One of the biggest tragedies in football will forever be the lack of opportunity afforded to Duke Johnson. All he’s done is produce when given a chance. In both college and the NFL, he’s been an efficient, effective runner. The 16 carries he handled on Sunday were a career high, and it was only his fifth career game with double-digit carries.
Fellow running back David Johnson left with a concussion, and Duke handled the remaining backfield touches while scoring his first touchdown of the season. If Davis were to miss any time with his injury, Duke would be in line for a healthy workload moving forward. His matchup schedule looking ahead is promising. Duke is in a prime spot to deliver some production if fantasy managers need a bench stash for the final stretch of the fantasy regular season.

The pass-catching options for the Pittsburgh Steelers have been frustrating to own for fantasy managers. One week, Diontae Johnson looks like he’s ready to assume his high-volume, WR1 role for the offense. Then, he leaves with yet another injury. Chase Claypool looked prepared to take the world by storm after a four-touchdown performance earlier this season. JuJu Smith-Schuster seemingly vanished for several weeks, and James Washington scores touchdowns when no one expects it.
Then there’s tight end Eric Ebron.
Ebron currently sits just outside of the TE1 window but has finished as a TE1 in half his games this year. He’s topped seven fantasy points six separate times, which offers a decent floor. He has received at least five targets in seven games; if you are looking for a desperate play who has a better than not chance of scoring a touchdown, target Ebron, who has an intriguing upcoming schedule.
