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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ...

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.... See More ... See Less
Broncos' Brandon Johnson: Two catches in loss
Johnson secured two of three targets for 31 yards in Sunday's 17-16 loss to the Raiders.
Johnson was on the field for 50 percent of the Broncos' offensive snaps Sunday, the third-most of all Denver wideouts. Surprisingly, the veteran played ahead of rookie standout Marvin Mims, nearly doubling his snap total. Johnson is likely to continue to see limited usage with a crowded group of pass catchers ahead of him in the Broncos' offensive attack. Fellow receiver Jerry Jeudy (hamstring) should return to action soon, which will further limit Johnson's potential going forward. The 25-year-old remains off the fantasy radar when the Broncos host the Commanders in Week 2.... See More ... See Less
Broncos' Brandon Johnson: Back at practice
Johnson (leg) practiced Tuesday, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.
Johnson suffered the injury more than two weeks ago and has been out of action since. The second-year-pro is likely near the bubble in regards to making the team's 53-man roster, so his return should be beneficial in his attempts to make the final cut.... See More ... See Less
Broncos' Brandon Johnson: Dealing with injury
Johnson suffered a leg injury during practice Tuesday, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.
Johnson joined the Broncos in 2022 after going undrafted out of UCF. After initially starting on the team's practice squad, he earned a spot on the 53-man roster, appearing in seven contests and making six catches on 14 targets for 42 yards and a touchdown. He was having a terrific camp according to Renck, and was in the mix for a spot on the 53-man roster. The injury is not expected to be serious and he'll now focus on recovering and returning to the practice field.... See More ... See Less
Broncos' Brandon Johnson: Scores once in rookie season
Johnson caught six of 14 targets for 42 yards and one touchdown while playing seven games in the 2022 season.
Signed as an undrafted free agent before the season, Johnson did not see a significant amount of a playing time during the 2022 campaign. With that said, the rookie was one of only four wide receivers to record a touchdown grab for the Broncos this season. Johnson is under contract through the 2024 season before becoming a restricted free agent in 2025. The 24-year-old will look to retain a spot on the roster this offseason with a new coaching staff coming to Denver. Assuming he sticks with the Broncos, Johnson will likely find himself in an uphill battle for playing time once again in 2023, as fellow wideouts Jerry Jeudy, Courtland Sutton, Tim Patrick (knee) and KJ Hamler (hamstring) are all under contract for next season. Proving to have some chemistry with Russell Wilson, Johnson could provide some solid depth at the position if and when injuries become an issue going forward.... See More ... See Less
Broncos' Brandon Johnson: Inactive Sunday
Johnson (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Rams.
Johnson caught three of his four targets for 30 yards in last week's win over the Cardinals, but with Courtland Sutton (hamstring) back in the mix Sunday, he's the odd man out in the Broncos' Week 16 wideout corps.... See More ... See Less
Broncos' Brandon Johnson: Catches three passes
Johnson caught three of four targets for 30 yards in Sunday's 24-15 win over the Cardinals.
Johnson operated as Denver's No. 2 receiver behind Jerry Jeudy, playing 41 of the Broncos' 69 offensive snaps in the contest. The rookie's 30 receiving yards were second to only Jeudy, who finished the game with 76 yards of his own. Johnson's recent bump in playing time is a result of Courtland Sutton (hamstring), KJ Hamler (hamstring) and Kendall Hinton (hamstring) all missing time, but his usage has not resulted in much fantasy production. Johnson will see a substantial dip in playing time once the Broncos receiving group gets healthier, but even before that happens, the 24-year old wideout should remain far off the fantasy radar when the Broncos visit the Rams in Week 16....
