Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
 I keep moving him up. As long as Ben is healthy, Diontae could find himself in the WR2 range this season.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
When doing the "Boom, Bust, and Everything In Between" series, I can't help but notice how undervalued Jones is nearly every season. The "bust" score is anything less than 8.0 PPR points. Jones busted just 23.1 percent in 2019, the 22nd lowest mark among wide receivers. He was at just 22.2 percent in 2018, the 25th lowest mark. And lastly, he was at just 18.8 percent in 2017, the ninth-lowest mark. Meanwhile, he'll give you big games here and there while not completely tanking your team. If you want to wait at wide receiver in your draft and play him as your WR3, it's not that bad.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.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Jones is the poster boy for being undervalued in fantasy circles. If you look at his last 16 games, Jones has 78 catches for 1,017 yards and 11 touchdowns, comparable numbers to Kenny Golladay who is valued as a WR1. He also has the potential to be an impact fantasy player if Golladay were to get injured. Even if not, Jones's steady numbers are worthy of starting as a WR3, and he's the type of boring player who doesn't excite you during draft day, but who ultimately is an integral part of winning rosters.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.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Marvin Jones remains amazing value as the Lions WR2 is available in the 9th round of drafts despite showing massive upside with Matthew Stafford fit. While injuries will remain an issue for the aging WR, he has little competition for the job and is a lot closer to Golladay in opportunity than most realise.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
Jones finished last season as a top-30 WR and he's currently being drafted as the WR39 in ADP Consensus. Jones is a solid candidate to outperform his ADP this season and he's super cheap in drafts right now. He's someone who would be a perfect WR3/FLEX option for your fantasy football roster.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
 YAC/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
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
Hasn't been able to stay healthy the last 2 years but all he does is put up a 60/900/5 season every year he's healthy. A low upside flex play.It doesn't tell the whole story but he led the team in targets with 92 as a rookie.
