Expert 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
This Steelers offense isn't exactly one that we would all call "high-powered", but that doesn't matter much for Johnson's fantasy outlook. He's finished as a top-20 option each of his past four games that he's played and the target volume is among the best in the NFL at the WR position. The Browns have struggled to contain opposing WRs so far this season and Johnson should see plenty of work yet again in this one. He can be viewed as a mid-range WR2 with upside. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Johnson was the 7th ranked fantasy wide receiver averaging 16.0 fantasy points per game from Week 4 to Week 6. He should be a WR2 on the road against a Browns team that is 24th against fantasy wide receivers.Sutton had been a WR2 for Week 5 & 6 before the entire Broncos offense struggled at Cleveland in Week 7. He should rebound against a Washington D that is 32nd against fantasy wide receivers.
