Lions WR Calvin Johnson held in check in Week 5 loss to Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lions wide receiver Calvin Calvin Johnson had five receptions on seven targets for 67 yards in Sunday's 42-17 loss to Arizona.

Matching up primarily against CB Patrick Peterson, Johnson was held in check for the second straight year (he caught just 5-of-12 targets for 59 yards versus the Cardinals in 2104). Of bigger concern for Johnson is his lack of downfield usage and production, as he's made just three catches of 20+ yards, and one of those receptions came from backup QB Dan Orlovsky (Matthew Stafford was benched Sunday for ineffectiveness). Furthermore, Megatron entered Sunday's game with a mediocre 5.7 YPT, which would easily be the worst mark of his prolific career. He'll look to make some big plays at home in Week 6 against Chicago, but he needs some help from Stafford.

Lions wide receiver Golden Tate catches three passes Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Detroit Lions wide receiver Golden Tate collected three receptions on four targets for 29 yards in Monday's loss to Seattle Redhawks . After leading the Lions in targets, receptions and receiving yards in 2014, Tate has fallen off a bit through the first quarter of 2015.

Fantasy owners could have predicted that he would trail Calvin Johnson in most statistical categories, but the fact that he is behind running back Theo Riddick in receptions 20 to 18 and has just five more receiving yards than the third-down back is a bit disconcerting, as is his failure to score a touchdown thus far this season.

Calvin Johnson leads Lions in receiving in Week 4 loss to Seahawks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson caught seven passes (on 11 targets) for 56 yards and lost a fumble in Monday night's defeat to the Seattle Seahawks .

Johnson led the Lions in receiving once again Monday night, but a late fumble just before crossing the goal line proved costly to his potential production. Through four games, Johnson has scored only one touchdown and has connected with quarterback Matthew Stafford on just 27 of his whopping 45 targets. While that heavy involvement certainly bodes well for his long-term production, Johnson could stand to improve his efficiency in the Lions' passing game, even if a Week 5 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals ' secondary may make that difficult.

Lions QB Matthew Stafford totals 203 passing yards in Week 4 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford completed 24 of 35 passes for 203 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions in Monday night's loss to the Seattle Seahawks .

Stafford and the Lions' offense struggled to move the ball Monday night, leading to just three points before Detroit's defense scored their lone touchdown. While the Seahawks' stingy home defense surely contributed toward Stafford's unexciting performance, it's encouraging that Monday marked Stafford's first game this season without a turnover. Additionally, Stafford came agonizingly close to having a touchdown pass wideout Calvin Johnson , but a goal line fumble by Johnson erased those potential points. On the whole, Stafford's production was relatively limited Monday and he'll hope next weekend's matchup against the Arizona Cardinals and offer more scoring opportunities.

Lions WR Calvin Johnson nets 77 receiving yards Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson caught eight passes for 77 yards on 13 targets in Sunday's 24-12 loss to the Broncos. 

The Detroit offense has been abysmal through three weeks, and no player has cracked the 100-yard barrier in a single game. Johnson does have 30 targets over his last two games, but he's been nearly as inefficient as the rest of his team, and his Week 4 matchup (at Seattle) is brutal.
