Pittsburgh Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (head) was targeted two times during the Week 3 game against the Houston Texans but did not catch any passes before he left with a head injury.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to monitor Johnson's practice participation this week to see if he will be able to play in Week 4. He should be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues if he is cleared to play.

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (head) will not return to the team's Week 3 game because of a head injury.
Huddle Up: Johnson will have to pass the concussion tests before he is cleared to play again, so his status for Week 4 is uncertain. James Washington and Chase Claypool would receive a few more targets if Johnson misses time. Washington can be a flex option, while Claypool may only be a possible option in deeper leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (head) left the Week 3 game early and is being evaluated for a concussion. He is considered questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Johnson will miss the rest of the game if he is diagnosed with a concussion, so fantasy players will need to monitor the situation. He has been a popular target in the passing game for the Steelers early in the season and is a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues when healthy.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (toe) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 23.
Huddle Up: Johnson has been dealing with the injury for the last few weeks but should be ready to play in Week 3. He has been targeted at least 10 times in each of the last two games and should have a similar workload this week. He can be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Diontae Johnson pulled in eight catches on 13 targets for 92 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: That's back-to-back games with at least 10 targets for Johnson, who seems to be - at the very least - an equal partner to JuJu Smith-Schuster in the passing game. His biggest highlight in this game was a 28-yard TD grab on a ball thrown behind him early in the fourth quarter. Johnson has clearly established himself as a prominent part of this passing attack and should be started with confidence again in Week 3 versus the Houston Texans.
