Since Chase Claypool's departure, Johnson has a 19.4% target share, 28.6% end zone target share, and 28.7% air yard share. Johnson is still searching for his first touchdown and top-20 wide receiver finish of the season. Johnson has been incredibly inefficient with his volume this year. He's eighth in targets and 21st in target share but ranks 95th in fantasy points per target, 80th in yards per route run, and 77th in fantasy points per route run. These are laughably bad numbers. The team has tried forcing volume down his throat in high-leverage situations as well as he ranks 18th in deep targets and ninth in red zone targets. Nothing has worked. Could he pop off with a big game in Week 13? Sure, he's WELL past due for one. Is it something you should count on in a pivotal week in fantasy? No. Johnson is a WR3/4 that will run about 85% of his routes against A.J. Terrell (65.9% catch rate, 126.7 passer rating) and Darren Hall (73.1% catch rate, 140.4 passer rating).

Diontae Johnson catches five balls in Week 13

Diontae Johnson caught five of his 11 targets for 60 yards in a 19-16 win over the Falcons in Week 13.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson led the Steelers in targets and finished second in receiving in his most productive fantasy outing in almost two months. With rookie Kenny Pickett under center, the veteran wideout has not been the consistent PPR force that he was the previous two seasons, leaving him as a WR4 for Week 14 against the Ravens.
