  • Diontae Johnson A Flex Option In Week 12

    Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson is still looking for his first touchdown of the 2022 NFL season. Johnson will look to change that in Week 12's Monday night game against the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts have been tough on receivers in fantasy as they are allowing the fewest fantasy points per game to the position thus far. Johnson has not shown much of a ceiling at all in 2022 as the offense has been running through Pat Freiermuth and George Pickens most weeks. Johnson sets up as a low-upside flex option in fantasy for Week 12.

  • Diontae Johnson Goes For Just 21 Yards In Week 11

    Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson caught four of his five targets for just 21 yards in a 37-30 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 11 while adding one yard on his lone carry. Johnson continues to struggle in the 2022 version of the Pittsburgh offense as he has yet to score a touchdown on the year and has only gone over 42 yards twice in his past seven games. It was bad enough in Week 11 that he finished behind Gunner Olszewski in receiving yardage. Now just a low-upside WR4 for fantasy, Johnson will take on the Indianapolis Colts on the road in Week 12.

  • Diontae Johnson A Flex Play In Week 11 Vs. Bengals

    Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson finished with 63 receiving yards in Week 10, his second-best total of the 2022 season. Johnson is drawing plenty of targets, averaging 9.0 per game, but he hasn't been very efficient with his looks this season and has yet to score a touchdown. He will look to break out in a home game against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 11. The Bengals represent a tough matchup for receivers as they are allowing the eighth-fewest fantasy points per game to the position thus far in 2022. Johnson managed seven catches for 55 yards back when these two teams met in Week 1 and can be deployed as a mid-range WR3/flex option in Week 11.

  • Diontae Johnson Leads Steelers In Receiving Vs. Saints

    Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson caught four of his five targets for 63 yards in a 20-10 win over the New Orleans Saints in Week 10. Johnson's 63 receiving yards wound up leading the team while his five targets were second. The veteran wideout hauled in a 36-yard reception in the contest to help buoy his final stat line.

He will be a WR3 in Week 11's divisional matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals.

  • Diontae Johnson A WR3 In Week 10

    Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson will take on the New Orleans Saints at home heading into Week 10. Johnson should be well-rested after his bye in Week 9. The veteran wideout has been seeing plenty of targets this season, averaging 9.5 per game, but his yardage totals have been lacking most weeks. The Saints represent a neutral matchup for wideouts as they are allowing the 15th-most fantasy points per game to the position through nine games. Johnson has the potential to have a big game thanks to his high target volume but he should still be treated as a WR3 moving forward, at least until he shows more production on the field.
