Stevie Johnson gives fantasy owners first touchdown since Week 2

Chris Graythen

The Bills wide receiver found the end zone for the first time in a while. We break down the fantasy implications.

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson had his best game since Week 2 Sunday. The sixth-year player caught his first touchdown since then, and his third of the season, as the team lost to the New Orleans Saints 35-17.

Johnson caught seven of his 11 targets for 72 yards, including a 13-yard touchdown in the second quarter that tied the game at seven. Tight end Scott Chandler had the same receiving total as Johnson -- seven catches, 11 targets, 72 yards. Robert Woods, who had started developing as a viable option for Buffalo a few weeks ago, had his third straight awful game, catching only one pass for seven yards.

Fantasy impact: As long as Thaddeus Lewis (or, if Lewis keeps getting beaten up like he did Sunday, Jeff Tuel) is starting for Buffalo, it will be hard for any receiver to have really high value in Buffalo.

That said, Stevie Johnson is still obviously the receiver to own among the Bills' options. He's a perfectly fine option for a WR3 or flex.
