Ja'Varrius Johnson

2023 Fantasy Outlook
Johnson led the Tigers in receiving last season, but his numbers look paltry due to the incompetent quarterback play at Auburn last season. Johnson led all wide receivers in receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns. Overall, he caught 26 passes for 493 yards and three touchdowns as a junior. Despite limited opportunities, Johnson still flashed his big-play ability, averaging a stout 19.0 yards per catch. That average placed Johnson fifth amongst qualifying receivers in the SEC last season. The quarterback position should be upgraded this year with the transfer of Payton Thorne from Michigan State, who started the last two seasons for the Spartans and tossed a combined 46 touchdowns over that span. Thorne is expected to win the starting job in a competition with Robby Ashford, who largely struggled during his time under center a season ago. In addition, a coaching change to the offensive-minded Hugh Freeze should also pay dividends for Johnson. Freeze’s squads at Liberty averaged over 400 yards of total offense in all four of his seasons with the program. Read Past Outlooks
Joins UCF
May 14, 2024
Johnson committed to UCF via the transfer portal, Hayes Fawcett of On3.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Johnson played the last four seasons with Auburn but hasn't been able to get that true breakout season. The fifth year wideout will look to be a dynamic part of UCF's offense this upcoming season.

Matt Corral should be worth the heavy salary hit Saturday in what figures to be a shootout when he faces a Tulane defense that has allowed 30 points per contest over the first two games.
2022 Fantasy Outlook
Johnson will likely line up opposite Shedrick Jackson as a starter at wide receiver for the Tigers this season. Johnson led the Tigers with 14.4 yards per catch a year ago, so he will operate as the big-play threat and complement to the size and skill-set of the aforementioned Jackson. Johnson totaled just 19 catches as a redshirt freshman last season, but figures to see more targets with the transfer of Kobe Hudson along with the graduation of Demetris Robertson to the NFL. However, more uncertainty awaits under center despite the departure of Bo Nix, so Jackson may not get a lot of help from the quarterback position.
