  • Vikings' Bisi Johnson: Zero-target finale

    Johnson didn't see a single target Week 17 and ended the 2020 campaign catching 14 of 19 targets for 189 yards across 16 games.

    In his second season with the Vikings, Johnson played a much quieter role and didn't see even half the targets (44) as last year. With Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson as the primary receivers and Chad Beebe passing him on the depth chart, the 2019 seventh-round pick wasn't able to have the same number of opportunities. Depending how Minnesota proceeds in the offseason -- especially as it pertains to Beebe, a restricted free agent -- Johnson may have even more competition for the No. 3 wide receiver role in 2021.

  • Vikings' Chad Beebe: Becomes regular in offense

    Beebe ended the season catching 20 of 30 targets for 201 yards and two touchdowns in 14 games.

    In his third year with the Vikings, Beebe emerged as a capable backup and achieved career highs in receptions, targets, yards, touchdowns and appearances. This was the first season the 26-year-old was a regular on offense, but it remains to be seen if Minnesota will retain the upcoming restricted free agent.

  • Vikings' Tyler Conklin: Finishes season with 19 receptions

    Conklin completed the 2020 campaign catching 19 of his 26 targets for 194 yards and one touchdown.

    In his third season with the Vikings, the 2018 fifth-round pick had career highs in receptions and yards. The tight end also scored his first NFL touchdown and began to show his ability as a pass catcher toward the end of the regular season after No. 2 tight end Kyle Rudolph (foot) landed on IR. With Rudolph under contract through 2023 and 2019 second-rounder Irv Smith ahead of him on the depth chart, Conklin will have difficulty being a regular in Minnesota's offense as he enters the final year of his rookie deal.

  • Vikings' Dan Bailey: Up-and-down campaign

    Bailey made 15 of 22 field-goal attempts and 37 of 43 extra-point tries during the 2020 season.

    In his third year with Minnesota, Bailey had one of his worst seasons and ended with a career low in field-goal percentage (68.2). After the kicker made 93.1 percent of his field-goal attempts in 2019, he couldn't put up the same mark this year. The kicker proved reliable inside 40 yards, going 9-for-10, but wasn't consistent from 40-plus, making only seven of 13 from that range. Along with inconsistency on FGAs, he was also up and down with PATs. Last season, Bailey missed four extra points, and he added six more misses in 2020. The 32-year-old will look to turn it around next year as he's signed with the Vikings through the 2022 season.
