Tyler Vaughns
Wide ReceiverWR
2020 Fantasy Outlook
When the season began for USC in 2019, Vaughns was the top receiver for the Trojans. However, as the year when on, Vaughns’ numbers started to dip, though an ankle injury played a part in that. Even so, Vaughns finished with 74 receptions with 912 yards. Granted, that left him third on USC in both those categories. However, Michael Pittman, who had 101 catches, is now in the NFL. That is going to leave a lot of targets out there. If Vaughns stays healthy, a lot of those targets could come toward him. His senior season could be his first with over 1,000 yards.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
Big things were expected from Vaughns in 2018 following a highly impressive true freshman season in 2017, but he regressed in most aspects. Despite a 15-target jump from the prior year, Vaughns saw his yardage drop from 809 to 674, yielding an ugly 2018 average of 6.6 yards per target. His recruiting pedigree and excellent freshman year remain distinctly positive indicators, though, so a bounce back of some sort should be the expectation, particularly if 2018 freshman quarterback J.T. Daniels improves. It's worth noting Vaughn's dominant game against Notre Dame in the final week, where he caught 12 of 14 targets for 120 yards and a touchdown.
