Buffalo Bills wide receiver Steve Johnson was a non-factor versus the 49ers on Sunday. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Steve Johnson was pretty irrelevant in Week 5. Johnson and the Bills went on the road to face the fierce 49ers defense. The unit held him to six catches for only 39 yards all day. The Buffalo offense struggled mightily as a whole this past week.

Fantasy Analysis: Steve Johnson is a must-start in leagues. This outing was just a hiccup when it comes to his numbers. The 49ers have a very good defense, so the low numbers for Johnson on Sunday are not terribly surprising. He is the Bills' No. 1 receiver, on a team that likes to throw the ball. Johnson should also put up big numbers against his divisional opponents in the AFC East. If you own him, continue to give Johnson the nod week-to-week.
