Both Stevie Johnson and Robert Woods are out for the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.
Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the New York Jets, according to Mike Rodak of ESPN. Johnson is dealing with a groin injury, and was not present at team practice all week.
Johnson sustained the injury against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 10. This will be the second game he misses this season, as he's been banged up off and on. He leads the Bills in receiving yards, with 41 receptions for 471 yards and three touchdowns in nine games played.
It's unclear how serious Johnson's injury is at this point, but it sounds like there was never any hope that he'd see the practice field or the playing field this week. Fellow receiver Robert Woods is also out for the game after missing practice all week.
Fantasy Impact: Johnson has been disappointing for fantasy owners this season, but it's definitely not good to see him miss. It's hard to guess where his targets will go as well, with Woods out as well. T.J. Graham and Marquise Goodwin will likely be the starters for Buffalo on Sunday.
