2019 Fantasy Outlook
Despite a poor performance at the Combine, Johnson has the tools to make an impact with the Steelers as a depth receiver/returner. He actually had a faster time in the forty (4.53) than Antonio Brown (4.56) and is now in line to compete with Eli Rogers and Ryan Switzer for slot work. He could also add value on special teams, having led the nation in punt return average (19.9) at the collegiate level the past two years, while scoring four times on kick or punt returns.

Decent NFL debut
WRPittsburgh Steelers
September 8, 2019
Johnson caught three passes for 25 yards in Pittsburgh's 33-3 loss to New England on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Despite completing just 57 percent of his passes Ben Roethlisberger spread the ball around, connecting with eight different players. Johnson was targeted five times -- the fewest among the five wide receivers with a reception -- but still outperformed Donte Moncrief, who caught three of 10 targets for seven yards. Johnson has work to do but showed flashes to remind everyone why the Steelers picked him in the third round of the draft.
