Tyler Johnson
22-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
2020 Fantasy Outlook
The consensus on Johnson is that he was short-changed by the draft process, as the prolific Minnesota alum's college production was befitting of a higher selection. Johnson finished his four-year Golden Gophers career with 33 touchdowns over 43 games and a combined 164 receptions and 2,487 yards over his last two college seasons. The 21-year-old could make a strong case for a solid rookie role, considering he displayed an impressive degree of red-zone prowess during his college days. Johnson led all Power 5 schools in red-zone catches, red-zone receiving yards (320) and red-zone touchdown receptions (23) from 2016 through 2019, the type of track record that could lead to a rapid rapport with new Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady. However, Johnson will have to outperform a pair of incumbent receivers in Scott Miller and Justin Watson to secure the No. 3 receiver job, so training camp and preseason project to be particularly critical for the rookie.

Quiet in Super Bowl LV win
WRTampa Bay Buccaneers
February 8, 2021
Johnson failed to bring in his only target during the Buccaneers' 31-9 win over the Chiefs during Super Bowl LV on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Unlike the divisional-round and NFC Championship Game wins over the Saints and Packers, Johnson was unable to make an appearance on the stat sheet Sunday. However, the rookie did record one reception for double-digit yardage in four of the five games leading into Super Bowl LV, and he finished the regular campaign with 12 catches for 169 yards and two touchdowns. The 22-year-old was unsurprisingly buried on the depth chart for most of his first pro season, particularly after Antonio Brown was signed midseason. However, with both Brown and Chris Godwin ticketed for unrestricted free agency, there's a chance Johnson sees a bump in opportunity in 2021.
