Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson was upgraded to a full participant in Thursday's practice. Johnson is expected to be ready for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins after being limited on Wednesday.
Johnson was inactive for last week's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. He dealt with a back injury and missed the whole week of practice due to a death in the family. It was the first game he's missed since 2009. Johnson has 20 catches for 254 yards and two touchdowns through five games this season.
Fantasy impact: Johnson has been a middling fantasy option up to this point, but his value could take a hit with Buffalo's quarterback situation a mess. Thaddeus Lewis got the start last week but is hobbled by a foot injury. His backup is Matt Flynn, signed off the street earlier this week. It's a nightmare scenario that makes Bills receivers huge fantasy risks for the time being. Only start Johnson if you're facing a bye-week crunch.
