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.
