Week Thirteen Analysis:
We haven't talked about Stevie Johnson much on Fantasy Victory this season, but his matchup with Atlanta is downright compelling. They've surrendered the third-most scores to the position and are ranked 27th in pass coverage by Pro Football Focus. Johnson sounds to be fully recovered from a recent groin injury, and he should see plenty of looks against a soft secondary, as he averaged more than 10 targets in his last four games at full health.
Everything about Steve Johnson screams ordinary. His name, Steve Johnson, is more likely the name of your accountant than the guy who powers you to fantasy championships. Case in point, Johnson has only recorded the daily double (100 receiving yards and a touchdown) once in his last 38 games. One time in over two and a half years! Whether it's EJ Manuel or Kevin Kolb throwing the ball in Buffalo, Johnson is still the best receiving threat Buffalo has. Without any competition for balls, he has topped 1,000 yards in each of the last three seasons and has 23 touchdowns over that span. Normally, I'd say that he's a matchup play, but inexplicably, he tends to play better against the top pass defenses. In the last three seasons, Johnson has had seven 100-yard games, six of those have come against top-15 pass defenses in the league at the time of the game.
