Fantasy Impact:

Johnson hasn’t received full clearance yet to begin training, but he told reporters that he’ll get it “in the next couple days.” The second-year WR is primed to make a splash this season working with QB Ben Roethlisberger. Johnson had a great rookie season with subpar quarterback play, catching 59 balls for 680 yards and five TDs on 92 targets. While currently ranked as the #47 WR in FantasyPros expert consensus rankings, Johnson has been identified by many in the fantasy industry as a break-out candidate for the upcoming season. Target him as a potential fringe-WR3.
