Steve Johnson: Week 8 Fantasy Outlook

RotoWireContributor October 23, 2013

Johnson looked decent in his return to the field in Week 7 after missing the prior week with a back injury, as he was targeted 13 times and caught six balls for 61 yards. Next up: a New Orleans team that's been tough against the pass this season, presenting problems for rookie QB Thad Lewis and is receivers.
Though the catch rate wasn't good for Johnson against Miami, it's promising that he was thrown to so much and he seemed to make it through the game in good health. He should return to being the primary option in the Buffalo passing game, and though he's a competent starter when healthy, there's not big upside for him in this matchup.
