Charles Johnson looking like the go-to guy

by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/15/14) Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater now has back-to-back 300-yard games, which doesn't mean as much for his Fantasy value as it does wide receiver Charles Johnson's. He has emerged as Bridgewater's go-to guy in recent weeks, averaging 71.0 yards over his last five games. And the targets have been pretty consistent for him as well. He had a four-target game in there, but otherwise, he's gotten at least seven every time.

Now, if Bridgewater regresses to 150 yards with a tough matchup Week 16 at Miami, it won't matter who's catching the ball, but at least in deeper leagues, Johnson is worth a look with the strides he and his quarterback have made together.

For more major takeaways from Week 15, be sure to check out my latest post to the Fantasy Football Today blog.

Vikings' Charles Johnson finishes with 72 yards

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/14/14) Vikings wideout Charles Johnson gained 72 yards Week 15 against the Lions.

Johnson led the way for Minnesota receivers. He tied for the team-lead with seven targets, coming down with five catches. Johnson was able to show some big-play ability, hauling in a 40 yard pass from Teddy Bridgewater in the second quarter. 

Johnson will take on the Dolphins Week 16.

Vikings' Charles Johnson amasses more than 100 receiving yards

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/7/14) Vikings wideout Charles Johnson had his best game of the season to help the Vikings defeat the Jets 30-24 Sunday.

Johnson finished with four receptions for 103 yards on eight targets. It was the first time Johnson surpassed more than 100 receiving yards in a game this season.

The majority of Johnson’s receiving yards came in the first quarter when Johnson connected with Teddy Bridgewater for a 56-yard touchdown.

The Vikings will play at Detroit Week 15.

Charles Johnson emerging in Vikings offense

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/23/14) Through the first 10 weeks of the season, the Vikings rarely used second-year receiver Charles Johnson , however he put together his second solid game in a row in Week 12's 24-21 loss the Packers.

Coming off a six-catch, 87-yard performance, Johnson was once a again a huge part of the team's plans Sunday. Johnson was targeted a team-high 11 times in the game, and though he only caught three of those passes, he led the team with 52 yards receiving. Johnson also hauled in his first career touchdown, a 22-yard pass in the second quarter, giving him his first career double-digit Fantasy scoring day.

Johnson is a pretty unheralded player, so his recent breakout comes as a huge surprise. However, with Cordarrelle Patterson's inability to step up all season long, he is taking advantage of the opportunity given to him. He is at least worth a look on waivers in deeper leagues, if you need help at receiver, though it would be awfully tough to rely on him as a starter. 

Vikings get offensive contributions in OT win

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/26/14) The Vikings got several offensive contributions in their 19-13 overtime win at Tampa Bay. Among them, running back Matt Asiata caught four of five targets for 26 yards and rushed four times for 1 yard.

Wideout Charles Johnson caught two passes for 18 yards, and receiver Jarius Wright made two catches for 13 yards. They'll all face the Redskins in Week 9.
