According to The Athletic’s Daniel Popper, the Chargers wanted to slow-roll Johnston into the offense this season – something that we saw clearly through the first three weeks of the season. With Mike Williams done for the year, though, Popper has suggested that Johnston could be in line to take on more downfield work in the offense. Any upgrade in usage would be a welcome development for those who took Johnston in dynasty drafts or held onto him in redraft leagues, as he’s seen no more than 38% of snaps in any game this season. He’s an intriguing waiver wire pickup for this week, but for the time being, his ceiling will be limited playing behind Josh Palmer.
