Returning Dominators: No. 7 KeeSean Johnson

In this series, I’m breaking down the top-10 returning college wide receivers from 2016 by dominator rating (DR), using our FBS WR database. If you’re unfamiliar with dominator rating, it’s a receiver’s combined market share for yardage and TDs. While it’s only one element in receiver evaluation – and requires age and experience adjustments to tell the full story – it provides an excellent snapshot of a player’s role within his offense.  Consider this an early look at potential rookies next year. Some of the names may surprise you. Coming in at No. 7 is KeeSean Johnson.


Johnson is a 6-foot-2, 204-pound redshirt junior from Palo Alto, California. The 21-year-old played both football and basketball at Palo Alto High School. At wide receiver, KeeSean turned 58 receptions into 1,015 yards and 14 touchdowns his senior year. On the defensive side of the ball, Johnson made 38 tackles and put his sure hands to good use by grabbing three interceptions. He showed up on special teams as well, returning three punts for TDs. 247 Sports gave Johnson a two-star rating, and he signed with Fresno State in February of 2014 to follow in the footsteps of fellow Palo Alto alum, Davante Adams.
