Saints' C.J. Gardner-Johnson: Leads team in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner-Johnson recorded six tackles (five solo) in the Saints' 35-29 win over the Lions on Sunday.

Gardner-Johnson led the Saints in tackles, playing a key role in the six-point victory. He'll likely be needed for high productivity in Week 5 when New Orleans faces the Chargers and electric rookie Justin Herbert.

Saints' Chauncey Gardner-Johnson: Quality rookie campaign
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner-Johnson ended his rookie season with 49 tackles (38 solo), one interception and a forced fumble in 2019.

The fourth-rounder out of Florida played a key role in New Orleans' defense in his rookie season, starting seven contests and forcing two turnovers. He was in the starting lineup for the final three games of the regular season and played just over 80 percent of defensive snaps in that stretch, finishing the 2019 campaign on a high note. He'll look to take the next step forward in 2020 when he returns for his second season with the Saints.

Saints' Chauncey Gardner-Johnson: Eight tackles and fumble recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner-Johnson recorded eight tackles (five solo) and a tackle for a loss in the Saints' 38-28 win over the Titans on Sunday.

Gardner-Johnson produced a solid performance Sunday after clearing the concussion protocol earlier in the week and earning the starting nod against Tennessee. He recorded eight tackles for the second week in a row while adding a fumble recovery. He'll look to build on his late-season momentum in Week 17 against Carolina.

Saints' Chauncey Gardner-Johnson: Preparing to start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner-Johnson (concussion) is lining up as a starter for the team's Week 16 contest against the Titans, John Hendrix of Sports Illustrated reports.

Gardner-Johnson has played an inconsistent role for the team throughout the season. However, he cleared concussion protocol in time for the team's Week 16 contest and should be in line for an increased role with Vonn Bell (knee) inactive.

Saints' Chauncey Gardner-Johnson: Clears concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner-Johnson (concussion) is active Week 16 against the Titans, Luke Johnson of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Gardner-Johnson saw his highest defensive snap count in the last three games Week 15 against Indianapolis, but emerged from the contest with a concussion. He's since cleared protocol and even logged a full practice session, paving the way for a Week 16 return.

Saints' Chauncey Gardner-Johnson: Logs full practice Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner-Johnson (concussion) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports.

Gardner-Johnson upped his practice participation each day since sitting out Wednesday. If active, he'll likely get the start with Vonn Bell out due to a knee injury.

Saints' Chauncey Gardner-Johnson: Limited Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner-Johnson (concussion) was limited in Thursday's practice, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

Gardner-Johnson is making progress through the league's five-step protocol for head injuries after being sidelined to begin the week. The rookie fourth-round pick will need to fully clear the concussion protocol before retaking the field. With Vonn Bell (knee) also nursing an injury, D.J. Swearinger could be in line to play an expanded role on defense against the Titans on Sunday.

Saints' Chauncey Gardner-Johnson: Suffers concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner-Johnson suffered a concussion and has been ruled out for the remainder of Monday's contest, Amie Just of The Times-Picayune reports.

The rookie will have to pass concussion protocol testing before he can return to the field in a future contest. The safety recorded eight tackles (six solo) before exiting the contest. If Gardner-Johnson should miss multiple games, the Saints can take solace in the fact they signed veteran Janoris Jenkins earlier in the day.

Saints' Chauncey Gardner-Johnson: New Orleans selects in fourth round
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints selected Gardner-Johnson in the fourth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 105th overall.

Gardner-Johnson (5-foot-11, 210 pounds) showed standout playmaking ability at Florida, where as a junior last year he intercepted four passes (returning two for touchdowns) while making nine tackles for loss, and he supplemented his prospect profile with a standout 4.48-second 40-yard dash at the combine. The Saints already have Marcus Williams and Vonn Bell at safety, however, so Gardner-Johnson will probably play special teams while otherwise rotating into sub packages when they want to limit Bell's coverage exposure. If Bell should leave the picture at some point, then Gardner-Johnson would project as a starter and could emerge as an IDP factor for New Orleans.
