Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He's now seen 31.5 percent of Ben Roethlisberger's targets, a number that ranks second in the NFL among wide receivers. He's made them count, too, racking up 14 catches for 149 yards and a touchdown through two games. By comparison, in Antonio Brown's final season with the Steelers, he saw a 24.8 percent target share. It's possible that Johnson's the wide receiver to own in Pittsburgh, though there's obviously room for both of them to be fantasy starters. The Texans secondary is nothing to be worried about, though they've surprisingly held every receiver on the Chiefs and Ravens to less than 85 yards. With that being said, the only player who saw more than six targets was Sammy Watkins, who turned in a 21.2 PPR-point performance. The mix of Vernon Hargreaves and Lonnie Johnson will be asked to slow down Johnson, and I'm not sure they're capable, as that duo has allowed 246-of-351 passing for 3,152 yards and 20 touchdowns in their coverage. That's a 70.1 percent completion rate, 12.8 yards per reception, and a touchdown every 17.6 targets. Start Johnson as a WR2 as long as he's getting the targets.So much for those Snell hopes and dreams on the waiver wire, eh? I figured they'd give Conner another chance and he played well, compiling 121 total yards and a touchdown on 18 touches while Snell totaled exactly one yard on his four touches. This is Conner's backfield, but the Steelers will show no hesitance no move away from him if he's inefficient or dealing with an injury. There was no team in the NFL who allowed more fantasy points on the ground than the Texans last year, and it wasn't all that close, as the Chiefs were a full 16 PPR points behind them at No. 2. It wasn't just on the ground, either. They allowed a massive 1.98 PPR points per target through the air, which ranked second to only the Dolphins. When you have those numbers combined with a running back who'll likely see 18-plus opportunities, it's a recipe for big success. Both the Chiefs and Ravens rushed for more than 160 yards in their matchups against them, so there's little reason to doubt the Steelers backs. Play Conner as a low-end RB1 and as long as he stays upright, he should crush this matchup.

Johnson leads the Steelers with 23 targets on the season, he did not practice on Wednesday, but he should play and be a WR2 against a struggling Texans offense. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Is there a real possibility that Johnson has emerged as the Steelers' WR1? The target totals would suggest that the answer to that question is yes. Through two games, Johnson has seen 23 targets to Juju's 14. Johnson is now solidifying himself as a weekly must-start option and Big Ben should be looking his way often in this matchup. Johnson has top-15 upside this week and should be played everywhere that you've got him.While Snell looked great in week one, any hope that fantasy managers had of him breaking out this season has been laid to rest. He's the clear handcuff for Conner in Pittsburgh, but nothing more at this point.
