Bills likely to keep Stevie Johnson


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2014) Despite the acquisition of Mike Williams from Tampa Bay, the Bills are expected to retain receiver Steve Johnson, who carries an $8.5 million cap hit, reports ESPN.com. Johnson, Williams and Robert Woods, a second-round pick last year, would be Buffalo's top three wideouts.


Marrone: Bills still committed to Steve Johnson


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/21/2014) Bills coach Doug Marrone said the team remains committed to receiver Steve Johnson, reports the Buffalo News.

"I've been communicating with Stevie about something to that effect," Marrone said. "I told Stevie, 'Hey, listen. I'm excited about getting started with you. I'm excited about you coming in and getting healthy and get this team going ... and whatever else you're hearing, it's not coming from me.'"

Johnson led the Bills with 52 receptions, but failed to gain 1,000 yards for the first time in four seasons. He was bothered by back, hamstring and hip injuries and missed a game because of them.

Report: Steve Johnson might miss game due to family tragedy


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2013) Rhonda Lewis, the mother of Bills receiver Steve Johnson, died unexpectedly Saturday at her Northern California home at the age of 48, reports the Buffalo News. Bills coach Doug Marrone might tell Johnson to skip the Week 16 home game vs. Miami so he can mourn with his family in California, according to the paper.

"We know that Stevie's going through a personal tragedy," Marrone told the paper. "He's been great as far as his communication. Whether it affects practice or the team, we'll go ahead and report it, but we don't have anything to report on it."


Steve Johnson catches one ball Week 15


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Bills WR Steve Johnson did not play a big role in the team's win Week 15.

Steve Johnson facing strong matchup Week 15


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2013) Bills wide receiver Steve Johnson is facing a strong matchup Week 15 against the Jaguars.

Jacksonville has struggled to cover opposing wide receivers this season, allowing them to average 23.38 Fantasy points per game. Through 13 games, the team has allowed 25 passing touchdowns. While the team has been playing better as of late, they have allowed 300+ passing yards. 

Johnson benefited from quarterback EJ Manuel's return Week 14. Though he was unable to score, Johnson was clearly Manuel's go-to receiver. Johnson hasn't been a consistent target this season, however, possibly due to inconsistent quarterback play. He's only gone over 100 receiving yards once. The matchup might be strong, but Johnson lacks the upside needed to be a Fantasy start Week 15. 


Steve Johnson solid, unspectacular in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Bills wide receiver Steve Johnson had another decent game in Week 14 against the Buccaneers, in a 27-6 loss.

Johnson was targeted 11 times in the game, but hauled in just five of those receptions as quarterback EJ Manuel struggled all game long. He still led the team with 67 yards on those five catches, his best total in four games.

Johnson is likely to see his streak of three straight 1,000-yard seasons come to an end this season, as he enters Week 15 against the Jaguars with 593 yards and three games remaining. 


Week 14 could be time to bench Steve Johnson


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/4/2013) Bills wide receiver Steve Johnson is closing in on a career milestone, needing just five receptions to reach 300 in his career. It's very possible Johnson reaches that plateau Week 14 at Tampa Bay.

Though, it might not be easy, especially if Johnson is covered most of the day by Bucs cornerback Darrelle Revis. Wide receivers have fared well against Tampa Bay, averaging 23.5 Fantasy points per week, but No. 1 receivers have been hit or miss. Players like Calvin Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald and DeSean Jackson have had decent performances against Revis, but he's shut down the likes of Marques Colston, Steve Smith, Golden Tate and Mike Wallace.

Johnson got off to a good start this season, but his production for most of the year hasn't been worth writing home about. He's averaging just 41.4 receiving yards in his last seven games and has just one touchdown in his last eight games. Johnson is at best a No. 3 Fantasy receiver or flex option Week 14.


Steve Johnson held in check Week 13


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Bills wide receiver Steve Johnson was held in check Week 13 against the Falcons.

Johnson caught five passes for 55 yards. He was targeted a team-high eight times. Johnson was involved in a key play at the end of regulation. After catching a 14 yard pass, Johnson lost a fumble, ending the team's comeback bid. Johnson will look for a better showing Week 14 against the Buccaneers. 


Stevie Johnson ready to go


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Bills wide receiver Steve Johnson is active Week 13 against the Falcons.

Johnson is dealing with a groin injury, but came into the game listed as probable. He was able to practice in full all week despite the injury.


Bills healthy for game against Falcons


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/29/2013) The Bills are in excellent shape as they prepare for their Sunday game against Atlanta. Defensive tackle Kyle Williams (back), who is questionable, is the lone player listed on their injury report that is not probable.

Listed as probable are wide receivers Robert Woods (ankle) and Steve Johnson (groin) and cornerback Nickell Robey (ankle).


Two Bills wideouts should be set for Week 13 game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/27/2013) Injuries to Bills wide receivers Steve Johnson (groin) and Robert Woods (ankle) prevented neither from practicing on Wednesday. Both should be ready to roll Sunday against visiting Atlanta.

Steve Johnson ready for strong matchup Week 13


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/27/2013) Bills wide receiver Steve Johnson is looking at a good matchup Week 13 against the Falcons.

Atlanta hasn't been able to defend opposing wideouts, allowing them to score 24.84 Fantasy points per game. Through 11 games, the team has allowed 23 passing touchdowns. They have allowed six receivers to post 100 yard games this year.

Johnson is coming off an injury, but is expected to be back Week 13. He showed a strong rapport with EJ Manuel early in the year, scoring two touchdowns and a two-point conversion in the team's first three games. In the other three games Johnson has played with Manuel, he only has six catches. Johnson isn't a sure bet to breakout, but both he and Manuel are facing one of the worst pass defenses in the league. 


Robert Woods, Steve Johnson expected to play Week 13


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/25/2013) Bills coach Doug Marrone is expecting wide receivers Steve Johnson (groin) and Robert Woods (ankle) to return to the lineup Week 13 vs. Atlanta. Both players sat out before the bye in Week 11.

"Everybody practiced today, so we're at full strength," Marrone said Monday, per ESPN. "We don't expect anyone not to be available for us."


Injured Bills WRs return to practice Monday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/25/2013) Bills wide receivers Steve Johnson (groin) and Robert Woods (ankle), who both sat out Week 11, took part in Monday's practice. The Bills are coming off a bye Week 12 and return to action Week 13 vs. Atlanta.

Steve Johnson expects to return after bye


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/19/2013) Bills wide receiver Steve Johnson expects his absence from the lineup to end at one game. After sitting out Week 11 vs. N.Y. Jets due to a groin injury, Johnson said Tuesday he expects to be back in the lineup when Buffalo comes off its bye in Week 13 vs. Atlanta.

"I'll definitely be suited up," Johnson said, per ESPN. "I think I'll be much better than what I was the past week. So I'm optimistic about it.

"With my situation, it's definitely a good time for the bye week. It will give me another week to try to strengthen my core and get these little nagging injuries out of the way. So hopefully I can come back and make it a strong push for these next five [games].
