5. Bisi Johnson, WR
- Yards per Target: 6.34 yards
- Percentage of Touchdowns to Target: 7.31 percent
- Percentage of First Downs to Target: 34.14 percent
Kirk Cousins has not had competent continuity at the WR3 position in the last two seasons, so Bisi Johnson notches a spot on this list almost by default.
Johnson was a seventh-round discovery by general manager Rick Spielman. He joined Minnesota by the way of Colorado State University and played a role within the Vikings offense from the jump. Now, he was not elite by any stretch of the imagination, but his 294 receiving yards was a serviceable output. The WR3 productivity had been rather anemic since wideout Jarius Wright departed for Carolina. This, in large part, is due to the aforementioned Laquon Treadwell not fulfilling the team’s once-grandiose plans for his career.
In 2020, Johnson will again compete for the same position he filled last season. The team inked former Tennessee Titans wide receiver Tajae Sharpe in free agency to vie for playing time. Training camp is underway in Eagan, Minnesota, and the WR3 duel is prophecized to be one of the most intriguing.
