Stevie Johnson injury update: fantasy status cloudy due to hamstring injury

Stevie Johnson is questionable for Sunday's game between the Bills and the Rams due to a hamstring injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Stevie Johnson is questionable for Sunday's game between the Buffalo Bills and the St. Louis Rams due to a hamstring injury. He was limited in practice Thursday and Friday after missing practice Wednesday. Head coach Chan Gailey said he wanted to see how Johnson was doing Saturday morning before making a final determination.

Johnson was taken to the locker room during last week's win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, but not before catching a third quarter touchdown. The score saved what would have been an abysmal outing. He finished with just two receptions for 18 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Sloppy late season weather in Buffalo is making this a more difficult decision for the Bills than it probably ought to be. Gailey said early in the week that Johnson was expected to play against the Rams, and odds are that will bear out. Be sure to check back before the 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff to be sure if you plan on using Johnson as a WR3 this week, however.
