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 looking like Bridgewater favorite
Vikings WR poised for big breakout
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Sun Aug 23, 1:45 pm

Minnesota Vikings

FFToday's Take: Teddy Bridgewater trusts Johnson more than any other receiver. When the Vikings went for it on 4th and 6, Bridgewater fired a completion outside the numbers to Johnson, who runs precise routes and could be on the verge of a big-time breakout in 2015. He's a solid WR2 with tons of upside.


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.
