Diontae Johnson Explodes For 92 Yards, TD

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson had a big afternoon in a 26-21 win over the Denver Broncos in Week 2. Johnson caught eight of his 13 targets for 92 yards and a touchdown in the win. This marks the second straight week where fantasy gamers saw Johnson lead Pittsburgh in targets as he has drawn 23 through two games, nine more than JuJu Smith-Schuster. Johnson's score came on a 28-yard reception at the end of the third quarter. It's too early to say for certain but fantasy gamers may be looking at a 1A/1B situation between Johnson and Smith-Schuster going forward. Johnson is a solid WR2 going forward.

Diontae Johnson A WR3 In Week 2

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson is coming off a Week 1 win which saw him lead his team with 10 targets. The second-year wideout will look to build upon that performance in Week 2 against the Denver Broncos. Johnson has been dealing with a toe injury for the past couple of weeks but he was able to practice fully on Friday ahead of his Week 2 tilt. The Broncos coughed up a 100-yard receiving game to Corey Davis in Week 1 and placed top cornerback A.J. Bouye on injured reserve earlier in the week. Fantasy gamers can trust Johnson as a rock-solid WR3 in Week 2.

Diontae Johnson Doesn't Practice Wednesday

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson (toe) missed practice on Wednesday, according to reports. Johnson also missed time last week with what appears to be the same ailment, as he was held out of the Wednesday and Thursday sessions before getting a full practice in on Friday. So far, there are no reports that his toe injury got worse during Week 1's win over the New York Giants, where Johnson played on 55 of 64 offensive snaps and caught six balls on 10 targets. Fantasy gamers shouldn't worry about Johnson's Week 2 status as long as he's able to practice by Friday. Treat Johnson as an upside WR3 for Week 2.
