Summary

Wide Receiver Rank: #5All Players: #11
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.

comments about Calvin Johnson

Notes

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson's (ankles) longevity and condition of his ankles was a concern for doctors, and the team told prospective coaches they were interviewing about it in 2014.
Fantasy Impact: Interesting. It is looking more and more like Johnson is going to retire.

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson may be offered an extension by the Lions in an effort by Detroit to bring their star wide receiver back. It was reported earlier that Johnson made the Lions aware of his intentions to retire following the 2015 season.
Fantasy Impact: Johnson still seems to have a good shot to retire but nothing is certain right now.

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson told head coach Jim Caldwell after the regular season that he plans to retire, according to sources. Caldwell has told Johnson to take his time with his decision, and the Lions are hoping that Johnson will change his mind this offseason.
Fantasy Impact: It is looking like Johnson is really going to hang it up. We'll keep you posted but plan accordingly going forward.

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson does not have a timetable on a decision to retire or not, according to Johnson's agent.

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford believes WR Calvin Johnson is seriously considering retirement this offseason. 'I think, anytime Calvin says something, it's not for show, it's something serious,' Stafford said. 'I think you guys have covered him long enough to know that he's a pretty measured person, and everything that he says to the public is a thought-out thing. So in that regard, I'm sure it's thought-out.'

Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quinn said Monday, Jan. 11, that when the time is right he will reach out to WR Calvin Johnson about his future plans. He said a couple of weeks after the season isn't that time.

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson told his mother he wasn't sure he wanted to play anymore, and he cleaned out his locker unlike other veterans.
Fantasy Impact: We'll keep you posted on this one as it is looking like there is a chance he retires.

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson spent as much time in the training room as anyone this year, and his ankle injury forced him to miss large chunks of practice time for a second straight season. As a result, Johnson is contemplating his future and has mentioned the subject of retirement to at least one former teammate. Several people that know Johnson said it's not far-fetched. Johnson's production has declined in recent seasons due to injuries. He missed two games with knee and finger injuries in 2013, missed three games and parts of two others last year and missed Week 8 this season with a sprained ankle and played through the injury for much of the second half. He still managed to catch 88 passes for 1,214 yards and nine touchdowns in 2015 and led the Lions in yards and touchdowns. Johnson is scheduled to make $16 million next year and has a cap number of $24.008 million. Detroit could ask him to take a pay cut or outright release him to save $11 million in cap space.
Fantasy Impact: It would be a bit of a surprised if he retired but don't rule it out. He has plenty of wear and tear on his body.
