Found September 24, 2012 on NFL Draft Zone:

This week while starting in place of Jeremy Maclin, rookie Damaris Johnson led the Eagles with 84 yards on five receptions. Johnson’s 11 targets were a team-high. He looked lost at times and wasn’t always on the same page with Michael Vick, but still looked very good. He did flash the post-catch elusiveness one would expect from a punt returner. If Jeremy Maclin (hip) sits out versus the Giants in Week 4, Johnson could be a good pick up in deep fantasy football leagues.

Johnson was signed by the Eagles as an undrafted free agent on April 29, 2012. It was announced on August 31, 2012 that Johnson made the roster. He was expected to be the fifth receiver and has already climbed the charts to become the starter. This could be huge for the youngsters confidence.
