2013 Outlook: Quality Backup

Last updated on Aug-27-2013 by Matt De Lima

Update (8-27): Johnson has proven he's got game and makes for a worthy fantasy option. However, like all receivers, he is on some level only as good as those throwing him the ball. For now that coud be undrafted rookie Jeff Tuel or Matt Leinart (or E.J. Manuel whenever the first-round pick returns from injury). Draft Johnson in the WR30-40 range, but that QB scenario makes him a tricky start early in the season.

Preview - Over the last three seasons, Stevie Johnson has very reliably caught around 80 passes for 1,000 yards and at least a half dozen scores. A turbulent quarterback controversy would not help the 26-year-old's draft stock, yet he provides solid value given his consistency and secure role as the Bills' No. 1 receiver. The only real downside is that he has likely plateaued and fantasy owners may feel that as well. On the other hand, Buffalo will be using a new offense and have a new starting quarterback. This could push Johnson's receiving totals up a bit while also increasing his risk. Defenses keyed on stopping C.J. Spiller should create more open spaces for Johnson's superb route-running. He makes for an excellent WR3 or flex play.
