2020 Half PPR Rest of Season Rankings
JuJu Smith-Schuster Note

Smith-Schuster saw only six targets against the Giants but caught all six and turned two of them into touchdowns. Although Ben Roethlisberger looked rusty to start, once he found his groove, the entire Steelers offense looked strong, including Smith-Schuster. He looks likely to justify his status as a borderline WR1 coming into the season, with upside for even more.

Diontae Johnson Note

Judging from the questions I received from a lot of Johnson managers last week, they still weren't convinced Johnson was a must-start. Now, after a two-target, zero-reception performance, they're surely going to be questioning him, though it wasn't his fault, as he suffered a concussion. He should have time to get through the protocol and be ready for next week's matchup. Reach out to see what it would take to acquire what might be the Steelers No. 1 receiver.

James Washington Note

Throw out everything that happened for any Steelers receiver in 2019. The combination of Mason Rudolph and Devlin Hodges would (and did) sink any pass-catcher they came across. With Ben Roethlisberger back under center, there's some optimism as a vertical threat, but he's certainly been passed by Diontae Johnson in terms of "breakout Steelers receivers." With Chase Claypool also in tow, Washington's chances of fantasy relevancy seem dim, and he's more of a "handcuff" receiver to Johnson and JuJu Smith-Schuster.
