It came down to a true game-time decision for Johnson, who could likely be relegated to third downs and red-zone situations according to Fox Sports' Jay Glazer. Johnson sat out last week's contest versus the Packers with a knee injury, but tested it on Sunday during warmups to determine whether he could ultimately take the field once again.
Fantasy Spin: If Johnson was to take the majority of snaps at less than 100 percent, he would be a must-start for fantasy owners in all formats. But with news of him potentially being limited to certain duties, and at a limited capacity, his output would essentially be entirely touchdown-dependent. It also doesn't help that he will line-up from one of the league's best cover cornerbacks in Joe Haden.
With all of that taken into account, it makes for a pretty high variance for his fantasy prospects, and one of the most reliable names in fantasy football will be one of the biggest risks this week. Some owners are in position to take that risk, but for the majority, better options are likely available.
