Johnson's usage has been borderline TE1-worthy. He has an 11.4% Target share and a 13.3% first-read share. He has run a route on 70.9% of the team's dropbacks. That's not as high as we would like, but it's not terrible. If Thomas gets locked up this week with Alexander, it could push some target volume his way. Last year, Green Bay was quite good against tight ends, allowing the second-fewest receiving yards and sixth-fewest fantasy points to the position. After two games, maybe we are seeing a turning of the tide as Green Bay has allowed the 13th-highest yards per reception and the 12th-most receiving yards to tight ends. Week 3 Positional Value: TE2 with TE1 upside this week.
