Diontae Johnson will be the most consistent wide receiver

Kenny Pickett was supposed to have a breakout season in his second year in the NFL. However, the former first round pick has not made any improvements and is not a factor in fantasy football.

Through eight games, Pickett has only one game with multiple touchdowns and has three games with no passing touchdowns. He has yet to break 250 passing yards in a game and completing only 62% of his passes.

This production limits the potential for the Steelers wide receivers but if there is one to roster it has to be Diontae Johnson, especially in PPR leagues. In the game against the Titans, Johnson had nine targets and caught seven of them for 90 yards and a touchdown. Meanwhile, George Pickens had five targets but had -1 yards on two receptions.

After Jaylen Warren, Diontae Johnson is the best Pittsburgh Steelers player to have in fantasy football but there isn't much after that.
