2021 brought a much-welcomed return of the team funneling targets through a primary receiver. Diontae Johnson stepped into the role Antonio Brown rode to finish no lower than fantasy WR3 from 2013 to 2018. Johnson saw 169 targets in 2021, tying Davante Adams for second in the NFL. During Brown's incredible six-season stretch, he averaged 171 targets. As with Najee Harris, the usage was available to place Johnson at the top of fantasy leaderboards, but the offensive efficiency made it nearly impossible. He landed at WR7 on a per-game basis.
