|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.
| JuJu, Conner ruled out, Diontae Johnson will play|
Steelers hit with injury bug
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 22, 2:15 pm
|The Steelers will officially be without JuJu Smith-Schuster and James Conner against the Bengals. CB Artie Burns is listed as doubtful. There were no other injury designations, meaning WR Diontae Johnson (concussion) is good to go. That's good news for a very depleted WR corps. (Brooke Pryor on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Johnson suffered a bad looking concussion in Week 11 but will suit up for a depleted Steelers offense that will feature Johnson and James Washington at wide receiver along with Jaylen Samuels, Benny Snell and Trey Edmunds at running back. Samuels in PPR leagues is the only recommended option of this group.
| JuJu uncertain for Week 12|
Concussion, knee injury
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Nov 18, 2:07 pm
|On the same play he suffered a concussion against the Browns, Steelers’ WR JuJu Smith-Schuster also injured his knee and now Pittsburgh is uncertain whether he will be able to play Sunday at Cincinnati, per league sources.

FFToday's Take: The Steelers are banged up at the receiver position this week which could mean more looks for James Washington who's posted 13 catches for 208 yards and 1 TD over the last three weeks. We'll have more update on JuJu as the week rolls on.
