2014 Week 1 vs WAS (3 / 1 / 1 / 0 rec)

Many eyebrows were raised when newly acquired slot receiver Damaris Johnson was active on Sunday over a healthy Devier Posey. Johnson, who was claimed off waivers after being a victim of the last cuts in Philadelphia, was not only the primary punt returner but also played frequently in the slot. Johnson was the only receiver targeted besides Johnson and Hopkins, and the coaching staff seemed to design a play or two specifically for him. Johnson is nowhere near fantasy relevant yet, but he might merit watching in deeper PPR leagues, especially those that award points for special teams returns. Johnson showed impressive open field ability on the punt returns he had on Sunday, although unfortunately many were called back due to penalty. Given O'Brien's history with the Patriots, an offense known for valuing slot receivers, it will be interesting to see what develops once Johnson is given time to learn the scheme.
