    Steelers' Will Johnson: Finishes season as inactive

    Johnson was inactive Sunday for Pittsburgh's game against Denver. The unrestricted free agent, continued to excel in his role as lead blocker this season, with the Steelers' rushing game finishing eighth in the league with a 4.4 average per carry. Johnson extended his consecutive regular season games played streak to 47, the third longest active consecutive games played streak among NFL fullbacks, but had just four carries for seven yards, and caught two of four targets for another 16 yards. As important as he is to Pittsburgh, Johnson has no fantasy relevance whatsoever.
