Despite missing one full game and a large portion of another, Johnson finished with 144 targets in 2020, which ranked sixth among wide receivers. Unfortunately, he was not particularly efficient with them, averaging just 6.4 yards per target. Part of his issues were drops, but Ben Roethlisberger's drop-down mentality certainly didn't help, either. Still, chasing targets at wide receiver is never a bad thing. If Johnson would've averaged just 7.4 yards per target (easily attainable), he would've finished as the WR14. He should be a safe high-floor WR2 with upside for top-12 numbers.

Diontae Johnson tops 100 yards in playoff loss

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson caught 11-of-16 targets for 117 yards in a 48-37 playoff loss to the Browns on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson finished second on the team in receiving. The second-year wideout emerged as a legitimate force in fantasy this season and could have an even bigger year in 2021 with JuJu Smith-Schuster set to become a free-agent this offseason.
