Tyler Johnson
23-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Johnson's lot in his rookie season essentially was the wide-receiver version of running back Ke'Shawn Vaughn's. Like his fellow 2020 draftee, Johnson was stuck behind multiple capable veterans on the depth chart and consequently finished with a modest 12-169-2 line on 17 targets across 14 games. The Minnesota product was well regarded by the coaching staff, however, and he stood out for his ability to make difficult, contested catches. The increasing trust was illustrated by the fact he saw 46 offensive snaps in Tampa Bay's first three postseason games. With some valuable experience under his belt, Johnson could push Scotty Miller for the No. 4 receiver role this summer, or, at minimum, earn an appreciable boost in work in his second season.

September 14, 2021
Johnson failed to come up with his only target during the Buccaneers' 31-29 win over the Cowboys on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
The second-year wideout logged just three snaps from scrimmage, so the lack of action on offense was unsurprising. Johnson's empty stat line could unfortunately be par from the course for him on many weeks while the top wideout trio of Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Antonio Brown is healthy.

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.
