2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
In an effort to be thorough, and because this offense has a boatload of targets and receptions to be replaced, I want to mention Johnson. The 3rd round pick from Toledo has a chance to carve out a significant role on the team this season, but I just don't think much of it will result in fantasy production. Johnson has great quicks and burst, but he's a raw route runner and will need time to develop, much like another MAC receiver drafted by the Steelers years ago. Most of his impact in 2019 will come as a returner and gadget weapon on offense. Keep an eye on offseason reports, as he doesn't exactly have a stable of all-pros ahead of him on the depth chart, but for now he's a wait and see.

Diontae Johnson pushing for big role?
Rookie pushing James Washington for WR3 reps

According to NFL.com's Amber Theoharis, some Steelers' staff members have rookie WR Diontae Johnson ahead of James Washington on the depth chart. (NFL.com - Amber Theoharis)

FFToday's Take: Despite receiving earlier a shout out earlier this summer from JuJu Smith-Schuster about being a player who is going to surprise some people, Washington has struggled to challenge Donte Moncrief for the starting job. It sounds now as if he is far from a lock to be the third receiver as well. If either Johnson or Washington can secure the job, they will be worth owning in fantasy. However, if they split reps, both will be hard to trust.
