  • Buccaneers' Tyler Johnson: Another one-catch tally

    Johnson secured his only target for nine yards in the Buccaneers' 38-31 win over the Colts on Sunday.

    He logged a robust 48 snaps despite Scotty Miller's return from injured reserve, but Johnson once again came up nearly empty while filling the No. 3 receiver role in place of Antonio Brown (ankle). The second-year wideout appears destined to take a hit to his playing time as soon as a Week 13 road battle against the Falcons, either because of Miller eating into his snaps or Brown returning to action.

  • Buccaneers' Tyler Johnson: Held to one catch in win

    Johnson brought in one of three targets for eight yards in the Buccaneers' 30-10 win over the Giants on Monday night.

    Johnson was quiet despite the continued absence of Antonio Brown (ankle), and his sparse targets were discouraging considering he logged a healthy 73 percent snap share (57 snaps). The second-year wideout has enjoyed occasional spikes in production, but he'll head into a Week 12 matchup against the Colts with just a 4-25 line over his last pair of contests.

  • Buccaneers' Tyler Johnson: Three catches in defeat

    Johnson secured three of five targets for 17 yards in the Buccaneers' 29-19 loss to Washington on Sunday.

    The second-year wideout once again filled the No. 3 receiver role with Antonio Brown (ankle) out of action and logged 33 snaps (69 percent) from scrimmage. Johnson was able to parlay that opportunity into his third straight multi-reception game, but he's been under 20 yards in two of those contests. If Brown remains out for the Week 11 Monday night contest against the Giants, Johnson should operate in a similar capacity.

  • Buccaneers' Tyler Johnson: Solid effort in divisional loss

    Johnson secured five of six targets for 65 yards in the Buccaneers' 36-27 loss to the Saints on Sunday.

    The second-year wideout drew his second straight assignment as the No. 3 receiver with Antonio Brown (ankle) sidelined, and Johnson was notably busier than while filling the same role in a Week 7 blowout win over the Bears. Johnson checked in second in receptions, receiving yards and targets on the afternoon behind Chris Godwin while extending a recent trend of snagging almost every ball thrown his way. Factoring in Sunday's performance, Johnson has now hauled in 10 of the 11 targets he's garnered over the last four contests, and he's made a claim to hold off Scotty Miller (toe) for No. 4 receiver snaps when the latter returns, likely following the team's Week 9 bye.

  • Buccaneers' Tyler Johnson: Set for No. 3 receiver duties again

    Johnson is set to serve as the Buccaneers' No. 3 receiver Sunday against the Saints with Antonio Brown (ankle) once again inactive.

    While spelling Brown in Week 7 against the Bears, Johnson logged a season-high 47 snaps but was targeted just twice, parlaying both looks into catches totaling 16 yards. The second-year wideout will have a second straight opportunity to run directly behind starters Mike Evans and Chris Godwin, and given how frequently vexing the matchup against Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore often has been for Evans in particular, Johnson could be set to draw more of Tom Brady's attention than he did versus Chicago.

  • Buccaneers' Tyler Johnson: Makes use of two opportunities

    Johnson brought in both targets for 16 yards in the Buccaneers' 38-3 win over the Bears on Sunday.

    The second-year wideout logged a hefty 49 snaps overall, good for a 67 percent share. However, Johnson saw the bulk of Tom Brady's attention diverted to Mike Evans and Chris Godwin, who accounted for 14 of the quarterback's 20 completions, 187 of his 211 yards and all four of his touchdown passes. With Antonio Brown (ankle) potentially back for a Week 8 road battle against the Saints, Johnson figures to see his time on the field dwindle from Sunday's level before long.

  • Buccaneers' Tyler Johnson: Should help replace Antonio Brown

    Johnson is expected to serve as the Buccaneers' No. 3 receiver in Sunday's game against the Bears, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

    Johnson went without a target while logging his second-lowest snap share (16 percent) in the team's Week 6 win over Philadelphia, but a larger role should be on the horizon after Antonio Brown (knee) was ruled out for Sunday's contest. Beyond starters Mike Evans and Chris Godwin, the only other healthy receiver on the roster is Jaelon Darden, who appears more likely to contribute as a return man rather than on offense. That leaves Johnson as the most obvious candidate to join Evans and Godwin in three-receiver sets, and while the latter two players will likely command most of Tom Brady's attention, Johnson could still carve out a role as a secondary target. Along with Brown, the Bucs will be without top tight end Rob Gronkowski (ribs) for a fourth straight game, while No. 2 TE O.J. Howard (ankle) is banged up after drawing a season-high seven targets last week against the Eagles.

  • Buccaneers' Tyler Johnson: No targets in Week 6 win

    Johnson did not log a target over 12 snaps in the Buccaneers' 28-22 win over the Eagles on Thursday night.

    The reserve second-year wideout couldn't crack the stat sheet after posting a solid 3-42 line in Week 5 against the Dolphins. Given the healthy talent at receiver in front of him, Johnson's production will likely remain volatile on a week-to-week basis unless multiple injuries strike the position.

  • Buccaneers' Tyler Johnson: Bounces back with three grabs

    Johnson brought in all three of his targets for 42 yards in the Buccaneers' 45-17 win over the Dolphins on Sunday.

    The second-year wideout got blanked in Week 4 after an encouraging 3-63 line in Week 3 against the Rams while Antonio Brown was on the reserve-COVID-19 list, so it was encouraging to see him reemerge to an extent Sunday. Johnson has seven receptions for 110 yards through five games this season after logging 12 receptions across 14 contests as a rookie, and he should continue seeing sporadic complementary opportunities as the No. 4 wideout while Scotty Miller (toe) remains sidelined.

  • Buccaneers' Tyler Johnson: Catchless in Week 4 win

    Johnson failed to come up with either of his two targets in the Buccaneers' 19-17 win over the Patriots on Sunday night. He also returned one kickoff for 10 yards.

    A week after producing an encouraging 3-63 line against the Rams in a Week 3 loss, Johnson came up empty even with Scotty Miller (toe) on injured reserve. Antonio Brown's return from a one-game absence due to a stint on the reserve/COVID-19 list and bad weather helped play a part in Johnson's downturn. His role seems unlikely to increase versus the Dolphins in Week 5.

  • Buccaneers' Tyler Johnson: Solid showing in loss

    Johnson secured three of six targets for 63 yards in the Buccaneers' 34-24 loss to the Rams on Sunday.

    The second-year wideout was afforded an expanded opportunity with Antonio Brown (reserve/COVID-19) sidelined, and he came through in impressive fashion with a career-best receiving yardage total. Johnson's tally in that category also was good for third on the Buccaneers behind only Mike Evans and Chris Godwin, making it an all-around encouraging performance in a disappointing afternoon from a team perspective. Johnson even outpaced the more experienced Scotty Miller in snaps by a narrow 34-32 margin, another tangible indicator he eventually could surpass the latter on the depth chart and slot in behind the top trio of Evans, Godwin and Brown.

  • Buccaneers' Tyler Johnson: Records first catch of season

    Johnson secured one of two targets for five yards across 17 snaps from scrimmage during the Buccaneers' 48-25 win over the Falcons on Sunday.

    Through two games, Johnson has logged three targets overall, and he could be set for a nice bump in opportunity in a Week 3 showdown against the Rams. With Antonio Brown being placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, there's a strong chance the veteran wideout misses at least the game versus Los Angeles, a development that would elevate Johnson to No. 4 receiver status, at minimum. It's also likely Johnson could essentially share No. 3 duties with Scotty Miller in such a scenario, considering he outpaced the latter -- who has yet to see a target over the first pair of contests -- by five snaps last week.

  • Buccaneers' Tyler Johnson: No catches in opener

    Johnson failed to come up with his only target during the Buccaneers' 31-29 win over the Cowboys on Thursday.

    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.

  • Buccaneers' Tyler Johnson: Another solid showing Saturday

    Johnson secured both of his targets for 16 yards in the Buccaneers' 23-16 preseason win over the Texans on Saturday night.

    The second-year wideout posted his second straight two-reception tally of the preseason and finished with five catches overall across three exhibition games. Johnson appears to be on solid footing to start making inroads into some No. 4 receiver snaps as the coming season unfolds, reps he'd presumably be sharing with Scotty Miller and, perhaps to a lesser extent, rookie Jaelon Darden. Johnson's first chance to start carving out a bigger role comes in the Week 1 battle against the Cowboys on Thursday, Sept. 9.

  • Buccaneers' Tyler Johnson: Pair of grabs in preseason loss

    Johnson secured two of three targets for 21 yards in the Buccaneers' 34-3 preseason loss to the Titans on Saturday night.

    The second-year wideout is fighting to carve out a bigger role in 2021 after seeing action in 14 games last season, and he's currently in position to potentially eat into some of Scotty Miller's No. 4 receiver snaps as the season unfolds. Johnson also brought in one of two targets for 11 yards in the exhibition opener against the Bengals and has done more with his three catches than Miller has with his trio of grabs over the first two preseason games. Johnson may have an extended opportunity to showcase his skills in Saturday's preseason finale against the Texans.
