Pittsburgh Steelers
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Despite a poor performance at the Combine, Johnson has the tools to make an impact with the Steelers as a depth receiver/returner. He actually had a faster time in the forty (4.53) than Antonio Brown (4.56) and is now in line to compete with Eli Rogers and Ryan Switzer for slot work. He could also add value on special teams, having led the nation in punt return average (19.9) at the collegiate level the past two years, while scoring four times on kick or punt returns.

Quiet passing game overall
WRPittsburgh Steelers
October 13, 2019
Johnson caught two passes (two targets) for 14 yards in Sunday's 24-17 victory over the Chargers.
ANALYSIS
Coach Mike Tomlin handled third-string quarterback Devlin Hodges with kid gloves, which hindered the entire Pittsburgh receiving corps as a whole despite picking up the victory. Johnson was averaging 5.8 targets per game prior to Sunday's dud, so his role should return to normal once Mason Rudolph (concussion) returns to action. With a bye week coming up for Week 7, Johnson has a good chance to get his usual (backup) quarterback back under center in a tasty matchup against the Dolphins come Week 8.
