Draft note
by John Paulsen
As a rookie, Johnson turned 92 targets into 59 catches for 680 yards and five touchdowns, an impressive feat considering that Mason Rudolph and Devlin “Duck” Hodges threw most of the passes for Pittsburgh last season. On one hand, James Washington out-gained Johnson in nine of 15 games and boasted a higher yards per route run. On the other, Johnson fared very well in Matt Harmon’s Reception Perception charting, which I’ve found is a helpful indicator of breakout potential. Even though Washington was more productive, Johnson out-snapped Washington in most of the later games that Johnson, Washington and JuJu Smith-Schuster were all healthy, which indicates that perhaps Johnson won the No. 2 job last season. Regardless, the Steelers play a lot of three-WR and regularly have three receivers playing 70%+ of the snaps, so Johnson should have the opportunity to shine whether or not he’s ahead of Washington on the depth chart. The return of Ben Roethlisberger is obviously a big deal as well.

PIT WR Diontae Johnson - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 at Baltimore Ravens
Diontae Johnson got a team-high nine targets last week, catching eight of them for 81 yards and a touchdown in his most productive game of the season. But with JuJu Smith-Schuster and James Washington competing for targets in a small passing pie, it's tough to figure out which Steelers receiver will be the guy each week. Johnson is the team's leading receiver on the season. but Washington has been the more valuable player in the second half. And Smith-Schuster is still the nominal No. 1. Any of the three could be the top guy -- albeit no more than a No. 2 play, at best, in a given week.
