Player Outlook
Johnson is expected to spend another preseason vying for playing time in the Buccaneers' crowded offense. He had multiple opportunities to play last season, both when Antonio Brown was out and when Chris Godwin was out, and he never had more than 11 PPR points in a game. Until Johnson gets regular minutes and shows more than he has so far, he should only be carried on dynasty league benches.

  • Buccaneers' Tyler Johnson: Paces pass catchers in opener

    Johnson brought in six of seven targets for 73 yards in the Buccaneers' 26-24 preseason loss to the Dolphins on Saturday night. Johnson led the Buccaneers in receptions, receiving yards and targets on a night when none of Mike Evans (hamstring), Chris Godwin (knee), Julio Jones (coach's decision) and Russell Gage (leg) saw the field. The third-year wideout made a notable statement in his bid to lock down a spot in the latter half of the Buccaneers' wide receiver depth chart and should continue to log plenty of snaps again in next Saturday night's road exhibition matchup versus the Titans.

  • Buccaneers' Tyler Johnson: Impressing early in camp

    Johnson, who's been a full participant in training camp after finishing last season's postseason run with a rib injury, has made a strong impression in his bid for the No. 5 receiver job, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports. "Tyler came in in great shape," head coach Todd Bowles said. "I think he's learned the offense a little more, so he's playing a lot freer than he was the last two years. This is a great camp for him. He'll get a lot of playing time, and we'll get to see what he's really doing." Auman notes Johnson has particularly impressed with catches over the middle in 7-on-7 and full-squad drills. The third-year pro has acquitted himself relatively well in limited opportunity over his first two seasons, taking advantage of injuries in the Buccaneers' receiving corps at times on his way to generating a 48-529-2 line on 72 targets across 31 games. With Tampa Bay's top four wideouts set, Johnson is battling several candidates, including capable holdovers Breshad Perriman and Scotty Miller, for a spot on the back end of the positional depth chart this summer.

  • Buccaneers' Tyler Johnson: Outlook muddled by signings

    Johnson (ribs) will have to compete with free-agent signee Russell Gage and the returning Breshad Perriman (abdomen) for snaps behind Mike Evans and Chris Godwin (knee) in 2022, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports. Johnson posted seven tallies of at least three receptions during the 2021 season and added another five grabs during the Buccaneers' two-game playoff run. The second-year wideout undoubtedly made strides while logging 38 more targets and 328 more snaps than in his rookie 2020 campaign, but the signing of Gage gives him some more experienced competition. The former Falcons wideout produced a 138-1,556-8 line across the last two seasons alone, and in addition to Gage, Johnson also will have to deal with the presence of Perriman, who has experience in the offense and brings some coveted deep speed. Godwin's likely absence early in the season will give Johnson a clearer path to meaningful snaps no matter where he ends up in the pecking order, but he'll have to make a notable impact to ensure that remains the norm once his teammate is healthy.

  • Buccaneers' Tyler Johnson: Picks up rib injury

    Johnson sustained a rib injury during Sunday's divisional-round game against the Rams, Carmen Vitali of the Buccaneers' official site reports. Before he exited in the second half, Johnson gathered in three of six targets for 15 yards. With the second-year wide receiver sidelined, Cyril Grayson (hamstring) and Breshad Perriman (hip) inactive and Chris Godwin (knee) on injured reserve, the Buccaneers are down to Mike Evans, Scotty Miller and John Brown at the position.

  • Buccaneers' Tyler Johnson: Two catches in playoff opener

    Johnson corralled two of three targets for 30 yards Sunday in the Buccaneers' 31-15 win over the Eagles in the wild-card round. Johnson should be locked into a regular role in three-receiver sets for the rest of the postseason, but the second-year wideout is a clear tertiary option in the passing game behind Mike Evans and Rob Gronkowski at this stage. If Cyril Grayson (hamstring) is able to make it back for the divisional round, Johnson's path to consistent targets could become more blocked.

  • Buccaneers' Tyler Johnson: Modest receiving yardage in finale

    Johnson secured five of seven targets for 22 yards in the Buccaneers' 41-17 win over the Panthers on Sunday. The second-year wideout was certainly busy, tying with Mike Evans for second on the team in targets behind Rob Gronkowski. However, Johnson averaged just 4.4 yards per catch, leading to a decidedly underwhelming fantasy day. Despite the modest output, it's worth noting Johnson logged one more target and as many catches as veteran Breshad Perriman, so he should be expected to enjoy a solid role in the air attack once again versus the Eagles in Sunday's wild-card matchup.

  • Buccaneers' Tyler Johnson: Four grabs in win

    Johnson brought in four of six targets for 50 yards in the Buccaneers' 28-24 win over the Jets on Sunday. Johnson logged 49 snaps (66 percent) from scrimmage and put together a solid line overall after not seeing any passes come his way across 36 snaps in the Week 16 win over the Panthers a week earlier. The second-year wideout is set to serve as no less than the No. 3 receiver for Week 18 and the postseason, as Antonio Brown's forthcoming departure from the team removes another obstacle for playing time. Additionally, given Johnson outpaced veteran Breshad Perriman by 38 snaps Sunday, it's possible the former garners a starting opportunity alongside Mike Evans for at least the regular-season finale against the Panthers.

  • Buccaneers' Tyler Johnson: Set to fill in for Godwin

    Johnson is expected to serve as the primary replacement for Chris Godwin (knee) in Sunday's game against the Panthers, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports. Tampa Bay will get Antonio Brown back from a lengthy absence due to an ankle sprain and a suspension, but the losses of Godwin for the season and Mike Evans (hamstring) for at least Week 16 should open up more snaps at receiver for the likes of Johnson, Scotty Miller and Justin Watson. Considering Johnson had already been playing 60-plus percent of the Bucs' offensive snaps in all but one of the team's last eight games, he's likely a better bet than Miller and Watson to absorb the larger portion of Godwin's and Evans' vacated targets. Johnson had already stepped up when the two starting wideouts exited early in last week's 9-0 loss to the Saints, finishing with four receptions for 41 yards on seven targets.

  • Buccaneers' Tyler Johnson: Steps up for injured starters

    Johnson had four receptions (seven targets) for 41 yards in Sunday's 9-0 loss to New Orleans. The Buccaneers lost wideouts Mike Evans (hamstring) and Chris Godwin (knee) early in this contest, opening the door for Johnson to see an expanded role in the passing game. The 2020 fifth-round draft pick had seen 60 percent or more of the offensive snaps in six of the Bucs' last seven contests, but he averaged just 2.3 receptions and 19.6 yards per game over that stretch of games. Johnson and fellow wideout Scotty Miller (2-18-0) may see increased usage against the Panthers next Sunday if Evans and/or Godwin are unable to suit up.

  • Buccaneers' Tyler Johnson: Three grabs over 49 snaps

    Johnson secured all three of his targets for 17 yards in the Buccaneers' 33-27 overtime win over the Bills on Sunday. A week after logging just nine snaps in a win over the Falcons, Johnson bumped all the way up to 49 plays from scrimmage, the highest total among Tampa Bay wideouts behind Mike Evans and Chris Godwin. Johnson parlayed the opportunity into his best catch total since Week 10, but his modest yardage still made it a forgettable fantasy day. With Scotty Miller a healthy scratch Sunday, Johnson appears to be firmly ahead of the Bowling Green product on the depth chart and could continue as the No. 3 wideout for a Week 15 divisional clash against the Saints, although there's always the possibility Breshad Perriman eats into his opportunities.

  • Buccaneers' Tyler Johnson: One grab in Week 13 win

    Johnson brought in his only target for five yards in the Buccaneers' 30-17 win over the Falcons on Sunday. Johnson logged only nine snaps from scrimmage, but that was actually tops among the Bucs wide receivers behind Chris Godwin and Mike Evans. The fact he outpaced Scotty Miller by five plays would seem to indicate Johnson still is ahead of him on the depth chart as the de facto No. 4 receiver while Antonio Brown (suspension/ankle) is out, but with Breshad Perriman recording just one reception across 59 snaps himself Sunday in the No. 3 role, it's possible Johnson ascends back into that spot.

  • 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: 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: 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: 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.
