Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson was able to get a full practice in Wednesday, per Mark Kaboly. Johnson was forced from their Week 5 game against the with a back injury and then was unable to play last week. Johnson has had trouble staying on the field this season, which has helped Chase Claypool see an increase in work and production.

At this point, as long as Johnson returns this week, which it looks like he will, picking fantasy receivers from Pittsburgh is tough. But, I’m going to go with the hot hand and play Claypool over JuJu Smith-Schuster, James Washington and Johnson until we see Johnson stay healthy and Smith-Schuster get targets. But having them all healthy would make it riskier to play any of them.
