Former Falcons WR Darius Johnson was arrested for DUI on Thursday.
Johnson was released by the Falcons on Friday, but the team refused to say if the arrest played any part. "I’m not going to comment on the reason that Darius was released," coach Mike Smith said. "We never do. There was a transaction that we put in today and he is no longer a member of our team." A diminutive, speed-deficient prospect, Johnson may have trouble latching on elsewhere.

Falcons waived WR Darius Johnson.

Johnson caught 22 passes for Atlanta in 2013, but managed under 10.0 yards per reception and is a small, speed-deficient prospect at 23 years old. UDFA Bernard Reedy now has improved odds to make the Falcons' 53.
Fri, Jul 25, 2014 12:58:00 PM

Darius Johnson ran as a starter with Julio Jones and Roddy White absent from Wednesday's OTAs.

Johnson will battle Drew Davis for No. 4 receiver duties throughout the offseason. It's a low-upside job, even if Jones, White or Harry Douglas misses time at any point. Johnson, undersized and lacking separation speed, had just 22 catches for 210 yards and one touchdown last year despite plenty of opportunity.
Thu, May 29, 2014 09:27:00 AM

Darius Johnson caught one pass for four yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Panthers.

An undrafted rookie out of SMU, Johnson finishes the season with 22 catches for 210 yards and one touchdown. He'll fight for a spot as the No. 4 or 5 wideout on the team at next year's training camp.
Sun, Dec 29, 2013 05:48:00 PM

Darius Johnson (ankle) is listed as questionable for Week 17.

Johnson practiced on a limited basis this week and should return after missing just one game. He'll be the No. 3 receiver behind Roddy White and Harry Douglas if active for Sunday's regular season finale against the Panthers.
Sat, Dec 28, 2013 02:10:00 PM

Darius Johnson (ankle, out) remained sidelined at Saturday's practice.

Johnson has a high-ankle sprain and isn't going to play Monday night in San Francisco. He's a candidate to be placed on season-ending injured reserve.
Sat, Dec 21, 2013 11:50:00 AM

Darius Johnson (high-ankle sprain) remained out of Falcons practice Thursday.

Atlanta's No. 3 receiver won't be active for Monday's game against the 49ers. Drew Davis should pick up Johnson's targets. Small and not particularly speedy, Johnson isn't a must-hold in Dynasty leagues.
Thu, Dec 19, 2013 02:11:00 PM

Darius Johnson suffered a high-ankle sprain last week against the Redskins and is not practicing Wednesday.

With two weeks left in the season, Johnson may be headed for injured reserve. High-ankle sprains are typically multi-week injuries. Johnson has been operating as Atlanta's No. 3 receiver. Drew Davis will fill that role.
Wed, Dec 18, 2013 01:16:00 PM

Darius Johnson caught three passes for 19 yards in Week 15 versus the Redskins.

Johnson was targeted four times. He's the No. 3 receiver but is no higher than the fourth or fifth option in the passing game. His fantasy value is minimal.
Sun, Dec 15, 2013 07:15:00 PM

Falcons WR Darius Johnson was held without a catch in Atlanta's Week 14 loss to Green Bay.

Johnson was on the field for a lot of plays -- he's currently Atlanta's No. 3 receiver -- but Roddy White (eight catches) was the apple of Matt Ryan's eye in this one. Johnson has very little re-draft or Dynasty league value.
Sun, Dec 8, 2013 04:30:00 PM

Darius Johnson caught six passes for 67 yards in Atlanta's Week 12 loss to the Saints.

Five of Johnson's catches came before halftime, where the Falcons made it their mission to pick on Saints fill-in CB Corey White. Johnson kept drawing targets after the break, but killed his good night with a brutal third-down drop and a soft fumble. He wasn't targeted in the game's final 13 minutes. Johnson is ahead of Drew Davis on the depth chart, but little more than a WR5 for fantasy purposes.
Fri, Nov 22, 2013 12:04:00 AM

Darius Johnson caught one pass for a 12-yard touchdown in Sunday's Week 10 loss to Seattle.

Johnson's snaps were extremely limited as Roddy White returned, but he did manage to grab his first NFL touchdown. There's nothing to see here.
Sun, Nov 10, 2013 05:29:00 PM

Darius Johnson caught one pass for 10 yards in Atlanta's Week 9 loss to the Panthers.

The Falcons' fill-in No. 3 receiver drew only two targets. With Roddy White (hamstring, ankle) nearing a return, Johnson's upside is nil.
Sun, Nov 3, 2013 05:29:00 PM

Darius Johnson caught four passes for 40 yards in Sunday's Week 8 loss at Arizona.

Johnson, who was just promoted off the practice squad before Week 7, saw nine targets. Most of them came on short screens and sideline outs as he was the No. 3 receiver behind Harry Douglas and Drew Davis. Even if Roddy White remains sidelined, there's no reason for an add here.
Sun, Oct 27, 2013 08:37:00 PM

Darius Johnson had two catches for 24 yards in Week 7 against the Bucs.

He was targeted three times in the passing game. Johnson was just promoted from the practice squad this week and immediately inserted into four-wide sets. He doesn't have any fantasy value and will likely be waived when Roddy White (hamstring, ankle) is healthy enough to return.
