Rapoport said the procedure was successful, but as he also added it's a tough loss for a Pittsburgh offense that was maybe showing signs of hitting its stride last week in a win over Denver. Johnson and Claypool could see more targets as a result, at least until Washington can return as the team's WR3. More targets for Najee Harries and the tight ends could also be in the mix for the Steelers offense.
PIT WR Diontae Johnson - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 13 vs Ravens
Even when the Steelers offense looks like a shell of itself, Diontae Johnson still finds a way to shine through. Nine catches (14 targets) for 95 yards against the Bengals on a day when the Steelers were embarrassed everywhere else. There's no reason to question Johnson anymore. He's basically matchup-proof. Now, on the flip side, over the past two seasons (four games), Johnson has only averaged 33 yards and 4.5 catches against the Ravens. But with his recent stretch, he'll bump that average up this week.
