Fantasy Football Week 8: Start Stevie Johnson Against Washington Redskins

If you're a fan of the Washington Redskins, then you know the story by now. Despite DeAngelo Hall's reputations as one of the top cornerbacks in the league, the Redskins tend to give up huge fantasy numbers to their opponents' top wide receivers. We saw it last week with Steve Smith of the Carolina Panthers. We saw it in previous weeks with Larry Fitzgerald of the Arizona Cardinals, Dez Bryant of the Dallas Cowboys and Hakeem Nicks of the New York Giants. And now we'll probably see it again this week with Stevie Johnson of the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy football project site numberFire lists Johnson as the 10th rated wide receiver this week, with an expected point total of 11.00.

What's worse for the Redskins is that Hall, along with starting safety Oshiomogha Atogwe are both listed as questionable for the Redskins vs. Bills game. This all adds up to a big game for Johnson, as well as his quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.
