Washington had a 3-52-0 line last week. It was a high for both yards and catches before getting hurt. Johnson will see a boost if Washington can't go and has already been a popular pickup. Holton possibly sees more time as well as a third option but there are a lot of questions in the offense due to the QB situation.
PIT WR Diontae Johnson - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 6 at Los Angeles Chargers
Diontae Johnson got a career-high eight targets last week and caught five passes, but they went for just 27 yards. It also ended a two-game scoring streak for him. He also played 91 percent of the snaps last week, and that's not going to change, especially with James Washington out this week with a shoulder injury. Johnson is a solid start as a flex option.
