News: The Vikings activated cornerback Chris Cook on Saturday. Cook was on injured reserve but was designated to return. He missed eight weeks due to a broken arm. The team also activated defensive end George Johnson from the practice squad. Minnesota waived tight end Allen Reisner and guard Mark Asper to make room.
Analysis: Johnson will see some snaps for the Vikings but isn't expected to impact the defense much going forward. He has low-end appeal in all IDP formats.
News: The Bucs promoted defensive end Aaron Morgan from the practice squad Thursday and released defensive end George Johnson.
Analysis: The Bucs basically just swapped out players for defensive line depth. Neither player has Fantasy value.
News: Tampa Bay DL George Johnson was placed on season-ending injured reserve Monday with a knee injury. Johnson left during the Buccaneers' loss to Houston in Week 10 and did not return. Johnson was signed by the team in early October.
Analysis: Johnson collected just two tackles in his brief time with Tampa Bay -- both of them coming in Sunday's game against the Texans. He was not considered a valuable Fantasy option and should be left on waivers in all formats for the remainder of the season.
News: Tampa Bay DE George Johnson suffered a knee injury during the Week 10 loss to the Texans. Johnson left the game and could not return after making two total tackles.
Analysis: Johnson has only been active for four games this season and has recorded two total tackles. He has no Fantasy value at this time in IDP formats, healthy or not.
News: In a roster move that indicates injured DT Gerald McCoy (ankle) is doubtful for Sunday, the Buccaneers cut TE Collin Franklin and signed DE George Johnson.
Analysis: Johnson stood out during the preseason with a team-high three sacks. He is still unlikely to see significant playing time initially, making him a player to avoid in IDP play. Keep him in mind should he find himself in a situation to play regularly.
News: To make room for LB Zach Diles and TE Zack Pianalto, who were signed Monday, the Bucs released CB Dominique "D.J.'' Johnson and DL George Johnson . Both Johnsons played well during the preseason and could be re-signed to the practice squad.
Analysis: The Johnsons played well, but not well enough to stay on the roster. Fantasy owners should ignore both in all formats until further notice.
News: DE George Johnson and LB Tyrone McKenzie have been promoted from the practice squad to the active roster, the Bucs announced Tuesday. The moves comes in conjunction with rookie DT Gerald McCoy (torn biceps) and LB Quincy Black (broken arm) being placed on injured reserve.
Analysis: Johnson signed with Tampa as a rookie free agent out of Rutgers in May and was later released. Johnson rejoined the team prior to training camp, but was released during final cuts. He is nothing more than roster depth and can be ignored in Fantasy.
News: Tampa Bay has signed three players to the practice squad. They are as follows: S Vince Anderson, DE George Johnson and TE Ryan Purvis.
Analysis: None of these players are expected to make much of an impact in 2010. Ignore them in all leagues this year.
News: The Buccaneers have re-signed free agent DL George Johnson.
Analysis: Johnson was signed by the Bucs in May after going undrafted out of Rutgers and then released a couple of weeks ago. He remains unworthy of consideration in Fantasy play.
