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.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury JuJu Smith-Schuster back at practice Wednesday
Steelers WR on track to play Week 15
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Wed Dec 11, 8:33 pm

Pittburgh Steelers
Wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster was able to return to practice on Wednesday as a full participant. Although James Conner is still dealing with the shoulder injury he reaggravated in Week 11, he was also able to return as a full participant. Practicing in a limited capacity over the last two weeks, Conner joined Smith-Schuster in making a significant step in returning to the lineup. Running back Jaylen Samuels suffered a groin injury against the Cardinals on Sunday, and his availability for Week 15 is still up in the air. Tight end Vance McDonald is in the NFL’s concussion protocol after leaving last Sunday’s game in the second half and was unable to practice on Wednesday. (SB Nation)

FFToday's Take: JuJU and Conner are the main concerns here, as they'll reduce the value of some of the guys whop have been filling in like James Washington and Diontae Johnson, as well as RB Benny Snell.

Injury JuJu Out, Conner Doubtful for Steelers
Knee injury for Smith-Schuster
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 29, 3:00 pm

Pittburgh Steelers
The Steelers will be without wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster for the second week in a row, and running back James Conner likely won't play, either. Conner was a limited participant in practice on Thursday and Friday, but Smith-Schuster didn't practice at all during the week. He cleared concussion protocol Wednesday but is still dealing with a knee injury that requires a brace. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: The Steelers will feature James Washington and Diontae Johnson at receiver with Benny Snell, Jaylen Samuels getting the bulk of the running back work with Trey Edmunds mixing in. It will hard to trust anyone but Washington at receiver with both Samuels and Snell middling Flex options against the Browns.

Injury JuJu, Conner ruled out, Diontae Johnson will play
Steelers hit with injury bug
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 22, 2:15 pm

Pittburgh Steelers
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.

Injury JuJu uncertain for Week 12
Concussion, knee injury
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Nov 18, 2:07 pm

Pittburgh Steelers
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. Steelers WR Diontae Johnson also nursing a concussion. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

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.
