Steve Johnson is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets, but is expected to play. We break down the fantasy implications.

Stevie Johnson is questionable for Sunday's game between the Buffalo Bills and the New York Jets. Johnson has been hindered by a nagging groin injury throughout preseason, and was held out of practice Thursday before returning in a limited fashion Friday. Despite the designation, Johnson is expected to be in the starting lineup at kickoff.

Fantasy Analysis: Johnson draws a tough matchup for the season opener, going up against Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis. Johnson performed well against him last season, however, racking up a combined 11 catches for 159 yards and a touchdown in two meetings. It's clear that Johnson isn't quite 100 percent, however, so beware there is certainly high risk involved.
