Instant Fantasy Analysis - WR Diontae Johnson, Steelers

Recommended Posts

It should come as no surprise that Pittsburgh took a receiver that compares favorably to Emmanuel Sanders. Johnson doesn't possess great size (5-10, 183) but is another in a long line of Steeler draft picks at receiver who excels in the return game. Johnson is a twitchy receiver whose size may force the Steelers to use him in the slot and push JuJu Smith-Schuster outside on a more regular basis. On the downside, he tends to freelance on his routes and has much work to do as a route-runner. Fantasy owners need to pay attention anytime Pittsburgh drafts a receiver, and it's not as if James Washington was so impressive as a rookie that he locked down a starting job in 2019. He is definitely a wild-card that owners need to consider in the later rounds of redraft leagues, and there is much more reason to like him in rookie drafts. He could very well be a potential value pickĀ in the second round.
