Wide Receiver BC Lions
August 13, 2017 Shaq Johnson News
RotoWire Fantasy Analysis
Johnson notched two receptions for 73 yards in Sunday's 41-8 loss to the Riders.
Despite a very difficult night for the Lions' passing game overall, Johnson stepped up with his best receiving yardage total of the season. The 24-year-old hasn't notched more than three receptions in any game this season, but he's shown some big-play upside with catches of 36, 41 and Sunday's season-best 52 yards. The major obstacle to consistent fantasy production for Johnson at present is the wealth of targets in the team's air attack, but current injuries to Bryan Burnham (foot) and Nick Moore (undisclosed) could continue opening up opportunities in the short-term.
