Last week against Atlanta, Johnson scored once and caught five passes for 115 yards. It was his third consecutive game with more than 100 receiving yards.
Johnson entered this week with 41 catches and 679 yards to go with his ten scores. He averages 97 yards per game. Fake Teams, SB Nation's fantasy site, has Johnson ranked as their top receiver for week 8.
