  Giants | Johnny Holton activated    Sat Sep 26, 04:23 PM

New York Giants WR Johnny Holton was activated from the practice squad Saturday, Sept. 26.

Footballguys view: Holton is a speedy prospect who can take the top off the defense. He can also work on special teams as a return man. We'll monitor him but only in crazy deep dynasty formats.

  Giants | NYG fills out practice squad    Sun Sep 6, 05:38 PM

Free-agent QB Cooper Rush, WR Johnny Holton, WR Alex Bachman, WR Derrick Dillon, WR Austin Mack, WR Binjimen Victor, OL Tyler Haycraft, OT Kyle Murphy, DT Niko Lalos, CB Chris Williamson, CB Jarren Williams, LS Carson Tinker and RB Sandro Platzgummer were signed to the New York Giants practice squad Sunday, Sept. 6.

Footballguys view: The Giants have a collection of receivers here to watch in crazy deep leagues. They've also kept around Rush as a developmental quarterback. There were supporters of Rush in the Cowboys organization so perhaps he can work his way onto the active roster with the Giants.

  49ers | San Fran taking a look at free-agent WRs    Tue Aug 25, 02:24 PM

Free-agent WRs Johnny Holton (Steelers), Kevin White (Cardinals), River Cracraft (Eagles) and Justin Hardy (Falcons) are among the receivers working out for the San Francisco 49ers on Tuesday, Aug. 25.

Footballguys view: This story is dated for Tuesday but it could have been dated anytime over the last month or so. The 49ers have a banged up WR corps and are looking for help at the position. We'll see if any of these guys sign on to compete for a roster spot.

  Steelers | Pittsburgh's injury report for Week 15    Fri Dec 13, 02:40 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) and TE Vance McDonald (concussion) did not practice Friday, Dec. 13, and have been ruled out for Week 15 against the Buffalo Bills. RB James Conner (shoulder) practiced in full all week and is listed as questionable. RB Jaylen Samuels (groin), OT Alejandro Villanueva (non-injury), OG David DeCastro (non-injury), LB Mark Barron (non-injury), OG Ramon Foster (non-injury), WR Johnny Holton (illness) and C Maurkice Pouncey (non-injury) were full participants at practice Friday and no longer appear on the injury report.

Footballguys view: The Steelers will be thin at tight end this week without McDonald. Conner being questionable takes some shine off of him as a play this week. He might not come back to a full workload if he does go against the Bills.

  Steelers | Pittsburgh adding Johnny Holton    Mon May 13, 06:44 PM

Free-agent WR Johnny Holton (Raiders) agreed to terms with the Pittsburgh Steelers Monday, May 13, according to a source. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Holton has plenty of speed and flashed a bit (mostly against the Broncos) in 2017. He spent last year on practice squads and was only targeted one time in one game. The Steelers have revamped their WR corps and Holton is going to be a long-shot to make the 53-man roster.

Free-agent WR Johnny Holton (Raiders) was re-signed to the Oakland Raiders' practice squad Tuesday, Sept. 11. S Terrell Sinkfield was released from the practice squad in a corresponding move.

Footballguys view: The Raiders are looking for more bodies at the WR position. Holton has speed to burn and can get down the field in a hurry. We'll see if he can end up getting a shot on the 53-man roster.

  Raiders | Keon Hatcher has huge game    Fri Aug 31, 01:56 AM

Oakland Raiders WR Keon Hatcher caught eight passes for 128 yards and three touchdowns against the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday, Aug. 30. Hatcher could challenge WR Johnny Holton for a spot on the 53-man roster, in the opinion of ESPN's Paul Gutierrez.

Footballguys view: Holton has great straight-line speed and could get added elsewhere if Hatcher played himself into a roster spot. Hatcher might have a good chance of making it through the practice squad if the Raiders choose Holton.
