Stevie Johnson caught 4-of-6 targets versus the Seahawks for 63 yards. He and quarterback Philip Rivers appear to be very in-sync as they head into the regular season. We heard it throughout camp that Rivers is beginning to really trust Johnson, but last night was the confirmation. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: We currently have Stevie Johnson ranked ten spots higher than his current ADP. That means the risk is low, and reward could be plentiful. He is not going to be a weekly WR1, but could easily generate enough targets for a bye-week replacement or even as a flex player in deeper leagues.

According to Fox Sports, San Diego's newest receiving weapon has trimmed down to 193 lbs. That is a weight that Stevie Johnson has not played at since high school. The method for the madness is to relieve any excess stress on his surgically repaired knee and to increase his speed. (Source: Fox Sports)

Fantasy Impact: This is great news for the Chargers as they will line him up primarily in the slot. Johnson is not the smoothest route runner, but is a savvy veteran who knows how to get open. He is currently ranked nine spots ahead of his positional ADP and could be a value flier in all formats.

Building a rapport with Rivers and should offer sneaky PPR/best ball production in the San Diego slot.

Rivers likes to pass the ball around, and that makes the cheapest option on the chargers offense a great value.

Has a chance to be a red zone threat in San Diego, especially considering the 4 week absence of Gates.

He is a huge value pick late in the draft. He is worth picking up and could post 750 yards on 5 TDs.

Stevie Johnson will play the slot and outside in the Chargers' offense, which should allow him to stay on the field quite a bit. If he can completely beat out Malcom Floyd he really shouldn't leave the field. That's good news as Philip Rivers is still a good quarterback and to start the season will be without Antonio Gates. Johnson is one of my favorite late round picks this season.
