Cardinals' KeeSean Johnson: Makes rare appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson made a seven-yard catch during Sunday's 20-17 defeat in New England.

The Cardinals were shorthanded at wide receiver due to Larry Fitzgerald (illness) and Trent Sherfield (undisclosed) residing on the reserve/COVID-19 list. As a result, Johnson got on the field for the first time since Week 5 and almost made the most of his nine offensive snaps. On a short catch-and-run near the goal line before halftime, he was ruled to have broken the plane, but upon a review the play was reversed, and he was credited with the aforementioned grab. If Fitzgerald and/or Sherfield can't make it back to the active roster for Sunday's contest against the Rams, Johnson again may serve as the No. 4 WR behind DeAndre Hopkins, Christian Kirk and Andy Isabella.

Cardinals' KeeSean Johnson: Logs another DNP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson was a healthy scratch for Sunday's 37-34 overtime victory versus the Seahawks.

In a game in which the Cardinals had four wide receivers with at least a 50-percent share of the snaps on offense, Johnson's DNP tells much about his standing in the receiving corps. All of DeAndre Hopkins, Christian Kirk, Larry Fitzgerald and Andy Isabella met the aforementioned playing criteria, while Trent Sherfield remained busy on special teams Sunday. As a result, Johnson is a fantasy non-entity at the moment.

Cardinals' KeeSean Johnson: Scratched for MNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (coach's decision) is inactive for Monday's game versus the Cowboys.

Johnson played just five offensive snaps in a Week 5 win against the Jets, and now he's been pushed completely out of the gameplan. There aren't many reps to go around with DeAndre Hopkins, Christian Kirk and Larry Fitzgerald handling most of the snaps in three-wide sets, but now Andy Isabella and Trent Sherfield are the only remaining reserves.

Cardinals' KeeSean Johnson: Secures short catch Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson gathered in his only target for five yards during Sunday's 30-10 road victory against the Jets.

Johnson's sole offensive look occurred just before the two-minute warning of the fourth quarter, and he got on the field for just five of the Cardinals' 75 plays on offense. On a positive note, he's impacted the box score in both of his appearances this season, so an injury on the depth chart in front of him may result in some targets for the second-year pro.

Cardinals' KeeSean Johnson: Logs another DNP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson was active but didn't play in Sunday's 31-21 loss at Carolina.

In fact, Johnson has only made his way onto the field in one of four games this season (Week 3 against the Lions when Christian Kirk was sidelined with a groin injury). If the pattern holds moving forward, Johnson will need an absence from the wide receivers above him on the depth chart to make an impact in the fantasy realm, and all of DeAndre Hopkins, Larry Fitzgerald, Kirk and Andy Isabella earned offensive snaps Sunday.

Cardinals' KeeSean Johnson: Makes two catches in season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson played 46 of 65 offensive snaps during Sunday's 26-23 loss to the Lions on his way to two catches (on seven targets) for 24 yards.

Among the eight Cardinals who recorded catches Week 3, five of them had a catch rate at or above 83.3 percent. Johnson wasn't one of them, as evidenced by his stat line, and accounted for nearly half of Kyler Murray's 12 incompletions. That said, Johnson was making his season debut after spending the first two games of the year on the reserve/COVID-19 list and seemed to be thrust into three-wide sets more often than Andy Isabella with Christian Kirk (groin) sidelined. If Kirk continues to miss time, Johnson may be able to expect a similar workload to Sunday's in the short term.

Cardinals' KeeSean Johnson: Season debut on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson is expected to have a role Sunday against the Lions with Christian Kirk (groin) sidelined, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Johnson missed the first two games of the season due to a spell on the reserve/COVID-19 list, but now that he's available, coach Kliff Kingsbury believes both Johnson and Andy Isabella will be involved in Arizona's offense. After being a regular part of the receiving corps as a rookie last year through the team's Week 12 bye, Johnson didn't log a single snap in the final five games of the campaign. His 8.8 YPC and 50 percent catch rate were uninspiring, to say the least, but he'll have a chance to make an impact as long as Kirk is sidelined.

Cardinals' KeeSean Johnson: Back from COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals activated Johnson from the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Johnson is eligible to rejoin the team, and he'll begin preparing for Sunday's game versus the Lions. The 23-year-old wideout averaged 37.8 snaps per game in 2019, but he likely won't garner the same usage right away with DeAndre Hopkins in the picture now. He'll battle with Andy Isabella and Trent Sherfield for reps.

Cardinals' KeeSean Johnson: Placed on COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday afternoon, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

This explains why Johnson was held out of practice Thursday and Friday for non-injury reasons, though it doesn't necessarily mean he tested positive for COVID-19, as it's possible he merely came into contact with an infected individual. The timing suggests he isn't likely to play in Sunday's game against the 49ers, though he might've been a healthy scratch even if he were available.

Cardinals' KeeSean Johnson: Misses back-to-back practices
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson missed practice Thursday and Friday for non-injury reasons, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

With no other details provided, it isn't clear if Johnson will be available for Sunday's game in San Francisco. It also isn't clear he'll have a significant role -- or even be active -- if he is available. The 2019 sixth-round pick was limited to a 21-187-1 receiving line on 42 targets last year.

Cardinals' KeeSean Johnson: Appears in 10 games as rookie
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson recorded 21 catches (on 42 targets) for 187 yards and one touchdown in 10 appearances during the 2019 campaign.

A regular in the Cardinals offense through Week 11, Johnson was a healthy scratch for the last six games of the season. The weekly decision was a curious one, considering the team was unable to get consistent production out of its outside receivers. Perhaps a full offseason to get acquainted with Kyler Murray and within coach Kliff Kingsbury's system will help Johnson regain a hold in the WR rotation, but he also will have competition for reps in the form of Trent Sherfield and fellow 2019 draftees Andy Isabella and Hakeem Butler.

Cardinals' KeeSean Johnson: Won't suit up Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (coach's decision) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

Johnson will be a healthy scratch for the fourth consecutive time Sunday, as he has 21 catches for 187 yards and a touchdown this season. With the rookie sidelined again, Andy Isabella and Trent Sherfield are in line to handle the depth receiver snaps for the game.

Cardinals' KeeSean Johnson: Another healthy scratch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (coach's decision) is listed as inactive Sunday against the Browns, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Johnson has yet to suit up since the team's Week 12 bye, marking his third consecutive absence and fourth overall this season. If he continues to be a healthy scratch the rest of the way, he'll finish his rookie campaign with a 21-187-1 line on 42 targets.

Cardinals' KeeSean Johnson: Healthy scratch again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Johnson missed just one contest prior to the Cardinals' Week 12 bye, only to emerge from the break with back-to-back healthy scratches. While the rookie sticks to the sideline, the offense will rely on Andy Isabella, Damiere Byrd and Trent Sherfield as its outside receivers.

Cardinals' KeeSean Johnson: Not playing Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (coach's decision) is listed as inactive Sunday against the Rams, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Prior to the Cardinals' Week 12 bye, Johnson was a healthy scratch just once in 11 games, so his inclusion among the inactives this weekend is somewhat surprising. In his absence, Andy Isabella, Trent Sherfield and Damiere Byrd will serve as the team's outside receivers in some order.

Cardinals' KeeSean Johnson: Minimal production again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson recorded two catches on two targets for 14 yards during Sunday's 36-26 loss in San Francisco.

Johnson led all Cardinals outside receivers with a 33 percent share of the offensive plays, but once again he failed to impact the box score much, failing short of 20 receiving yards for the sixth time in 10 appearances this season. Because he has just 8.9 yards per catch, 4.5 yards per target and a 50 percent catch rate, it's difficult to rely on Johnson from week to week.

Cardinals' KeeSean Johnson: Puts up zeroes in box score
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson played 53 percent of the offensive snaps during Sunday's 30-27 defeat in Tampa Bay.

Despite leading all Cardinals outside receivers in the category, Johnson was blanked in the box score, failing to haul in any of his four targets. He's has the steadiest role at his particular position this season, seeing at least 40 percent of plays on offense in seven of nine appearances. Still, fellow rookie wide receiver Andy Isabella has come on of late with a 4-166-1 line on four targets over the last two games. At the moment, it appears coach Kliff Kingsbury is comfortable with the duo operating on the outside with 2019 first overall pick Kyler Murray under center.

Cardinals' KeeSean Johnson: First career scoring grab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson secured two of three targets for 22 yards and a touchdown in the Cardinals' 28-25 loss to the 49ers on Thursday.

A healthy inactive just four days prior in Week 8, Johnson made an impact Thursday with a nine-yard touchdown grab early in the third quarter. The rookie hasn't come close to matching his 5-46 line from Week 1 against the Lions, and despite logging his first career touchdown Thursday, his production will remain hard to trust in Week 10 against the Buccaneers.

Cardinals' KeeSean Johnson: Healthy inactive Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Saints, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Since hauling in five of 10 targets in the season-opening tie with Detroit in his NFL debut, Johnson has seen his role in the Cardinals' passing attack diminish. He's notched only 12 receptions over the past six games and played a season-low five snaps in the Week 7 win over the Giants while the coaching staff handed more opportunities to Pharoh Cooper and Andy Isabella. With Johnson inactive, Damiere Byrd and Trent Sherfield will represent the Cardinals' main downfield threats in Week 8.

Cardinals' KeeSean Johnson: Sparsely used Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson tallied one reception (on two targets) for six yards during Sunday's 27-21 road win versus the Giants.

Johnson's share of the offensive snaps has swung wildly from week to week, ranging from 32 percent Week 2 to a season-high 95 percent Week 5. Consequently, the sudden drop Sunday to eight percent of those plays was unprecedented, as no injury was reported for the 2019 second-round pick, and the receiving corps still was without Christian Kirk (ankle). Johnson was a distant third to fellow outside options Trent Sherfield (82 percent) and Damiere Byrd (80 percent) in terms of usage, so it'll be interesting to see if that remains the reality Week 8 versus the Saints and beyond.
