2018 Fantasy Outlook
Despite possessing the ideal measurables (6-foot-4, 226 pounds) of a red zone threat, Johnson was lost in the shuffle when the Nittany Lions reached the area last season, notching only one touchdown. Though Trace McSorley spread his targets around pretty evenly in 2017, the departures of DaeSean Hamilton, Saquon Barkley and Mike Gesicki will likely push Johnson to the forefront of the Nittany Lions' offense. Considering he already garnered 80 targets last season, it's reasonable to anticipate him reaching 100 and adding more trips to the end zone during 2018. Read Past Outlooks
Headed to Eugene
February 14, 2019
Johnson announced Thursday via his personal Twitter account that he would transfer from Penn State to Oregon.
A heralded recruit coming out of high school, Johnson compiled his best campaign with the Nittany Lions as a sophomore in 2017, when he collected 54 passes for 701 yards and a touchdown on 80 targets. The 6-foot-4 wideout doesn't take advantage of his height in the red zone, owning just two career touchdowns grabs, but the Ducks hope a move to Eugene will unlock some potential. Johnson is set to complete coursework at Penn State this spring and earn his undergraduate degree, so he'll be eligible immediately in 2019 as a graduate transfer in what will be his final collegiate season. He'll have the luxury of playing with a top quarterback prospect for the 2020 NFL Draft in Justin Herbert and should step into a starting role in three wideout formations with Jaylon Redd and Brenden Schooler.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
The Penn State faithful have waited patiently for Johnson to live up to his lofty hype, and this could be the year it finally comes to fruition. To be clear, Penn State has a number of promising and established receiving targets such as DaeSean Hamilton, Saeed Blacknall, and DeAndre Thompkins along with tight end Mike Gesicki. However, Johnson (6-4, 227) has unrivaled size among Penn State wideouts and he's been looking extremely impressive throughout spring and summer workouts. In limited action last season, Johnson pulled in two receptions -- but they went for a total of 70 yards. Even if Hamilton, Blacknall, and Thompkins all begin the year as starters, Johnson should work his way into the mix and become one of Penn State's most dangerous down field and red zone threats.
