Tyler Johnson
Wide ReceiverWR
Minnesota Golden Gophers
2019 Fantasy Outlook
A dreadful passing game in 2017 limited Johnson to just 35 catches for 677 yards and seven touchdowns on 71 targets. Not only did his catch rate jump from 49.2 percent to 59.2 percent last season, but Johnson also drew 60 more targets over the course of the season, turning in 1,000-plus receiving yards for the first time in his career. He also tied John Ursua for the most red zone touchdowns (10) in the nation last year, but ultimately opted to return to school for his senior season. He should be featured in Minnesota’s offense again in 2019 before moving on to an NFL career. Read Past Outlooks
Clear lead receiver versus Nebraska
WRMinnesota
October 13, 2019
Johnson hauled in all five of his targets for 109 yards Saturday versus Nebraska.
ANALYSIS
Johnson's run of three straight games reaching the end zone came to an end Saturday, but that was partially the result of a blowout contest in favor of the Gophers that featured 49 rushes and just 13 pass attempts. The volume of passes may be low again next week against a Rutgers team that was shut out Saturday by Indiana.

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.
