2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
Tossed aside by the receiver needy Browns just prior to the start of the regular season, Johnson was scooped up by the Vikings and made minimal contributions over the first nine weeks of the season. But after a 6-catch, 87-yard day against the Bears in Week 11, the Vikings inserted Johnson into the starting “X” receiver role and watched him flourish. Over the final six weeks of the season, Johnson would tally a 19-328-2 line on nearly 7 targets a game.

With a clearly defined role in a friendly position and scheme, Johnson is poised to take quite a leap in 2015. No, that isn’t a line I recycled from Cordarrelle Patterson’s outlook from last year, as Johnson has the technical skills that Turner looks for in his No.1 receiver. Johnson also possesses serious athletic ability to go with a 6’2’’, 210 pound frame. As the main target in the passing game, look for Johnson to easily double his catch total from last year (31) and approach 1,000 yards to go along with 5+ touchdowns. With little name recognition and a young quarterback at the helm, you might be able to steal Johnson as a WR3/4 and get potential WR2 production out of him when all is said and done.

News From The Past 90 Days
Charles Johnson "picking up where he left off"
Expected to have a big role in offense
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Jun 24, 2:51 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Charles Johnson seemed to have gained some stability for the first time in career last year. The wide receiver emerged as the Vikings No. 1 target last year in his second season, though he didn’t even start the season with the team. “CJ has picked up where he left off in December and he’s having a good spring,” Turner said. Johnson won’t technically be labeled as the No. 1 receiver with the Vikings trading for Mike Wallace from the Dolphins, but he’s expected to have a big role in the offense. (Minneapolis Star Tribune)

FFToday's Take: Johnson's fantasy value took a hit with the signing of Mike Wallace but both should be in the starting lineup come Week 1. Both also have WR2 upside in 2015 with Johnson a slight favorite in PPR leagues, playing the "X" position in Norv Turner's offense.

Zimmer pleased with WR Patterson's offseason
HC praised third-year wideout's shape and attention to detail
By: Doug Orth | Mon May 18, 4:00 pm

Minnesota Vikings
“(Cordarrelle Patterson) is doing a good job in this offseason. He has been in better shape coming in, and he is doing a better job of running routes, of competing each and every down. I look forward to him coming on and I’m a big fan of his. We’re just trying to get him to realize all the little intricacies you have to do offensively in the NFL in order to be a great player.” (Minneapolis Star-Tribune)

FFToday's Take: Coming off a highly-disappointing season in 2014, Patterson has been generating a lot of early buzz. He'll need to continue drawing similar praise from HC Mike Zimmer and OC Norv Turner in order to have any shot at earning back a starting job since Charles Johnson and Mike Wallace appear entrenched at the moment. Barring a lights-out training camp or an injury to Johnson or Wallace, Patterson appears destined to be a third receiver in Minnesota in 2015.
