Summary

Wide Receiver Rank: #5All Players: #17
Johnson had a down year for his standards last year but did miss three games because of injury, hurting his overall numbers. But despite the missed time, Johnson still had a 1,000-yard season and was 17th in fantasy receiver scoring. And Johnson finished the season strong, which is encouraging. He had 100-yard games three of five and touchdowns three of five games. Johnson turns 30 shortly after the start of the season and has shown a few signs of slowing down, but still seems to have plenty left in the tank. He has five straight 1,000-yard seasons and double-digit scores three of five seasons. Johnson is a big receiver with top speed and the knack for making the big play. He will drop a few passes on occasion, but more than makes up for that because of his top playmaking ability. He is an amazing athlete, capable of making the circus catch. Johnson remains arguably the best receiver in the game right now. Remember, he is double and triple teamed most weeks but continues to produce big numbers.
FANTASY OUTLOOK
Johnson saw a dip in production last season but would have been near the top of fantasy scoring at receiver if he plays a full year. He remains an elite fantasy receiver. You have to worry about his health some, missing time each of the last few seasons while playing hurt many other weeks, but don't downgrade him too much because of that. We think he can bounce back this year and is worth grabbing as a top No. 1 for fantasy teams. Expect a season with around 90 receptions and 1,500 yards with 12 touchdowns.

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson should be very productive in his second year under offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi, according to WR Lance Moore. 'It's going to be pretty crazy, a second year in this offense,' Moore said. 'I'm trying to help him with a few little things route-wise that I think can help him a whole lot and make his job a lot easier out there.'

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson is expected to be covered by Dallas Cowboys CB Brandon Carr in the wild-card playoff game Sunday, Jan. 4. The last time the two faced off last year, Johnson had 14 catches for 329 yards and a touchdown. Carr was often left on an island against Johnson last year, when QB Matthew Stafford threw for 488 yards. Defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli said the Cowboys will make Johnson more of a focal point in their game plan this time around. 'I think we're going to be able to maybe give (Carr) more help than we did,' Marinelli said. 'And I feel like Brandon is a terrific corner and he's up for this challenge, but as a staff we've got to find ways to help him.'
