Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
There have been six games where Johnson has played all four quarters. His target totals in those games are 10, 13, 15, 10, 11, and 16. That's a bit ridiculous, but his fantasy managers won't be complaining. Over the last two weeks, he's caught 18 passes for 227 yards and a touchdown. Will his ridiculous target share continue against the Ravens, who've seen just a 53.8 percent target share to wide receivers (third-lowest mark in NFL)? The average wide receiver reception against them goes for just 11.92 yards, which would benefit Johnson, whose average depth of target is just 8.8 yards. The last time they played, Johnson needed to leave the game for a bit (getting checked out for injury), and it led to him seeing just three targets. He played 41-of-53 snaps, so it wasn't a massive absence, which goes to show just how tough the matchup with the Steelers is. He plays most of his snaps at LWR, which is where Jimmy Smith is usually at, but he's very questionable for this game with an ankle injury. If he were to miss this game, that would move Marlon Humphrey out to the perimeter, and slide Tramon Williams into the slot. All-in-all, it would be a slight upgrade for Johnson, as Humphrey is dominant in the slot, but has been a bit more human on the perimeter, allowing 9-of-15 passing for 130 yards there. Johnson should offer a decent floor as a low-end WR2, but don't expect a massive performance.It was practically a 50/50 timeshare between these two last week, as Edmonds played 36 snaps to Drake's 33 snaps. Drake did touch the ball 15 times to Edmonds' six touches, including the goal-line carries, which are clearly worth a lot, especially with Kyler Murray dinged up. Drake also saw a season-high five targets against the Seahawks, which would be massive for his value moving forward. It's not like the Seahawks were a matchup to exploit through the air, but part of me wonders if it was due to Murray's shoulder issue. Time will tell, but Drake clearly has a valuable role. The Patriots opponents have run the ball a league-high 48.8 percent of the time, which has led to 22.4 carries per game against them by running backs. "Wait, why isn't it more than that for a team who faces such a high percentage of run plays?" It's due to the fact that teams have averaged just 57.6 plays per game against them. Removing the one game where Drake didn't play, the split in carries has been Drake 146 - Edmonds 39. We should be expecting 16-plus carries out of Drake this week. Efficiency hasn't been that much of an issue against the Patriots who've allowed 4.42 yards per carry and 6.47 yards per target to running backs; both of which are above the league average. Every running back who's received at least 14 carries against the Patriots (five running backs have) has finished with at least 83 total yards. Drake should be worth considering as a low-end RB2 for this week. Edmonds has averaged just 8.0 touches per game when Drake is active, which is hard to trust as anything more than an RB4.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Johnson has posted at least 77 yards receiving in his last 3 games and he has had back-to-back 100-yard games. He should be a WR2, even against the Ravens tough defense that is 4th against fantasy wide receivers. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Johnson just may be one of the most underrated receivers in the entire NFL. He put on an absolute show last week and he has been the focal point of this offense for every game that he's been healthy. Even in a tough matchup, Johnson belongs in your lineup as a mid-range WR2.Edmonds was able to find the end zone last week on a busted play, but he only saw six total touches. It's not worth looking Edmonds' way in fantasy this week with that minimal workload.
