  • Steelers' Diontae Johnson: Leads team in targets Week 6

    Johnson caught nine of 13 targets for 71 yards in Sunday's 23-20 overtime win over Seattle.

    Johnson also added 25 yards on a beautifully drawn up end-around that almost got the receiver into the end zone. Last week's stat line (two receptions for 72 yards and a TD) was a bit of an anomaly volume-wise given the low total pass attempts, but Sunday's double-digit targets was a better representation of what kind of usage we could see from Johnson going forward now that JuJu Smith-Schuster (shoulder) is on IR. The Steelers are entering their bye week, with a matchup against the Browns set for Week 8.

  • Steelers' Diontae Johnson: Productive despite limited targets

    Johnson secured both of his targets for 72 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-19 win over the Broncos.

    Johnson had been targeted at least 10 times in each of his first three appearances of 2021, but he saw fewer looks in Week 5 as the Steelers had a season-low 25 pass attempts. However, the 25-year-old hauled in a 50-yard touchdown early in the first quarter, which was his longest catch of the year. Johnson has brought in 25 of 37 targets for 305 yards and three touchdowns across his first four appearances this season.

  • Steelers' Diontae Johnson: Catches TD in return

    Johnson hauled in nine of 13 targets for 92 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-17 loss to the Packers.

    Johnson missed last week's game with a knee injury but logged full practices Thursday and Friday and saw plenty of work against Green Bay with Chase Claypool (hamstring) sidelined. The 2019 third-rounder led the team in targets and receiving yards and recorded the only touchdown catch of the game. Johnson has had double-digit targets in each of his first three appearances of the year and will attempt to remain involved at home against the Broncos in Week 5.
