Vikings may turn to WR Olabisi Johnson in Week 8

With Adam Thielen out, the Vikings would likely turn to rookie Bisi Johnson again.

“It felt really good,” Johnson said. “That just shows how much confidence the coaches have in me, and how much confidence [quarterback] Kirk [Cousins] obviously has in me. I can go out there and make plays all the time. That’s what I’m here for; that’s why I’m here. I’m here to make plays, and I’ll do just that.”

Fantasy Impact: 

Johnson was targeted 8 times after taking over for Thielen. Johnson played 52 of the team’s 73 snaps and caught four passes for 40 yards, including his first NFL touchdown. Thielen's hamstring injury isn't believed to be serious.
