5. Diontae Johnson, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers at Philadelphia Eagles
The Eagles guard the edges well this season, but they always do when they have Darius Slay on one side. One receiver per team usually gets close to or reaches double-digit points against them, the rest do not. The one that does, isn’t always the top receiver because of Slay.
We’re thinking that could be George Pickens in this matchup while Johnson, the more polished receiver, has struggled to break free this year. He only has two games of 10.0 or more fantasy points and those were back in Weeks 2 and 3, back when Mitchell Trubisky was still under center. He’s getting high targets still, but is only getting about five receptions per game, and they’ve been short-yardage plays.
