Depth Chart
As I understand it, catching the football is an important skill for the position Diontae Johnson plays and that seemed to be a major issue for a 2nd year wideout from Toledo. Johnson led the NFL with 10 drops last season, often catching heat from his coaches, as he was benched several times for his transgressions. But the Steelers stuck with their young receiver, and he had a monster follow-up to his rookie season as he finished with an 88-923-7 line on a team high 144 targets. Johnson became this team's No.1 option, but with Smith-Schuster returning, Claypool lurking, and the Steelers likely to use more two-tight end sets to support the running game, Johnson is going to find it tough to improve upon his 2020 numbers. The 144 targets which were 6th most in the NFL among receivers will be nearly impossible to replicate, which means the yards and touchdowns will have to increase for Johnson to be more than a mid-tier WR2. As with JuJu, baring a repeat implosion of the backfield and defense, there is just no way the Steelers throw the ball 656 times again. If he can manage to trim the drops down, he did leave a bunch of stats on the field, and his talent and upside should give him a chance to win you a week or two.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Diontae Johnson off the Covid list
Placed on the list Thursday
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Jan 7, 3:03 pm

Pittburgh Steelers
The #Steelers have officially activated WR Diontae Johnson from the COVID-19 reserve list. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Johnson was placed on the Covid list just yesterday and now removed a little over 24 hours later. He'll resume his role as the top option for Ben Roethlisberger in Pittsburgh's version of the horizontal raid.


Injury Diontae Johnson lands on Covid list
Unlikely to play in Week 18
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Jan 6, 12:03 pm

Pittburgh Steelers
#Steelers announce that Diontae Johnson, their best wide receiver, and Kendrick Green, the rookie center, are both on the COVID list. Pittsburgh is at the #Ravens Sunday. (Aditi Kinkhabwala on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Johnson will have a hard time getting cleared for the Steelers final game of the season against the Ravens. If he misses, we could see more targets for Ray-Ray McCloud in the short area of the field.


Injury Ben Roethlisberger placed on Covid-19 list, Out Week 10
Mason Rudolph will start
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Nov 13, 8:00 pm

Pittburgh Steelers
Ben Roethlisberger is being placed on the Reserve-COVID list and is out Sunday vs. Lions. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The NFL Covid protocols strike again. Mason Rudolph will step in for Big-Ben against the Lions. He played in Week 17 last year going 22-39, 315-2-1 against the Browns. You can argue that Rudolph isn't much of a downgrade from Roethlisberger thought Diontae Johnson and TE Pat Freiermuth probably carry a little more risk in Week 10.
