Did you know there wasn't a single game in 2019 where Sterling Shepard, Golden Tate, Slayton, Evan Engram, and Saquon Barkley were on the field together? That's an issue for Slayton's projection in 2020, as he's clearly the fourth or fifth option in the pass-attack. Add in the inconsistency of Daniel Jones, and you have yourself a very high-risk wide receiver who's being taken over some valuable commodities.He could be one of the biggest steals in fantasy football, period. Despite being thrown to by Devlin Hodges and Mason Rudolph, Johnson was able to post WR2 or better numbers in 31.3 percent of his games as a rookie in 2019. Now getting Ben Roethlisberger back under center, he might just explode. Don't forget that there were room for two top-tier receivers with Roethlisberger under center.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Darius Slayton had a strong debut season but his fantasy stock was overly boosted by his suprising 8 TDs. Massive regression is coming in an offence that now boasts a healthy Barkley, Engram, Tate and Shepard, something that was never true last season. He's a strong upside pick if everything goes right but not my preferred choice of target.Diontae Johnson was one of my favourite deep sleepers going into last season and he didn't disappoint. With Big Ben back, there's a good chance he builds on his progress and while a healthy JuJu and the addition of Chase Claypool will have an impact, Johnson is still a very good option in the double digit rounds if you want to back the Steelers passing game. I do.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Drafting Slayton in 2020 is a bit of a gamble. He was terrific last season, but the rest of the receiving options on the Giants were never fully healthy all at the same time. The Giants are still going to air the ball out a ton this season, but Slayton's going to have to see one or two other receivers miss significant time for him to see the target totals necessary.The Steelers offense is going to be much improved over what they displayed last season. Big Ben should be looking Johnson's way regularly and he could be in line for a big season. He's currently sitting at WR45 in ADP and that's an absolute steal.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
With Daniel Jones at QB and Evan Engram playing, Darius Slayton averaged just 3.83 targets per game and never eclipsed a 13.8% target share in a single game. @ConnorAllenNFLYAC/Rec was 5.1. Similar to Diggs, Sutton, Metcalf. YAC/Target was 3.2. Which was the same as Tyreek Hill. Drop rate was the 3.3%. Which was also similar to Tyreek, Kupp, Kirk, Tate. True catch rate was 88.1%. Same as Nuk Hopkins. @Kyle_FFRecon x
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
 Johnson is going to be a trendy breakout pick this year, considering he managed to find success as a part-time player with continually sub-par quarterbacks throwing him the ball. Despite that, Johnson was the 40th-ranked wide receiver in standard scoring formats. An elite route-runner, Johnson now has the chance to blossom into a reliable starting wide receiver with Ben Roethlisberger back throwing him the ball. Still, Johnson is more of an upside play, and should be drafted as a bench receiver with a high ceiling.
Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
 Big Ben is "back" and Diontae should be the clear #2 option for him. Up.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
I think he's less likely to take a value hit if targets get squeezed versus some of his slot friends..It doesn't tell the whole story but he led the team in targets with 92 as a rookie.
