Stevie Johnson no longer on Bills' injury report: Fantasy status safe for Thursday

Jim Rogash

Stevie Johnson was not listed on the Bills' injury report Tuesday after being listed as questionable heading into Week 10 with a thigh injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Stevie Johnson was not listed on the Tuesday injury report for the Buffalo Bills after being listed as questionable with a thigh injury heading into his Week 10 matchup against the New England Patriots. He will likely play Thursday when the Bills host the Miami Dolphins.

Johnson still managed to catch six of nine targets for a season-high 86 yards against the Patriots. He is not expected to be limited in any way against the Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson has just one touchdown catch in his last six games after catching one in each of his first three outings of the season. He hasn't made up for the lack of scoring with much in the way of receptions or yardage, so it's safe to conclude that Johnson is more of a Flex/WR3 option at this point.

That said, Johnson has a good matchup Thursday if you do need to stick him in your starting lineup. The Dolphins have given up four touchdown passes to zero interceptions over consecutive losses to the Indianapolis Colts and the Tennessee Titans, and Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has made a habit out of lighting up bad secondaries.
