Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson was held up at practice with a groin injury. We discuss the fantasy implications.

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Steve Johnson was limited in practice this week after taking a "hard fall." Johnson has been battling a minor groin injury, and it's unclear if it is related. Johnson's progress should be monitored this week, although he should be good to go in Week 1.

Fantasy Analysis: Johnson has been a solid receiver for the Bills and was recently rewarded with a big-time contract to remain with the team. Johnson's injury is not believed to keep him out this weekend, making Johnson a must-start on game day. Johnson will be facing off against the Jets and his rival, Darrelle Revis in Week 1. No matter, because Johnson has proven to be efficient, even against Revis.
