Nick Underhill of Saints.football reports that Saints TE Juwan Johnson "suffered a lower leg injury and is expected to miss a good amount of time." We'll watch for more specifics on the injury, but that sounds pretty ominous. Underhill did add that he hasn't heard that Johnson will be sidelined into the regular season.

Klint Kubiak is expected to be named the Saints' new OC, according to multiple reports. Kubiak is currently the 49ers' passing-game coordinator, so the move can't become official until after the Super Bowl. The 36-year-old son of Gary Kubiak has 10 seasons of NFL coaching experience. That includes serving as Vikings OC back in 2021. That team ranked 12th in total yards and 14th in points, ranking near the middle of the pack in run/pass split.

Saints TE Juwan Johnson (chest) is active for today’s game vs. the Falcons. He only got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday, but we never sensed any concern about his status for this one. Johnson has garnered 19 targets over the last two weeks and now gets Atlanta’s 24th-ranked TE defense.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Saints TE Juwan Johnson (chest) is "good to go" for today's game vs. the Falcons. With 19 targets over the last two weeks, Johnson finds himself safely inside the top 10 of the Week 18 TE Rankings.

Saints TE Juwan Johnson (chest) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Falcons. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. Johnson should be able to play come Sunday, but we’ll find out for sure when New Orleans’ inactives come out around 11:30 am ET.

Saints TE Juwan Johnson (chest) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. He should be available for this weekend's game vs. the Falcons, but we'll see how he's listed on the final injury report tomorrow.

Saints TE Juwan Johnson (chest) did not practice on Wednesday. He's coming off a season-best 8-90-1 line in last week's win over the Bucs and seemed to come out of that game ok. We'll see if Johnson gets back on the practice field tomorrow

Saints TE Juwan Johnson (quad) is active for today’s game vs. the Panthers. TE Taysom Hill’s absence makes Johnson a slightly better fantasy bet, but he still sits outside the top 20 in the Week 14 TE Rankings.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Saints TE Taysom Hill (foot, left hand) is not expected to play vs. the Panthers today. He's averaged 5.8 carries and 2.8 targets per game this season and is tied for the team lead with seven carries inside the five-yard line. Hill's absence today is particularly good news for RB Alvin Kamara's TD projection. TE Juwan Johnson (quad) is expected to play today, per Schefter, but remains a desperation fantasy option.

Asked whether Taysom Hill will play Sunday against the Panthers, Saints beat writer Nick Underhill said, "I'd be surprised but we'll see." Hill's officially questionable with foot and hand injuries, but you should plan as though he's not playing against Carolina. That can only help TE Juwan Johnson's playing time and the goal-line opportunities for New Orleans RBs. We'll confirm Hill's status Sunday morning.

Saints TE Juwan Johnson (quad) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Panthers. He got in three limited practices this week, so we’re expecting him to play. Johnson’s fantasy stock would get a slight boost if TE Taysom Hill sits. But he still wouldn’t be a recommended TE1.

Saints WR Rashid Shaheed (quad) is "likely" to miss Sunday's game against the Lions, according to insider Nick Underhill. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport adds that Shaheed avoided a major injury, so he can stay stashed on benches in deeper fantasy leagues. WR Chris Olave is also iffy for Week 13 with his concussion, which could leave A.T. Perry, Keith Kirkwood, and Lynn Bowden as New Orleans' top three WRs. We'd expect to see a lot of Alvin Kamara, Taysom Hill, and Juwan Johnson in that case.

Saints TE Juwan Johnson (calf) is not listed on the final Week 8 injury report. He’ll be back for Sunday’s game vs. the Colts after missing the previous four weeks. We’ll see how routes and targets are divvied between Johnson and Taysom Hill, but neither is a reliable Week 8 fantasy play.

Saints HC Dennis Allen said Monday that he expects TE Juwan Johnson (calf) back for this weekend's game vs. the Colts. Johnson has missed the last three games with a calf injury. Taysom Hill has led Saints TEs in routes in all three of those games and racked up 13 targets over the last two. We'll see what the TE room looks like with Johnson back in the mix. His return makes Hill a risky Week 8 fantasy play.

Saints TE Juwan Johnson (calf) is out for Thursday night's game vs. the Jaguars. TE Taysom Hill came out of nowhere last week to register a 65% route rate and career-high eight targets. We'd still try not to use him in season-long fantasy lineups, but he's an intriguing play in one-game DFS contests.

Saints TE Juwan Johnson (calf) did not practice on Tuesday. It doesn't look like he'll make it back for Thursday night's game vs. the Jaguars. Taysom Hill led Saints TEs with a 65% route rate and eight targets last week.

Saints TE Juwan Johnson (calf) did not practice all week and is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Texans. TEs Taysom Hill, Foster Moreau, and Jimmy Graham split routes with Johnson out last week. None can be trusted in Week 6 fantasy lineups.
