Bills WR Stevie Johnson is expected to miss most of preseason due to hamstring strain

There are a lot of high-profile names nursing some nicks early on in camp -- Arian Foster, Ben Tate, A.J. Green, DeSean Jackson, Marques Colston, Mike Williams, and, of course, Hakeem Nicks. Unfortunately, Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson @StevieJohnson13 might miss the most practice time of any of those players.
Johnson went to the ground grabbing his left hamstring during Friday's practice. After an MRI, Johnson has been diagnosed with a strained hamstring. It's unknown for how long Johnson will be sidelined, but a source has told Pro Football Talk that "the assumption is he'll miss most of the preseason."

Fantasy Analysis:

If Stevie misses just a few weeks and is back later this month, I wouldn't change my ranking on him. Granted, I am not a big supporter of him in this new Bills offense with two very questionable quarterbacks, but he is still a decent WR4 as long as the strain doesn't carry over into the season. His time off will give rookie WR Robert Woods @robertwoods more opportunities to grow on Kevin Kolb.
