Olabisi Johnson listed as starter in place of inactive Adam Thielen

The Minnesota Vikings list WR Olabisi Johnson as the starter in place of Adam Thielen (reserve/COVID-19).

Fantasy Impact

Johnson hasn’t gotten a ton of reps of late with Justin Jefferson coming into the scene, but he’ll see a nice uptick in snaps today against the Panthers. He’s still not much more than a WR5 play in Week 12.

Olabisi Johnson catches one pass in Week 5 loss

Olabisi Johnson caught his only target for 13 yards in the Vikings’ 27-26 loss to the Seahawks on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

It was Johnson’s first reception since Week 2. The second-year man out of Colorado St has clearly fallen behind Justin Jefferson in the pecking order and isn’t playable even in the deepest of leagues.

Olabisi Johnson catches one pass in Week 2 loss

Olabisi Johnson caught one of three targets for 24 yards in the Vikings’ 28-11 loss to the Colts on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson nabbed a 24-yard reception Sunday, but that was the extent of his work on a dismal afternoon for the Minnesota offense. Even on days when Kirk Cousins performs better, Johnson isn’t drawing enough weekly looks to be fantasy relevant in most formats and should remain on the waiver wire.

Olabisi Johnson goes for 56 yards in loss

Olabisi Johnson brought in three of four targets for 56 yards in the Vikings’ 43-34 loss to the Packers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Olabisi Johnson finished behind only Adam Thielen for team lead in receiving yards, and he operated as the team's No. 2 wideout. Justin Jefferson is expected to be the team's second option as the year moves along, but Johnson's weekly involvement is worth monitoring.

Olabisi Johnson works with the first-team offense in scrimmage

Vikings wide receiver Olabisi Johnson worked as the No. 2 wideout in the team's scrimmage on Friday, with rookie Justin Jefferson in the slot and Adam Thielen in the outside spot opposite Johnson.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson has been regularly working with the first-team offense throughout the offseason and appears to be the favorite for a starting gig, at least in three-receiver sets. The Vikings do figure to run the ball a lot this season, and it isn't clear if Johnson or rookie Justin Jefferson will be the No. 2 wideout in two-receiver sets. In 2019, Johnson caught 31 of his 45 targets for 294 yards and three touchdowns but appears pegged for a bigger role in 2020.
