WR - PIT
Week 13 Outlook
Diontae Johnson caught four of his five targets for 33 yards and a touchdown in a 24-10 loss to the Cardinals in Week 13.
Johnson scored the Steelers' only touchdown of the afternoon on a two-yard pass from Mitch Trubisky with 4:30 left in the fourth quarter. The goes as Johnson's second TD of the season after he didn't score at all in 2022. He will be a low-end WR2 in Week 14 against the Patriots.
Diontae Johnson caught 4-of-8 targets for 50 yards in the Steelers’ 16-10 win over the Bengals.
Johnson saw the second most targets of any Steelers’ pass catcher Sunday. With a new offensive play caller, the Steelers’ offense turned in their highest yardage total of the season. Johnson and the Steelers will look to get their eighth win of the season in Week 13 when they play Arizona.
Diontae Johnson caught 2-of-8 targets for 16 yards in the Steelers’ 13-10 loss to the Browns.
Johnson led the team in targets Sunday, but could not do much with them as the Steelers’ passing attack struggled against a strong Browns’ defense. The 27-year-old has just three receptions over the last two weeks. Johnson and the Steelers will look to turn it around against the Bengals in Week 12.
Diontae Johnson caught just one of his four targets for 17 yards in a 23-19 win over the Packers in Week 10.
Johnson turned in a rare quiet game as he's usually a lock for close to double-digit targets and at least five catches most weeks. That being said, the Steelers got 183 combined rushing yards from Najee Harris and Jaylen Warren, so they didn't need to rely on the passing game in the win. Johnson will be a WR3 in a tough matchup against the Browns in Week 11.
Diontae Johnson hauled in 7 of 9 targets for 90 yards and touchdown in Thursday night's 20-16 win over the Titans.
Johnson confirmed his WR1 status in the Steelers' passing game Thursday night. QB Kenny Pickett looked Johnson's way with nearly a third of his passes, and the two were certainly on the same page, as they have been over the last three games. In that stretch, Johnson has caught 20 passes (29 targets) for 254 yards and one touchdown. Thursday's TD grab ended a stretch of 21 games without one for Johnson.
