  • Broncos' Brandon Johnson: Finishes second season in Denver

    Johnson played in 13 games during the 2023 campaign, finishing with 19 receptions on 30 targets for 284 yards and four touchdowns.

    Johnson played in a depth role in the Broncos' wide receiver corps, limiting his opportunities throughout the season. Despite this fact, the wideout's four touchdowns were good for the second-highest total among all pass catchers in Denver. Johnson is under contract through the 2024 season and will become a restricted free agent in 2025. Heading into next season, Johnson may find it difficult to find the field consistently again if fellow receivers Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy and Marvin Mims remain on the roster.

  • Broncos' Brandon Johnson: Four grabs in win

    Johnson secured four of six targets for 27 yards in Sunday's 16-9 win over the Chargers.

    Johnson's four catches and six targets Sunday were his most in a game this season in both categories. In addition, the second-year player played 84 percent of the Broncos' offensive snaps, the most of any Denver wideout in the contest. With the Broncos eliminated from playoff contention, it's possible Johnson could maintain an elevated workload heading into Week 18 matchup against the Raiders, especially if Courtland Sutton (concussion) and Marvin Mims (hamstring) remain sidelined.

  • Broncos' Brandon Johnson: Finds end zone against Patriots

    Johnson caught three of five targets for 47 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 26-23 loss to the Patriots.

    Johnson saw increased playing time Sunday with Courtland Sutton (concussion) exiting the contest early in first half. The wideout played 68 percent of the Broncos' offensive snaps, the second-most of any receiver behind Jerry Jeudy. In 11 appearances this season, Johnson has now recorded 11 catches for 169 yards and four touchdowns. The 25-year-old could see similar usage in a Week 17 matchup with the Chargers if Sutton remains sidelined, but he would be difficult to trust for fantasy purposes.

  • Broncos' Brandon Johnson: Returns from IR

    The Broncos activated Johnson (hamstring) to their active roster Saturday, Chris Tomasson of The Denver Gazette reports.

    Johnson is set to appear in his first game since Week 7 this Sunday, and it now seems as if he's completely moved past his hamstring issue. The 25-year-old wideout has appeared in seven games for the Broncos this season, catching eight of his 13 targets for 122 yards and three touchdowns.

  • Broncos' Brandon Johnson: Set to return from IR

    The Broncos designated Johnson (hamstring) for return from injured reserve Wednesday, Aric DiLalla of the team's official site reports.

    Johnson hasn't played since Week 7 due to the hamstring injury, but he at least looks as though he'll be ready to practice this week. The Broncos will have 21 days to evaluate Johnson before either adding him back to the 53-man roster or keeping him on IR for the remainder of the season. Johnson recorded eight receptions for 122 yards and three touchdowns on 13 targets through Denver's first seven games of the season.

  • Broncos' Brandon Johnson: Heads to IR

    The Broncos placed Johnson (hamstring) on injured reserve Saturday, Parker Gabriel of The Denver Post reports.

    Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reported Friday that Johnson was considered a game-time call for Sunday's contest against the Chiefs after sustaining an injury during Thursday's practice, but his inability to practice Friday indicated that the injury was more severe than previously thought. Johnson will now have to sit out for the next four games and will be eligible to return against the Texans on Dec. 3.

  • Broncos' Brandon Johnson: Game-time call for Week 8

    Johnson (hamstring) didn't practice Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Kansas City.

    According to head coach Sean Payton, Johnson will be a game-time decision after injuring his hamstring during Thursday's practice, per Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site. Given Johnson's inability to practice Friday and the high risk of further complications with playing through soft-tissue injuries, the wide receiver is more likely than not to sit out Sunday. Official word on Johnson's status will come when the Broncos release their inactive list 90 minutes prior to Sunday's 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff.

  • Broncos' Brandon Johnson: Limited participant in practice

    Johnson (hamstring) practiced on a limited basis Thursday, Parker Gabriel of The Denver Post reports.

    The depth receiver's status seems up in the air as Sunday's game against the Chiefs approaches. Johnson played on 37 percent of the Broncos' offensive snaps in Week 7 versus the Packers but did not receive a target. The second-year pro has eight catches for 122 yards and three touchdowns in 2023.

  • Broncos' Brandon Johnson: Catchless in loss

    Johnson failed to secure either of his two targets in Thursday's 19-8 loss to the Chiefs.

    Johnson played just 16 of the Broncos 52 offensive snaps Thursday, playing behind both Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy. The second-year wideout did see the field slightly more than fellow receivers Lil'Jordan Humphrey and Marvin Mims, and neither Humphrey nor Mims earned any targets in the contest. On a day when the Broncos trailed the Chiefs from start to finish, quarterback Russell Wilson struggled to move the ball through the air. Johnson's limited usage and the offense's overall struggles prevented him and many other Broncos skill position players from producing much for fantasy purposes. Johnson will look to become more involved in a Week 7 matchup with the Packers, but he remains extremely difficult to trust for consistent production going forward.

  • Broncos' Brandon Johnson: One catch in loss

    Johnson secured his only target for nine yards in Sunday's 31-21 loss to the Jets.

    Johnson played 51 percent of the Denver's offensive snaps Sunday, ahead of rookie wideout Marvin Mims. With that said, the veteran saw just one target for the second straight week. Johnson should remain difficult to trust for consistent fantasy production, especially as Mims should continue to be brought along in the team's offensive plans. Nonetheless, the 25-year-old will look to be more involved in Denver's passing attack when the Broncos visit the Chiefs in Week 6.

  • Broncos' Brandon Johnson: Hits pay dirt in win

    Johnson caught his only target for four yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-28 win over the Bears.

    Johnson made the most of his one target Sunday, finding the end zone in the third quarter to bring the Broncos within two scores of the Bears. After seeing three targets in each of the first three games, the veteran was less involved in Denver's offensive attack in Week 4. Meanwhile, rookie wideout Marvin Mims matched Johnson's offensive snap total for the first time this season, with both receivers playing 17 snaps. Through four weeks, it appears that Johnson and Russell Wilson have developed some chemistry, but Mims' big-play ability and increased involvement could point toward a changing of the guard at the No. 3 receiver spot. Nonetheless, Johnson will look to be more involved when the Broncos host the Jets' stingy defense in Week 5.

  • Broncos' Brandon Johnson: Catches two passes in loss

    Johnson caught two of his three targets for 12 yards in Sunday's 70-20 loss to the Dolphins.

    Johnson played 60 percent of the Broncos' offensive snaps Sunday, operating as Denver's No. 3 wideout. Meanwhile, rookie Marvin Mims continued to play behind Johnson, logging just a 24 percent snap share. Unfortunately, the veteran was unable to produce much for fantasy purposes despite being in a pass-heavy game script for most of the contest. Going forward, it's reasonable to think that Johnson could fall behind Mims on the depth chart if the first-year receiver continues to make big plays on an offense that desperately needs a spark. Nonetheless, the 25-year-old will look to keep a hold of his spot on the depth chart in a favorable matchup in Week 3, as the Broncos visit the Bears and their struggling defense.

  • Broncos' Brandon Johnson: Catches Hail Mary TD

    Johnson caught two of three targets for 66 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 35-33 loss to Washington.

    Johnson was the recipient of a Hail Mary attempt from Russell Wilson that bounced off multiple players before landing in his hands for a 50-yard touchdown on the final play of regulation. The 25-year-old had just one reception for 16 yards prior to his improbable score, so fantasy managers should be careful not to overvalue his final line when scouring waiver wires this week. Johnson will continue serving as a backup option for Denver's upcoming tilt against Miami.
