Juwan Johnson Officially Active For Week 18

Sunday, January 7, 11:36 AM

New Orleans Saints tight end Juwan Johnson (chest) is officially active for Week 18 against the Atlanta Falcons. He'll suit up for the regular-season finale despite being listed as questionable. The 27-year-old has looked great lately, catching 14 passes for 172 yards and three touchdowns over his last three games. He had one of the best games of his career last week, commanding 12 targets while amassing 90 yards. Although he hasn't been a consistent performer this season, his recent success makes him a worthwhile option in fantasy football. Managers should view him as a fringe TE1 option given his low floor and high ceiling.
