2020 Fantasy Outlook
The Cardinals selected three wide receivers in the 2019 draft, including Andy Isabella in the second round, Hakeem Butler in the fourth and Johnson in the sixth. As fate would have it, Johnson ended up the big winner in terms of playing time, but all 10 of his showings occurred before the team's Week 12 bye. The likely root cause was a lack of efficiency. Targeted 42 times, he gathered in exactly 50 percent of them at 4.5 YPT and scored one touchdown. Johnson's search for snaps took another hit when Arizona made a trade for DeAndre Hopkins, who joins Christian Kirk and Larry Fitzgerald at the top of the depth chart. As a result, there may not be regular snaps available for the aforementioned second-year wideouts or Trent Sherfield in 2020. Read Past Outlooks

Another quiet season
WRArizona Cardinals
January 22, 2021
Johnson finished the 2020 season with 15 catches (on 23 targets) for 173 yards and no touchdowns in eight appearances.
ANALYSIS
Johnson was a healthy scratch for eight of the Cardinals' first 10 contests of the campaign, but a positive COVID test and injuries to the receiving corps allowed him to get on the field down the stretch. Tossing aside his two longest catches of the season -- 45 and 32 yards -- his other 13 receptions went for a miserable 7.4 YPC and 4.6 YPT. A 2019 sixth-round pick, Johnson has two years remaining on his rookie deal, but the presence of DeAndre Hopkins and Christian Kirk -- along with the possibility Larry Fitzgerald returns and potential for offseason additions -- doesn't guarantee Johnson anything heading into the offseason.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
The first selection of the sixth round and Arizona's third wide receiver pick of the 2019 draft, Johnson is more skilled than he is physically talented, as at 6-1, 201 he tested well below average as an athlete (4.6 40, 30-inch vertical, 11.5 agility score). It's the technical aspects of playing receiver that led Arizona to target him anyway, as Johnson's route-running polish led him to total 172 catches for 2,353 yards and 16 touchdowns on 273 targets over the last two years. As much as Andy Isabella and Hakeem Butler have far better athletic talent to work with, Johnson might be the most game-ready of the three right now. In an Arizona offense that figures to lead the league in wide receiver snaps, Johnson is worth monitoring in deeper PPR leagues.
