Summary

Wide Receiver Rank: #451All Players: #1464
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

Retired WR Calvin Johnson is not expected to return to the Detroit Lions and play in 2016, according to general manager Bob Quinn. Quinn said he has not thought about a possible return for Johnson because of the conservations the two had before Johnson made the decision.

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford said he knew the NFL was 'wearing on' retired WR Calvin Johnson. 'Not to say that I expected it, but I wasn't shocked,' Stafford said Friday, March 25. 'I've known Calvin for seven years and know the effort and the attitude that he plays with, and it takes a toll on people. And he was catching quite a few passes and getting hit quite a bunch, and so it takes a toll.'

The Detroit Lions continue to wait on WR Calvin Johnson as he contemplates retirement. President Rod Wood said that he doesn't have a sense of what Johnson plans on doing, and there is no definitive timetable for a decision. The start of the new league year isn't really a deadline because they want to give Johnson all the time he needs. Johnson carries a $24 million salary cap hit in 2016.

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson's body and injuries are the main reason he is contemplating retirement, according to WR teammate Golden Tate. 'But his body just isn't holding up. With his body type, and how he plays the game, he plays at a high level all the time for a bunch of years,' Tate said. Johnson needed weekly knee drains in 2013 in order to play, and he missed three games and was used as a decoy in two other games with a high ankle sprain in 2014. Johnson also battled ankle injuries this year.

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson is staying in touch with team president Rod Wood, and Wood said he hopes to introduce Johnson to general manager Bob Quinn sometime next week.
