San Francisco 49ers WR Stevie Johnson has a very good chance to make the 53-man roster, according to head coach Jim Harbaugh.
Huddle Up: While Johnson has caught only 2 of his 5 targets for 11 yards in 3 games this preseason, he gives the Niners a veteran option behind starters Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin. That said, if Boldin and Crabtree stay healthy, Johnson will have a minimum fantasy impact at best and won't be useful outside the deepest of leagues.

The Buffalo Bills likely will place WR Stevie Johnson on the trade block after they selected WR Sammy Watkins in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Hampered by injuries, Johnson hit a 4-year low with 52 catches, 597 yards and 3 TDs this past season and clearly becomes expendable with the Bills' young WR corps, headed up by Watkins and 2013 2nd-round pick Robert Woods.

Buffalo Bills WR Stevie Johnson is due a $1.75 million roster bonus Saturday, March 15.

Huddle Up: Johnson's days as the go-to receiver in Buffalo are likely numbered, and that $1.75 million bonus could be the final straw as the Bills turn to Robert Woods, T.J. Graham and Marquise Goodwin.
