Olabisi Johnson logs seven receptions in spot start

Olabisi Johnson brought in all seven of his targets for 74 yards and converted a two-point conversion in the Vikings’ 28-27 win over the Panthers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson drew a start in place of Adam Thielen (reserve/COVID list) and produced easily his best game of the season. Sporting a 6/102 receiving line entering this one, Johnson more than doubled his receptions and nearly matched his yardage output through this performance. If Thielen is ruled out for Week 13 against Jacksonville, Johnson offers some flex appeal in deeper leagues, though Kirk Cousins won't be expected to throw 45 passes like he did in Week 12.

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.
