RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

There was no outlook written for Will Johnson.

2016

Fullback pushing Nikita Whitlock for a roster spot.

2015

As lead blocker, Johnson played an integral part in the success of teammate Le’Veon Bell – so much so that the Steelers re-signed the restricted free agent to a one-year, $1.542 million contract this offseason. He should continue to fill that role in 2015, but has severely limited fantasy value.

2014

Johnson returns as the lead blocker in what should be a powerful Steelers' running game this season. That said, he has just two career carries, seriously limiting his fantasy value.

2013

Johnson catches the occasional pass, but is mostly used as a run blocker. He'll have that same role in 2013.

2012

Undrafted in 2011, Johnson earned a roster spot after an impressive workout at West Virginia’s pro day. Pittsburgh promptly converted him from tight end to fullback.
