Diontae Johnson News
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson caught just two of his four targets for 11 yards and added two carries for 11 yards in a 24-20 loss to the New York Jets in Week 4. The four targets are the fewest Johnson has seen all season and one would have to go back to Week 5 of the 2021 season to find the last time Johnson saw fewer targets. Of course, it bears mentioning that Johnson's slow outing came with rookie quarterback Kenny Pickett under center for the entirety of the second half. Pickett seemed to zero in on fellow rookie George Pickens, who finished with 102 receiving yards. This is a cause for concern for fantasy managers rostering Johnson.

The veteran wideout is still looking for his first touchdown after three games as the Pittsburgh offense has had some struggles putting points on the board. That being said, Johnson is as close to a lock as possible to draw double-digit targets on a weekly basis. He will be a solid WR2 in Week 4's matchup against the New York Jets.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson racked up 107 catches on 169 targets for 1,161 yards and eight scores over 16 games in 2021. The 25-year-old was fourth in league with a 29% team target share and 24th with a 5.0 YAC per reception in 2021. He led the team in receptions and receiving yards last year while catching passes from a washed-up version of Ben Roethlisberger, who retired earlier this offseason. The Steelers signed former No. 2 overall pick Mitch Trubisky and drafted...
