Stevie Johnson's production has picked up as the season has wore on.
The Buffalo Bills charismatic wide receiver comes in as the fifth best player midway through the team's 2012 season.
Stevie Johnson, coming off of back-to-back 1,000 yard seasons, started the year slowly.
Through seven games, Johnson has 32 receptions, 387 yards receiving, and four touchdowns. He is ranked first on the team in receptions and yards. He is also tied for first in touchdowns with tight end Scott Chandler.
While Johnson's stats don't jump off of the page, his production is improving. In his last three games against San Francisco, Arizona, and Tennessee, Johnson pulled in 17 receptions for 192 yards and one touchdown.
Johnson still needs to improve his current pace if he wants to eclipse 1,000 yards receiving in three consecutive seasons. That said, Johnson has done a good job considering the fact that his quarterback, Ryan Fitzpatrick, has been erratic for much of the season.
