Summary

Steve Johnson had three 1,000-yard seasons with the Bills before taking on a role as a part-time player with the 49ers last season. Although Johnson's 35 catches for 435 yards and 3 touchdowns in 2014 don't add up to impressive fantasy totals, his production was rather efficient on a per-route basis. The Chargers will give him a chance to compete for a starting role opposite Keenan Allen. He'll battle Malcom Floyd for that honor, but however the pecking order ends up, he'll get plenty of playing time in the Chargers' 3-WR base offense. Johnson is a smooth route-runner who can play from the slot or on the perimeter, and has some upside potential as a late-round fantasy sleeper. (May 16)

Chargers | Stevie Johnson has chemistry with QB (Mon Jun 29, 01:16 PM) - San Diego Chargers WR Stevie Johnson showed good chemistry with QB Philip Rivers during offseason workouts.

Our View: All reports seem to indicate that Johnson is over the moon about his connection with Rivers. With Eddie Royal gone to the Bears, Johnson is set to take over as the team's WR3 behind Keenan Allen and Malcom Floyd. He's a great late-round flier to add as a WR6 for your fantasy squad.
