Leads team in targets on SNF
Johnson caught nine of 13 targets for 71 yards in Sunday's 23-20 overtime win over Seattle.
Johnson also added 25 yards on a beautifully drawn up end-around that almost got the receiver into the end zone. Last week's stat line (two receptions for 72 yards and a TD) was a bit of an anomaly volume-wise given the low total pass attempts, but Sunday's double-digit targets was a better representation of what kind of usage we could see from Johnson going forward now that JuJu Smith-Schuster (shoulder) is on IR. The Steelers are entering their bye week, with a matchup against the Browns set for Week 8.
