Minnesota Golden Gophers
2018 Fantasy Outlook
The Gopher air game was painful to watch last year, but that didn't stop Johnson from posting remarkable production. While 677 yards and seven touchdowns might not move the needle at a glance, the fact that he did that on a team that threw for just 1,513 yards and nine touchdowns adds important perspective. He posted those numbers despite a wrist injury limiting him to 10 games, too. Johnson was one of the nation's most productive receivers when adjusting for opportunity, and his numbers could improve significantly if Minnesota fields some decent quarterback play.

January 14, 2019
Johnson will return to school for his senior season, Andy Greder of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
ANALYSIS
Johnson's breakout 2018 campaign led some to believe that he was headed to the NFL, but the Minnesota wideout will instead turn his sights to the 2019 season. Last year, Johnson hauled in 78 receptions for 1,169 yards and 12 touchdowns. The production was good enough to earn him All Big-Ten honors. Johnson should headline the Minnesota offense next season.
