Johnson had two early drops in the game on Sunday night and didn't see the field much the rest of the second half. He was replaced by Washington. The Steelers tried to get Johnson going in the second half with some easy catches but in the end owners were hurt by his first half drops. Meanwhile, the tweet said Smith-Schuster didn't leave the field on offense and Samuels led all RBs in snaps. The Steelers did trail much of the game after a pick-six by the Bills so that could explain Samuels' snaps, but the Steelers have struggled to run the ball as of late, too.
PIT WR James Washington - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at Baltimore Ravens
James Washington got eight targets last week, catching five passes for 45 yards. He likely would have had a touchdown catch, but was held on the play, resulting in a penalty. Washington has 34 catches for 574 yards and three touchdowns in his past eight games and is the deep threat in this offense. But guessing which Steelers receiver will be the most valuable from week to week is tough. And since it's a small pie, there are better, and safer, options available.
