Stevie Johnson practicing Friday, fantasy stock improving

Matthew Stockman

Stevie Johnson is practicing on Friday as his status for Week 14 is looking better. We break down the fantasy implications.

Buffalo Bills WR Stevie Johnson (hamstring) is indeed practicing on Friday, reports Joe Buscaglia of WGR 550. Johnson sat out on Wednesday and was limited Thursday after his hamstring tightened up in Week 13. He has insisted all week that he will play, and so far it looks like he'll be right.

Johnson has 55 catches for 705 yards and five TDs on the year.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson played all 16 games last year on a painful groin injury, so his pain tolerance is higher than most. He should be ready to go on Sunday against the Rams.

With heavy rain in the forecast again, the Bills could double down on the run game once again, so fantasy owners should only pencil Johnson in as a WR3, with WR2 upside.
