2019 Fantasy Outlook
Johnson is Texas’ top returning receiver and has an established rapport with Sam Ehlinger. They connected on 68 of 109 targets for 985 yards and seven scores in 2018, and with Lil’Jordan Humphrey gone, Johnson is projected for a larger target. Johnson is a big-framed receiver (6-6) that makes him a matchup problem; however, Texas has a penchant for running it in the red zone with Ehlinger, which has led to disappointing numbers in that area for Johnson. Still, Johnson has an assured role and the skill to find the end zone even if he’s underutilized in the red zone. Read Past Outlooks
Unavailable Saturday
Hamstring
November 16, 2019
Johnson (hamstring) will not be available for Saturday's tilt against Iowa State, Kaelen Jones of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Johnson traveled with the team but will ultimately miss his fourth contest of the season due to injury. Devin Duvernay should serve as the primary pass-catching option versus the Cyclones, while Brennan Eagles and Jake Smith are candidates to see additional looks as well.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Either Tom Herman fooled everyone or the Texas passing game has to get going eventually, and if it does it would set up Johnson for a breakout season in his junior year. That Johnson finished last year with 765 yards and two touchdowns in 13 games isn't impressive at a glance, but there's potential for growth when presuming the typical wide receiver development curve, especially if the Texas quarterbacks can do better than 6.7 yards per attempt and 18 touchdowns on 499 attempts. It's worth recalling Johnson's blue chip pedigree when considering his 2018 projection, too.
