Steelers' Dave Johnson: Re-signs with Steelers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson signed a two-year contract with the Steelers on Thursday.

As a backup tight end in Pittsburgh last season, Johnson played in all 16 games and made five starts. He finished the regular season with seven receptions for 80 yards. He'll figure to be a backup once again in 2017 and shouldn't be expected to have much fantasy value.

Steelers' Dave Johnson: No targets in playoff win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson was not targeted in the Steelers' 30-12 wild-card win against the Dolphins on Sunday.

Going without a touch is not unusual for Johnson. He played in all 16 games this season, recording just seven catches on 11 targets for 80 yards. An unrestricted free agent, his role is unlikely to change regardless of whether he returns to Pittsburgh or move on to another team next season.

Steelers' Dave Johnson: One catch in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson caught his lone target for 15 yards in Sunday's 27-20 win over Buffalo.

The reception was Johnson's first in four games, and just his sixth on the season. Although Cincinnati yields the most fantasy points (PPR format) in the league to opposing tight ends, both Ladarius Green and Jesse James would have to be inactive in Week 15 for Johnson to warrant any fantasy consideration. Even then, there must be better options.

Steelers' David Johnson: To play fullback Monday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Johnson will assume fullback duties in Monday's season opener against the Redskins, Chris Adamski of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Johnson will be replacing starting fullback Roosevelt Nix, who will be sidelined in Week 1. Nix is the lone fullback on the team's roster, but Johnson has experience playing the role for both the Steelers and Chargers.

Steelers' David Johnson: Signed by Steelers
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Johnson was signed by the Steelers on Tuesday, Dale Lolley of the Observer-Reporter of Washington reports.

Johnson, entering his eighth season in the league, will return to Pittsburgh after spending the last two seasons with the Chargers. In the past two seasons he has only recorded two receptions for a total of eight yards but will battle with Ladarius Green, Matt Spaeth, and Jesse James, among others, for playing time at tight end with longtime veteran Heath Miller retiring earlier in the offseason.
