Stevie Johnson Visits Revis Island, Comes Out Okay For Fantasy Owners

Stevie Johnson had an okay day in Week 1. We break down the fantasy implications.

Buffalo Bills WR Stevie Johnson had four catches in 10 targets, for 55 yards and a touchdown against Darrelle Revis and the New York Jets. The Bills were routed 48-28.

Fantasy Impact: The 40% catch rate is about expected when going up against Revis, but things opened up when he left the game with a head injury, and Johnson hauled in a 29-yard TD in 4th quarter garbage time. With Johnson also nursing a groin injury that kept him limited in practice last week, this is probably the best performance fantasy owners could have hoped for. The Bills take on the Kansas City Chiefs next week, where he should be a much better play.
