Johnson recorded 17 receptions for 277 yards and two touchdowns over eight games in 2019.
ANALYSIS
Johnson was activated from the practice squad in November after a slew of injuries to the Colts' wide receivers, and the 25-year-old more than doubled his career totals in all major categories over the course of eight games. His work as a consistent starter is one of the main reasons for his success. Johnson will be a restricted free agent in March, and if he stays in Indianapolis, he projects as a depth option.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Headed west with a ring, Johnson was traded from Philly and later signed to a one-year deal. One would think the Seahawks are impressed with Johnson's potential since they gave up elite pass rusher Michael Bennett in addition to a swap of picks. Still, Johnson largely is unproven with just five receptions for 45 yards and no touchdowns in 2017. With the additions of Brandon Marshall and Jaron Brown as well, Johnson likely will stay in a special teams role.
