Vikings | Charles Johnson catches long score

Fri, 12 Aug 2016 21:30:56 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Charles Johnson had one catch, a 49-yard touchdown, in a 17-16 win over the Cincinnati Bengals in the preseason Friday, Aug. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson looks healthy after battling injuries last year, and for now, he is starting. Laquan Treadwell has more upside, but Johnson could still have value as a WR5.

Vikings | Charles Johnson a starter for now

Mon, 08 Aug 2016 15:04:57 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Charles Johnson is listed as a starting split end wide receiver on the team's first depth chart with WR Laquon Treadwell as the backup at the position. Johnson have been running ahead of Johnson for most of training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson is the leading candidate for the starting job at this point, but Treadwell should have plenty of opportunities to win the job before the start of the season. Owners should consider Treadwell as a No. 4 receiver in most leagues, while Johnson may only be a late-round option in deeper leagues.

Vikings | Charles Johnson on track to make team?

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 18:15:05 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Charles Johnson is likely competing with WR Moritz Bohringer for a spot on the roster, according to beat writer Matt Vensel, who also mentioned that Johnson had a strong spring while working mainly with the first-team offense.

Fantasy Tip: Although it sounds like Johnson has an early edge on Bohringer to secure a roster spot, he is at best the No. 3 receiver in a run-heavy offense. He is unlikely to make an impact for fantasy owners.

Vikings | Charles Johnson working with starters

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 17:14:42 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Charles Johnson received most of his reps as the split end with the first-team offense during spring workouts.

Fantasy Tip: At best, Johnson would likely be Minnesota's No. 3 receiver, which gives him little fantasy upside in an offense geared toward Adrian Peterson and the running game.

Vikings | Charles Johnson must earn roster spot

Thu, 09 Jun 2016 13:55:45 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Charles Johnson will need to earn his way onto the Vikings' roster this season, in the opinion of Matt Vensel of The Minneapolis Star Tribune. Johnson lost his starting spot to WR Stefon Diggs last season, and now he'll have to compete with rookie WR Laquon Treadwell and WR Cordarrelle Patterson. Johnson needs to prove himself even more after playing in just 23 games the last two seasons combined.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson has plenty of work to do to regain his fantasy relevance. He could very well be Minnesota's No. 4 wide receiver when all is said and done, so don't draft him as more than a WR5.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater worked with WRs

Thu, 07 Apr 2016 15:30:40 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater and Vikings wide receivers, including WR Charles Johnson, recently finished workouts in Orlando, Fla. Johnson said it felt good to make connections, be around his teammates again and learn some new things.

Fantasy Tip: It's always promising when quarterbacks and receivers meet during the offseason to work out together. Bridgewater still isn't in QB1 territory, though, but he is a capable backup fantasy quarterback and a good matchup play.

Vikings | Rib bothered Charles Johnson

Thu, 07 Apr 2016 15:23:06 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Charles Johnson (ribs) said he broke a rib against the San Diego Chargers in September of last season. He added that it took until early November to feel like he could play while managing the injury. Johnson said the rib injury is good now.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like Johnson is good to go for offseason activities and the regular season. He's basically looking at a do-over from last season due to the rib injury; he only caught nine passes for 127 yards. Stefon Diggs is still the top Minnesota wide receiver, but Johnson could regain his fantasy relevance in 2016.
