Bisi Johnson – WR

Bisi Johnson started the season as the Vikings‘ No. 2 wide receiver after having a very strong camp. He had three receptions in the opening game, but he has had just one catch since. He’s also been passed up on the depth chart by the explosive rookie Justin Jefferson and he has become almost as forgotten about as Irv Smith Jr. in Minnesota’s passing attack.

The reason Johnson was disappointing in the game against the Texans was because he had a chance to make a big play down the field, but he came up short.

Kirk Cousins looked for him down the sidelines and Johnson had a step on the man covering him. Cousins probably put a little too much on the ball, but if Johnson had a bit more in the speed department it would’ve been a huge gain for the Vikings offense.

While Jefferson and Adam Thielen have formed a dangerous duo in the last couple of games, it would be nice for Minnesota to have an emerging third wide receiver for their passing attack. Johnson had a shot to be that guy, but he came up a few inches short.

Many figured Johnson would have a lot more receptions by this point in the season. If he continues to not be able to come up big plays when given the chance, his quarterback could lose trust in him and not look his way in future contests.
