Stevie Johnson caught just three passes for 39 yards despite being targeted nine times during Saturday's preseason game between the Buffalo Bills and the Pittsburgh Steelers. Ryan Fitzpatrick struggled throwing the ball, going 7-for-18 for 89 yards.
Analysis: Johnson should continue to see a ton of targets during the season. The Bills like to dink and dunk a lot, and Johnson has been surprisingly effective in the red zone as well. His ceiling remains low as long as Fitzpatrick continues to put up middling numbers, however. At this point, it'd be hard to recommend Fitzpatrick as anything other than an emergency waiver pickup in case your starter is out or has a bad matchup. Johnson should still be considered a solid WR2 on the assumption that Fitzpatrick puts the ball in his vicinity better than he did Saturday.
