WR - PIT
Week 7 Outlook
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson caught 9-of-13 targets for 71 yards and tacked on a 25-yard rush in a 23-20 overtime win over Seattle in Week 6.
Johnson surprisingly saw just two targets against the Broncos in the previous week but he was back to his usual ways in leading the Steelers in targets in Week 6. Johnson heads into his bye in Week 7 with 34 catches for 376 yards and three touchdowns despite missing a game. He will face the Browns in Week 8 after the bye.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson caught both of his targets for 72 yards and a touchdown in a 27-19 win over the Broncos in Week 5.
Johnson got off to a fast start, catching a 50-yard touchdown on the first drive of the game. He only caught one more ball the rest of the way, finishing with a season-low two targets after reaching double digits in that category in his other three games. Johnson will be a high-end WR2 in Week 6 against Seattle.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson caught 9-of-13 targets for 92 yards and a touchdown in a 27-17 loss to the Packers in Week 4.

The veteran wideout's touchdown came on a 45-yard pass in the first quarter as he led the Steelers in receiving in the loss. Johnson has seen double-digit targets in all three of his games and has scored twice over that span. He will be a WR2 in Week 5 against the Broncos.
Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (knee) was removed from the team's Week 4 injury report.

Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson (knee) practiced in full on Thursday.
Johnson did not play in Week 3 and was limited in practice on Wednesday, so Thursday's upgrade in status is certainly good news. He falls into the WR2 category against the Packers and could even see an increased workload if JuJu Smith-Schuster (ribs) or Chase Claypool (hamstring) are unable to suit up.
