Last season Diontae Johnson had career marks in receptions and receiving yards. There are a lot of guys on this offense who could steal touches this season and we predict that is what will happen as Johnson potentially heads into free agency after a dip in stats.

Receptions-93

Receiving yards-1,034

Receiving touchdowns-8

Chase Claypool has made it clear he is working hard to improve and we are banking on that happening. Claypool’s 2021 season was a disappointment but we predict a big rebound in the new offense.

Receptions-77

Receiving yards-1,147

Receiving touchdowns-7

TE Pat Freiermuth

The player with the most breakout potential this season is Pat Freiermuth. His mix of size and athleticism makes him almost impossible to guard consistently and if used correctly could have a big season.

Receiving yards-823

Receiving touchdowns-12
