There were extremely high expectations for Diontae Johnson heading into this season. In most fantasy leagues, Johnson was the first Steeler receiver drafted. If he can stay healthy, he will a monstrous season for Pittsburgh.
Fantasy Football analysis: Steelers WR Diontae Johnson
Johnson caught five passes for 36 yards and a touchdown in the Steelers’ Week 1 matchup against the Bills. In Week 2, Johnson bounced back with nine receptions for 105 yards. After reaggravating a knee injury late in the Raiders game, he was forced to miss their Week 3 matchup with the Bengals. It is looking like he will play during Week 4 however.
Green Bay’s passing defense has actually been decent this season. With Kevin King dealing with a concussion, it has been reported he could miss this weekend's game. That could be extremely important for this Steelers’ offense. While Ben Roethlisberger has played poorly this season, I expect to see him get Johnson involved a ton.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Although their passing game has struggled, Johnson should start this week.
