WR - NYG
This Week Outlook
Marcus Johnson caught one of his six targets for three yards in a 27-13 loss to Seattle.
Johnson tied Darius Slayton for the most targets on the team Sunday. The 28-year-old’s six targets were a season high, and has only converted his 16 targets into six catches this season. Fantasy managers should still leave Johnson on the waiver wire.
Marcus Johnson caught two of his four targets for 25 yards in a win over the Ravens in Week 6.
Johnson has appeared in the last two games for the Giants, tallying five receptions 60 yards during that span. The 28-year-old likely will not carry any fantasy value unless their are injuries on the depth chart in front of him. The Giants will look to add to their winning streak in Week 7 against the Jaguars.
According to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo, the New York Giants are signing WR Marcus Johnson to the team's practice squad.
Johnson spent some time with the San Francisco 49ers this offseason after playing his first five seasons in Philadelphia, Indianapolis and Tennessee. Johnson has 51 career catches for 839 yards and three touchdowns. He adds another body to a deep, but not too potent, Giants WR depth chart.
The San Francisco 49ers released WR Marcus Johnson on Tuesday.
Johnson signed a one-year deal with the 49ers but only had $250,000 guaranteed. The 28-year-old has been a fairly productive depth WR with the Eagles, Colts, and Titans during his five year NFL career. Johnson should receive interest from teams in need of depth at WR.
Marcus Johnson caught five of six targets for 100 yards as the Titans defeated the Saints on Sunday by a 23-21 score in Week 10 action.
Johnson came into Week 10 with just four catches on 12 targets but looked great in an increased role on Sunday. The 27-year-old wide receiver may have moved himself up the depth chart but is only worth rostering in deeper fantasy leagues.
