It was the second straight week that Johnson caught a touchdown pass, and this one came in the final seconds of the game to ultimately put the Bills on top. Johnson was efficient in making the most of his opportunities, converting eight of his 10 targets for catches.
Fantasy Spin: So much for posting underwhelming numbers with a rookie quarterback under center. Johnson has asserted himself as E.J. Manuel's favorite target, and rebounded nicely this week after having a tough Week One matchup versus the Patriots and Aqib Talib. Head coach Doug Marrone and Offensive Coordinator Nate Hackett lined Johnson up in the slot as well as split wide, and maximized his ability to make plays with the ball in his hands. Expect more of that to come as the season goes on, especially as Manuel continues to progress.
Johnson has a difficult matchup in Week Three versus the Jets, as he projects to have Antonio Cromartie lined up across from him. Cromartie was a true shut-down corner in 2012, but Johnson has shown he has the talent to overcome these kinds of matchups based on his past success versus corners like Darrelle Revis. Johnson is a solid WR3 option with WR2 upside for that game.
