Summary

Diontae Johnson could be the new Emmanuel Sanders for the Pittsburgh Steelers. The third-round rookie from Toledo has amazing speed to get open deep and gain separation after the break. Johnson is not afraid of running routes over the middle and can secure off-target passes with ease. He should be able to earn the trust of QB Ben Roethlisberger in a hurry with this skill set. Johnson is a playmaker and is just a big play waiting to happen because of his speed and elusiveness. He's more of a player for dynasty formats, but be on the lookout for Johnson. There's a chance he could rise up the depth chart faster than most would expect. (May 10)
