Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
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at WR45 in ADP and that's an absolute steal.Washington's had the opportunity the past couple of seasons, but he's now been replaced by Chase Claypool in this offense. The Steelers needed a big-bodied WR on the outside to allow Juju to move back into the slot, which relegates Washington to a backup role. Washington's nothing more than a hold on deep rosters.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
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.Has everyone given up on James Washington too early? He quietly led the Steelers receivers in yards (735) last year despite trailing Diontae Johnson by 12 targets. His 9.2 yards per target was also much higher than JuJu Smith-Schuster's 7.8 yards per target. The issue is that the Steelers drafted another perimeter option in Chase Claypool, and it seems unlikely that they send Johnson back to the bench. Washington will be battling with Claypool for the No. 3 job in the offense, which will have streaming appeal.

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 
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.Throw out everything that happened for any Steelers receiver in 2019. The combination of Mason Rudolph and Devlin Hodges would (and did) sink any pass-catcher they came across. With Ben Roethlisberger back under center, there's some optimism as a vertical threat, but he's certainly been passed by Diontae Johnson in terms of "breakout Steelers receivers." With Chase Claypool also in tow, Washington's chances of fantasy relevancy seem dim, and he's more of a "handcuff" receiver to Johnson and JuJu Smith-Schuster.

Big Ben is "back" and Diontae should be the clear #2 option for him. Up.

It doesn't tell the whole story but he led the team in targets with 92 as a rookie.
