Stevie Johnson questionable but expects to play: Fantasy implications

Tom Szczerbowski

Stevie Johnson will be listed as questionable for Week 10, but he insists that he will play. We break down the fantasy implications.

Buffalo Bills WR Stevie Johnson (thigh) will be listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the New England Patriots, reports Joe Buscaglia of WGR 550. Despite the listing, Johnson says there is "no doubt" he will play this week. Johnson suffered a deep thigh bruise in last week's game that has limited him in practice.

Johnson has 35 catches for 416 yards and four TDs on the season.

Fantasy Implications: Doesn't sound like it will be anything too serious if Johnson was able to practice this week. Thigh bruise pain tends to go away once the legs are warmed up and adrenaline kicks in.

Johnson has cooled down after scoring in three straight games at the start of the season, but he remains a solid fantasy starter going forward.
