Charles Johnson is 'most intriguing prospect' among Browns WRs

Everyone should agree that there is a lot of room for opportunity inside the Browns' receiving corps. Miles Austin @MilesAustinIII and Andrew Hawkins @YoungBabyHawk are expected to open the season atop the depth chart, but injuries have been a huge part of their NFL story in recent seasons. No. 3 wideout, Nate Burleson @Nate13Burleson, will turn 33 next month.
Beyond tight end Jordan Cameron, the Browns' passing offense is one big question mark. Perhaps youngster Charles Johnson can provide some answers. The 25-year-old wideout is the team's "most intriguing prospect," according to Tom Reed of
Johnson, a seventh-round pick of the Packers in 2013, stands at 6-foot-2 and blazed a 4.38 40-yard dash at his pro day. He was claimed by the Browns in October, but they found out soon afterward that Johnson had a torn ACL. He didn't participate in OTAs, but head coach Mike Pettine said "it looks pretty good" that Johnson will be healthy by the start of training camp later this week.

Fantasy Analysis:

Put Johnson on dynasty notice. His pure measurables do make him an interesting talent; now we'll have to see if he is more athlete than football player. If he can come back strong from his knee surgery and handle the Browns' offense, he has a good chance to see playing time every week. If Austin and/or Hawkins suffer another injury, Johnson's fantasy stock could really take a leap.
