six snaps on offense and wasn't targeted in Sunday's 28-10 loss to the Ravens.

    Holton played in all 16 games in 2019, with the majority of his snaps coming on special teams over the final three contests. The 28-year-old wraps up the campaign with three receptions (on 15 targets) for 21 yards.

  • Steelers' Johnny Holton: Awful showing in loss

    Holton caught both his targets but lost one yard in Pittsburgh's 17-10 loss to Buffalo on Sunday night.

    The good news is that Holton brought in both balls sent his way after having caught just one of 13 targets all season. Unfortunately, the receptions accounted for a one-yard loss. For fantasy owners with something to play for in Week 16, anyone else would be a better option.

  • Steelers' Johnny Holton: First reception this season

    Holton catches one pass for 18 yards in Thursday night's 21-7 loss to Cleveland.

    The catch was the first this season for Holton, who saw his role increase with game-ending injuries to JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion) and Diontae Johnson (concussion). Holton was targeted seven times after seeing just six targets in six games this season. Even if Smith-Schuster and Johnson are unable to play in Week 12 against the Bengals, Holton is not a high-percentage fantasy option.

  • Steelers' Johnny Holton: No impact in win

    Holton failed to bring in his only target during Sunday's 24-17 win over the Chargers.

    Holton hasn't made a notable impact in the passing game through six contests this season. He does most of his damage on special teams. The 28-year-old possesses minimal fantasy value, even in the deepest of leagues.

  • Steelers' Johnny Holton: Gains first yards from scrimmage

    Holton ran once for nine yards in Sunday's 24-20 loss to San Francisco.

    The carry came late in the first half and was his only touch of the game outside of special teams. An impressive preseason earned him a roster spot, but he had only been targeted three times without a catch in the two previous games and has no fantasy value.

  • Steelers' Johnny Holton: Ascends to active roster

    Holton was promoted to the active roster Saturday.

    Holton was on the team's practice squad, and he'll serve as added depth for Sunday's game versus the Patriots. The 28-year-old has suited up for 32 games in his NFL career, but he rarely plays offensive snaps. Expect Holton to stick to special teams for now.

  • Johnny Holton: Joins Pittsburgh's practice squad

    Holton was signed to the Steelers' practice squad Monday.

    Holton spent training camp and the preseason with the Steelers, catching seven passes for 167 yards and a touchdown in exhibition play. He will now stick around in the organization and potentially be called up for depth purposes.

  • Steelers' Johnny Holton: Impresses in defeat

    Holton caught all three of his targets for 86 yards and a touchdown in Thursday night's 25-19 preseason loss to the Panthers.

    Holton not only went for a team-long reception of 44 yards, but he also caught a 31-yard touchdown nine seconds before halftime. For someone who Pittsburgh was perhaps considering retaining most for his special teams ability, Holton's offensive outburst Thursday can only help his case of making the team's regular season roster, but it remains to be seen whether that will actually happen or not.

  • Steelers' Johnny Holton: Used on special teams Saturday

    Holton (hamstring) failed to haul in his lone target and returned two kickoffs in Saturday's preseason game against the Chiefs.

    Holton had been dealing with a hamstring injury for a couple weeks, but it looks like he is past it now. While Holton appears to be buried on the team's wide receiver depth chart, it looks like he could have a chance to make the final roster on special teams.
