Even though the Buffalo Bills are still only 2-8 after back-to-back wins, there's little point debating that the team has found a budding star in third-year wide receiver Stevie Johnson. Buried on the depth chart during his first two seasons after being a seventh-round pick out of Kentucky, Johnson has exploded onto the NFL scene after replacing future Hall of Fame wideout Terrell Owens in Buffalo's starting lineup.

He's had five games with five or more receptions, three with (well) over 100 receiving yards, and two with multiple scores. Stevie currently ranks 14th in the league in total receptions, tenth in receiving yards, and tied for third in receiving touchdowns.

Johnson, 24, signed a four-year contract in July of 2008 - a contract that, according to RotoWorld.com, will pay him $470K in base salary this year, and $550K next year.
