Norv Turner: Charles Johnson 'far and away' best Vikings receiver
by Igor Mello |

Vikings offensive coordinator Norv Turner acknowledged Wednesday that Charles Johnson is "far and away our best receiver" on the roster, per

Johnson was taken by Packers in the seventh-round of the 2013 draft but was never promoted from the practice squad. He left Green Bay for Cleveland in 2013 before Minnesota took him out of the Browns' practice squad in 2014. Under Turner, Johnson put together a breakout season, registering 58 targets, 31 catches and 475 yards. He racked up 415 of 475 receiving yards once he became a regular starter from Week 11 through the end of the season.

Charles Johnson looking like the go-to guy
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater now has back-to-back 300-yard games, which doesn't mean as much for his Fantasy value as it does wide receiver Charles Johnson's. He has emerged as Bridgewater's go-to guy in recent weeks, averaging 71.0 yards over his last five games. And the targets have been pretty consistent for him as well. He had a four-target game in there, but otherwise, he's gotten at least seven every time.

Now, if Bridgewater regresses to 150 yards with a tough matchup Week 16 at Miami, it won't matter who's catching the ball, but at least in deeper leagues, Johnson is worth a look with the strides he and his quarterback have made together.

For more major takeaways from Week 15, be sure to check out my latest post to the Fantasy Football Today blog.

Charles Johnson emerging in Vikings offense
by Chris Towers |

Through the first 10 weeks of the season, the Vikings rarely used second-year receiver Charles Johnson , however he put together his second solid game in a row in Week 12's 24-21 loss the Packers.

Coming off a six-catch, 87-yard performance, Johnson was once a again a huge part of the team's plans Sunday. Johnson was targeted a team-high 11 times in the game, and though he only caught three of those passes, he led the team with 52 yards receiving. Johnson also hauled in his first career touchdown, a 22-yard pass in the second quarter, giving him his first career double-digit Fantasy scoring day.

Johnson is a pretty unheralded player, so his recent breakout comes as a huge surprise. However, with Cordarrelle Patterson's inability to step up all season long, he is taking advantage of the opportunity given to him. He is at least worth a look on waivers in deeper leagues, if you need help at receiver, though it would be awfully tough to rely on him as a starter.
