Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (hip) practiced fully on Friday and doesn't appear on the final injury report ahead of Week 18 vs. the Browns. Though the veteran has scored nary a TD this season, Johnson's team-high 26.2% target share (8.5 targets per game) makes him a quality WR3/flex option on volume alone. This should serve as a good counterbalance to the Browns' defense ranking as the 6th-toughest matchup in adjusted fantasy points allowed to WRs.

Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (hip) practiced fully on Thursday. The veteran wideout was listed as a non-participant in Wednesday's estimation, so this is great news for his availability for Week 18 vs. the Browns. We'll keep an eye out in case something changes on tomorrow's report.

Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (hip) did not practice on Wednesday. There's still plenty of time between now and Sunday's Week 18 game vs. the Browns for the veteran to ramp up activity. We'll know more about whether or not he's at risk of missing action as the week unfolds. Check back for updates in the coming days

Steelers TE Pat Freiermuth logged 3 receptions on 6 targets for 36 yards, leading all pass-catchers in Week 17 vs. the Ravens. WR Diontae Johnson wasn't too far behind with 35 yards and 2 catches on 7 targets. Sunday's win came mainly through the efforts of the Steelers' rushing attack and defensive contributions. This game wasn't a banner day for anyone whose primary responsibility is catching the ball. Week 18 will give this group an opportunity to bounce back in a fairly neutral matchup vs. the Browns.

Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (toe) practiced fully again on Friday. It's expected he'll be ready to go for Sunday night vs. the Ravens in Week 17. Consider Johnson a WR3/flex option this week. He's been frustrating all season and has yet to find the end zone, but the target volume will assuredly be there for Johnson. His 130 targets rank 7th among all WRs in 2022.

Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (toe) upgraded to full practice participation on Thursday. He's trending in the right direction to play in Sunday night's Week 17 showdown vs. the Ravens. We'll let you know about his status on the final injury report tomorrow.

Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (toe) logged limited practice on Wednesday. The veteran wideout played through this injury last week. We'll see if it prevents him from suiting up on Sunday night vs. the Ravens in Week 17. Come back tomorrow for an update.

Steelers TE Pat Freiermuth tallied 7 catches for 66 yards among 8 targets in Saturday night's win over the Raiders. The numbers marked a big rebound from his target-less Week 15 at Carolina. It was Freiermuth's most targets and receptions since Week 11. The TE trailed only RB Najee Harris in targets for the game. WR Diontae Johnson added 5-64 receiving on 7 looks. WR George Pickens caught all 5 of his targets for 57 yards and the go-ahead TD. Pittsburgh gets a Week 17 rematch with Baltimore, which has played the run much tougher than the pass for most of the season.

Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (toe) is active for tonight’s game against Vegas. Johnson missed practice Wednesday and Thursday, but he’s healthy enough to play alongside a returning Kenny Pickett (concussion). We project Johnson in WR3 range.

Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (toe) didn't practice again on Thursday and is now listed as questionable for Week 16 vs. Raiders. This is certainly not great news for a player who opened the week with limited participation. It's not looking great for his availability for Saturday's game. With kickoff set for primetime at night, it might be a good idea to make other plans at WR.

Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (toe) did not practice on Wednesday after logging a limited practice the day before. This downward trend does not bode well for his availability for Saturday's Week 16 game vs. the Raiders. Let's see what happens tomorrow before any advice starts flying around. Stay tuned.

Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (toe) is listed as a limited practice on Tuesday’s injury report. Today will be a good indicator of his potential availability for Saturday’s Week 16 showdown against the Raiders. We’ll keep an eye out on this front.

Steelers QB Kenny Pickett (concussion) will start this weekend's game vs. the Raiders, HC Mike Tomlin said Tuesday. It sounds like Pickett still has 1 more step to pass protocol, so we'll keep an eye on his practice participation this week. Vegas ranks 30th in adjusted fantasy points allowed to QBs, but Pickett hasn't shown enough this season to be more than a mid-range QB2 for Week 16.

Steelers WR Diontae Johnson caught all 10 of his targets for 98 yards in Sunday's win over the Panthers. He drew 45.5% of QB Mitchell Trubisky's pass attempts, tallying 58.8% of the team's receptions and 54.7% of the yards. He was the only Steeler to catch more than 2 passes. WR George Pickens checked in next with 2 catches for 53 yards among 5 targets. WR Steven Sims was the only other Pittsburgh player to see more than 1 target. We'll see whether QB Kenny Pickett can make it back for Week 16.

The Steelers downgraded QB Kenny Pickett (concussed) to out for Sunday's game vs. the Panthers and announced that QB Mitchell Trubisky will. Trubisky is a bottom-barrel QB2 but might be good news for WR Diontae Johnson, who drew a 27% target share from Trubisky last week and a 32% share with Trubisky over the first 3 weeks of the season.

Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (hip) isn’t listed on the final Week 15 injury report. He didn’t practice on Thursday but returned to a limited workout on Friday. Johnson went through the same routine last week before playing his usual role in the loss to Baltimore. We’re expecting the same in Sunday’s game vs. Carolina.

Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (hip) did not practice on Thursday. He also sat out last Thursday before playing his usual role in the loss to the Ravens. We're expecting Johnson to be fine for this weekend's game vs. the Panthers, but check back tomorrow for another update on his status.

Steelers WR Diontae Johnson remained allergic to the end zone in Sunday's loss to the Ravens. He did lead the team in targets (8), receptions (6) and receiving yards (82). TE Pat Freiermuth followed with 6 targets, catching 3 for 33 yards and a TD. WR George Pickens drew just 3 looks -- tied with 2 others for 4th -- but caught all 3 for 78 yards. Pittsburgh heads to Carolina in Week 15, likely without QB Kenny Pickett (concussion).

Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (hip) has been removed from the Week 14 injury report and will play vs. the Ravens on Sunday. He got in just limited practices on Wednesday and Friday this week, so it's safe to assume that he won't be at 100% tomorrow. Johnson is a weak WR3 play.
