Year-in and year-out, I see Steve Johnson drafted in the fifth or sixth round and he never produces those kinds of returns. I get it. He’s a talented guy who is his team’s first receiving option and he did finish as the 23rd-ranked fantasy receiver last season. That said, he’s playing in a wide receiver wasteland in Buffalo with Kevin Kolb (or Tavaris Jackson) as his quarterback and only topped 13 fantasy points in one game last season. I’m not saying the Kentucky alum is a horrible option, but I want some potential for a huge game if I’m drafting a guy into a starter spot. Johnson provides a slow-and-steady tortoise approach, but I’d much rather take a guy with some hare-potential in the fifth or sixth round (guess where he’s going in most mocks so far…).
