2015 Outlook: Quality Backup

Last updated on Nov-18-2015 by Shawn Childs


UPDATE (11/18): Johnson was expected to be a breakout star this season. He couldn't have been any worse. The Fantasy bust has only caught nine passes for 127 yards for the entire season. He has maxed out at 35 yards and his season high for receptions and targets is three. Only twice has he caught more than one pass in a game. There is no reason he should be on any Fantasy rosters.

Johnson was the WR rewarded the most by the failure of Patterson in 2014. Over the last seven games of the 2014 season, Charles tallied 25 catches for 415 yards and two TDs. His catch rate was 52.5 percent, which is a strike for me. His best game was against the Jets in week 14 (4/103 and one TD). Johnson went to a small school (Grand Valley State) where he caught 128 passes for 2229 yards and 31 TDs over two seasons. He has great speed (4.4 forty) and enough size (6'2' and 215 lbs.) to be valuable around the goal line. Johnson's resume is short, but his talent should command your attention if he does win the WR2 job in Minnesota. His ADP (92) is relatively high considering his career path. I would have a tough time pulling the trigger on his name as my 4th Fantasy WR as he could lose his job. I see multiple WRs with more talent and better resumes being selected after him in the early draft season.

Minnesota Vikings WR Charles Johnson

SCOUT Fantasy: Charles Johnson had a great showing last year, but with Mike Wallace in the fold, will those two guys be on the field for basically every play?

Yotter: Yes. Fans seem to think that Cordarrelle Patterson has a chance to get back into the starting rotation, but I don't see that happening this season. Johnson proved to be consistent and productive when given the chance and I don't see him giving that back. The third receiver will be the biggest question mark. Sometimes it will be Jarius Wright. Sometimes it will be Patterson and then a mix of Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen. If I had to bet, I'd say Wright has more of an impact on offense than Patterson.

8.02 Team Rozek - Johnson was productive last year and now has Wallace to take the primary coverage. I'm hoping Bridgewater improves in year 2 and Johnson will benefit. (Comments Added Mon Aug 3 11:24:29 p.m. ET 2015)
