2022 Outlook
Depth Chart
By most metrics, Dionte Johnson was one of the best receivers in the NFL last season. His 169 targets and 107 receptions both placed him in the top-5, and his 1,161 yards were good for 9th. He even capped his career year by cutting down on the "dropsies" that had plagued his early career. Another middle-round receiver gem the Steelers have uncovered; the ascending Johnson enters the eve of a big free agency payday having to adjust to the first non-Roethlisberger quarterback of his career. Johnson and Roethlisberger were locked in last season, as the quick twitch receiver finished 6th in the NFL in yards-after-catch. Quarterback chemistry has been a big part of Johnson's career success, as Big Ben sat in the pocket and delivered on-time, accurate throws. There is going to be an adjustment period with Ben gone and Trubisky and Pickett having different styles. If Claypool can rebound off a down year, and 2nd round rookie George Pickens makes a quick adjustment, the ball is sure to be spread a bit thinner this year. With enough factors working against him, look for Johnson to fall back into the upper-WR2 tier in 2022.

Injury Diontae Johnson dealing with hip issue
Hip flexor injury
By: Doug Orth | Mon Aug 8, 11:55 pm

Mike Tomlin said that Diontae Johnson is working through a hip flexor. (ESPN - Brooke Pryor)

FFToday's Take: Tomlin added that he hopes Johnson is day-to-day with the injury. This could be a wait-and-see situation as hip flexors can be tricky. If healthy, Johnson is expected to once again command a target share north of 20 percent. The hope this year is that he will get a small upgrade at quarterback after he was attached to the aging Ben Roethlisberger last season. The arrival of George Pickens could change things a bit for Johnson, but he should still be considered a strong WR2 option in fantasy.
