2021 Fantasy Outlook
Johnson was one of the latest undrafted receivers to make a name for himself in New Orleans. However, the 6-foot-4, 231-pound Johnson did his best work as a blocker in 2020 and has now moved to tight end ahead of the 2021 campaign. While there is a huge opportunity for someone to step up in New Orleans with Michael Thomas (ankle) expected to miss the first quarter of the season, Johnson may be stuck in part-time role as he continues to learn a new position.

Gets another handful of targets
TENew Orleans Saints
September 20, 2021
Johnson caught one of three targets for 23 yards during Sunday's 26-7 loss to Carolina.
ANALYSIS
After seeing 19 percent of the offensive snaps Week 1, Johnson jumped to 41 percent Sunday while Adam Trautman fell from 82 to 52. While it's possible that game script played a large role in those disparities considering the Saints attempted nearly half as many rushing attempts compared to the season opener, Johnson saw three looks in both games, and it looks like he could have some sort of role in the passing game regardless of the situation. Next up is a Week 3 trip to New England.
