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.

Coach's Decision
September 13, 2020
Johnson (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 1 tilt against the Saints, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.
ANALYSIS
The rookie fifth-round pick missed time early in camp due to injury and therefore is still behind the curve on learning the offense. With Mike Evans (hamstring) also managing to garner active status Sunday, Johnson's chances of suiting up fell even further. The Buccaneers opted to keep the more experienced Jaydon Mickens, who can also help on special teams, active as the No. 5 receiver versus New Orleans.
