Steve Johnson No Longer A Sleeper, Has Three TD Receptions For Bills

Steve Johnson continues to prove every fantasy owner wrong for not drafting him as he scored his second and third touchdowns of the game for the Buffalo Bills. Johnson has caught 7 passes from Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick and on 3 of them he found his way into the endzone. So  far Johnson's 7 catches have resulted in 137 yards for the wide receiver.

Fitzpatrick himself has put up numbers, albeit as he rebounded from a poor start to the game versus a rather inconsistent Cincinnati Bengals secondary and defense. Beginning the game with little yards and two interceptions, Fitzpatrick has thrown for fourth touchdowns (three of them to Johnson). For the day Fitzpatrick is 21/34 for 316 yards, the 4 touchdowns and 3 interceptions. He has also used his legs once to gain 11 yards.

Cedric Benson recovered from his fumble to make his way over 100 yards rushing (24 rushing attempts for 116 yards and a touchdown) and also has 2 catches for 16 yards for the Bengals.
