Arizona Cardinals WR KeeSean Johnson led his team's receiving corps with 73 offensive snaps played against the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday, Oct. 6.
Huddle Up: Johnson benefited from the absences of Christian Kirk and Damiere Byrd, but with both at risk of missing another game, Johnson becomes an interesting option against the porous Atlanta Falcons defense. He can be used as a flex option if in need of a bye-week replacement.

Arizona Cardinals WR KeeSean Johnson registered three receptions for 22 yards on seven targets in Week 5 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: The Bengals rookie saw more targets with Christian Kirk sidelined, but his productions wasn't necessarily increased. He remains nothing more than a WR6 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams and an option in long-term keeper formats. The Cardinals host the Falcons in Week 6.

Arizona Cardinals WR KeeSean Johnson has upside in Week 5 against the Cincinnati Bengals with WR Christian Kirk (ankle) and WR Damiere Byrd (hamstring) likely out.
Huddle Up: Johnson will likely serve as the pseudo WR2 in the Cards offense. He has done close to nothing since a promising 10-target Week 1, but if you're covering bye weeks or injuries, give him some flex consideration from the waiver wire.

Arizona Cardinals WR KeeSean Johnson posted five receptions for 46 yards on 10 targets in Week 1 against the Detroit Lions.
Huddle Up: The rookie out of Fresno State did a good job, and he was the only one of the three drafted rookies to make a splash. Of course, Hakeem Butler did not even play, as he is done for the season, but Andy Isabella was not targeted once, and he was mostly in on special teams. Johnson has some upside, but he is mostly a WR6 in standard play at this point.

Arizona Cardinals WR KeeSean Johnson caught seven passes for 85 yards in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 24.
Huddle Up: Johnson has had a good training camp and has a chance to earn a decent role in the passing game this season. He may not be an option during fantasy drafts but could be a waiver wire option during the season if he plays well.

Arizona Cardinals WR KeeSean Johnson was praised for his route running by Cardinals general manager Steve Keim. 'The one thing that jumped out at me about this young man as I watched the tape, he's one of the better natural route runners I saw in this draft process,' Keim said. 'I'm talking about a guy who can drop his weight, who's really good getting in and out of routes, is extremely smooth. His positional versatility and his playmaking ability jumped off the tape for us.'

The New Orleans Saints selected Colorado State QB Garrett Grayson in Round 3 of the NFL Draft (No. 75 overall) Friday, May 1.
Huddle Up: Grayson, who became the third QB selected, becomes the heir apparent to Drew Brees as the Saints went with the fast-rising Colorado State QB instead of selecting Bryce Petty as rumored. That said, don't expect to hear much of Grayson for another couple of years as the 36-year-old Brees is still going strong.

Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (shoulder) said he won't know until just before kickoff Sunday, Oct. 19, if he'll play in Week 7 against the Detroit Lions. "I think (coach) Sean (Payton) might try to see how I'm doing on Sunday and maybe work me before the game to see where I'm at," said Graham, who was limited Friday and listed as questionable. "As of right now I don't know." Head coach Sean Payton would not discuss whether Graham could be limited if he plays Sunday.
Huddle Up: Graham owners will need to check the Huddle's Game-Day Inactives, Injuries & Weather report Sunday morning and also have a backup plan firmly in at the ready as well. Ben Watson and Josh Hill will get the TE looks if Graham can't go.

New Orleans Saints QB Ryan W. Griffin was placed on no-recall waivers Tuesday, Sept. 2.
Huddle Up: Griffin had a strong preseason (48-of-76, 530 yards, 3 TDs, 1 INT) but the Saints are going with the more experienced Luke McCown as Drew Brees' backup.
