Johnson has played in nine games so far this season and he is currently averaging 10.33 targets, 6.55 receptions, 79.33 receiving yards, and .44 touchdowns per contest. He is one of the most consistent fantasy assets at the WR position and he is someone that fantasy managers should feel extremely comfortable plugging into their lineups every single week. Did you know that Johnson has yet to see more than 13 targets in any single game so far this season? However, he has seen exactly 13 targets in 5 of his 9 games played. Looking forward to Week 12, the Bengals are a top-8 unit in defending opposing WRs from a fantasy standpoint, but Johnson comes with such a high floor that it doesn't really make much of a difference. Fire up Johnson as a low-end WR1 with confidence.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson led the Steelers in all receiving categories in yet another big performance. The veteran wideout has been heavily targeted in 2021, having notched double-digit targets in seven of nine games. He will be a low-end WR1 in Week 12 against the Bengals.
