Vikings | Charles Johnson steps up

Sun, 16 Nov 2014 13:51:35 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Charles Johnson posted team highs with six receptions and 87 yards in Week 11 against the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson was targeted seven times, stepping up his game with both Greg Jennings and Jarius Wright departing early due to injury. Johnson showed good athleticism and speed, and could be a boon to fantasy owners in need of a receiver if Jennings and Wright are forced to miss time.
