It wasn't the greatest game for Johnson, as he had two clear drops against the Ravens, but the one that matters stayed consistent. He saw a team-high 13 targets, bringing his total over the last four games to an astonishing 50 targets, or 12.5 per game. This should be interesting to see how the Steelers receivers fare in this matchup, as the Football Team has allowed just 1.63 PPR points per target to wide receivers, which is the fifth-lowest mark in the league. If you were to look at the combined performances of their opponent's WR1, WR2, WR3, and TE1 totals against them, you'd see that they have not combined to score more than 48.3 PPR points in any of their last 10 games. The competition has not been top notch, but that's an impressive stretch for any team against any opponent. The only teams who've allowed fewer points per game to skill-position players are the 49ers, Rams, and Steelers. Even adjusting for schedule, this is the fourth-toughest matchup in football, as opposing wide receivers have averaged 4.9 fewer PPR points against them than they've averaged on the year. Still, Johnson is continually seeing double-digit targets, which make him a must-start. If we look at the five wide receivers who've had nine-plus targets against Washington, four of them finished as top-24 options with three of them scoring 17.5-plus PPR points. Johnson isn't a can't-miss play this week, but he's worthy of a mid-to-low-end WR2 start.

Diontae Johnson catches eight passes

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson caught 8-of-13 targets for 46 yards in a 19-14 win over the Ravens in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson's total yardage wasn't great but he led the way with 13 targets. It had the potential to have been a much bigger game for Johnson, who dropped several catchable balls, including one near the goal line that likely would have resulted in a touchdown. He will be a WR2 in Week 13 against Washington.
