It was all David Johnson for the Texans in Week 2, as he totaled all 15 opportunities for the Texans running backs. It didn't amount to much, as he tallied just 50 scoreless yards against a stingy Baltimore defense. That matchup likely primed him for this one, as the Steelers have been the worst matchup for running backs since the start of 2019. Here's a fun fact: You'd have to go all the way back to Week 16 of 2018 to find the last time they allowed a top-12 performance to a running back. That's 19 straight games without allowing a running back to finish as an RB1. It's not due to a lack of trying, either, as the Steelers faced the ninth-most running back touches in 2019. Over their last 18 games, running backs have averaged a miniscule 0.65 PPR points per opportunity (carries and targets). Think about how good that is... even if Johnson were to get 20 touches, their average performance would give him 13.0 PPR points. Johnson is just a low-end RB2/high-end RB3 who you're hoping finds the end zone similar to Melvin Gordon last week. Duke Johnson was reportedly close to playing last week and will put a dent into David's workload, though not enough to make Duke a viable fantasy option, especially in this game.Don't hit the panic button on Woods after his weak outing against the revamped Eagles secondary. He did manage to sneak in a rushing touchdown to ensure he didn't completely bust, but five targets isn't ideal. Still, it's one game. That was the first time he hasn't seen at least eight targets in a game since back in Week 8 of last year. The Bills are likely going to use Tre'Davious White to shadow Woods while he's on the perimeter, which is where he runs his routes about 55 percent of the time. He's one of the best cornerbacks in football and has allowed just a 54.1 percent catch rate over the course of his career, and that's while often shadowing opposing No. 1 receivers. There have been 17 wide receivers who've seen eight or more targets against the Bills over their last 18 games, but only five of them have scored more than 16 PPR points, which is middling WR2 territory most of the time. Of those five wide receivers, four of them were slot-heavy receivers (Jamison Crowder three times, Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker). You need to keep expectations in check for Woods this week, as he's likely a low-end WR2 for this one. He can still do some damage during that 45 percent slot usage.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Steelers are 5th against fantasy running backs, Johnson is a low-upside boom / bust flex option in a brutal matchup.The Bills are 14th against fantasy wide receivers, Woods is a low-upside WR3 that is playing on a team that runs the ball as much as any team in the NFL and will probably target Cooper Kupp more in the slot this week.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
David Johnson had an extremely tough matchup last week and it showed on the final stat sheet. Johnson was held to only 34 yards on the ground and he did little through the air. This week, Johnson gets another tough matchup against a stout Steelers defense that is unlikely to give DJ much room on the ground. Johnson's a low-end RB2/high-end RB3 in this matchup.Woods didn't see a ton of opportunity in week two, but he still delivered by finding the end zone with a rushing score. This is another tough matchup for Woods, who should draw coverage from Tre'Davious White, but he still belongs in your starting lineup as a high-end WR2.

11 caries and 4 targets in each game so far. I expect Pit to hold him to his floor this week.
