Steelers place Diontae Johnson (hamstring) on injured reserve

The Pittsburgh Steelers have placed wide receiver Diontae Johnson (hamstring) on the injured reserve ahead of Monday's Week 2 game against the Cleveland Browns.

What It Means:

Johnson was expected to miss at least a few weeks after suffering what appeared to be a significant hamstring injury in Week 1, and will now miss a minimum of 4 games after the team placed him on the injured reserve. His absence could open up extra looks for George Pickens and additional snaps for Calvin Austin in the receiving game.

Our models project Pickens to lead the way against the Browns tonight, with 4.5 catches for 60.5 yards and 0.4 touchdowns. He has a $6,300 salary on FanDuel and is slated for 10.5 fantasy points.
