RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

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.
