Norv: WR Charles Johnson has 'picked up where he left off'

Star-Tribune - [Full Article]

Vikings OC Norv Turner had some nice things to say about WR Charles Johnson.

“CJ has picked up where he left off in December and he’s having a good spring,” Turner said.

Johnson won’t technically be labeled as the No. 1 receiver with the Vikings trading for Mike Wallace from the Dolphins, but he’s expected to have a big role in the offense. Johnson built a rapport with Teddy Bridgewater once he took over as the starting “X” receiver over Cordarrelle Paterson, and the chemistry continued throughout OTAs and minicamp this offseason.

Fantasy Impact: 

Johnson started playing significant snaps in Week 11, and over the final seven games of the season, he averaged 3.6 catches for 59 yards and 0.29 touchdowns. He was the #31 fantasy receiver in that span. He should continue to have plenty of opportunity to grow in Norv Turner's offense despite the arrival of Mike Wallace.
