Fantasy Football Possible Bad Team Sleeper Alert: Steve Johnson

One common weakness with drafting and roster building in fantasy football is neglecting players on teams performing poorly as a collective. While being surrounded by a poor supporting cast can adversely affect a player's output in many occasions, it also allows up-and-coming contributors to fly under the radar.

Bills receiver Steve Johnson could be the victim of this. While Johnson was hurt in the perception department by being demoted from the no. 2 receiver on the team to a slot option, he has excelled in his new role, catching four touchdowns over the past three weeks, including two this past Sunday in a loss to Jacksonville.

While it's possible he's simply been in the right place several times late in scoring drives over the last month - his yardage totals aren't particularly high - it can't hurt to tale on someone favored in the end zone, be it for a middling offense or not, especially in a deep league that carries multiple flex options or more than two receivers.
