2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
Once considered a viable every week fantasy starter, new Chargers wideout Steve Johnson may be one of the biggest boom-or-bust receivers on the fantasy market in 2015.

Johnson eclipsed 1,000 receiving yards for three straight seasons as a member of the Bills in 2010 through 2012 before an injury-plagued 2013 saw him fail to get to 600 yards. Johnson looked to revitalize his career as a member of the 49ers in 2014, but could never get on the same page with quarterback Colin Kaepernick and ended up finishing fourth in snaps at the position behind Anquan Boldin, Michael Crabtree and Brandon Lloyd.

A new offense and a more traditional quarterback could do wonders for Johnson, who will look to get back to where he was in 2010-2012 which made him one of the more valuable fantasy receivers in the game. Expect him to start as the team's WR2 and potentially be a big player in the downfield passing game. If he and Rivers get off to a quick start, there is no reason why Johnson couldn't return low-end fantasy WR2 numbers while costing significantly less than that to acquire in your draft.

News From The Past 90 Days
Stevie Johnson could be Chargers' X-factor
WR developed good rapport with Philip Rivers in offseason
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jun 29, 4:15 pm

San Diego Chargers
WR Steve Johnson appears to have found a home with the San Diego Chargers. The 28-year-old signed a three-year, $10.5 million contract with the Chargers in free agency and has developed a good rapport with QB Philip Rivers during offseason work. The wide receiver group should be a plus for San Diego’s offense, and it should compete for the best combination of players at that position in the AFC West. Malcom Floyd provides familiarity and stability as the elder statesmen of the group, while Keenan Allen should be more productive in Year 3. But the X-factor will be Johnson and the impact plays he can produce in critical situations for this offense. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Johnson is expected to replace Eddie Royal as the primary slot receiver and should outperform his predecessor since he is equally capable inside and outside the hashmarks. With field stretchers like Floyd and Jacoby Jones on board, Johnson and Allen should have ample opportunity to work the middle part of the field. Johnson has top-30 receiver potential in this offense, making him a steal at his current 14th-round ADP.


Green expected to have bigger role in offense
We've heard this before
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Jun 19, 7:00 am

San Diego Chargers
The Chargers said it last year. They're saying it again now. Ladarius Green is expected to have a larger role in their offense, the team working to take advantage of his size-speed combo to present a mismatch for defenses. "I'd be shocked if he didn't have his most productive year," offensive coordinator Frank Reich said. (San Diego Union Tribune)

FFToday's Take: We've heard this before. Green's expected breakout last season never happened as he dealt with injuries and the consistently good play of veteran Antonio Gates. Green has immense physical skills but with Steve Johnson added to the receiving mix, Green will likely need an injury to Gates in order to make a significant fantasy impact.
