Patriots signed WR Damaris Johnson.
The ex-Eagle and Texan spent the first three months of the season on the street. He could provide help in the slot, and should immediately slide in on special teams. Even with the Pats majorly banged up at wideout, Johnson won't come into fantasy value. Tue, Dec 1, 2015 03:05:00 PM

Texans waived WR Damaris Johnson and released DT Brandon Deaderick.

Johnson is a diminutive occasional deep threat and return specialist.

Texans re-signed restricted free agent WR Damaris Johnson to a one-year, $1 million contract.

Slot receiver Johnson caught 31 passes for 331 yards with one touchdown for the Texans last season. He also handled nine punt returns and six kickoff returns. The $1 million salary instead of the league minimum suggests the Texans expect Johnson to make the team and stick in a similar role in 2015.

Damaris Johnson caught all three of his targets for 33 yards in the Texans' Week 17 win over the Jaguars.

Claimed off waivers at final cuts, Johnson appeared in all 16 games for the Texans as their No. 3 receiver. It's not a high-volume position in the Houston passing offense, and Johnson finishes the season with a 31-331-1 receiving line. The Texans will likely try to address the position in the offseason. Johnson will be a restricted free agent. He'll likely be non-tendered then brought back at the minimum to compete for a roster spot in training camp.

Damaris Johnson caught four passes for 27 yards in the Texans' Week 16 win over the Ravens.

Johnson was targeted six times as the Texans' No. 3 receiver. He's better suited for a special teams role as the No. 5 receiver on a good team. Johnson is 25.

Damaris Johnson caught two passes for 21 yards in Sunday's Week 15 loss at Indy.

Johnson saw four targets on a day Andre Johnson (concussion) was inactive. The pint-sized, poor-man's Andrew Hawkins is not a legit NFL receiver.

Texans WR Damaris Johnson caught 5-of-8 targets for 21 yards and added a six-yard rushing attempt in Houston's Week 11 win over the Browns.

Johnson has taken over as Houston's relatively lightly-used slot receiver under first-year coach Bill O'Brien. He lacks fantasy value in re-draft leagues.

Texans claimed WR Damaris Johnson off waivers from the Eagles.

The pint-sized 5-foot-8, 175-pound wideout has always lit up practice, but never really gotten a chance to showcase his wares on Sundays. He'll be a gadget player/special teamer in Houston.

Eagles waived/released WR Damaris Johnson, LB Emmanuel Acho, OG Josh Andrews, CB Roc Carmichael, OT Kevin Graf, S Keelan Johnson, LB Josh Kaddu, DT Wade Keliikipi, WR Will Murphy, S Ed Reynolds and DT Damion Square.

Long hyped, Johnson's Eagles career ends with just 21 catches across 27 games. He had a productive preseason, however, posting a 9/90/1 line as a receiver while rushing 12 times for 83 yards and an additional score. He could earn a look on waivers.

The Eagles are reportedly trying to trade WR Damaris Johnson.

They likely hope to get a conditional seventh-round pick for smallish Johnson, although in all likelihood this is the precursor to Johnson's release. Johnson did have a productive preseason, catching nine balls for 90 yards with a TD, and also rushing 12 times for 83 yards with an additional score.

Coach Chip Kelly recently stated in a radio interview that the Eagles don't have a single receiver on their roster under 190 pounds.

They actually have two -- Damaris Johnson and Jeff Maehl -- but neither is expected to make the Eagles' 53. Hailed as a sleeper in some fantasy circles before last year, 175-pound Johnson managed two catches for 14 yards in 13 games. Kelly has emphasized increasing his team's size at wide receiver.
Tue, Jul 29, 2014 12:01:00 AM

The Philadelphia Inquirer doesn't expect WR Damaris Johnson to make the 53-man roster.

Johnson played just 53 offensive snaps for coach Chip Kelly, catching two passes for 14 yards, one year after reeling in 19 balls for 256 yards as an undrafted rookie under Andy Reid. He's no higher than fifth on the receiver depth chart and is competing with veterans Brad Smith and Arrelious Benn.
Tue, Jun 10, 2014 10:11:00 AM

Eagles WR Damaris Johnson has played only 15 offensive snaps this season, and hasn't been targeted once.

Johnson's been strictly a special teamer under rookie coach Chip Kelly, playing behind DeSean Jackson, Riley Cooper, and third/slot receiver Jason Avant.
Mon, Sep 30, 2013 05:25:00 PM

The Philadelphia Inquirer expects second-year WR Damaris Johnson to be a "change of pace player" behind No. 2 wideout Riley Cooper.

Johnson is also the Eagles' primary return man. He's not considered a viable starting candidate due to blocking limitations at 5-foot-8 and 170 pounds. Cooper is all but locked into the first-team offense because he's a proficient run blocker, and new coach Chip Kelly intends to dial up a ton of run plays. Johnson would need a Cooper injury for any chance at a fantasy impact.
Fri, Aug 23, 2013 05:09:00 PM

Through two preseason games, Eagles WR Damaris Johnson has five catches for 29 yards.

He's been used as an underneath weapon, which makes sense because Johnson is only 5-foot-8 and 170 pounds but capable of racking up yards after catch with elite quicks despite 4.52 wheels. Johnson is not considered to be in the running for the Eagles' No. 2 receiver job, where superior run blocker Riley Cooper is the favorite. Johnson is worth a look in return-yardage leagues.
