Vikings WR Charles Johnson (quad) is active for today’s opener against the Titans. He’s expected to start alongside Stefon Diggs but shouldn’t be in fantasy lineups.
The Panthers reached a deal late Friday with former Vikings WR Charles Johnson. That gives Carolina both of the NFL's players by that name -- the other plays DE -- as well as a speed receiver to fill Ted Ginn's vacated role. Johnson, of course, failed to deliver much fantasy relevance in Minnesota and will slot behind at least Kelvin Benjamin and TE Greg Olsen in Carolina. He'll likely fit behind WR Devin Funchess as well and will need to compete with fellow free-agent addition Russell Shepard -- plus whoever else arrives this offseason. Don't bet on fantasy impact from Johnson with the Panthers
Vikings WR Charles Johnson (quad) is questionable for Sunday’s opener against the Titans after a limited week of practice. He shouldn’t be in fantasy lineups, but his absence would give rookie WR Laquon Treadwell a shot to make a case for a starting job.
Vikings WR Charles Johnson started Friday night's preseason opener and grabbed a 49-yard TD catch from Teddy Bridgewater against the Bengals. It's time to at least consider Johnson as a late-round flier in fantasy football drafts. He let owners down big time in 2015, but there's almost no risk to picking Johnson in the final few rounds of your draft. We'll see if rookie WR Laquon Treadwell can make a play for the starting job opposite Stefon Diggs.
Vikings WR Charles Johnson (ribs) is active for today’s game against the Lions. He’s expected to play behind WRs Mike Wallace and Stefon Diggs and isn’t a viable Week 7 fantasy starter.
Vikings WR Charles Johnson (ribs) put in a full week of practice and is probable for Sunday’s game against the Lions. He reportedly split 1st-team reps with WR Stefon Diggs in practice this week. Diggs remains the superior Week 7 fantasy play, but Johnson’s return adds some risk.
