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 to play outside, in slot (Mon Jul 20, 03:08 PM) - San Diego Chargers WR Stevie Johnson will be used on the outside as well as in the slot this season.

Our View: Johnson is a sleeper for fantasy owners to pick up late in their drafts. He failed to impress during his time with the 49ers, but we think that has more to do with QB Colin Kaepernick. With Eddie Royal moving on to the Bears, Johnson will take over as the Chargers second-best wide receiver behind Keenan Allen. Johnson has a current ADP of WR59 (13.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.
