Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson (groin) is listed as probable and will play in the team's Week 13 game against the Atlanta Falcons. Johnson practiced in full all week and is close to fully healthy coming off the team's bye week.
Fantasy Impact: With Johnson back to reasonable health and rookie quarterback E.J. Manuel under center, fantasy owners can once again expect reasonable production. Johnson has averaged about five receptions and 54 yards per game over the last four weeks. He has also hauled in three touchdowns on the year, two of which came in the first two weeks. As the team's top receiving option, Johnson's targets are usually not an issue. With a rookie quarterback, however, the Bills usually do everything within their power to get their rushing game working to their advantage.
Johnson has a favorable match in Week 13 in the Falcons secondary, which has given up its fair share of points to wide receivers. Rookie receiver Marquise Goodwin has factored into the mix in recent weeks, but he isn't yet a significant threat to Johnson. He is a solid WR3 play.
