Diontae Johnson traded to the Panthers

The Pittsburgh Steelers have traded Diontae Johnson to the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson has a $3 million roster bonus due Friday that the Panthers now will pay. He had been in the trade rumors as of late and now lands in Carolina. Johnson joins Adam Thielen and D.J. Chark among a couple others in the wide receiver room with Carolina.

Diontae Johnson catches four passes in Week 17

Diontae Johnson caught 4-of-4 targets for 76 yards in the Steelers' 30-23 win over the Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson was the safety blanket a few times for Mason Rudolph on the afternoon. He will remain in the WR2/WR3 conversation if Rudolph sees another start.

Diontae Johnson held to two catches in Week 16

Diontae Johnson caught two of his five targets for 15 yards in a 34-11 win over the Bengals in Week 16.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson was uncharacteristically quiet in the win as the two catches were his lowest total since back in Week 11 against the Browns. Johnson now has 43 catches and four touchdowns in 11 games this season. He will be a high-end WR3 in Week 17 against the Seahawks.

Diontae Johnson finds end zone in loss Saturday

Diontae Johnson caught 4-of-6 targets for 62 yards and a touchdown in Pittsburgh's 30-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Pittsburgh's offense as a whole was ineffective on Saturday, but Johnson was an exception to that. He led the team in receiving yards with 62 and was able to get in the end zone in what turned out to be a loss to the Colts. He's shown some promise for fantasy purposes but shouldn't be relied on as a major contributor moving forward.

Diontae Johnson practices in full Thursday, off report

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Diontae Johnson, who was dealing with a knee injury, practiced in full on Thursday and is off the team's injury report for Saturday's contest.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson was a surprise DNP on Wednesday, the second day of practice, but he returned to full participation the next day. Without even a questionable tag, confidence can be had in Johnson's status who — despite the continued offensive struggles — has consecutive weeks with touchdowns (seven catches, 90 yards over that span).
