San Diego Chargers WR Tyrell Johnson caught four passes for 47 yards in the preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals Friday, Aug. 19. He was targeted six times during the game.
Fantasy Tip: Johnson is competing with Dontrelle Inman for the No. 3 receiver job and may be the frontrunner at this point. He would receive some targets if he wins the job but would be behind several players in terms of being a top target. Johnson probably can be avoided during fantasy drafts but could be a waiver wire option during the season.
