Fantasy Impact:

The Steelers haven't had the best start to the season, particularly with their offense. However, Johnson is a lucrative fantasy wide receiver, commanding a 30.6% target share that ranks sixth-best in the league. Continue monitoring Johnson's status on Thursday and Friday, as he continues to suffer from a knee injury he sustained during the final play of Pittsburgh's Week 2 loss against the Raiders. If Johnson cannot play, Chase Claypool and JuJu Smith-Schuster both become high-end WR2 options at home against the Bengals in Week 3.
