Vikings WR Charles Johnson poised for breakout year
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

There were the flashes of brilliance in 2014. There is the addition of fellow wideout Mike Wallace to divert attention. There is the rapidly improving ron-field rapport with quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.

It all adds up to the potential for a breakout year for Vikings wide receiver Charles Johnson. The combination of Johnson and Wallace could be a nightmare for opposing defenses this season.

Offensive coordinator Norv Turner, who coached Johnson in Cleveland in 2012, has tracked his development. And he likes what he has seen this offseason.

"He's stronger," Turner told the team website. "He was recovering from that knee surgery a year ago, and I don't know that he was ever 100 percent. I think he's 100 percent. He's got a great work ethic ... and he's a big, strong guy. He's a 218-pound receiver that can run. He's got everything you need to be a productive player in this league."

Johnson showed his potential late last year by catching 25 passes for 415 yards in the final seven games.

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

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

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.

Fantasy Analysis | 1418692155
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.
