Minnesota Vikings WR Charles X. Johnson appears to have everything it takes to produce in the NFL, according to offensive coordinator Norv Turner. "He's got great work ethic, and he's a big, strong guy. He's a 218-pound receiver that can run. He's got everything you need to be a productive player in this league," Turner said. Turner believes Johnson has completely recovered from the knee surgery he had last offseason. Johnson has been working at split end in three-receiver sets during offseason workouts.
Fantasy Tip: Johnson posted decent numbers in 2014 with 75 yards and two touchdowns and should have a bigger role in the passing game this season. Johnson could be a late-round option in deeper leagues this season.

Minnesota Vikings WR Charles X. Johnson is "far and away our best receiver," according to offensive coordinator Norv Turner. Johnson emerged as QB Teddy Bridgewater's No. 1 target in the second half of last season, ending with 31 catches for 475 yards. Turner has high hopes for Johnson in 2015 with his knee injury even further behind him.
Fantasy Tip: The chemistry that Johnson built with Bridgewater last season is very important, and it'll likely continue in 2015. Aside from Johnson, Greg Jennings may be on his way out, and Cordarrelle Patterson didn't do anything to endear himself to the team. Consider Johnson a WR4 with upside in this year's drafts.

Minnesota Vikings WR Charles X. Johnson had three receptions for a team-high 52 yards and a touchdown in the Week 12 game against the Green Bay Packers.
Fantasy Tip: Johnson has led the Vikings in receiving yardage in each of the past two games, emerging as a sleeper WR2 or flex play in FantasyScore leagues, especially at a very low salary.
